The production was kind of dull-sounding and needed some higher frequency presence, and the keyboard sounded mechanical when exposed, but the arrangement was awesome. Once I compared this to the original, I was blown away by how comprehensive the arrangement was. Very chill. Glad to see you back after so long, José!

I wasn't feeling this at first. Don't know why. Especially after hearing the original, it's amazing to see how José expanded on the theme. Smooth, chill, and any other description of that nature fits the bill here perfectly. A pity we don't see your stuff too often, but if quality over quantity is what you go for, then I can definitely embrace that.

Funky and smooth, I love the rhodes bed and the soloing. The hand percussion also added a lot of great textures, and the vibes are like the shimmering frosting on top. The leads switch out great, with an organ coming halfway through to keep things even more mixed.

Jazzy and fun, check this out out, guys.

If I didn't know that this ReMix was by Jose, I would have thought that it would've come from something along the lines of the Morse camp. So funky and tropical sounding, great for chilling and moving with the beat. So much love for the organ that pops in a bit into the mix. I like how this just reminds me so much of a jazzy little island party. Very cool.

Oh my god, what an exceptional work! If I didn't know this was written by Jose, my first guess would be Fumie Kumatani, no less! Just listen to her works from Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Unleashed, and you'll see what I mean. This track is so good, it could easily fit into the latter game! Silky smooth Rhodes, glassy piano, funky organ runs, rad percussion licks, bits of vibrphone, solid bassline, and a few dashes of clavinet for good mesure - this jam has it all! And check out the breakdown at 2:18 - so classy, gets me every time! Wonderful remix :)
