So I guess I have similar comments as to what I mentioned for the Rolling Thunder mix, but samples could use some upgrading, and here I *think* it's the midrange that's kinda lacking? Arrangement is interesting though. I probably would've found a bunch of enjoyment if I heard it back then.

The high and low frequencies feel pretty empty, which is unfortunate because the synths could definitely benefit from a bit of a boost.

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

Well this is what it says on the tin. Sort of new wave electro disco. The bassline is typical of the style ;) Again lacking in the mid range which causes an empty soundscape. That said, the source is classic (Come on guys we need MOAR space harrier theme remixes :P)

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.

0:15 very faithful representation of disco style, love the slap bass
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

Wow, this is ridiculously catchy! Nice synth work and that soloing was top-notch! It shows its age a bit, and the middle is a bit off-par with the rest of the song, but it's still a great ReMix. Groovy!

Ah, more DjP. That's... a really weird looking game. I can't let the one eye'd elephant distract me, though.

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.

<Insanctuary> I love humility; I eat it for breakfast.
Get involved! The Lufia Album, ORC and PRC are all looking for volunteers!

I wish I felt more of the disco in this song! So the whichachaka thing is classic, and when the bassline shines through it's SO good. And yeah the arrangement is good overall, a good extrapolation of the original and doesn't get old.

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!)
I don't know what I'm talking about but anyway
