I know "Talk Like a Pirate Day" was LAST week, but get those eyepatches BACK out, because Nostalvania has followed up his Zelda solo piano debut mixpost from August with a full-on smooth jazz/funk take on Sagat!! Larry detects a trend:
Perhaps a good corollary to the accepted rule that Guile's theme "goes with everything" is that Sagat's theme "goes with jazz"?? This ReMix definitely reminds me of Morse, posu, and that Bad Dudes funk/jazz feel, so hats off to Markus for throwing up a second mix that's pretty different from his (also superb) debut. I guess the common link is an emphasis on some lovely keys, as we're graced with delicious electric piano licks as far as the left eye can see. Adressing original criticisms about lack of source usage, Markus followed up with these comments on his resubmission:
"Alright, so here is the re-submission of my Sagat remix. A smooth and jazzy 5/4 groove. Long e-piano solo at 2:25. Tiger!! I added more source material in several places:
- 1:22-1:34 - e-piano comping
- 1:48-2:01 - piano
- 3:08-3:40 - background synth
- 3:47-3:50 - bass
- 3:53-4:07 - organ
I also added a bit more reverb and delay to the brass."
Richard Parker!! Some grrrrrreeeeaaat!! changes made this revision a no-brainer; Flexstyle writes:
"I hear the source throughout. Solos are groovy. The production is drop-dead sexy. What more needs to be said?"
Fun & funky stuff from Markus that reminds me of several other OC ReMixers in a great way, continues the trend of classy Sagat jazz/funk, and delivers on my promise in his first mixpost that you'd be hearing more, soon!
