Who knew that Mario's "Ungh" sound effect in SM64 could provide such a superb stand-in for the Godfather of Soul?? Newcomer Funk Fiction (Pejman Roozbeh), that's who! We end our Super Cartography Bros. mixflood with a milder groove that lands on the funkier side of things, which is appropriate given its creator's nom de guerre. Making a very stylish OCR debut, Pejman writes:
"I transformed the relatively simple Special World theme into an enticing groove with fresh samples, paired with an artisan chord progression. Mario's irresistibly friendly voice accompanies you through this funky voyage with playful cheers and James Brown-reminiscent grunts. Flavors of disco funk, French touch, and deep house are blended into this infectious tune for your listening pleasure."
It's cool that the chord progression is artisanal... but were the synths grass-fed, and are the beats free-range? We need sustainable mixing practices, here! ;) I love that "French Touch" is a genre, because it could so easily be confused for so many other things, in so many contexts. SCB director Flexstyle writes:
"At the time of this writing, I've opened more sets with this song than any other song. It's a perfectly-crafted combination of funk and electro, and really captures the playful spirit of the Mario games. How can you not smile while listening to this one?"
I dunno, sounds like Mario may be smiling a little TOO much :) Great stuff that, as Mike says, is very playful... bass is huge & wiggles its hips with confidence, sound FX are perfect, synth brass gives everyone some FRENCH TOUCH (see?), squiggly cross-panned synth pops are squeaky-clean, and string/guitar hits are disco ace fantastic. Nails the details, nails the feels, & fuels the funk - great work from FF, and another standout track on a uniformly killer album!
