OCR03027 - Sonic CD (JP) 'Chips out of Water'

Recommended Posts

It's easy to get swept up in this ReMix. The consistent, chill bass was a good friend to the always-in-motion piano; I loved the nods to Sonic - You Can Do Anything and Lava Reef Zone as well. This entire album houses lots of good memories for me and this is one of my favorite tracks.

Quite awesome thing. Maybe it doesn't flow very smoothly, but it's a very enjoyable arrangement with all that piano, bass, percussive elements and some chippy goodness. Very refreshing take on the original. BTW, love how Bev hides cameos here and there in some of her works :)

Yaaaay Bev!! This ReMix is one of TD's highlights for me. I frankly love it when you foray into the jazzy side of things (see: Go Into the Light), kand this is no exception. Great piano work, as usual, just like with your little cameos tucked in and there. I suppose the production has a couple ragged edges, but nothing major, IMO - definitely up to par in my book, especially with the balance of frequencies and the EQ. As for the drum compression, I took it as a stylistic thing, and rather like it in the context.

My favorite part of this song is how your use of the chord progressions keeps the whole thing building and building :-)

What's this about sequenced piano? Rexy, sequencing piano? Wut. I mean, doesn't she play piano? xD Agreed though, the tone was a little too hard IMO. Some things sounded a little distant in the sound field (the drums were pretty upfront, lead and C64-ish arp were pretty far back, etc.), giving kind of a gap depth-wise for me, but mostly things clicked IMO. Yeah, this is great! Awesome writing on the piano and other melodic components, and on the harmonies in general. :D

This is really unique indeed. A wee bit weird at some points, but it does have a wonderful sound to it and the chillness of the arrangement was cool to hear. The piano and chip elements worked nicely together and the whole ReMix had a smooth feeling to it that washed back and forth. Not bad.

Lovely remix. It's very groovy, and yet also very chilly -- the soundscape is amazing IMO. Nice choice of instruments, clean production, and GREAT arrangement ideas. Loved it, Bev, keep up the good work! :)
