76 posts in this topic

I've heard this one through Sephire's original work... and until SGX got a hold of it 8)

I can see how it would be a blast to make. Great job, totally kickin'!

I've been looking forward to this since checking out an early version on the WIP forum. Since then, SGX has worked wonders with the production - it's terrifically dirty, without ever getting muddy. And Sephfire has done a great job of transforming a simple little ditty into a dark, brooding arrangement. I'd say this is up there with Glass Cage as one of the best of OCR's more liberal mixes.

Wow. When a mix from mario games is released is always expected something with steel drums, square waves or even a piano solo rearrangement. But this is a rare and uncommon exception like "Bowser is Pissed". It sounds more doom than mario. Plenty of variations. Great instruments, with hot industrial beats and epic effects & synths. This one needs to be listened to at least twice to understand the madness sounding. It was very well compressed and mastered both; most of drums are sounding like its playing in a live electronic machine. The reversed samples are just a sweet detail finishing up the track.

This is a rare one that will be playing in my memorable library. Thanks.

Woof! Two words: KICK ASS. Love the strings at the begining and the fake ending at 3:34. If I could classify the genre, I'd slide it under "industrialectronic". Sugoi. Daisuki. I'm lurvin' it.

I like it, but except at the beginning and end, I barely hear any mario paint in there at all. If I wasn't told ahead of time, I would have assumed it was a completly orginal piece.

I am totally digging this. This is Mario's evil friggin' twin doing what I imagine to be some emo painting right here and I love it.

On first listen when it came out on SGX's site I thought of the song as horrible and destructive. Since then I have recieved new speakers with a hell of a lot more bass which has balanced the song out to make one hell of a remix.

See in your stuff in a record store soon SGX and sephire.

Wow, in the first listen I turned it off after 10 seconds....thinking why is this garbage even on OCR. Then I gave it another listen, and it wasn't anything I expected to be and the begining actually made sense with the end, that it can change so drastically. Impressive way to mess with my head. I love it.

I can't tell wether I like this or not because I have to listen to music various times to get to like them (it's terrible, I know). But I'll make sure I listen to this, the world needs more Mario Paint musical arrangements.

The Mario Paint is in there. We actually added the beginning and end parts specifically to present a reference for the original to look for in the rest of the track. It's in there. Specifically, the string hits are pretty obvious.

Glad most of ya like it. I hope we were able to rox some sox with this track.

I love the string motif that occurs throughout the song. It soon becomes like your pulse; regular (I hope), but dynamic.

I like the bombastic drums at 0:22 as they seem to punctuate the piano solo at 0:58.

The distortion and synth obviously have to be well implemented and of high quality for a mix like this to fly and it is so, it does.

This one's great for Ninja Gaiden Black boss fights. 8)

I was really surprised with this remix... In a good way, that is. :) It's not what I expected for a Mario remix, but I was really impressed.

Kick ass remix. Been a while since I heard one so good. Not too repeatative and the right ammount of excitement. Sounds like it belongs in an action-packed shoot 'em up game.

I just wanted to pop in here and say Congratulations. This thing has been in the WiP forums for longer than I have, and I'm glad it finally made it. Not that I'm a great fan of it, but because I like to see hard work and persistency pay off.
