Concluding the first HALF of our mixflood is none other than Temporal Duality's director himself, SuperiorX! As you've hopefully gleaned from my comments thus far, I'm a HUGE fan of this album, and Matt's really done a superb & thorough job of coordinating everything. Some of that required HIS being patient with US (and ME!) as we worked with him, and I feel like everything's come together quite well in the final weeks due to his perseverance. This perky arrangement takes us into more upbeat, electronic/pop territory, with plucky synths, a bouyant bass, strong melodic monosynth leads, and swirling accompanying pads:
"When I first undertook the Sonic CD project, I really wanted to remix one of the signature sources in an electronica style that would still pay homage to the original. Listening through the OST, I thought Palmtree Panic's various zone themes were ripe for expansion and could fit together quite well. The result was this mix, which is easily my strongest and most well-developed song to-date. It starts off with a light and airy atmosphere and then takes us through the Present and Bad Future sources and then finishes up with the Good Future source, which includes a square synth solo overtop some Sonic SFX, which was a ton of fun to write. It then comes full circle and closes out with some more of the light and ethereal instrumentation from the intro. I was really trying to make this mix sound like it belonged within the game, but expanding it with some additional instrumentation and personalization. I like to think I succeeded!
I hope everyone enjoys this mix and the rest of Temporal Duality as much as I enjoyed working on it and directing it!"
We JUST posted Matt's debut mix this month, which was ALSO Sonic CD, but NOT from Temporal Duality, and I alluded then to the great things he's been doing for this game's music. See what I mean? While that was more of a chill, mellow affair, this mix is happiness, sunshine, and positive feelings - much more paradise than paradox :) Polished production, nice addition of solo piano for a more traditional instrumentation component, and the shimmering synth texture ending seemed just right for this type of affair. Pleasant & inoffensive, there's also musical depth here & a smart arrangement that adapts the source effectively. Great stuff from Matt, whose direction has seen this album through to an equally smooth & bright release! Five more mixes to come - stay tuned!
