Our FIRST EVAR ReMix of Sonic Chaos for the Game Gear (also incorporating the GG version of Sonic the Hedgehog) is a sweet dance/pop treat from ladyWildfire & newcomer mr_n00b that blends mellow guitars, extensive vocalizing, and an upbeat backbone for a stylistic breath of fresh air:
"This song is from Round 3 of the 2014 Sonic Zone Remix Compo. It's a special remix for me because it's the first time I've collaborated with one of my best friends from college, Kunal Verma. It's also one of the few remixes I've ever written that wasn't in a minor key. One of my favorite things about the remix is that it's somewhat like a duet between my voice and his guitar. I also enjoy the ending section when I remove most of the effects from the two lead instruments; it becomes a more intimate moment, just two friends jamming together. The original title was going to be "Variations on a Friendship," but that was from an earlier edition that wasn't as cohesive as this one."
The interplay/combination of Beth's voice and Kunal's guitar really enhances the mix - arrangement is spot on & makes the most of these two compelling components. The result is something that is dreamlike indeed, blending genres and decades; I get a Twin Peaks vibe at times, and at others I'm reminded of Pastiche's contributions to the North American Sonic CD soundtrack. The reverb & timbre of the guitars has a vague Hawaiian feel to them, and the whole package comes together in a way that just clicks & feels right. DarkeSword writes:
"Man this is swimming in reverb. Not a bad thing though; it works for the track. I'm with Dain; loving this arrangement. The atmosphere has this cool late summer vibe. Vocal loops are used a lot but there's so much evolution and variation that none of it ever gets old. Love how you've combined the sources too. Lots of integration. That's the real spirit of the multi-source compos."
Ditto all that; excellent ReMix that feels stylistically unique, offers a refreshing change of pace, integrates two themes successfully, and gives some much-needed attention to the Game Gear, all of which adds up to a huge win in my book!
