This is one seriously definitive Contra ReMix, which goes through tons of different themes from Contra and has some excellent drum programming and synth lead solos, as well as tempo variation. This is a module (IT to be specific) which should be playable in Winamp . . it's amazing what you can do with a tracker these days :) . . . for seven uninterrupted minutes of Contra-remixed bliss, we recommend heartily that you point your mouse cursors to the relatively small (887kb) file below and give 'er a nice, fat CLICK!

Man, Jake Kaufman was so ahead of his time when it comes to the music on this site. I was kind of critical of another medley of his I reviewed, Funk Fusion. But this Contra medley is just all kinds of amazing. It was very interesting to hear the original music in parts blend right in with Kaufman’s music. Perhaps the amount of effort and production placed in this track was foreshadowing his eventual involvement in the Contra 4 soundtrack?

*heart eyes* virt you lovely bastard, killing it even in the year 2000. Lovely integration of chiptunes and not-that, quite a delicious soundscape. And, I mean its hard for medleys to NOT do this but I do like how this takes you on a bit of a journey, through the game and through your life. Doesn't even seem as long as it is, in the best possible way. Super dynamic and interesting. I'm sorry I just have nothing but good things to say about virt in general.

(I had no idea the name was a pun either... wasn't even sure controvert was a word but I guess we all learned something today, months apart)

Embarrassing admission: at the time I read RIGHT over the title pun. I literally thought Jake had just combined the game name and his pseudonym into one nonsense word...

Yeah :banghead:

Sweet, it's almost like the "Unsealed" of Contra. Virt has always been a musical master, and it shows here with his ability to combine all those sources together in a nice package. Sounds good for it's age as well. Nice one.
