Once upon a time, way back in June of 2002 (we OLD), we posted the controversial, discombobulated, insane, and singular Super Mario Bros. 'Dirty Mix' by Binster, richBRF, and A Scholar & A Physician. It's held up well over the years and earned new fans due to its relative disregard for normalcy and structure. Fast forward to 2014 (still here!), and newcomer Blen (Bryan Lennox) offers up a Super Mario Land mix that - while certainly not identical in every way, shape, and form - is a spiritual successor of sorts to 'Dirty Mix,' insofar as it's rather... sporadic, let' say. The artist provided no comments, so we can only guess what was going through his mind (and whether it was legal), but suffice it to say that this arrangement of the main BGM from SML has bits of ska, chiptune, breakbeat, speed metal, hip-hop, and... Bruce Lee. Panel was split, but DarkeSword conveyed the majority vote with a nice comparison:
"Love the big drums. Really cool. Nice glitchy and syncopation stuff. It's like Jet Set Mario, spray-painting fire flowers on the side of Koopa's castle. Turbo drums might have been a bit much though. xD"
Nice ref - Fishy adds:
"Haters gonna hate. This is f@#$ing hilarious and I love it. I understand where the naysaying might come from but in the big picture I have a massive smile on my face and don't care."
I think that just about sums it up :) Anyone looking for poignant ruminations, compelling chord progressions, soulful performances, or even a fundamental grip on reality might be disappointed, but if you're looking for something different, spontaneous, energetic, and featuring Bruce Lee, and (I think) if you enjoyed 'Dirty Mix,' then a visit to hipster land will serve you well!
