José's been so busy w/ video work, including his fantastic trailer for Lucid Dreaming itself, that we don't see as many mixes from him, which is a shame, because each piece he's put his name on has been great. While his rapping chops are in absentia here, Mr. Bronx Rican turns in another instrumental that's refined, mellow, and has a craft & motion to it that echoes the Sega jazz fusion style of ages past. Stevo writes:
"Close your eyes and take a flight deep into the forest, shrouded in fog and full of wonders to explore. When Mr. Bronx Rican joined up, I expected to get some hip hop with slick rhymes, but I was blindsided when he showed me progress on this jazzy piece of work. José shows great versatility with the pianos and mallet instruments, supported by well-written drums throughout. There's a lot of "whooshing" sounds that evoke the sensation of flight. This track is a lucky charm to keep in your pocket when you're flying through the mist."
Swift, shuffling brush work on the drums, funky wah clavs riffing all over the place, rise-fall bass that recalls the OutRun OST, and chromatic percussion dueling with EP over the breezy, undulating fray. It's like a breath of fresh air, avoiding any one structure or letting one riff take over but instead flowing through with grace & intricacy. I think this mix really captures what Sega VGM in the late eighties and early nineties was all about, albeit with updated production aesthetics & the artist's own character imbued into the tapestry. Sure, the company had its share of more melodic, anthemic work that still resonated quite a bit, but so many of the stellar - and often overlooked - gems had jazz fusion sense & sensibilities. Refreshing, emancipating work from José that gives Lucid Dreaming a smooth, airy oasis.
