  1. I'll just go ahead and agree with most everyone else that FFmusic Dj has done much better work since this ReMix, but I can say that at least the source was recognizable and that the techno beat at least followed it for the most part. As a fan of even the most basic of electronica and such, I don't hate this one, but yeah, the ReMixer sure has grown leaps and bounds since this. Nice early effort though, and I'm glad this mix at least got a fade ending instead of an abrupt one, so good on ya there.
  2. Okay, yes, this is better to me and a step in the right direction from where the original mix left off. Still has some issues with the distortion being a bit too fuzzy (by a tick, though, it didn't bug me that much, but it is noticeable), and it's still pretty short with a quick ending, but I enjoyed this more than the original mix. With a more evil industrial sound and the cool reverse notes and panning effect that is really awesome with headphones as the sound goes in one bud and out the other, this is much better to me arrangement-wise.
  3. Much like Necrox, I liked the marimba with it echoing along to a deeper, bassier and more sinister sounding version of the Bubble Bobble theme. Much like a lot of older OCR tracks, this suffers from older production issues, but I absolutely love the idea behind it and would be behind bringing this idea to life with today's standards. Polished up and made longer by having some different sections, I think a dark Bubble Bobble mix would kick ass. Not bad for an early CotMM entry.
  4. Ooohhh, eeeh, esh. That piano being super midi and clashing so damn hard with the electric blips on not just sound but tempo, is rough. I'm sorry, but not a fan of this one. Just too much clashing going on for me.
  5. Damn man, so smooth and chill. Everything is awesome in this mix, although my only issue is the ending, where it just kinda stops outta nowhere. Other than that though, McVaffe did some nice work here, especially in the production. Good stuff.
  6. Good god, Virt! That rendition of Chill with that funky bass........that was straight up incredible, and then to bring in Fever with with a ska-fuel beat and a sweet keyboarding sound was awesome. I do agree that the transition was a little bit off in that it really made this almost a tale of two ReMixes, but eh, when both sides of the tale kicks this much ass, I can deal with one little thing for a whole bag of great music. Unreal production for the time, and a lot of good writing. This is why you're the man, Jake. Shine on, dude.
  7. To be honest, I'm not even all that much of a Metroid fan, but I do hear Brinstar vaguely and I see the intentions of this mix. Whether those intentions were fulfilled is up to each individual listener, but for the time that this was made, I think I would have liked this in it's prime. The organ may have been the best part to me in the way it added to the mix. It's like the glue that kept me with this for the whole two and a half minutes. Not my favorite from Franz, but a nice mix all the same.
  8. Wow, you know, I've heard this source before in other media, but I hadn't realized it was from Xenogears until now. Cool effects with the synthlines and the gating. All the distortion and effects on the vocals was an interesting experience to hear, and while there were points where I thought it could have been clearer or didn't sit right with me, overall I enjoyed the experimentation and variation in it. Not bad at all.
  9. I love this ReMix. Everything about Ryu's theme is just as iconic as he is, and managing to work in his 3rd Strike theme while embellishing the best parts of his original theme with some laid-back but energized electronic beats is sweet. Nice use of vox and the voice clip, which were welcomed additions and the strings in the end really brought out the beautiful orchestration that you used to balance the mix. All over, this is awesome and probably one of my favorite ReMixes off the album.
  10. This really is catchy and fun to listen to. Nice blend of electronica and some chiptune inspired elements.I actually enjoy the retro vibe of this mix, but I do have to agree that more of the piano and a bit of a sound update would have made this incredible. Plenty of great ideas and the arrangement is damn good. Liked this one a lot, actually. Nicely done.
  11. Now this is a cool ReMix. Any kind of western theme done right sounds great to me and this mix does well to balance the sense of grand adventure and forlorn wilderness. Would have loved for the jawharp to not be so loud and out in front the whole time, but it still added to the mix rather than take from it, so I won't pick at it any more. Nice work, dude!
  12. For a ReMix, it doesn't sound horrible or anything (aside from the Sax), but I have to agree with the other reviews on this one. It's different, but not so much that it could keep any interest if it had been any longer than it was. The drums were pretty set in their ways and all in all, I just didn't dig this one as much as I could have. Sorry, fella.
  13. Yep, this is crazy and chaotic alright. While I normally don't mix wild mixed up ReMixes, I think the dissonance and difference in speeds of the various samples throws me off too much to enjoy this mix as much as I could. But it's not so overpowering that I couldn't listen to it at any point, and I think the last minute pulled together nicely. Not a favorite of mine, but still fairly decent.
  14. Well, the production is eh, and while I understand what was attempted, I'm not in love with the arrangement either. Still, it's very listenable and for an early debut ReMix where something was attempted to make the mix different, that counts for something. Not at all a horrible mix, but I unfortunately can't say I'm a fan of this one. Jaxx got better as time went on, but it's cool to still hear an earlier mix to really get that.
  15. Love the bells and the beautiful yet mysterious vibe they give behind the energetic tech beat. I very much loved the softer more relaxed section midway into the mix and it's eventual climb back from there. At some points in the background, it reminded me of a Bejeweled track in the way the melody flowed and presented an aura of wonder while the beat kept things excited. A fairly long mix, but one that doesn't disappoint or gets stale, this is terrific.
