In honor of our new workshop moderators (Flexstyle, Gario, Rozovian), we've got a TRIPLE MIXPOST TUESDAY for you, starting off with our first ReMix from Treasure's Dynamite Headdy, from Mike:
"Many moons ago, I was approached by Dj Mokram, and asked if I would be able to join his Dynamite Headdy remix album project. I agreed, of course, and promptly put everything off until the very last possible minute. When faced with an impending deadline, this is what I came up with - a frenetic, cheesy, happy hardcore remix of the chosen theme. OCR only has about what, two happy hardcore mixes in the history of EVER, right? I figure there's a void what needs fillin'.
Uh, yeah. This mix, or more specifically its title - most of the players of Headdy I've run into (me not being one of them, per my usual lack of classic gaming experience) know the character to which this theme belongs as "Maruyama." However, a quick Wikipedia search revealed that his American release name is actually "Trouble Bruin." The pun was too obvious NOT to make. Hope you dig it okay thanks bye."
Well, the pun was already made, technically... you sorta demade it ;) While it's all fun and games to us, I think having a headdy made out of dynamite would probably be not only impractical, but often tragic. Fortunately, it's fictional, and even better, the game had some catchy tunes to match the deep, twitchtastic game mechanics Treasure were ace at. This is definitely some hyperdrive, sugar-high, crazypants electronica, but while it's very speedy, it doesn't annoy me like most happy hardcore tracks do. Maybe I'm thinking of "gabber"... I give up. Point being, it's pumped up, but it's not obnoxious, which is excellent. halc writes:
"not a lover of happy hardcore, but I can't complain when it's this well produced. all the synths sound great (really love that centroid/pitch-shifting effect at 1:20, and again at 3:20), but the drums really blow me away. there's so much variation, but your ridiculous attention to detail is ever-present. excellent fills and buildups. the arrangement is pretty faithful, with a ton of personalization. would of slowed it down a bit personally, but again, I can't complain. nice work here."
"I love this. The energy is absolutely crazy in this piece, like a carnival on speed. I don't mind the dissonant section in the middle there; it's a good breakdown and separates well from the happy high energy stuff."
So if you HAD a launchable head, say for instance like Chuck D. Head, JAXSON deBOX, or this game's protagonist, I think this is actually really appropriate music for that type of decapitating & recapitating lifestyle. We the necked can enjoy it, too, as I think Mike put together a very solid, layered, jacked-up tribute to a great & previously unmixed Genesis gem.
