"I seem to be submitting tracks in pairs these days, first two from FF8, now two from Sonic 2. Well anyway, given this is a ReMix of Robotnik's theme, I thought I'd make it sound as Robotic as possible (genius no?), so it's full of distorted synths, mechanical sounds and heavy drums, to make it sound like (as the name suggests) it's in a factory."
Makes sense to me; interesting that Jack's paired up his first four mixes like this, and even more interesting that the two games have (more or less) nothing in common with one another. Statistical eccentricity aside, what's more important is that his initial batting average has been impressive, with some excellent arrangements, and this Sonic 2 dirty electronica track is no exception. This is a tougher source to handle and successfully convert into an extended "song form," but Jack's done a great job alternating between industrial/dubstep-ish harder sections and mellower r'n'b ballad, 808 bits, which creates solid development.

"The source use is pretty cool slowed down like this, and there are a lot of nice ideas overall. Some of the verses sound a bit cut and pasted, even though they are really busy and planned out. The rest of the track is really fun and cool. The ending is slightly a let down, but isn't exactly sloppy, either, so I'm not sure what to think of it beyond that it could have been better. Could have used a little less SFX and more verse variation, but overall this one is a lot of fun."
I think I was digging this a little more than most judges; while I can see most of the crits as legit, they didn't bother me as much, and both the creativity of concept & aggressive, varied textures kept me glued. This wasn't a melody I would have expected to work as well in this context, and I think a lot of that is due to the artist's imagination & execution - also digging the heapin' helpin' of bitcrushery, generously applied to intro, outro, AND middletro. More great work from Anti-Syne as he goes 2-for-2 on Sonic 2 and 4-for-4 overall; looking forward to hearing what's next!
