Such a great concept arrangement here from Theory of N; what starts off as funk/jazz jam on 'Blaze Heatnix' is gradually invaded by the 'Sting Chameleon' theme, with execution (especially on those EPs) that channels Joshua Morse & a truly infectious groove. Dustin writes:
It's kind of thematic, in a way... Starts out as just a Blaze Heatnix remix and Sting Chameleon slowly sneaks his way in until it's mostly SC. I kind of have this imagery of SC infiltrating the BH base and sneaking around until the climax of the piece in which he assassinates BH and makes his grand escape fighting his way through the many loyal minions with an air of badassery.
The whole integration of Sting Chameleon is more symbolic than literal. The e-piano is representative of SC and the synth lead is Blaze Heatnix (and minions). It starts out as just a BH remix but SC gradually "infiltrates" the BH theme hence the "INTRUDER DETECTED" followed immediately by e-piano solo off of the SC theme (with the intro BH motif underneath, representing the presence of BH [his minions, based on my previous imagery]) and the title "Stealth Chameleon."'
- 0:00-0:16 - Blaze Heatnix intro
- 0:34-1:02 - BH (0:14)
- 1:03-1:17 - BH (0:54)
- 1:18-1:25 - BH intro
- 1:26-1:53 - BH (0:14) with hints to Sting Chameleon's theme
- 1:54-2:09 - BH (0:54) with SC
- 2:10-2:25 - modified SC
- 2:25-2:49 - hot riffing off of SC's theme with BH intro in the background
- 2:50-3:05 - more kickass riffing off of SC's theme with BH intro and BH (0:14) in the background
- 3:06-3:21 - BH intro in background
- 3:22-3:36 - sex
Had a ton of fun making this one and, while it's not as technical as my first entry, it's SO much sexier. Enjoy!
Sex, indeed. Really clever stuff, and the source breakdown helps illustrate the concept & map out how Mr. Chameleon infiltrates the mix. From an execution angle, this is less chippy/electronic than some of Dustin's more recent stuff, opting instead for a generally more traditional funk/jazz soundset, but there's still plenty of synths to be found. Electric pianos are delicious, and the bassline really hops & struts along with QUITE the swagger. All in all, a well-constructed concept mix that superimposes a narrative on top of some approachable, classy, & smooth grooves!
