Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Absolutely badass Phoenix Wright hip-hop/jazz collab from melody & newcomer Detective Tuesday - following 2P & The Joker's 'Solace' from January, 2013 is already a great year for hip-hop/rap on OCR, and we're not even out of the first quarter! Peter's been growing as an artist, and even his earlier mixes are great, but this collaboration has yielded something completely new, something that puts his sound in a different light & pairs it with great lyrics and fantastic execution from DT.

Stop reading right now & download it, okay?

melody writes:

"coming at you guys with another rearrangement. with this musical offering, i feel Masakazu Sugimori strove to thematically depict the dualities that inhabit the courtrooms of Phoenix Wright. imagine this: the defense and prosecution are locked into a delicate tug-of-war between tenseness and composure, while the gallery is subject to the silence within the storm. every step is carefully calculated and tread on thin ice; the judge exudes equanimity as his sway precariously sits under an unrelenting barrage of potentially convicting or potentially liberating evidence. that's the gist anyway. you guys be the judges (no pun intended) of our success in conveying those themes. speaking of us, to take this song to new heights, i enlisted Detective Tuesday for his lyrical prowess. when pressed for a statement, this is all he had to say: 'The beat made me do it.'"

Courtroom FX intro us in, as the judge's gavel gives way to mellow piano, crunchy drums, sizzling cymbals, swirling string lines, some sampled quotes about conformity & justice that work rather well, and then DT's entrance at 1'01" - "court is now in session" - indeed... Peter brings in a bassline that shows a lot of restraint but then busts some nice lines when it's appropriate and actually adds something, and the piano playing is sublime, with tons of flourishes and waterfall descents. It's sexy, it's classy, and it goes hand in hand with Tuesday's rapping, which sells the concept and lays it all out with authority & style. I'd love to see these two collab again because their respective talents really complement each other and the result is something special.

Nothing else to say; brilliant stuff.

I heard this whilst listening to this radio show, and it was an instant download! Some of the finest flows ever to be found on this fair fansite. Really natural, organic feel to the beat, and it's just so damn cool.

Downright fantastic guys :-) Some of the most solid rapping I've ever heard on OCR, and melody... you haven't lost your touch!

Hey, awesome work. About time it got posted. Everything from the piano to the drums and vocals blend in perfectly. It was already top notch when I heard it way back when too.

Sick! I loved every second of this. Dope flow, fantastic beat, and a very clever concept - I really dig the dialogue and narrative elements. 10/10!

NOT what I was expecting when I came into this mix, and I left totally satisfied. Brilliant piano work, excellent flow in the rap, relevant and awesome lyrics... A+ for real.

This definitely isn't my usual cup of tea.
Having said that, this is bloody well amazing and everyone needs to listen to it. Right now. Yes, even you, hiding behind the ficus in the corner.

Heck yeah! More rap on OCR!
I love the drums on this instantly. They're well sequenced/played/whatever. Great beat in general.
The piano is super sick. This a jazz-tastic piece, and I'm loving every bit of it. Great performances all around here. And they're very well produced on top of that, so that only makes it 10x better : D
Good job on this both of you!

Wow! Now that is a pretty sweet courtroom-styled rap if I ever heard one! The light jazz tone feels so right underneath the lyrics and is really smooth with the beat. I love it when the Ace Attorney games get some love, especially like this. Nice work from Melody and Det. Tuesday.
