Po is good! This unique, heavily hip-hop style mix from Zelda 3's 'dark castle' is simple, minimalist hip-hop with a solid groove, very little processing, a clean sound, and a tight beat. All-in-all, very addicting and awesome background music for chillin' : If LINK came back to earth and went on a revival tour with the Fugees, things might go a little like THIS ^^ I wholeheartedly recommend you grab it.

This mix is very much laid back, and not only is it slowed down, but there are some cool rhythmic and harmonic changes sprinkled throughout. Though in a few instances it is almost too sparse, it is kept inflated by the rotary epiano, and the super clean beats.
Hearing the melody slowed down to a crawl actually makes it sound cooler i think, as it takes on a more sinister feeling. That feeling is softened a bit by the sample used, but hearing this is very refreshing, and gives me a whole new perspective to look at this melody.

That said, as someone who hates rap and hip-hop, that this is a really good remix, and if more hip hop were like this, I'd probably like the genre.

Like, people need to develop a sense of what sounds GOOD, and what DOESN'T.
There are people that think that ANYTHING can be re-mixed into a hip-hop, dance, jazz, or WHATEVER track. Some, and a LOT of tracks from different games can. But, not ALL, and people need to really sit down and think things through.
This really does NOT sound good in hip-hop. Or if there is "potential," it really sucks, at least for now.

Hip-hop is cool. It's amazing how well this melody fits with the beat. Coulda been a little less chez and more gangstaesque.

Thank you for your time.
No problem, thanks for the heads-up. It's been fixed. Cool stuff, BTW. Though an older piece, it's definitely consistant with some of Posu's other laid-back pieces like Axelay "Citylights." He be chillin' it good.

I'm generally NOT a fan of hip-hop, rap and R&B music, but when people make hip-hop remixes on this site, I'm pretty much always pleased with the result. No exception! Awesome stuff.
I half expect someone or something to start rappin'
A great compliment for a hip-hop beat, and I agree wholeheartedly.
Beat is what the song was missing, you add it to the song.
Yeah! And it goes so well, it seems like the original should have had more of this "Link chillin' wit da brothaz in tha hood" feel.

anyway, this song rocks, and really gives a new face to this theme.
