Posted 2019-01-18, evaluated by the judges panel


Our first featured ReMix of quirky cephalopod paint shooter Splatoon comes from OceansAndrew in the form of a high-energy EDM instrumental w/ chip flavors & surplus catchiness:

"The super peppy theme from the multiplayer segment of Splatoon, I slowed it up a bit and gave it a lot of Synth flourishes, added a few original melodies, and some other fun stuff too."

The Inkling squelch/vocals do make a minor cameo, but gone are the source's sing-song bits, replaced with hefty lead synths that dominate the soundscape. Some judges noticed some minor balance issues in this regard, but I think DragonAvenger sums it up nicely:

"Man, I still love the 1:01 section, it really tires everything together so well. Similarly I'd like to note that I never noticed the squish noises before and it was a nice touch. I can hear the issue with the saw bass and I think while it wouldn't hurt to bring it down a touch I didn't find it to be a deal breaker. The other parts are still clear and the energy is high.

It's both kid and squid to me! "

This mix really shines when the synths dot outside the lines & do some nice grace notes and side-riffs. A nice jolt of positive vibes & fun, toe-tapping jams, capturing the offbeat/upbeat pop enthusiasm of the source & dialing up the oscillators a few notches. Enjoy!

Pretty fun and entertaining piece :) Absolutely love to jam to this one from time to time. Can't help but mention how awesome the part at 1:02 is! And the following bit of quirky chippy solo is no less nice. The Squid vocals sounded a bit wierd to me at first, but I gotta admit I got used to them, and now I can't even imagine this ReMix without them, haha. Super good!
