We're talking about ELEVATION and nothing more, here, of course... more funky chips & upliftingly crunchy beats courtesy of the opening track off Drew's Take Flight EP from last year. He writes:

"This is probably the simplest track on the album in terms of composition and production, but sets the tone for the rest of the album. Kick back, grab an in-flight drink, and enjoy. :)"

The percussion here is a really neat blend of 9-bit crispiness and some squishier components, syncopated & varied, as a square bass and other chippy & chippish synths lay down the groove. I like the hip-hop style alternate bass synth @ 0'48" along with the swept white noise, like you're FLYING in the AIR and what not. A little on the light side, but classic halc nonetheless, and as he mentions, the arrangement does a great job of setting the tone for the album, but is also a sweet little jam in its own right. Short mix, short writeup, but check it out AND check out the whole splendiferous album if you missed it!

I love this chiptune funk arrangement of the Light Plane theme. This genre definitely does the theme justice. It may seem like there’s not a lot going on with this track (in terms of synth instruments used), but that kind of simplicity is what makes this arrangement excel.

Ok, go listen to the Super Paper Mario soundtrack and tell me this doesn't sound just like it. Because iirc this sounds like it would fit right in.

Good stuff as always halc. This would actually be one of my favorites from the pilotwings ep. I love that lead synth a lot :D

Chill and light. I could very well see myself enjoying this on a trip high in the sky. Nice crunchy sounds in this ReMix.
