This is another one of those ReMixes that I'm not sure if you'll like, but I decided to upload anyway because *I* like it so I figure SOMEONE else will too . . like my ECCO ReMix, it strays pretty far from its source material, which is the cool intro music to SNK's KOF98 . . . if you listen, you'll hear it though. Somewhat experimental, this mix utilizes lots of new sounds I've recently gotten, as well as mastering techniques involving equalizing / compressing that I don't normally employ. If you BLAST this and put on a red hat with a metal plate, you might almost feel like Terry "Lone Wolf" Bogard . . . almost.

The record scratch overload is pretty endearing actually, you really don't hear any songs like this let alone ReMixes. Gotta love a strange and unique approach. I think taking risks should be encouraged whether it works or not (to an extent) but I think this is successful. It also helps that it's pretty compact and doesn't overstay its welcome. I wish there was more of an ending but that might just make this loop better? This feels like it'd be a very good track to loop, as a menu or as a..... backing track for the Flame Grill Chicken Rap? I mean okay

I love classic OCR for this very reason. I actually like this with all the scratches, seeing as scratches has become a fun novelty to play with. Sounds like the soul of the 90's ghetto scene, and I can't help but crack a smirk at this.

Parts of the

track from The World Ends with You sound like this song.

8O what the?

..anyways.

I love how insane this mix is. Layers and layers of scratching and samples. Too bad there wasn't an improv solo section.

Holy lord.

God bless El Pollo Loco for inspiring this awful video for their contest. :-D

What the hell? LOL. I was listening to this song thinking what it would sound like with rapping over it...only to find this :mrgreen:

I think this is one of the overlooked remixes among DJP's catalogue and OCR's early history. It sounds unlike anything else on this site produced during that era, and I think it's secretly one of the best hip hop songs here. Great dynamics in this one.

Since I got this from the torrents for the first 1000 some-odd ReMixes, I am unfamiliar with the source material, but still went "Woah. Another unexpected style for a ReMix. And this one's GOOD. " :dstrbd: I would not expect this sort of thing to come from djp, who I know for his jazz-ish elec-piano skills and percussion. This most definitely gives a ghetto feel. 8-) The percussion is there, but the jazz-ish stuff? :?: Oh, there it is: out the window picking itself up off the ground. Awesome mix. :-P

Another of djpretzel's onslaught of crazy mixes during OCR's infancy, only this one is a big step up, I think.

Simply, it's just a very compelling piece of instrumental hip-hop. There is maybe too much scratching crammed into it, especially since this is a downhill ride all the way, but besides that, this is one of the the earliest power pieces on the site. It's the perfect length, and is busting with suave energy. I'm practically in love with this mix, which is even more surprising when you check out how old and dusty it really is.

I think the scratches get a bit out of hand, and kind of obscure the rest of the track, but when I can hear the actual music itself through the sonic assault that is the record scratching, it's pretty good.

Best mix ever, DJP needs to close down the site because nothing will top this in forever years

This is definitely one of my favorite remixes. I've been a SNK/KOF fan for years and this has to be one of the coolest SNK remixes out there. People seem to have a problem with the scratches, I can't tell the difference, it all sounds good to me. The beat, just the overall feel, man it really sounds great. I couldn't say enough about how good this mix is, thanks DJP for this slick remix.

You know, I've never actually played this game, but this remix is infinitely likable. I heard this on VGDJ, and I knew I just had to get it. Up until VGDJ, I only downloaded mixes from games I knew fairly well.

This mix shows me that maybe I need to get a little more adventurous. :o

Provided there's ever a KOF film adaptation djp feels proud to put his name to (given past instances of game movies, I bet we will be waiting a while...), this is undoubtedly the end credit track. Stylish and a little *too* manufactured, just like the 'street brawls' in KOF, heh. Very slick.
