:puppyeyes:I'd have to say this is by far the most down to earth OC music I have ever listned. It's so good I cannot even dare to even discuss to anyone here what's it like... Unique style beat and rythem change. :puppyeyes:

But here I go!!! Uplifting... Energetic... Flat out smooth... The sound track is so good your ear would have an orgy.

A+ must listen all the way begining to the end!!!!

I really dig this style. Reminiscent of the game, nice, smooth, reminds me tonally of Phantasy Star Online Ragol Weather by Zircon.

I was confused when reading the write-up. It took me a couple of times before I finally read Flight Club rather than it sans "l".

Great mix!

Dang, a remix by Palpable. Amazing. I love it. The sounds you chose are perfect, I think. But Pilotwings? That surprised me - it's soundtrack is good and no remixes up yet until now. Great job Palpable! :)

And what's also amazing is I got the Flickerfall album in today on top of all this. It's just a lot of Palpable goodness! :D Thanks for sending the album so quickly.

Great to finally see a Pilotwings mix appear on the site (basically any Soyo Oka remixing goes down well here in dave-central ;>) I like the direction you went with this - stylistlcally it's verrrrry similar to "THE CUBE" by DJ SUWAMI, an equally awesome tune - in fact the similarities are so rife that I'd be surprised if you hadn't heard this track before.

I guess the only case I'd have against your arrangement is the sparsity of the original material; you've almost made an entirely new track, since you're essentially taking those chord voicings and building around them. I'm guilty of doing exactly the same thing with F-Zero's rankings/select time music too though. gulp

my favourite thing on OCR for probably a few years, nonetheless :)

Great ears - I was indeed inspired by the style of that very track, which has been one of my favorite Bemani tracks for years. Probably should have mentioned that in my submission e-mail if you think it's that similar, but I suspect if someone is mixing D&B and jazz, they'll probably end up using a lot of the same instruments.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

Really diggin' this one. I don't generally download mixes from games I've never played before (I remember being mildly curious about Pilotwings back in the day, but never did try it), but this mix is continued proof of the fact that I should probably just download everything, I clearly don't know what I'm missing.

Normally I like to comment on how a mix compares to the original, this time I'm just going to have to say I really enjoy this track. Very upbeat, a little more jazzy than I might have expected from a "flying theme" but it certainly goes down smoothly. The variations with the piano and synth are really awesome, this won't be leaving my regular playlist for a while.

Time to check out the rest of the Pilotwings soundttrack...

Kind of repetitive, but that is to be expected from the source tune... love the "instrumentation" though. Lots of nice little touches. I'd love to hear this kind of attention to detail in a more complex melody.

I should probably just download everything

Abso-spankin'-lutely.

Wonderful arrangement and perfect choice of instruments. Very reminiscent of racing game-music from the late 90's, particulary Ridge Racer Type 4 and X-treme G 2; I guess it's the piano and choice of synths.

Awesome track, and if you haven't checked out the OSTs from the games I mentioned above, you should do so ASAP.

I absolutely love this mix. Great percussion, nice synth tone, all around class. Arrangement is packed with details, and you'd have a hard time guessing that this was only a 12 second source. ;D

Highly recommended, this is my jam for today!

Wonderful arrangement, the sounds and choice of instruments is great.

This whole song feels flighty - your lead synths bounce around like they're floating along in the breeze :-) It's really quaint. The orchestra hit is kind of cheesy and out of place but all the other instruments really jive together and create a great song to lounge around to on a carefree day.

At first I was really off-put by this song, but looking back I can't remember why, it's actually very enjoyable :-) Also, kudos on finding such a laid-back use for a D&B drumloop, that's good work! :-D

The beginning of this track totally had me thinking Keiichi Ueno of Bemani fame. Great use of instrumentals with a groovy D&B background to fill things out well. 5 star on my playlist!
