Mr. Morse has contributed arrangements to Obligatory Ice Level Day over at thespeedgamers.com before; it's a cool concept (pun!) & the musical results have been excellent. This time he takes on the 'Ice Caves' level from Battletoads, which Mazedude just had a great funk/blues mix posted from. This ReMix still has a fair share of funk & swagger, but is more about a driving, four-on-the-floor beat and could be filed squarely under electronica, with shimmering synth textures, a plucky repeating staccato synth motif, deep synth bass, and smooth pads & keys. It definitely feels icy, especially when bell EP enters, with mellow organ chords underneath. Electric guitar is a nice addition later on, adding some edge, and overall while that main synth motif does get repeated a lot, it's a solid jam that lives up to the artist's high standards, provides us with our second Battletoads mix of 2012, and continue's jm's impressive trend of slick production, polished performance, and impeccable sense of rhythm & groove. 'Nuff said!

Ah, classic Morse with a little more funk (which is incredible), a little more ice appeal, and a little more electronica. Great beat, nice variations as the ReMix went on and overall, very strong production from what I could hear. Four on the floor, but five out of five.

Well, this is a bit of a changeup for Joshua here - the emphasis on the beat is stronger in this more electronic funkish take than a lot of his other tracks. It's still an enjoyable listen. In particular, I like the transitions between the beat-centric portions with the more smooth grooves you see with the keyboard led funk. The interplay there keeps me engaged and sets up the song for bigger things.
Solid song by Morse as usual!

Liking this Battletoads trend lately. This is a sick little song, with some awesome textures and chord changes. You don't even need to know the source to get that icy chill. I think I might have liked some lead instruments that blended into the background more, but this was highly enjoyable.

What a pleasant surprise! I love the source tune, familiar as I was with the version from Digger T Rock, Cavern 6, rather than the Battletoads version (both David Wise, both very similar themes).
This is a really slick and "chilled" (hohoho) remix, with some really nice beat textures and smooth synths. More David Wise remixes please!
