Very nice man, congrats on getting posted.

This is an excellent mix, and I think I recall hearing it some time ago on Turntable or something (I could be mistaken)...

Best of luck with future remixes, I look forward to hearing more posted work from ya. :D

Can't go wrong with the DKC soundtrack, can you? This is fantastic, and I do appreciate a nice solo piano piece. Any chance you can do some more DKC in this style? :D

Nice touch on there. Little flaw near the end, but the constance and dynamism here is keeping things fresh through the mix.

Nice piano solo. Felt like you put your emotions in it. Plus dkc is an awesome soundtrack.

Keep it up. :D

I like it, but can't we please add a new rule? "No more Aquatic Ambience please"? I'd like to see other games now.

All I can say is: Moar piano solos! The piano solos on this site are by far the best remixes in my opinion. I want to encourage anyone who thinks of doing a piano solo to GO FOR IT. That goes for acoustic guitar solos too!

I feel there's always room for more mixes. It's only when mixes start to sound samey that the "retreading old ground" really feels unnecessary, and that's on the mixer, not the source.

This was a gentle, relaxing and contemplative piece.

This is a sweet mix. Very delicate vibe to it that I can dig.

You mad bro? There's only... 7 remixes of aquatic ambience? SOOOOO MANY! I SEE WHAT YOU MEAN NOW! We must stop remixing this song! IT HAS HAD TOO MUCH EXPOSURE! Lock up your daughters, cut off your ears,OR AQUATIC AMBIANCE WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLDDDDD

The louder notes seemed to get a little too blaring at times, but other than that this is a really beautiful arrangement and a definite download for me

Love this mix. George Winston vibe from it.

(1) Guy wants more songs from certain games

(x) Guy writes songs for other games to meet this need.

(2) Guy complains when songs from games he isn't interested in are posted.

Beautiful. The piano works well with the feeling of the level. I really enjoyed the dynamic nature of your playing - gave the track a bit of the organicness it needs; sometimes delicate, sometimes strong.

At the top there is that whole "A. E. I. O." thing. I have one for U. How about Utilize? Maybe I am babbling but that was the first thing that came to mind. To me it makes sense. lol.

With that being said, this is SO beautiful! I could relax to this all day long! Aquatic Ambience is probably the most remixed song so I would like to see the other remixed more but the remixes that I have heard have all been awesome. 8-)

GREAT reference! That was the FIRST thing I thought literally like 5 seconds into this song! Props for knowing who George Winston is! :)

It's really hard to get anything more beautiful sounding than a solo-piano piece when done right and done with tracks as tranquil and serene as the waters of DKC. It's not even just a solo-piano mix that follows the source closely, as even though it does follow the source nicely, there are several areas of actual interpretation and originality in here that makes it the ReMixer's own, so that was splendid! Great work and amazing debut. Hope to see more of this ReMixer.
