    Okay, time for some vintage halc off MWW:

    "This is a track I made back in 2008 for the Kirby Super Star project, before I was taken in as co-director. This was one of the first mixes where I went all out with in game sfx, treating them like percussive and sometimes also pitched instruments. It's slightly dated in comparison to my most recent works, but I had a lot of fun making it and I hope you all enjoy!"

    Chirpy, chipper, quick, detailed, & happy, with some tempo fluctuation thrown in and two scoops of in-game sfx to round out the recipe. Deia writes:

    "Very bubbly and fun. This track has some definite charm by using the sfx, and as the gentlemen above mentioned, the arrangement is nicely done. Some newer textures could have helped fill out and vary the soundscape a little more, but even as it is it's a cute mix. I was impressed with the accelerando, because of how subtle it is. This definitely sounds like an older piece of yours, but it still shows some quality work."

    Shariq adds:

    "It certainly has a very in-game sound, but more like a modernized Kirby game than an older track. The texture is very spacey, like a chiptune that grew up to be an astronaut. Nice syncopation and embellishments; there are a lot of little things going on that fill in the spaces."

    Poetic, and pretty much says it all; halc is a big reason that MWW finally saw the light of day, and his resulting presence/influence on the album added a significant chip aesthetic. Great stuff!

    “Blowing Bubbles in Space.” That totally sounds like something Kirby would do. Space logic be damned. There wasn’t that much to keep me invested in the track, as I would space out while trying to focus on listening to this track. It’s simple and nice, but not compelling enough for me.

    I love the 8-bit feeling, It's just such a happy song it leaves me smiling every time I listen to it. It's also very classic Kirby; overall I love it! 10/10! :grin:

    I'm in for one. I totally get where the artist is going. It's fun, and I found myself grooving out while listening to it.

    Of course, I'm a sucker for chips. Looking forward to getting to know this one. Going straight into the "OC New" playlist.

    TY!

    Not sure if newer songs just don't hold my attention the way "older"mixes do, or if I've heard "too many" mixes in this style lately: but the mix seems a bit too simply saccharine, lacking in deeper flavor, on the short side, and doesn't have a satisfying (imo) ending.

    A sugar shot. Good for when you need that.

    So, true story, my little nieces have just gotten into video games because they wanted to play after watching me do it. Wanting to give them an easy start, I let them play Kirby together and they love it. So then I showed them some of the ReMix album tunes afterwards and they both loved that as well. Their favorite song from the album? This one. Halc always does a great job with light, happy chippy tunes, so Bubbly Clouds was great fit. Again, I have to praise the use of SFX in the track, which a lot of ReMixes on this album did well Wonderful stuff.
