Shinobi 'Shuriken Mix'
I was very happy to see this tune make it to the site so long ago. It was of the arcade music which I greatly preferred. Rayza gives this tune a very trancey late 80's/early 90's feel. I like it. But then of course I like most of the stuff Rayza does. The very first time I heard it I don't think I was tremendously impressed, but I don't know why that would be, it's just how I remember it. But make no mistake, I love this tune!

“psyche, psyche, psyche. signed, Super-Psyche.”
an OC-must, none other can rival the amount of energy featured here. you da man Rayza, just wish you'd make more oldschool dance like this. your (original) progressive techno and melodic trancers are great, but daaamn..don’t ya Feel this bassline?

I can't believe this only got 3 reviews. Shinobi 'Rayza Shuriken' is easily one of my top ten favourite remixes.

This is my official work-out song.

This song should be really bad, but it isn't. I guess that's the difference between genre and musicality! No really, even the musicality should be bad, due to how not that many instruments are prominent, but somehow it's still a full sound, and I like the whole song. Oldschool.

Is that Scorpion's harpoon noise all throughout the song, or am I just hearing things?
Pretty nice early trance style here, I think the bass could be kicked up a bit; give it that Technotronic pumped up jam feel.
I think some of the counterpoint was a little on the loud side and didn't mesh as well as it could have, but overall this is a pretty good mix. :-)

The first melodic synth is pretty grating. Certainly suits the style, and I think even if I were further from my speakers it wouldn't be so bad. Where I am now it just overpowers the rest of the mix. Bringing up the bass/rest of the mix might help that.
Nice trance going on, doesn't get overly repetative. Catchy melody, and good sounds throughout, aside from the melody. Nice work.
The first melodic synth is pretty grating.
Yeah, its a great mix, but that brings it down a notch or two.
The mix keeps things interesting; its consistent but not overly so. Its definitely worth checking out.

Samples notwithstanding, I felt the song was kinda reptitive. :-(

The repetitive part isn't the problem, it was just going on for a bit too long. I still enjoy it though here and then.

Oh yeah, OCR is supposed to be all techno songs, right? Yeah, that's what I thought, mmhmm. For the time it was definitely above standards, but this doesn't hold up well after 10ish years. It's not BAD but definitely cookie-cutter and I got bored very fast. Although, I couldn't help but smile at the usage of Scorpion's spear move SFX each time it played.
Good to zone out to, not my cup of tea otherwise.
