Weekend Remix: Remix Was Super Effective

Song: Shades Of Red
By: halc
Based On: Theme Of Pallet Town from Pokemon Red Version
Original Composer: Junichi Masuda

This week, Shades Of Red, I choose you for the Weekend Remix!

Sometimes, the purpose of a great remix isn’t to completely transform our favorite tunes in a different light, but to expand it, while somehow keeping its roots intact.

Halc’s Pallet Town remix manages to accomplish that feat easily.

It begins, convincing listeners that you’re in store for a chiptune recreation before expanding into a band backed remix.

It’s as cheerful and bright as the original tune, and manages to pluck at the nostalgic heart immensely. Listening to this on repeat has done nothing but bring up memories of playing Pokemon Red on the Super Gameboy adaptor on the old TV, in between bouts of catching up on the hit anime version.

And hopefully, this tune will manage to do the same for you.

Until next weekend…GO Party.

Weekend Remix: Set Phasers To Groove!

Song: Epic Star Trek Remix
By: Issac Vail
Based On: Theme From Star Trek
Original Composer: Alexander Courage

Remixes! An audio frontier.

Sometimes it can be viewed as a familiar visit in a completely new ride–at least that’s the case for this week’s Weekend Remix.

It would be hard to argue that the theme to the original Star Trek show isn’t one of the most recognizable or iconic TV themes. Well, you could argue that, but unless you want the anger of a million plus phaser-ready Star Trek fans, you would probably fare better by not arguing. Even if you didn’t dig the leadership of Capt. Kirk or the logical musings of Spock, you have to admit that the theme song managed to convey this excellent feeling of losing yourself in the stars, while also hoping for some type of grand adventure.

And luckily, film score composer Issac Vail’s remix doesn’t remove any of that feeling.

His take on the tune is still as open and vast as space itself, with the strengthened inclusion of the famous angelic vocals still setting one up for a new world adventure of a grand scale. And yet, it’s strangely laid back, almost like moving in hyper-speed without feeling it.

Additionally, it’s also the type of house techno song you’d hear in some dusty lounge a few light years away from earth, sipping martinis and stealing glances at some green alien woman. Ah, to boldly go where no song has gone before.

Until next weekend…GO Party!

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

Weekend Remix-Sadness No Jutsu!

Song: Beats And Sorrows
By: Zoned
Based On: Sadness And Sorrow from Naruto
Original Composer: Toshio Masuda

This week we’re getting out the Kunais and Hand Signs in order for the Weekend Remix. I’m not going to hide the fact that I’m a bit of a fan of everyone’s favorite orange ninja. Although, these days when it comes to the series, I keep up with the manga moreso than the anime. But my trip with Naruto started during my time in school, when a friend of mine turned me on to the series. We’d watch five or six episodes in between two-hour bouts of Soul Caliber II. Not a bad freshman year.

Now usually when it comes to the music of Naruto, I personally prefer the catchy J-Rock/J-Pop stylings of the openings and endings. However, the track ‘Sadness and Sorrow’ always stood out to me simply because it’s a beautiful piece that successfully conveys “Naruto is having a serious moment now.” It’s a proper break in the comedy or action.

Zoned’s subtle beat remix manages to add in a calm groove, without sacrificing the song’s somber nature. Its intention of providing an audio shift in mood from fun to sad is never lost. In fact, thanks to its building keys, it’s just as reflective as ever.

It doesn’t completely warp the original song simply because it doesn’t need to do so. But Zoned still manages to add in enough to truly elevate this song into such an enjoyable piece.

Until next weekend…GO Party!
