Jordanius so crazy. If his ubiquity & diversity haven't already floored you several times over, allow me to introduce his latest musical explosion, a zany, loopy, and altogether capricious take on the "Slider" theme that defies conventional categorization:
"When I first eyeballed the project thread back in 2010, my initial claims were for "Inside the Castle Walls" AND "Slider," but several sources got hot-potatoe'd around often and I hadn't reached level 54 in beatsmithing just yet...Fast-forward to 2012, and the track opened up again for grabs. I grabbed the phone and dialed "G" for G-Mixer, and he helped me give birth to this traffic/road-rage-inspired arrangement. G-Mixer's a cool dude... and I'm an even cooler dude, so if you like cool dudes getting together to make babies... um... Just listen to the dang song."
G-Mixer concisely adds:
"Jordanius did a good job. I made other sounds. It was a good remix."
I live in Northern Virginia, and I can't tell you the number of people who drive in traffic as if getting just a couple cars ahead means that they're winning at the game of life, somehow. We also get our fair share of backups & gridlock in the DC area, so the narrative in this case is all-too-familiar. The irony here is that the original game context is rather liberating in this sense - emancipated from other "drivers," the only thing Mario really needs to worry about is the state of his posterior, given that he's sliding at high velocities & for extended durations on his ass. There's funk, there's whistling, there's VEGAS, BABY brass riffs, there's chip breaks, and all in the midst of the swinginest, spunkiest traffic quagmire you've ever heard. It very much reminds me of the types of cues & transitions you'd hear in the scoring for older Warner Bros. style cartoons; almost sounds like Jordan was mentally droppin' anvils on coyote's heads as he was gettin' ideas down. Album Director Justin Medford writes:
"This is another great example of the creative flair of Sir Jordanius with some synth support from G-Mixer. It was nearing the end of the album project when it was looking like the "Slider" track was not going to be covered. That was when Jordan and Garrett stepped in and created this sweet classic big-band-meets-70's-funk track. The intro is a bit long, but the track is worth the wait. So, stop reading this and go check it out."
These stages were always a fun deviation from the norm, breaking up the platforming/exploration with some nice downhill slalom action, and Jordan & Garrett have captured the whimsy and who-cares-just-go-with-it in musical form, while adding an unexpected context of midtown gridlock. This is the most lighthearted, goofy, and downright FUN traffic jam you'll ever hear, guaranteed!
