OCR00654 - Super Metroid 'Dimstar'
Posted 06 June 2002 - 04:48 AM
High quality Brinstar mix from Beatdrop. Lot's of wacky effects (no, I don't mean DSP by that, though that too is present and well-used), including a Magus-like laugh sound, make this really enjoyable to listen to and bring out the mood of the original probably better than the original did. There is one element, though, that I didn't like: ironically, the beatdrop. That one sample really killed the mix for me, not to mention made my ears almost bleed. It's still an enjoyable mix, but I think it would be a lot more so if a less intense bass drum were used.

Anywho, yeah, they must have totally different settings. The bass drum wasn't very overpowering on my Altec Lansing setup. I have a sub, and two tweeters, and it sounded great. The bass wasn't REALLY overpowering, but it could've been toned down a little bit, not much though, as it would take away from the body of this otherwise great electronica Super Metroid mix. Now, Metroid FUSION anybody? *gets to work*

I noticed something odd about Dimstar by Beatdrop. Although it's categorized and billed as a Super Metroid remix, it is most definitely a Metal Gear remix. Just a thought. (^.^)
Nope, that's definately the Brinstar theme. Plays when you first enter that area. Fire up your copy of Super Metroid and go check.

To tell you the truth, I never thought the brinstar music was anything special, but Beatdrop makes it an exciting song. I love the violins with the heavy beat, it always makes me smile.

So many people gave me such strange looks when I started dancing to the beat afterwards.
This deserves 4 kick asseries out of 5.

You know? That one level of Dr. Wily's castle in number two where you had to go through the rusted water and kill the fish with Quick Boomerang and not to mention the boss... But... hell, I don't know. It just seems so damn familiar to me. Sure, you can easily hear the Metroid in it, but, it really feels like there's something extra.
In any case, as I said before, damn good song. Keep it up!

Melodically it isn't too interesting for me, but that is the source rather than any specific treatment of it. Super Metroid's music never struck me as being especially catchy, but you've made it so with that crazy kick.
