Recommended Posts

Whaaaaa? I thought this one already got posted when the album came out.

It just seemed kind of obvious. You know, awesome source, awesome remix, awesome title...

The original Canalave City theme was my favorite from D/P/Pt (as in I'd deliberately go there to hatch all my eggs and run so the bike music didn't play). That said, to hear a ProtoDome arrangement of theme is honestly simply breathtaking.

Now get to work on Frosty Frolics GBA you Protocrastinator >:D

Yeah! This title is amazing XD

I'm just gonna piggyback on top of what Will and halc said (because they're gonna BUST ME UP if I don't agree with them) and say that this should have gotten a floodpost, it's by far Proto's best mix from the project and it's probably my all-time favorite Pokemon mix and my favorite Proto mix. SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS TRACK <3

No lie, definitely my favorite song on the album. This is an amazing source tune, and the sax playing gives this thing more love than I could have imagined. I can just imagine two pokemon in Sepia tone, dancing the night away to an old record player. Great production and attention to detail, smooth flow and a spectacular arrangement supported by a superb lead performance.

Great work, man.

Wow, I'm blown away by this simple-but-emotive mix. This is some of the most expressive sax playing I've heard on an OC Remix for sure. It's electron-infused Kenny G.

No, you may not have this Swords Dance so don't even think about it! I get the image of a relatively lighthearted scene with a slow dance. The mix starts off a bit strangely, but when the sax hits, the song rolls like butter. There is a bit of chippiness used in the background for a nice touch as well. The song gets a little strange in the second half as well. All in all, solid stuff from Blake, and even the strange bits add a nice touch to the song.

I really don't think anything else needs to be said, cause that kinda describes this ReMix perfectly. Wonderful sax and light melody. A little short, but I think that's part of the charm. Also, great track title. Pokemon themes are fun to mess with for titles.

proto's sax is just too sexy

Definitely getting some major Kenny G vibes, which isn't a bad thing. Solid background as well, keeping the original wistful tone of the source while adding in a little more variation.
