Newcomer Sentient Pulse (Brett D'Agostini) debuts on OCR with a pretty chill (for dubstep!) arrangement of Twilight Princess that starts mellower & builds from there:
"I am submitting my melodic dubstep remix of "Midna's Lament" from Twilight Princess. I have named it "The Torment of a Twili." Thank you for your time! Enjoy!"
Definite emphasis on melody, and while staple dubstep elements are present & accounted for, they're more interested in augmenting and supporting the lead than being rude or abrasive highlights. Some really nice filtering & layering work going on here, with intricate modulations that give the distant, simple piano motif an organic, swimming accompaniment. Liontamer writes:
"I was worried about the opening being so similar in instrumentation and tone to the original song, but it differentiates itself a lot once things kick in, as the others said. Loved the section using the more chippy elements the most, first isolated at 2:16. Later, at 3:16, I thought the opportunity was there for a more pronounced dynamic shift for the finish, but the wind-down at 3:44 worked nicely to mirror the close with the opening. Nice work, Brett! Short and sweet, count it."
"Pretty good, dark and mysterious atmosphere. Production is solid, and the interpretation is there even if it sticks fairly close to the original. I would've liked to hear more variation on the dubstep bass parts, as it feels like small sections such as the pitched-down, off-beat filtered bass parts were reused one too many times. But the mix is big, and not too long to overstay its welcome."
While I agree that perhaps a bit more variation or even an original solo part could have been nice additions, I definitely found myself getting lost in this arrangement (in a good way) - the flow is strong, melody is front and center, dubstep bits are neat & dial things in just enough so that it's still a pretty chill ride, but with some fun twists & turns. Another great debut from another new artist - I enjoyed it, I feel like a lot of people (even folks not that into dubstep) will dig it, and I'm looking forward to hearing more from Brett!
