I won't be forgetting the name ktriton anytime soon.


Wow dude...thanks!

I did one of those quick, minute-long interviews for VGDJ in which I briefly explain the instrumentation and the reverb, so definitely check it out next Monday if you were curious about 'em.

All I can say is that I dig. I love fretless bass. Maybe a better sax sound might've been nice-- like a live sax? Whatever though the intentions are all there. I totally dig.

Good song. I have no specific complaints about this song, but it just isn't really my style. I loved the subtle string work (or maybe it was sax? I'm not good at picking out instruments) in the background, and it is a fun piece, but for some reason I can't really get into it.

Keep up the good work! 6/10

God damn this is awesome. It kicked ass the first time I listened to it, and only gets better with every listen.

Alright. People need to stop posting 0-size fonts. Why do we even HAVE that option?

:P

Nothing to read here. Move on.


Seriously, stop reading this. Go away.

This piece needed some time to grow on me, but it did. I like this slightly distorted jazz-style very much. My only complaint would be that it is too short.

Hope to hear more from you.

I feel like I gotta leave another review every time I listen to this. This just might be my favorite song on this site right now.

favorite remix ever...for now. every second of this song is total sonic interest. i especially love the weird key change at the end.

the original is campy as all hell, haha, and the melody was brought out really well in this one (the high notes of the phrases are like not recognizable to me in the original...).

Great, great track. Arguably a bit short. The instrumentation is like a beautiful wash of sound. I love that synth sax arpeggio/composite.. it sounds incredibly good. If you think that it doesn't sound "real", stop listening to it like it should be and listen to it for what it is. If there's an instrument that part emulates, it's a sampler. :) I could well imagine a saxophonist constructing that part live by looping him/herself. Don't think just playing that live straight-ahead would sound nearly as good. The sax leads later on sound good enough for me, although *there* there might be some room for a little improvement.


Very soft, busy, underwater feel in this track. Me likey.

I'm a jazz person, so I enjoyed this a great deal. Great Job, I loved the whole thing. This is of course great praise coming from someone who loves Jazz. As already stated, I felt this ReMix to be too short of life. It's Jazz, if anything it should be a ludicrous amount of time.

geez this is a long song title, and it was *even longer*!? OMGZ~~
especially since the song is less than 3 minutes, the track is almost over by the time you are done saying the title. :<
As for the mix itself, it's pretty synthy-sounding, but it is actually pretty rocking, and doesn't really make an attempt to convince us of its realism. I'd say that's the right call, because on it's own, it's pretty charming, with it's start-and-stop sax rhythms and smooth and slinky bassline. It's lite synth-funk for all. Dig it!

Nice title. I'm not really a fan of distorted jazz, but this was nice and for my tastes, was the perfect length. I gotta say that I enjoy the later part of this song when everything seemed to pick up a bit and the sax kicked in. It's a good ReMix, and I enjoyed listening to it for it's creativeness. I have a feeling that the more I listen to it, the more it'll grow on me. Nice work.
