Up next we've got ReMixer, Judge, & family man (needs to mix that source!) Nutritious with a twisted, tangled, crushed, & mangled bit of nasty electronic mayhem:
"Such a good game with an awesome soundtrack. Originally created for a People's ReMix Competition, this was my first foray into the dubstep genre. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to have the mix accepted as part of the album. I'm a big fan of the game series, so getting a chance to be a part of an album effort is especially rewarding. Special thanks to zircon for his feedback helping me bring the track to the next level. Hope you enjoy!"
While this certainly has aspects of dubstep, it's pretty distinct from the more hallmark examples of such, and should still appeal to those who are otherwise polarized by the label. This is some of the edgiest, crispest, & most rounded-out production I've heard from Justin in an electronic genre to date - those initial bass hits are downright galvanizing, and the mix has a lot of width & swirl going on, in addition to sheer force-of-impact. Things are basically half-tempo until the pickup @ 1'36", after which they remain at-tempo until the ending, which drops out the drums entirely @ 2'48" and lets things coast to a dramatic finish, giving listeners occasion to appreciate all the details going on underneath the meaty beats. Great stuff that applies a more modern electronic style to the source while refraining from the type of glitching & extreme synth belches that might compromise the slick, military-industrial espionage atmosphere.
