Pretty cool take of a familiar source. I like the style of this one, chiptune and all that. I've never heard the other sources, so I might be missing the added bonus here. I like the ending, the way the song skips along to the finish line.

The intro was pretty cool but at the same time I was put off by it as I thought the buildup was gonna lead into a breakbeat style track. Not a huge biggie but I don't really think it clicked that well. After that buildup, the track is definitely quirky and I'm lovin it. I love how you added Kirby in there, it was blended so fuckin smoothly in there I almost didn't notice till I was like that sounds very familiar. This is definitely my favorite track from you though chthonic, good stuff sirrrr.

Oh man, this is crazy cool. Great use of the Kirby song, and I actually liked the time signature switch. I'm mildly dissapointed this wasn't some kind of update/rearrangement of AmIEviL's CastleMania mix, but we didn't suffer for the loss here.

I love the presentation of the theme's intro in the beginning (..the intro, lol). It's possibly the most amazing thing i've heard all year. The beat, the synth, the bass... really got me tapping my foot.

This is pretty awesome. I like how you mix chiptune sounds with more "modern" elements, especially that super-lfo'ed, spooky synth lead. Gut werk! :nicework:

Also, I believe it's spelled "Non-sequitur". djp made boo-boo in'is rightup. Har.

Or it was intentional in some strange way

I would just like to note that this remix purposefully includes RAD TIMBALE LICKS for your health

thanks for the reviews everyone :)

THIS REMIX IS AWESOME and now I wish I could play the game. Kirby is probably the last thing I would think to mix into Castlevania. It fits in there too well. (I think chthonic cheated XD)

Even if you don't generally like this style of music, or cthonic's style of music, check this out - post haste! This song is just pure fun.

Also, is that a timbale? Yes it is. I can't believe djp didn't mention the rad timbale licks.

I'm liking this a lot - the DeDeDe theme really works well here, and I'm glad you made the connection. The only issue for me is the transition into 6/8 - it never sat well with me, and I can't really figure out why, I just don't like it very much. Regardless, this is still an excellent mix, and I totally agree about the Virtual Console thing. Keep up the great work!

I was pretty hard on judging this, because I know what cthonic is capable of on a macro scale, but this is still a pretty awesome track. Great arrangement ideas with a lot of little mini-cameos of the themes, and a wide soundscape make this a pretty enjoyable 4 minutes. :-)

thanks andrew :)

but more importantly thanks for the criticism; it's more useful and in a way more motivating than just praise

Now this is a fun mix worth checking out.

*mostly the CV tribute's have been rock or symphony

This is a bit of a rarity, but defintely a fun tune.

*opening reminded me of some horror movie =D

**breakdowns are great too, who knew a cv mix could have a sound like this?

This is a great fun tune, awesome to work to.

And I just want to say the intro is hilarious.

Yeah, the intro owns; the phrase "Murder on the dancefloor" came to my mind when I listened to this remix for the first time.

Very nice arrangement. As anything chiptune(-y) by chthonic, it's just fun to listen to and to pick out all the elements that create the awesome soundscape.

The transition to 6/8 bothers me a little, but that's a rather minor complaint.

This is easily one of my favorite remixes of anything ever.

For some reason it never occurs to me to start mixes off with the beat in full swing, but whenever I listen to someone else's mix that does it I instantly keep it playing. Maybe I should try that myself. Anyway, I love the groove, the melodies, and the overall style of this track. It's sitting right underneath "Too Soon" from Ben Briggs' Attention Deficit EP and I think it's a great follow-on track to that. The transition to 6/8 I really enjoyed, I think it's really smooth and a nice change to finish. I actually changed to 6/8 for the final 2 bars in my Machinarium remix after listening to this quite a few times, so it's definitely been an influence.

My only gripe is that the filter seems to come up a little too quickly after it's swept down, but that's so small I feel a little bad for saying it, but there you go. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT FOR NEXT TIME OK? Cheers :)
