While this mellow 'Koholint' mix from Benjamin Briggs was released last December as part of Threshold, it was actually one of the earlier tracks contributed to the album, so it's around FIVE years old, believe it or not. How time flies. While Mr. Briggs continually upped & expanded his game in the years since, I think this arrangement stands up pretty damn well. It's now time for RAPID FIRE JUDGEQUOTE ACTION!! - we start with OA:
"Now this is some chill, easy livin' - excellent crunchy percussive textures along with serene pads and a cheerful melody make this a relaxing and pleasant mix. The alterations were well thought out and the flow of the song was very smooth."
We then jump abruptly and without hesitation to Palpable:
"It's pretty funny hearing this after four years of music from Mr. Briggs. It's a perfectly pleasant song, but decidedly light on the crazy that Ben favors more nowadays. It feels a little simplistic, but the textures chosen complement each other, and the arrangement ideas are solid."
... and gracefully segue to exit with the understated Vigilante:
"chthonic has great talent for simple, pleasing composition accented by subtle and complimentary production. This is no different. Perhaps not his most exciting work, but definitely up to spec."
All good points; while the artist may have widened & honed his palette, even his older stuff has the attention to detail on the production side that actually worked quite efficiently with a more stripped-down compositional approach. I dig the bongos, crisp EQ, and watery outro FX, and while I ultimately prefer the more elaborate & varied style Ben's developed, it's nice to hear a straightforward, enjoyable arrangement that does an undermixed source tune justice. Good stuff from BB's chthonic years.
