Rolling right along, we've got none other than Malcos, the proud contributor of OCR's sole Gunstar Heroes ReMix prior to the advent of this album! Here he revisits the same source he arranged way back in 2002 (yes, we've been around that long!), with updated skills and a (fittingly) more aggressive, explosive & electronic approach:
"Gunstar Heroes is definitely one of my favourite games from the Mega Drive. The replayability value made it very addictive - there was so much choice in that game, something quite ahead of its time. The sound design, the animation and the soundtrack make it very memorable - whole days were wasted playing this game.
The "Rolling Chaser" track is used a few times in the game. I remember during the board game stage being transported to this room with a wobbling amoeba in it - it seemed to be wobbling in time with the track. I've covered this track once before (more than a decade ago!) and so I had a second opportunity to interpret it. I wanted to make this remix energetic, but I also wanted it to have a slight quirkiness to it, as well as a touch of abrasiveness."
Mission accomplished; more than a decade after his first take on it, Stephen's only gotten better. It's brilliant to see him contribute to this album, I like that he's taking another shot at the same source, and - as with so many gamers & mixers you'll hear talking about the game - he clearly loves him some Gunstar Heroes! Treasure really had a way of instilling absolute devotion in their fans, and I think a lot of that was an unrelenting focus on gameplay & mechanics, combined with polished art & fantastic music. Pretty successful formula, and you'd think it would be more intuitive/obvious ;) This mix starts off strong & hits hard for the majority of its 3'55", but Malcos does take the time to slow things down a bit for a breather @ 1'34", in an almost dubstep-without-being-dubstep style transition. This gives the arrangement a lot more structure & allows for the expansive runtime relative to the source. Excellent stuff from Malcos, who shows off a different side of his sound that works really well with the source material!
