Chun-Li & C. Viper team up for some damsel-in-your-FACE, girl-on-girl action!!
I THINK I'm still allowed to say that... right? While would-be cultural critics continue an attempted demonization of every possible female game stereotype known to homo sapiens, including lopsided complaints about the practicality of costumes & accusations of objectification that unknowingly resuscitate failed fringe feminism from the 1970's, I'm personally still playing & enjoying fighting games and SOMEHOW managing to respect women at the SAME TIME!! Impressive, eh? How DO I do it?? Not that there aren't plenty of serious gripes & worthwhile critiques being leveled at gaming (as well there should be - long overdue), it's just that it's damn hard to separate the rationally-concerned wheat from the "this bothers me because I don't like it!!" chaff. If you want my personal advice on extricating the two, well... wheat informs, improves, digests, evolves, includes, and avoids the tempting, cheap thrills of unilateral categorization, knee-jerk mob mentality, and intolerance for dissent. Chaff, on the other hand...
But I digress; OA brings us a sweet upbeat treat with an electronic blend of mademoiselles Li & Viper, featuring different staples from different subgenres of EDM, including some dubsteppish bits in the breakdown. He writes:
"This was a really fun experiment to try some different styles in my mixing, mainly heavy synth sidechaining and a less rock style, but still with a lot of my stylistic ideas and executions. My idea was to combine the 2 themes into something that'd be cool to be played at EVO, but also sortof tell a story of a battle, with the themes going back and forth and interjecting motifs. I took special care with the percussion to stay interesting despite the 4 on the floor, and mixed up the beat for the B section of C. Viper's section, and adding a lot of subtle (and some not so subtle) harmonies to keep the repeat sections fresh.
PS. for the breakdown those are indeed taikos, and yes I realize Chun Li is Chinese and not Japanese, but they sound so damn badass they get to stay. :P"
I'm glad he included that PS, because as we all know, the punishment for "Asian Instrumentation Faux Pas" has historically been decapitation; use those shakuhachis wisely... This mix was made for the World Warrior Remix Royale compo that Shariq helmed; very cool to finally be posting some of the excellent entries! OA keeps this mix primarily electronic but incorporates a lot of different ideas & motifs, including the aforementioned Asian instrumentation, for an arrangement that keeps developing & keeps the energy levels high. I think in the end Chun scores a pretty decisive victory, as her pentatonically super-catchy melody is a little more dominant than C.'s, but it's a great fight & a great intertwining of the motifs by any measure. Excellent, enjoyable, & accessible arrangement of SF2 & SF4's violent femmes!

So yeah, this song is pretty badass - I've always been big fan of world-infused music, but it's especially great when it comes to such dance stuff, because you've got a song packed with energy that has a touch of light and elegant asian atmosphere and it's hard not to fall in love with all the effort here. Great job, Andrew!

I like how the background beat seems to build up to the transition.
And when it does change, it feels like a smooth pivot.

well taikos are Chinese in origin but now there Japanese so it's fine

YEAH! Awesome blend of chinese melodic content with modern trance and half-time dubsteppish moments (and JAPANESE TAIKOS, GEEZ MAN WHAT WERE YOU THINKING ). Not much nits I can pick here.

OA missed the golden opportunity to name this ReMix "C+C Music Factory." :'-(
Haha, this came off funnier to me than it should have.
Seems like while Guile's theme may go with everything in general, Chun-li's theme goes with just about any kind of ReMix with another Street Fighter. Sweet electronica OA. You nailed the beat and the energy quite well.

After combining these two themes, OA missed the golden opportunity to name this ReMix "C+C Music Factory." :'-(
