More magnificent Mega Man from Mr. Molina!! Sir_NutS' last mixpost from 2011 was his first since 2005, but I'm glad to see a follow-up in the form of this classic 1980's electronica WCRG entry, the title of which he really took to heart:
"Yelloooo dudes! What's Crackalacking? Sir_NutS here and I'm like totally submitting a new song for you guys to check out, It's the Jam!
So like for this song I totally went back to the past (I stole a time machine from Doulifee. Word!) to get some totally tubular sounds. So like, for the synths I snatched this Juno-106 from some crazy dude in a Karate Gi (the dude was like bouncing all over the place! fricking mental!) then I "borrowed" a linn drum machine from some dutch guys wearing some totally gnarly jackets. So I was like totally ready to make some bitchin' mixes when DarkeSword started this Mega Man compo.
So like I went and did a mix for that compo with my new bangin' equipment and it was like THE BOMB but still missing something, can you relate? so then I had like the most totally awesome idea of plugging in brand new NES I bought before coming back to the present to get some tubular sound and BAM! I had a totally rad mix in my hands! Dope!"
Reminds me a little of Anti-Syne's 'J-E-N-O-V-A' mix due to the explicit & pervasive genre/decade homage going on' - and for rockin' out. For some reason reading the above role-playing submission comments made me think simultaneously of TMNT and the infamous powerglove scene from The Wizard - and that can only be a good thing. An upbeat octave-jumpin' bassline anchors the whole production, with plenty of oscillator-syncin', LFO-modulatin' synth lead action, FMish bell patches, electronic drums, and a general overall 80's sheen & hygiene to the mastering. The artist really went all-out for the 80's vibe; sometimes a mix only vaguely channels music from the decade, sometimes it's a hybrid, but in this case it feels really uniformly authentic. Stick it right in the middle of a playlist filled with New Order or Flock of Seagulls and see if anyone notices :) Fantastic work integrating the themes & keeping the arrangement interesting - at just under three minutes, I probably could have used a little more, but as-is the mix certainly doesn't overstay its welcome, and every second is indeed tubular. And perhaps dudical as well, which is saying a lot. Great stuff from Sir_NutS, who proves that his mental time machine has a very effective & groovy flux capacitor!
