We finish out our mixflood as we began, with Album Director Nutritious, this time contrasting his opening orchestral piece with an aggressive dubstep mix that still works in some quality orchestral components to keep all those wubs company:
"I took on this source as my personal music style was somewhere in transition between drum 'n' bass and dubstep, which is definitely reflected in the finished project. The "Bowser's Road" theme has a sort of understated menacing energy and I decided to really bring it out full blast. I hope you enjoy."
Epic, over-the-top, and segueing into full bore rock'em sock'em robots @ 2'18", this is an excellent way to end our Portrait of a Plumber flood - with a BANG. I think Justin's origins as a primarily orchestral arranger have really helped him combine those sounds & that type of writing into an electronic context; I'm thinking it's probably a bit harder to do things vice-versa and start from EDM. Larry's got this one, and closes us out:
"Tasteful wubs, here we goooooooo!!!! The wobble effects introduced around :24 were sweet, and worked surprisingly well with the synths, beats, and orchestral instrumentation. Some of the tension of the original remained in the first half of the arrangement, while the second half was all about embracing the energy of the beats.
Justin's been at this game for a long time, so I wasn't shocked that his mix was strong, but I was certainly surprised at how cohesively this piece came together, all while retaining that forward-moving momentum of running up Koopa's Road for that inevitable confrontation with Bowser. Justin's music conveys the need to be careful but while not forgetting to be bold!
Major, major props to Justin and Portrait of a Plumber's entire team of musicians and visual artists for an amazing journey through a game and a soundtrack that made a huge impression on millions. Portrait of a Plumber's reception has been great; when the end result is this fun, traveling the pathway (though perilous) toward this album's creation was clearly worth it."
