Coming up soon we've got ANOTHER five-mix flood... of music from Sega Genesis games!! Or Mega Drive, if you prefer ;) For today, though, we've got the return of Kaijin (Tim Sheehy), who after 6+ years hits us up with a lovely Wind Waker ballad that incorporates multiple themes & reminds us of all the things we loved about his previous mixes, too! Tim writes:
"This piece was originally arranged for the Bad Dudes MAGFest Sampler 2012. This arrangement combines elements of "Zelda's Theme," "Tetra's Lullaby," and "Outset Island," composed by Koji Kondo."
"Tim offers a gentle and breezy arrangement of the songs from Wind Waker, lush in instrumentation. He cleverly picks up on the similarities between the melodies of the songs and links them together to create something totally new yet reminiscent. This is sailing music."
"I love the intimate sound Tim's crafted here, with just the right amount of ambiance to fill out the soundfield, excellent light percussion, and beautiful string & wind writing. The piano accents & close were a nice touch as well, and you really could loop this non-stop to kick back and relax. Play this for your significant other, melt 'em up, and there's the chance they'll be forever yours. (You see what I did there. ;-)
This one's another good example of how Tim's a Bad Dude with a tender heart. But don't tell him that to his face or you'll be dead five times before you hit the ground. That's how the Bad Dudes roll."
Acoustic guitar, distant & ambient strings with a nice portamento on 'em, a rolling brush kit groove, piano, solo wind/flute, bells, and backing pads round out the instrumentation for what is, as Vinnie & Larry say, a gentle and intimate piece. While part-writing and production are pleasant & crisp as can be, it's also fun to hear the ways that Tim's connected the compositional dots between sources used, without interrupting the serenity for even a second. Transporting & relaxing stuff that's straightforward and very melodic without being overly simplistic; enjoy!

Ah, Kaijin. Been a long time coming for a return of another fantastic emotive and warm ReMix from you, and you have done a fine job with this piece. I could really enjoy outside traveling to this one. Well done.

This is a song to ease the heart and no mistake. It's seamless and relaxing; every instrument sounds effortless. Can't get enough of it.

Would have been great to hear some seagulls in the background. Maybe I'm being cliche. Either way, I like it.

Very relaxing, ethereal atmosphere. I love the piano and airy pads.

Oh, damn, he's back! "Bluest Sky" is one of my favourite mixes from him. Awesome acoustic intrumetation here.
Though, I disagree with Palpable. To my mind, it's flying music, it's so dreamy. Great work.
