Newcomer Air3s (aka SonicThHedgog, irl Adeseye) certainly surprised us with this aggressively impolite dubsteppish electronic arrangement of Sonic 2's 'Chemical Plant Zone,' reminiscent of - while decidedly distinct from - PrototypeRaptor's take on the theme. Both tracks are fantastic, hard-hitting meditations on a classic Sega source. In this case, while a resubmission was necessary to iron out some mastering issues, there's a huge variety of creative breaks, build-ups, drops, hits, and tricks. Nothing sits still, everything spazzes out, synths melt down and reconstruct themselves from the burnt ashes as a relentless bass & beat maintain a throbbing pulse. Nothing feels gratuitous or fatiguing; even as one's ears are assaulted with a litany of explicit synth language, such oscillator profanity feels rather justified. I'm sure it won't please the "Get off my lawn with your SYNTH BASS!!" crowd of wobblephobes, but who cares? It's a lot of fun. Palpable writes:
"I could see some people finding this a little liberal, but I feel like there's enough hints of the original scattered throughout to make it plenty recognizable. I love the random departures mid-melody, almost as if you got bored with the original. Just a fun song to listen to."
Larry, with the slightly backhanded forum behavior diss/complement, adds:
"Didn't hear the first version, but just throwing a quick co-sign on this one after the fact. The handling of the source was relatively straightforward, but the original was there in spades. Even if the drop-offs and early builds could make this seem liberal, I didn't find it to be. I thought the only thing SonicThHedgog made was bad posts. Congrats, bro, you're the new Nekofrog! Welcome!"
Ahem. At any rate, this is a really solid, highly enjoyable debut mix from an artist whose initial presence on our forums didn't necessarily foreshadow such an event. Apparently Adeseye plans on focusing more on original compositions via his soundcloud, so we may not hear from him again for awhile, but hopefully he'll change his mind - I think this initial arrangement is strong & very promising. Great, very aggressive take on a fantastic source that lends itself well to the abuse!
