Pumping, poppy, mutating electronica with some dubstep components, lots of lofi/blippish textures, and a very funky sense of timing that picks up & breaks down pretty often make for an interesting Chrono Trigger 'Trial' arrangement from ambient, with some 'Hidden Truth' incorporated as well. He writes:
"I put down some ideas for this mix over a month ago, but the rest of it came together very quickly ...I have made some definite improvements in the production department. I actually really like this mix, and I think it is the best individual mix (not counting collabs) that I have produced to date.
The idea for this mix actually came after I listened to someone's WIP on the boards. My apologies, but I just can't remember which WIP it was. All I know is that I could hear in my head a dancey version of it. And, of course, there is zircon's brilliant version of this theme, which I listened to numerous times while working on my mix. Another source of inspiration was Skrypnyk - while I cannot come close to his level of mastery when it comes to chopping and glitching, I did try to introduce more of those elements into this mix."
Definitely a different sound for Alex on this one; I can certainly hear the Skryp influence, but just from a general rhythmic perspective, this has a few more changeups than usual. When things really get going, there's this manic swing & swagger to it that's both groovy and disturbing at the same time, and production peppers the soundscape with neat little Speak & Spell percussive FX and plenty of staccato synth pops. It's not something I would have imagined for 'The Trial' but it works rather well. I would have liked some mangling/changeups on the DSP - dropping the reverb for a break or briefly increasing it for a build here or there, for example - but there's a LOT of attention paid to synth textures & modulation throughout, and it's one heck of a fun, crazy ride. Those bass scrapes towards the end are downright sinister, and the gated ending is a nice touch, too. Overall, this feels like a playful, slightly deranged synthesizer carnival, and I mean that in the best possible way.

Damn, this is quite awesome. Downright dirty and trippy. It's certainly not 100% dubstep, but I surely enjoyed some glitchy goodness and sick bass stuff. The EDM part (1:00 - 2:43) is just classic and works perfectly. So good!

Lot of gritty pulsating electronica going on in here. Reminds me of some of the classic stuff that were supposed to represent the internet age back in the day. I especially enjoyed the second half starting at 2:12. I really got into it the most after that point. Sweet.

Definite success! I'm not even one for dubstep, and I could certainly hang with this remix and thoroughly enjoy it. The elements were incorporated into the piece in ways that kept it interesting, rather than relying on trendy gimmickry as a substitute for composition and innovation. ambient, you should be duly proud of this righteous mix! I'll be listening to the 3 minutes and 38 seconds you've composed here for, cumulatively, days if not weeks.

So, when people post Chrono mixes, I've noticed a bit of a pattern. People seem to really dig a few of the themes, and don't get me wrong-I LOVE those songs too.
But CT had a lot of great music in it, and to date my favorite take on this theme has been Spekkosaurus's piano rendition. It's great to see a very different take one of those less oft done tracks in a very different style.
Just wanted to say well done and thanks!

Don't ask me why, but somehow amidst all the boo-bops and trimples, I hear some weird mix between Donkey Kong Country(SNES) and Chip 'n Dale(NES). Can't explain it, but this is a fiercebrave mix and I like it a lot.

Yeah, this is really slick. Really infectious groove. Well done.

I. Like. This.

Mmm, this is very tasty. Badass cruch-chip-mix that I highly recommend to those that like a little chugginess to their electronica mixes.

This is really well made. My only gripe is that listening to it the first time I had a hard time picking out the sources until later in the mix. After I "found" them, I got into the rhythm of it and it was no problem, but at the start coming into it I found them a bit difficult to pick out. Repeat listens did help a lot. Otherwise props for mad skillz!
