OCR00218 - Shenmue "Matsuri Madness"


Recommended Posts

Shenmue 'Matsuri Madness'

It's no secret that the monkey machine loves everything mutagene does.

grainy synth and dubby wonderfulness just make the monkey machine

glow like a burning out dynamo at full speed. this remix is no exception,

swirling words and a nice ethnic instrumentational array bouce off the

empty spaces in my head and make me smile like a mad man.

With a name like Matsuri Madness, I was expecting a psychotic, hyper, and extremely loud mix. Imagine my surprise to find that the 'madness' was instead in the form of a slow and calm delusion.. The steady and laxidaisical drum in the background supported by the original tune. The oddly echoing voice samples as they drift in and out of the conciousness of the song, the slow build into each new sample... all these things draw you into the overall remix itself. Sit down and relax. Close your eyes and listen to the beat and the voices... You can slowly feel the delusion take over... feel yourself being pulled into the world of Shenmue...

The vocal samples used were good at filling up the soundscape, but other than that I found them a bit more distracting than anything else. That said, the overall feel of the piece is quite great, the instrumentation used was also quite good.


But there is a place reserved in hell for that 20 second fade outro. DOOOOOOOOM!!!!
