Oh DAMN, it's Trenthian!!
Last posted back in 2007 with an awesome W&W ReMix, it's been so long since we've enjoyed the musical stylings of John St.John that he may be unfamiliar to newer listeners; hopefully this sweet hybrid orchestral/rock/ethnic/cinematic Suikoden mix will also encourage folks to check out his back catalog, including his previous mix from the same game. Ever the eccentric, John sent us his submission in what might best be described as "haiku + kitchen appliance" format:
"A remix for you,
Hoping to forget the past
It is no medley
While Bashō may have nothing to fear, I'm sure Kenmore's ad folks are intrigued. I actually would have liked a bit more back-story from Trenth as to what propelled him to resume mixage and/or what grave injustices could explain his 4+ year hiatus, but what his email lacked in sensicality & substance, his arrangement makes up for in badassery, mixing synth leads, layered beats, and Asian flair. Everything's constructed soundly, there's good development, and the mix of instrumentation keeps things fresh, but the primary driver is the synth lead, and specifically some of the ornate twists & turns it takes on the main melodic hook. It's of course great to see more Suikoden, but I also always love hearing from mixers who were more active in the past but dialed it back for a bit, for whatever reason. John ain't lost his touch, I enjoyed this arrangement quite a bit and figger most folk will, too, and I'm hoping he'll grace us with more poetry - written and musical - in the near(er) future.
