This contribution to Be Aggressive!: A Gunstar Heroes Tribute Album from ectogemia was possibly the fastest AND craziest - breakneck dnb coupled with chromatic synth undulations and hyperactive chipmunk leads, modulated into oblivion. That bass is gonna give itself a heart attack, jumpin' all around like that; the pace, it is swift:
"After listening to the original tune several times and deciding that the composer was clearly having fun with it, just going nuts and doing whatever came to mind, I thought I'd take the same approach!
As always, I worked a little bit of chippiness into the mix while maintaining an overall modern soundscape. I really like the diverse blend of sounds I put together here, and I think it does the frenetic, ADD nature of the source and the whole soundtrack the justice it deserves. Do you think it's chaotic enough?"
"Frenetic" is very much the right word - this ReMix certainly has ants in its pants, no doubt, but it never disintegrates into true chaos, and it's actually rather fun to hear the train stay ON the tracks at this speed. Emunator writes:
"Yeah, I'm digging this.. The relentless hyper-D&B isn't my favorite style, but you executed it with a lot of finesse and managed to pull off the glitching and insane melodic wankery with a good amount of tact. Mixing is super-clean, which must have been very hard to achieve here, but you did good. I think this track was designed to melt faces and it does a pretty good job accomplishing that - not much more I can say!"
Well said. Deia adds:
"This is a bit crazy, especially near the end! There's a lot of quirky textures going on which gives this track a pretty unique flavor. The mixing is clear, the parts come across well, the balance is good, and the source is apparent (thanks, Kris!). I'd say it's an easy decision here. I'd say this isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but it is a fun take that is definitely different from what everyone else would do to the track! Neat listen!"
This is basically the polar opposite of chillout music, and I'd say that it's possibly too energetic even for exercising, unless your preferred form of exercise involves spasms and/or running around with a sock on your head. Kudos to ecto for doing something different & unexpected and fully embracing Gunstar Heroes' very spastic OST with an equally spastic EDM arrangement that never lets up!
