KID CHAMELEON!! We've been a little light on the Sega, lately, what with FF6 & POKEMANZ taking up so many cycles, but I'm thrilled to be posting our first ReMix of one of the more unsung heroes (get it?) of the 16-bit era. This highly unusual & nearly uncategorizable mix from the singular Sir Jordanius is filled to the brim with funk, fusion, wah, bass, retro, grease, grime, and some more modern electro/dubstep elements strewn here and there. It's a chimera, but it's a fresh & flagrantly funky one, and I'm glad the artist revised it based on judge comments into a freaky, flamboyant Frankenstein. Given that the protagonist is famed & named for his transformative abilities, it seems fitting that our first arrangement of the game's music embraces the same principles. Jordan writes:
"I started working on this arrangement way back in 2008 when I intended to make an album of remixes from my favorite video games, but since then that specific project has unfortunately been undergoing the Dr. Dre Detox treatment. Throughout the years, this mix has had several iterations, and after a while I just tossed it aside altogether (every now and then I'd resub it to the judges and a few weeks later resubmit a different version, because I just kept on getting dissatisfied with the results). After hearing Benjamin Briggs' "Trash FM" and receiving an email from DrumJ8, I finally had enough motivation to focus on making a "Mord-Fustang-meets-Daft-Punk-meets-Ratatat" type arrangement that I could be pleased with. Long story short, this is the precise song (both OCR-wise and personal music-wise) that left a benchmark in my musical pursuits by making me realize the grave news that I suffer from the terrible, terrible disease known as perfectionism. T_T Here's to hoping it paid off!"
As a fellow victim of this paralyzing, demoralizing condition, I can appreciate where he's coming from. I'm stoked that this mix is finally seeing the light of day on OCR, though, as every mix Jordan releases is a little microcosm unto itself, this is a sound/aesthetic we don't hear too often, and let's be honest - Kid Chameleon needed the love. He was feeling lonely, bouncing around all day on rubber blocks in a silly samurai outfit, so these jams should make him very happy. They certainly made OA happy:
"It's like a pizza with the entire menu on it! YUM! Thank you for fixing the timing on the beats. It takes several listens to figure out what the heck is going on, but it's definitely time well spent. I love it."
And Larry as well:
"Loved the arrangement before, and this only tightens the screws and removes the grating production, all without sacrificing any of its character. Great work by Jordan (just co-signing after the fact)! He holds his mixes often, but they're always worth the wait. :-)"
You have to hear this mix to believe it, as there's a textural cornucopia baked in that is highly referential & unpredictably diverse, yet it all comes together in a mix that takes you for a ride (HD) & has a lot of fun doing it. Please Sir, may we have some.... more?? Completely unique & wonderfully iconoclastic take on KC's jams.
