This is wonderful.
It’s a lovely, lilting drum & bass track. No great surprises there, lots of drum & bass is lovely & lilting.
But it’s made up, in large part, from little snippets of sound effects and speech from the Pixar film Monsters Inc. It’s by a guy known as Pogo and reminds me slightly of the classic drum & bass track Links by Chameleon (off of the era-defining LTJ Bukem compilation Logical Progression) which made excellent use of a sample from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
According to Pogo’s bio, he’s from Perth in Australia and apparently this is what he does. By this, I mean:
record sounds from my favourite games and movies, and piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle to create completely new music
I actually remember seeing his remix of Up, which is equally wonderful, but hadn’t realised that it was part of an opus of sorts. I’m glad that it is.
