Shameless self promotion time ftw. You sly, sly devil you, Christopher. I couldn't help but purchase the album
Since we're on the topic of self promo-stuff, I've kinda kept it on the down-low, but I've got 2 albums in the works, for some time (maybe too long). One is kind of a weird general-interests Electronic-Hybrid, and the other will be more focused on thematic VGM for game, visual novel and video stuff, so I'm hoping to make 'a limited creative commons license' and all that jazz.
Also, thanks for coming down to MnP to put in the good word and stuff Mazedude - it really helps reinforce my resolve to press on with the competition (same with the rest of you guys :D)
Interesting. Some of the notes in the chiptune parts actual remind me of some of the old Game Boy Shantae notes with how the notes rolled, particularly a minute in. I have to say I really started to like this mix a lot half way through when it got more frantic, combining the electric guitar and chiptune together in a more driven sense. This was a fun song to listen to, and I kinda dig the idea of taking chiptunes and giving them a rock treatment and driving the intensity up a little bit. I actually hope to hear more aggressive chiptune/rock tracks like this in the future for more badass retro sounds. Awesome ReMix, I love it!
This is one of those ReMixes that I consider "HD" versions of themes, where it takes what I loved about a source theme as a kid and amplifies it, helping me remember what I loved about them in the first place. This mix accomplishes that by getting straight to the point with some rock that was very heavy on the guitars, as a good battle theme should be. Yeah, I wasn't crazy over the fade out, and the short length calls for a case of replay button abuse, but those two things aside, I gotta say I enjoyed the soloing right before the end also. This was a very well arranged ReMix managed to fit a hell of a lot into the length it had, which is great. An honor for K. Rool indeed.
Oooh, this is very cool sounding. Strong futuristic atmosphere with such a chill beat, and the vocals are amazing. Everything meshes together perfectly for a distinct cybernetic ReMix. I could easily picture myself listening to something like this while walking through an empty or less populated city at night. Very nice.
