Continuing our month of mixfloods, we've got FIVE new ReMixes from FIVE artists who are new to OCR! Some really great stuff; an overall mellow/chill vein runs through the lot, but there's a broad variety of styles & good range of source material, too! We start things off with Neurophonic (Ryan Lau), who offers up a lush, super-chill, extended arrangement of the classic "Stickerbrush Symphony" that you can disappear into:
"Here's the track! It's quite chilled. A chilled out remix of one of the most iconic BGM of a video game for all you lovely people. Sit back and meditate or something. :)"
I think I just might! I've actually been sick the last couple days, so it's downright therapeutic to just marinate in a comfortable ambient arrangement of a classic bit o' VGM. Chimpazilla writes:
"This is luscious. I adore the bird ambiance, and the bucketloads of reverb. The heavy sidechaining with the soft kick is good. Drums are a bit simplistically written but it fits the mood. Really nice relaxing track with plenty of source use."
While completely enveloping from a production perspective, the arrangement here is melodically conservative and also a little repetitive/dynamically static, which gave the judges some pause, but ultimately the consensus was that, for the genre, it all made sense. Larry writes:
"In any case, I thought the variations and interpretation here were subtle but substantive. I don't agree with saying this is too similar throughout or not interpretive enough just because it's not melodically transformative. There's more than one way to create a meaningful interpretation with legit development, and IMO this is done here."
For my money, had this gone on for another couple minutes with the same level of development, I might have had stronger reservations, but as a 6'07" package it feels right & hits the spot. This source lends itself quite readily to an ambient/chillout adaptation, so the devil is really in the production details; Ryan creates a wide, deep soundscape with plenty of atmospheric artifacts, and changes things deliberately & with subtlety over time. Transporting, evocative debut from Neurophonic - definitely hope to hear more!
