Last but not least, WillRock treats us to some KOFXIII electronica, with synth hero wankery and an FM bassline that would make Yuzo Koshiro proud - shame we couldn't play it for him @ MAG11! Shariq writes:
"Isn't King of Fighters great? It's always had a very classic anime feel to it, in my opinion, sort of perpetually hanging on to that old-school Neo-Geo style. Even the newer games like XIII feature great 2D sprite work! WillRock's mix keeps with that old-school feel with a lot of great chippy and synthy stuff. The piano and polysynth leads remind me a lot of classic PSX/Saturn-era games when game composers discovered Red Book audio but still clung to the classic synth sounds. Funky as all get out."
It's a pretty distinct sound, though I personally associate it more with the DX7 than with any one chip; every other song back in the 80's had a DX7 on it somewhere, and it's one of those few synths where the model name became famous in its own right, like the Minimoog, Roland's D-50, and Korg's M1 & Wavestation. Larry mentioned that this mix sounds like something from Gecko Yamori, who coincidentally mixed KOF96 & KOF2000 back in the day, and I'd tend to agree AND consider that a complement. Beats hit hard, solos spazz out, and DAT BASS is fresh & funky, plus smokin' electric guitar adds just the right amount of rock & non-synthesized texture - great jam, great to see more King of Fighters representation, and a great addition to the Apex 2013 album - enjoy it, and be sure to check out www.apex-series.com for more info on the tournament!
