Argle's first mix of 2014 is a heavy-hitting electronic/industrial/rock arrangement of 'Torvus Bog' from Metroid Prime 2. Adam's debut mix was a memorable Metroid Prime mix, and it's nice to see him revisit the franchise with this track. Power chug guitars shred away amidst soaring sine leads & layered percussion, but there's also some nice acoustic guitar bits, a wind lead of some variety, piano, you name it - the varied instrumentation keeps things interesting, and the ratio of melodic content maintains structure & direction. Liontamer writes:
"This is an absolutely standout example of maintaining dynamic contrast and evolution throughout an arrangement with a slower, deliberate tempo; just because an arrangement is slower-paced doesn't mean it needs to plod. The instrumental switchups and various dropoffs & buildups in the intensity were all smartly handled. I'll definitely be using this as an example to point to."
"This is really hot, I'm quickly becoming a fan of yours, Argle. This is perfect soundtrack work - rock drums, thundering piano notes, and a smooth base of guitar and electronics to underpin it. The woodwind lead threw me a little bit, but the beautiful piano breakdown that followed it got me right back on track."
Larry & Vinnie summed things up pretty well, essentially doing my job for me; the dynamic contrast and varied-but-blended instrumentation make this mix easy to listen to, easy to like, and substantial in a way that wouldn't have been possible without both characteristics. Great stuff from Argle - 'nuff said!!
