Frank's Monkey Island cut on Heroes vs. Villains was definitely a highlight of that album - and I'd say of 2011 overall, especially w/ regards to brass instrumentation. Let's see what he's cooked up for Wild Arms:
"The moment I heard this song, I knew this had to be the one. In the process of transcribing the chords and melody, the ideas for the arrangement kind of just developed fluidly. Had a lot of fun working on this project knowing a lot of amazing artists are participating on it. Hope you will enjoy! (P.S. Props for the person that knows which video the female chants are from.)"
Diggi's instrumental sensibilities are impeccable; I wouldn't have thought in a million years to dress up a source tune like this, but he's merged elements of funk, dance, electronica, orchestral, jazz, and... shouting kids? ...into a jam that's as refined as it is infectious, and never crosses the line from eccentric into schizophrenic. The rhythm guitar part ALONE makes my day, the soft EP intro is gorgeously sexy, and while every last element is impressive, there's also a restraint that always puts the arrangement first, over indulgence or showmanship. It's just freakin' CLASSY, San Diego. K? Jade concurs:
"It has been over a year since Diggi Dis has posted a track that isn't a collaboration. This solo piece does not disappoint. It is a laid back and catchy track for one of the ending themes. The first time I showed it to Emunator, he had it on repeat for hours. I love the female chants and that ravishing piano. Everything is simply marvelous. Frank was so easy to work with and he finished this track rather quickly. I hope to work with Frank again in the future projects!"
Ravishing - well said. I'm gonna follow in Emu's footsteps and be looping this to kingdom come, because it just makes me happy. But it's a guiltless happiness, because along with the funk and sugary melodies, Frank brought his A game and layered everything to perfection. I don't really think he even has a B game, actually... Another gem that, following Stevo & Jordan, should begin to illustrate the scary-crazy depth of ARMed and DANGerous.
