DJP is insane. This is the tune that got me interested in videogame music back in the day when I first got my Sega Master System. And now it's DISCO?????? Actually it's not that bad. If you are familiar with Space Harrier then this is probably an automatic download. Sounds like it is full of MP3 artifacts in the high frequencies, but I'm not sure if that's something DJP did when he made the song (high ends sounds wishy-washy and slurry). It varies up a bit in the middle, and that's pretty cool.

it's hilarious, very cool and true to the original tune. Space Harrier music really helped in making you feel like yer flying around with a jetpack at mach5! DJp, i don't know how you always vary your mixes so much, but keep up the great work! Such variety in your tunes. The P.Star2 mix was cool too, one of the few tunes that i can't get bored of.
BTW, have you tried the 32X version of Space Harrier, i have it, and it's probably exact to the arcade, and the music is awesome and crystal clear! give it a looksie.

The track starts with some cool chords, opening into the main melody at 00:10. At 00:28, another instrument is mixed in, and funks it up. At 00:40 the track really begins to soar,, the effect increased by the truly wobbly instrument introduced eight seconds later.
At 1:08, the main melody changes, with more of an emphasis on the aforementioned wobbly instrument (Don't ask me what it is, I'm terrable at picking instruments.) at 1:48, we get a focus on the cool Bass work, opening into a funky piece of techno at 2:00, and getitng cool fifteen seconds later, mixing it up with some fast work.
The main melody begins again at 2:42, following with what could be considered the kind of chorus. At 3:25, the sound fades to end.
Overall, its a decent and funky track. I havn't heard the original, but suspect fans of the original would probably like it. However, with the great range of mixes at OC, this kind of ends up being slighly forgettable.

It's great when djp layers the synths in this song and there are some great solos. One cool parts at 1:23 and then there's that crazy solo somewhere near the middle. My favourite part is near the end at 3:10 where that new synth is added
Overall this isn't a bad song. I'm still looking for that extremely kick ass Space Harrier mix

Actually for being of such a vintage, this remix has some sweet stuff going for it. The solos are very very good, and the space harrier theme itself is great. I wouldn't really classify this as anything even close to disco, but the synth sounds do have a nice 70's retro feel to them.
Pretty nice stuff.

Don't know the source, so this is just coming at me disco-style. Whether or not that's a good thing, I'm not sure
Catchy tune, something to tap your foot too. Nothing really sticks out as being awesome, but for the age of this, I would have digged it when it originally came out.

this IS some old djp tunage. I recognize the hell out of this but I have never played space harrier.
seriously hearing sonic from 0:40-1:07 for some reason? I don't know
oh yeah that solo at 2:15 is rocking my world
Posted 11 December 2008 - 05:25 PM
I especially like the intro.
It's fun, interesting, and one of those songs you'd think you'd get stuck in your head but don't.
A very nice track.

The soloing at the end was badass! For such an early remix, this is pretty good, actually!

This is probably my fav mix of the first wave of djp mixes before other people came along to share the spotlight.
As a solo fiend myself, I approve of the synth solo. Great stuff, a keeper for me.

0:40 one of the catchiest game sources
1:40 nice improv going on here
2:30 great solo
3:10 counter-melody is quite effective
3:22 too bad it's only a fadeout ending

I'm liking the instruments and style of this one. It really catches the happy mood perfectly. The phasing, the funk bass, the disco vibe, it all works well for the track.
The soundscape is a bit lacking, overall. I'm wishing that there was more bass and lower mids - right now it sounds like there's no bottom of the track.
Those squares used for the harmonies... they're awesome. I don't know why they warrant a special mention, but they are indeed awesome. I'm just sayin'.
The playful mood is infectious. A song that makes me happy listening to it is indeed a song worth listening to. This gets seven one eye'd elephants out of ten.

Get involved! The Lufia Album, ORC and PRC are all looking for volunteers!

But then you have the main source melody on some odd little sine synths that could probably be beefier, and the drums, I dunno maybe it's a filter of some kind, they seem to be in the wrong place. Yeah, like someone said I think primarily the samples just need updating.
(.... also the song needed an ending!)
