MEGARRANGEMENT!! OverClocked Records released DaMonz' Kirby's Liberation Service EP yesterday, it's awesome, we highly recommend checking it out & showing the artist your support with the very accessible $3.99 price tag (also on Bandcamp!), and we've got a humongojumbo sample track to help convince you, with this 10+ minute chip-prog/synth-pop Kirby Super Star extravaganza! DaMonz (Emery Monzerol) writes:
"So, I decided to make something big. The history of this track is basically: "I'll make a 'Cocoa Cave' remix because I really like that track, and it's been a while since I've made music just for me. Oh, Meta Knight's music would fit nicely here! Ah, let's just throw in another. Ahhh, just one more..."
And then, weeks and weeks of musical Kirby Frankensteining happened. And then, I decided to make an EP out of it because I was having way too much fun. :D
Now, I already feel the judges' despair from that list of sources (I'm really sorry), so let me break it down:
- 0:00-1:47: "Cocoa Cave"
- 1:47-3:03: "Meta Knight's Revenge"
- 3:03-4:10: "Taking Over the Halberd"
- 4:10-4:48: "Heart of Nova"
- 4:48-5:22: "Heart of Nova" mixed with "Gladiator Kirby"
- 5:22-5:39: "Gladiator Kirby" à la "Cocoa Cave"
- 5:39-5:59: "Dynablade's Nest"
- 5:59-7:51: "Marx's Theme"
- 7:51-9:00: "Gourmet Race"
- 9:00-9:45: "Green Greens"
- 9:45-10:14: "Kirby's Triumphant Return"
Also, I want to dedicate this remix to my amazing friend Marc-André Parenteau, for all the countless times we beat Kirby Super Star together all the way back since second grade. Best co-op couch game, best friend, 10/10 would childhood again."
Amazing stuff; the single biggest issue judges had were that SOME of the transitions are indeed abrupt, but others aren't, the instrumentation/aesthetic remains consistent & connected, and DAYUM if this ain't some explosive, high-energy, synthtastical & celebratory chip-prog jammin'! Gario sums up the relevant points with analytical clarity:
"Nearly direct-post quality stuff here, for sure - production is absolutely crisp on this one. The arrangement has a few tricks up its sleeve, even if it's a hint conservative on the source presentation. The one big concern that I have on this is the medley nature of this; some of those transitions just drop in from one theme to another without much attention paid to transitions. 1:48 stops and starts another section, for example, and 3:03 just jumps right into the next source with minimal bridging. The transitions after those, though, are pretty slick, and I thought the blending of sources at 4:48 - 5:39 was very effective.
Great stuff, there - hope to hear the rest of that album when you put it out."
And NOW YOU CAN :) Epic, comprehensive, and unequivocally boisterous stuff from DaMonz, overflowing with the type of energy & enthusiasm one associates with being pink and having a GIGANTIC appetite. Check it out, enjoy, and then support the artist by checking out the full EP!
