What's this? Our FIRST ReMix of Korean 2D MMO MapleStory?? From newcomer liquid wind? With assistance from Level 99? Why yes, you helpfully-expository-question-asker, it's ALL of those things... and MORE:
"This started as my entry to PRC156 in 2009. It was a free round but going with PRC's theme of under remixed games I went with something I've never seen a remix for, a F2P sidescrolling MMO by the name of MapleStory. Although the game had serious mechanical issues (grindfest to end all grindfests), I still appreciate its sense of aesthetics to this day and love the soundtrack. After many revisions since PRC156, I uploaded what I thought would be the final version a few months ago when Stevo volunteered to record live guitar for it. As well as offering his guitar skills he also noted a few technical issues with the piece and suggested that I change one of the instruments to the sine lead that is there now. Big thanks to Stevo for being a professional badass!
The remix title comes from the server mardia which was a new server when I used to play this game in 2007."
Pleasant, ambient / new age / folk vibe with a deliberately developing groove, ephemeral pads, acoustic guitar arpeggios (and strumming later), and a general sense of shimmery, shiny, night-sky wonderment. Emunator writes:
"After a while of listening to the intro, I was liking the feel you had going on but wasn't sure where it was going. This is definitely a very slow, additive track that takes its time going where it's going. It's deliberate though, and the gradual buildup and eventual climax actually reminds me a lot of post-rock artists like Sigur Ros, in a way."
"yeah, pretty source, reminds me of anosou's Kaleidoscope stuff. very pretty remix too. I agree that it's a conservative take on the theme, but it comes out of it's shell in the second half. it's well-personalized, well-produced, and the the guitar is a great touch. I could drift away to this.."
Ditto all that; relaxing, transporting, and has the right level of detail where there's an elegant simplicity but still plenty of points of interest. Nice debut from liquid wind, and thanks to Stevo for assisting and bumping the final product up a notch!
