"This originally started out as a collab with Tepid, but it fell through during the early stages, so I decided to continue on with the track. I worked really, REALLY hard on this track. It took me nearly 2 years to finish it, though this is by far my best remix I've ever written. I wanted to step out of my trance box and try something new. It was also suggested by both Jade & bLiNd that I do so, which I'd like to add they both played a very important part of this mix. The feedback that they gave me really helped me shape this into a good track. I don't know what I'd do without them, Pa and Mother Goose. I hope everyone here will enjoy this. I really had fun making this track."
It's great stuff; I was nodding my head involuntarily for the whole thing, the length is perfect - there's development without extensive repetition - and production is crisp & has a lot of impact. Jewbei's got the foundations down and is beginning to branch out a bit more - I'd still like to see him go further outside his comfort zone next year, but it's hard to find much fault with electronica mixes like this. Jade writes:
"As one of the longest sources from the soundtrack, "Battle Demon" is also one of the most popular tracks among Wild Arms fans. I was honestly a little worried at first, because it began as a collab but one of the artists had to drop out. However, Jewbei's resultant track is the meaning of serendipity. Jewbei really impressed me and this track definitely is out of the ordinary for him. When I listened to the finished product, I shouted, "YES! HE FINALLY GOT IT! HE UNDERSTANDS NOW!" I am very happy he is finally getting out of his shell and starting to experiment. This source is known as Boomerang's second theme and, as one of my favorite Assassin villains, he says, quote, "If humans turn hope into power, then I can turn desire into a blade," so Jewbei and I thought "Desirous Sacrifice" was the perfect title for this awesome track. bLiNd and I am proud of you, my son. :)"
You'd never guess in a zillion years that this was a collab that became a solo mix; it feels complete, from soup to nuts, and while it may diverge a little from James' established sound, I still think his style comes through. As our ever-growing flood continues, one thing should become readily apparent: Wild Arms has been given the deluxe, five-star, luxury, spared-no-expense treatment by all who contributed to this album.
