One last day left in the first month of the year, so let's make it count with some Sonic & Knuckles dubstep from newcomer A.COE:
"Sonic 3 & Knuckles was the zenith of the Sonic Franchise. Sadly, the new games are frankly an embarrassment in comparison. Hopefully this bitchin' dubstep remix will serve as a fitting tribute to a masterpiece. Just doing my part to give the Sonic games of yesteryear the proper respect they deserve. The Sandopolis Zone (Act 2) music is a little unusual compared to other Sonic tracks, and allowed me to be very inventive while injecting a load of grit and filth. Here's to a level that caused many players a whole lot of grief."
I dunno, I heard Sonic 4 was decent and Sonic Generations seems to be getting a lot of accolades, but the general sentiment towards the franchise has certainly... wavered, over the years. Grit and filth are right; this mix is galvanized with loads of raw current and juxtaposes the distant, verbed Middle Eastern accompaniment with 1.21 GIGAWATTS of searing, shocking bass. OA comments:
"Usually when I hear the phrase "bitchin' dubstep", I roll my eyes at the hyperbole, but I think this track legitimately delivers. Some great rhythmic change ups in the melody, and the backing track modifications are excellent. Production was powerful and clear, even with the dubstep grime added. This is a really good mix."
As convulsive & vitriolic as dubstep's signature basslines are the reactions it seems to elicit in some folk; if you're not sold on the genre already, this probably isn't going to be your epiphany, but for my money it packs quite a punch, delivering on its promises with style & energy. halc had some reservations about aggressive highs on the EQ, but otherwise agreed:
"so yeah, really digging the arrangement. it's a great fit for the source, and adds tons of personalization while keeping the source pretty in tact. well chosen synths and nice automation and attention to detail."
Pretty much; not rocket science, but not autopilot by a long shot, this source material seems tailor-made for such a treatment, and Alex has done a great job executing & injecting Sonic with some wicked, electrified stuff. I smell burnt echidna ;)
