The award for goofiest mix title on MWW probably goes to PROTO·DOME, who clarifies the sixteen-bittyness of his creation:
"If you like 8-bit, you'll feel a little disappointed, this is 16-bit. No, don't cry, grow up, the late 80's was ages ago. The early 90's is cool now. Okay, this one is a little liberal in the way it treats the source, but it is pretty much constantly source, just SLOOOOOWWWWW'd down. Don't be afraid to put YES. I'll accept YES (borderline) too, I'm a pretty easy-going guy.
Damn, I love Kirby."
So sad for poor 32-bit & above that no one will (probably/hopefully) ever try to quantify their bus sizes as distinct musical aesthetics and create any sort of trend/movement around them. Blake "Jazzy McJazzerton" Troise busted out his killer vibes chops for this mix, which casts playful lines around the source tunes over a syncopated groove & crunchy drums. Not 8-bit crunchy, 16-bit crunchy, which is more like a slightly toasted bagel. Director Arek writes:
"PROTO is an amazing talent. Not only is a genius with music, but he also is quite the Photoshop savant. Both his art and music contributions "carry" you away. I simply love the production value of the track. To quote halc, "so good.""
Co-director Drew adds:
"I freakin' love this song. The style adaptation might seem a bit liberal at first, but the treatment of the melodies is downright nostalgic. Some extremely well treated SNES soundfonts are the icing on the cake - I mean, just listen to that intro again... so good. <3"
The judges panel weighed in primarily because the arrangement is a little liberal, but had no major beef; OA punderstands:
"Pretty pleasant stuff, I really enjoyed the vibe and the vibes. Ohhhh, see what I did there? Nice stuttering beats and a laid back and care-free arrangement that has a lot of variation and good handling of the melody and leads trading off. I wish it was a little longer, but everything that is on display is totally solid.
The guitar was a little on the fake side, but was well-sequenced, and had a good room sound applied. I guess it stuck out to me in a sea of other obviously sampled instruments because it sort of hit an uncanny valley. Overall a little on the short side, but it is packed with delicious Kirby power! NOM!"
Creative, jazzy, smooth stuff from Blake that intentionally & successfully blends samples of varying verisimilitude into a fresh, head-nodding, toe-tapping, spiralling jam, lending Milky Way Wishes some panache & smoky ambiance in the process!
