OCR02372 - Chrono Trigger 'Zeal Feels Good'

Recommended Posts

Love it. Love the back-and-forth between lofi and hifi, love the choices of synths, love the chippy arpeggios, love the way you layered different sections of the melody over each other.

Very well done.

I like this one a lot!. Seriously how was Gario not a posted remixer before this, did you like not sub any of your GMRB tracks (which were both excellent IMO)?

Either way, cool, laid back track. Glad to see you are finally posted now! Congrats!

Great debut, Greg :-) The mix runs pretty long but I think the length is warranted, you've got a very dynamic arrangement that stays pretty safe for the most part, but covers a LOT of melodic ground. The arrangement almost feels like a one born from a stream-of-consciousness train of thought, which I think is the best way to handle this particular source.

Nice to actually be able to hear some bass in one of your mixes too, dude ;-)

Great job Gario! Nice debut!

I saw the track was over 6 minutes and thought, "Oh no, this is going to drag on..." but was pleasantly surprised that when I looked at the time five and a half minutes had already gone by.

Not exactly reinventing the wheel with it, but a very nice paint job so to speak :)

This track is pretty cool, very relaxing. Everything blends together so nicely. Only gripe I have is it did seem to get a bit repetitive at parts. Other than that, very nice mix!

Nice work Gario! I've heard some of your stuff from the Wiley Castle Remix Gauntlet 2011 and your remix for Hurry!, so it's nice to see you get a remix accepted.

On to the song, I never get tired of hearing Corridor of Time. The bass here is really great. Killer synth choices as well. Overall very impressive.

Damn Gario, this is beautifully done in my opinion. I actually just happened to come across this when I was watching a Chrono Trigger in 5 minutes video, it it went so well together, it made me want to shed a tear watching the video with this song in the background.

Well done Gario, well done!!

I've always enjoyed Gario's work, especially from a certain track of his I heard on R:TS, but this is a new kind of beast. Fantastic melody with subtle effects like bell add-ins and a bit of chippy play here and there. Certainly enjoyed the intro as well as the gramaphone being used in other areas, too. Well, much like Zeal, this ReMix makes me feels good.

This mix is an absolute f'ing tour de force. Of all the Zeal mixes, I think this is my favorite. It reminds me a lot of Why So Serious in that it take a meandering path through chiptune awesomeness.

Man, I can't believe I still hasn't reviewed this awesome track - it's been in my playlist for a while, actually. You know, when it comes to chiptune-infused electronica, lots of words but "mellow, sleepy, relaxing" comes to my mind, but this track definitely is a mellow, sleepy, relaxing piece of music. Gario certainly knows how to treat 9-bit stuff :) Excellent work!
