I'm guessing nobody checks this thread anymore, but anyway: while in a mall the other day I heard a song being played, and was immediately struck by its similarity to the Roller Disco remix in the DKC2 album. Am I going crazy?
Check out 2:23 of Roller Disco (which sounds like it originates from Donkey Kong Land's boss music but I might be wrong):
Serious Monkey Business: 2-01 Roller Disco (Disco Train)
Then check out 2:07 of this cack:
Calvin Harris feat. Example - We'll Be Coming Back
It's not the just the melody, but also the use of synths. Probably just coincidence but I found it interesting nonetheless. :P

I've known this album for a while, but it sort of got lost in my 'random play all' playlist, so I haven't heard it for some time...
Just to give the thumbs up to this whole album which features some amazing tracks (rare respite, crystal swamp...), and especially one particularly big thumbs up to Backwards Room by zykO, who worked on a 22 second long music featured only once in the game (I think.... I'm pretty sure) and created... one of the insan-iest rock track I know !
To me, this is the definition of what OCR stands for: working out of little, and producing masterpieces. And this is why I asked if somebody would do a remix of the 4-second-long Tune of Currents of Zelda, Oracle of Ages (*wink* *nudge* anybody want to get back to that? *nudge* *wink* :-D)
Anyway, I love you guys <3

According to Rare, Eveline Fischer did Simian Segue, Candy's Love Song, Voices of the Temple, Forest Frenzy, Treetop Rock, Northern Hemispheres and Ice Cave Chant, none of which appear in DKC2 under any circumstances. Robin Beanland's only addition to DKC was Funky's Fugue and we all know that didn't appear in DKC2, heh. So therefore, all the DKC2 tracks based off those from DKC were done solely by David Wise.
I don't think it matters too much what the main OCR site says; even if it's slightly incorrect, oh well, who cares? :D

But if that's the case, why aren't they credited only on the album page and not on OCR's DKC2 page?

The songs you mentioned are (in the same order you mentioned them) Jib Jig, Klomp's Romp, and Snakey Chantey, which WERE covered on the project by Patrick Burns, Joren de Bruin, and Tepid. Don't worry, they weren't left out :-)

There are 3 original tracks in DKC2 that I don't seem to see in this album:
Rigging
Ship Deck
Ship Deck 2
These are the titles from the SPC rips. I know Rigging is on the level where you are climbing up the ship's rafts during the rain.
Why were these not remixed (or maybe they are and I just don't recognize them)? These, IMHO, are some of the best songs in the original DKC2 soundtrack.
Good job on everything else!

So, given that its been a little more than half a year, I should chime in with my thoughts about the album: http://www.bahamutwc.com/blog/?p=46

so i was in the living room doin something when my computer turned on and rhumba rumble started playing (my laptop had run out of juice and i was recharging it).
it was at that very moment that i realized it was the greatest ringtone evur
(my review? the entire album kicks ass, but it definitely had to grow on me, initially i only liked a few tracks. the only song i dont like is the remix of the map screen, mostly because i expected it to be godly because the source is that in itself)

P.S. Dixie, not Trixie

More accurately, DKC 3 was started a few months before this one was released.

This is by far the best OC remix album. It's my personal favorite. You guys need to do Trixie's Double Trouble!

I should've clarified. I only download and keep the songs that pass my judgment (bwa), soooo... what I said only applies to those songs. I've become rather picky!

My song on this album (Simian Soirée) is probably the happiest and most upbeat piece of shit I've ever written, unless you mean it's depressing in terms of quality rather than mood, in which case, eh, I'm inclined to agree (looking back I would change so much about it).
