Roses, chocolates, cards, romance, and... shuriken? Nothing says "Valentine's Day" like a ninja star to the face from Joe Musashi, who makes his first appearance in 2013 with this chill urban groove from Fallen Seraph, a follow-up to the artist's 2011 debut Streets of Rage ReMix - seems like SOMEONE's a Yuzo Koshiro fan ;) Revenge of Shinobi is one of my favorite YK soundtracks and one of my favorite overall game soundtracks as well; I arranged this same source tune OVER A DECADE AGO, so I'm familiar with it, I like what Wina did with it, and I'm glad we've got another interpretation of it on the site. For his submission email, the artist appears to have composed a love poem - of sorts - so I guess this mix *is* actually relevant to today's holiday:
"Um, where are my memories, of this one gone?
Nothing comes to mind, but blood and bone...
Been shedding these tears eternally
Looking for Consent, I'm nothing more, than a Shinobi
Lost in Chinatown, wayward on the Corner of Sunset and Keys
Bad sushi within me, I can feel that factory funk...that produced these
Yeah...couldn't come up with anything to say...so...throw it up on some speakers, crank it up, and let the beat knock."
Eloquent wordsmithery; I added the links, FYI. This definitely has a grittier, hip-hop feel on the drums, which if you've played the game makes a lot of sense; nice layering and syncopation too, with parts that almost feel half-tempo. Interesting decision to take that main pentatonic riff that kinda defines the original tune and have a lone piano delicatelty articulate it @ 1'46" - counter-intuitive arrangement call, but I think it works. Fallen Seraph resubbed this with some tweaks to fill it out a bit more, and while judges still had some issues, OA sums things up well:
"I enjoyed the first one and voted yes, despite a few weaknesses, and I feel this shores up most of them pretty well, with filled out soundscapes and some more humanized sequencing. The bass and drums were good, and the beat was good. Definitely a step up, nice work!"
Great to see more Yuzo & more Shinobi and to hear more from Fallen Seraph, who's filled our V-Day with blood, bone & beats!
