I'll be honest, I'm a huge sucker for PrototypeRaptor's ReMix of this source, but we're always open to different takes, and Anti-Syne follows up his TWO debut FF8 mixes by switching gears & taking on some Sonic:
"So this ReMix was a bit of a wonderful accident. It started life as an original track, until whilst playing round with it I accidentally played those first two chords of Chemical Plant Zone. Out of curiosity I played the Chemical melody into my original and it just seemed to work. This is my first ReMix to really offer a major tonality change from the source, and I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out. Out of interest it's called 'Chemical Blip' not in reference to the blippy, glitchy part, but in reference to a little blip sound that I couldn't seem to stop in early versions of this ReMix, blip is now gone, but hopefully not forgotten. Enjoy!"
Nice; I've personally started a few originals that ended up becoming VGM arrangements, and I think this process is more common than you'd otherwise think, and can yield great results. In this case you've got a slick dance/electronica arrangement of a source tune that completely yields itself to such treatment. halc writes:
"cool arrangement; reminiscent of PR's 'Chemixtrixx' in style at first, but does more than enough to set it apart. I really liked the glitched out, chippy part halfway through."
"Absolutely love the new chord progression with this theme - it makes it feel familiar and fresh at the same time, and that is definitely what I look for in a ReMix. Great breaks, great beats, and the counterpoint synth is perfect."
Whereas Jonathan's mix completely regulated swing & syncopation in favor of a more pulsing, devilishly relentless downbeat, this maintains a little bit more sway to it, breaks it down, and is generally less intense and more flamboyant. While both are, at the most universal level, electronica mixes, I don't have any trouble telling them apart, and Anti-Syne's take has definitely gone somewhere different AND worthwhile. Also nice to see Jack continue making a name for himself in 2011 & vary up his game selection a bit - definitely looking forward to what 2012 & beyond holds in store from him. In the meantime, get your chemicals flowin' and grab this most infectious blip!
