Newcomer Hanging Waters writes:

"The power of fluffy boys shines within you. This electronic funk fusion re-imagining of the Deltarune battle theme aims to maintain the spirit of the original while ramping up the adrenaline. The slapping bass, spaced out square and sawtooth leads, staccato horn synth, and heavily reverbed pads attempt to give the tune a new sense of atmosphere. After a brief venture into 7/8 and an extensive synth solo, we fade out into "Field of Hopes and Dreams" and reach a dramatic focal point, before climbing up to one final drop and then reminiscing with a transcription of Toby Fox's original "Rude Buster" solo."

Somebody must have said something fresh, because this bass is slapping - everyone & everything in sight. The whole groove reminds me of 90s era Sega fusion like the Galaxy Force II OST, and that can only ever be a Good Thing. Judges did pick some varied & valid nits, but were unanimously feeling the overall vibe; Chimpazilla writes:

"Whoa that slap bass is FUNKAY.... love it. I wish the piano weren't panned totally right, but the track is balanced well enough. I feel like the track hits a little strongly in the mid lows, but nothing terrible. The writing and performances are super fun. The arrangement does feel samey after not too long, but there is plenty of varied writing and embellishment to make up for it. Source aplenty. Not a fan of fadeout endings, it feels like a cop-out 99% of the time to me, but I'll live. Overall I'm loving this."

Pretty much all that; there's a bit of repetition, but only AFTER there's been substantial variation & funk/fusion goodness. There's definitely an aesthetic at play, and it's well-executed & works with the source. Definitely looking forward to hearing more from Hanging Waters - fun, funky, creative, & energetic!
