Here with a ReMix of Pokémon X, the latest entry for the franchise on the 3DS which is scheduled for release this October, is album director Theory of N himself! We usually prefer to wait until games are released to consider them eligible for mixing, but there's little doubt this title will be coming out, some of the music has been made available in advance, and it seemed like a nice added touch & bonus for The Eevee EP! In keeping with the general overall vibe of the album, this electronic arrangement blends chip textures & FX into a happy, upbeat jam that'll have you toe-tappin', head-bobbin', and evolvin' all over the place. Dustin writes:
"At the time I was writing this track, Sylveon's type hadn't been announced yet, so I kind of had to just go off of appearance and seeing as the only music from X and Y released at the time was an arrangement of the main theme, that's the source I had to take. So think of this track as if Sylveon was "cutesy badass" type."
I'll do that. Actually, as some of you may be aware, I do not myself partake of the pokemanz games, but I've certainly been digging their music, by way of the amazing arrangements we've gotten over the last several years. For a long while, Pokémon had sort of a curse on OCR, where most submissions would be rejected and most arrangements just weren't firing on all cylinders. That all changed in 2007 when Tweex & TO finally made it happen, and then Missingno really opened the floodgates in 2011. It took awhile, but pokemixes now have a substantial representation on the site, and Eevee is further enhancing that presence. This arrangement begins with an authentic music box rendition of the main melodic motif, before basic waveform synths and happy-go-lucky bass & drums pick up the beat. Outro is similarlly stylized, with Dustin exiting on more of a straight chip vibe. The chromatic descent of the last four notes on that melody reminds me of the title theme to Ocarina of Time every time I hear it, probably because I often let that game's title sequence loop a dozen times, just admiring the atmosphere. But I digress; this is another rock-solid, accessible, fun & decidedly synthtastical arrangement from The Eevee EP, and Dustin's own contribution to the album he coordinated exemplifies the overall style he was shooting for... & achieved!
