Weekend Remix: Remix Was Super Effective
Song: Shades Of Red
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.
