Slow Motion (remixed by Hajime Fukuma)
1. Slow Motion
You know I’ve been liking this era so far and Sharaku and Hiromu keeps going different directions with their electro/8bit style they’re utilizing. I really liked the beginning of Slow Motion since it sounded like something you would hear in a game which is great. Now Sharaku isn’t as vocally interesting as he was back on “everything”, but with the amount of auto-tune and vocoder used, it was keeping things interesting. I still was finding myself drowning out of the song.
I did however like the B-side of the single a whole lot more seems it felt more like “everything” did. There’s a lot of 8bit noises mixed in with Sharaku’s guitar-playing. I think there’s just something about this duo that makes me smile when they do do more energetic and fast-paced tunes. This is pretty awesome!
3. Slow Motion (remixed by Hajime Fukuma)
Just like the last single, Slow Motion gets remixed by a different person. To me, Slow Motion sounds way different and the added strings and beeps is keeping afloat, even then Sharaku’s vocals are even further computerized as well. Most of the time I was kind of weirded out because of the vocals and weird stuffs. Strange remix if you ask me.
Ending out the “Deus ex machina” era, Slow Motion is kind of like “everything” but a bit topsy-turvy in which the B-side was fueled by the 8bit and strong arrangement while Slow Motion was just a bit underwhelming as an A-side. The remix though is just not worth, unless you’re that curious about it.
