MORE SUPER CARTOGRAPHY BROS.!!
We just posted our FIRST ReMix from Super Mario 3D World, so it seems only fitting to ALSO be posting our FIRST ReMix from Super Mario 3D Land!! Director Michael "Flexstyle" Birch writes:
"I invited Arceace to the project based on the strength of his Sonic CD (Temporal Duality) and Sonic Zone Remix Competition entries, and I wasn't at all disappointed. This is a true electro banger, with great structure and energy!"
Sick stuff; things intro innocently enough, with a pleasant, happy-go-lucky take on the upbeat source, but as elements slowly filter in, you'd best get ready... for bass... in your FACE. 1'00" drops it, rudely and with zero tact, gurgling, sliding, & badassing (that can be a verb, right? It is now...) all over the place. Wonderful. Arceace (Ben Clifton) maps it all out:
"Since the goal of this album project was to bring attention to some of the lesser-known songs from the Mario series, I figured I would pick a song that I wasn't very familiar with. Until I began working on this project, I had never heard this theme before, and I had never even played Super Mario 3D Land. Both the chord structure and the main melody were elements that really stuck out to me, so I focused heavily on bringing them out in the remix. The song had a very lighthearted charm to it, so I also wanted to make sure to preserve that feeling during the breakdowns. This was a very fun EDM remix to make, and I really enjoyed exploring some of the deeper aspects of sound design for a lot of the sounds."
For Ben & anyone else wondering, Super Mario 3D Land is a great game and well worth your time :) Things outro on a solid, isolated beat, which is a little odd for a radio edit but which signals the emphasis Super Cartography Bros. has on also providing a unified, DJ-friendly package - the zip & torrent both contain alternate "Club Edit" and "DJ Mix" folders that you'll definitely wanna check out for extended cuts & a continuous jam. Peppy, positive stuff from Arceace, which manages to work in a nasty-as-it-wants-to-be bass solo/breakdown and still come off like Mary Poppins ;) Great to see & hear from Ben again, as his Sonic ReMixes & the one Spyro jam were all great, and this bass-infected, sugary electro gem is no exception!
