Original Composer: Masaya Matsuura, Rodney A. Greenblat, Tuttle & Dynamo Laboratory, Yoshihisa Suzuki
Welcome, one and all, to the Weekend Remix, the one music stop that says, “You gotta believe.”
Believe in what? Well how about the fact that it’s possible to successfully warp a music rhythm rap tune into an electronica remix. That’s what remixer Anti-Syne seemed to accomplish with his take of the classic PaRappa The Rapper Tune Chop Chop Master Onion’s RAP.
Normally, O.G. music fans of the game would be ready to mob with their Internet pitchforks, but they may find themselves bobbing their heads instead.
Besides distorted vocals of Chop Chop Onion’s lines and a heavily altered bass line tethering this remix to the original, there is nothing else familiar about it. That doesn’t mean it’s not as fun or catchy as the original. Anti-Syne’s layers of synth—which either dance, pulsate, or stretch—have that same carefree bounce found in the original song. Yet, it also adds in this sense of urgency that makes it sound less like a level BGM and more of an electronica soundtrack to a training montage.
