Ya know, I COULD just started reviewing Scott's ReMixes by saying "It's a PEEPLES, what more do you need to know?" . . . but then Scott might feel I wasn't putting forth the effort and stop contributing, and at that point the world would stop spinning and boiling hell would start rising up from the ground. So here goes: Another excellent retro-ReMix from the P-man, this time from that immortal boxing classic 'Punchout' (renamed after Tyson went nuts). Starting off with a delayed piano version of the main theme, Peeples then artistically adds in his very nice pizzicato strings and a good meat-and-potatoes drum loop that DOES do some breaks / offbeats at passage ends. Great mixing and DSP, as always. There . . . good enough? Hope so. Download it!

I really loved the piano intro slowly building this mix up before it hits with the breakbeats and slight dnb progression beats. Really sets up a good fight theme for Punch-Out that you can visualize. Using the Get Up theme as a break from the main fight theme was great. A little dated, but not a bad take on one of my favorites.

Always a pleasure to listen to. I love this mix.
*fist pumps* YEH

Another mystery, a prolific mixer from the site's early days, now long absent. Good song, shame. Is he actively making mixes anymore?

As far as being divided into sections, I think this mix steps up every time. Most of the action happens in the middle section, which is regrettable for me because I much rather the stuff that happens in the intro and the final switchup. But that's not to say the main section was rubbish, it just wasn't as interesting. Perhaps it could have been trimmed to not flatline within a mix that is otherwise constantly building.
There was nice detail thrown in, and it showcases a good layered approach; not exactly commonplace back when this mix debuted, which deserves recognition. It certainly has a full and polished sound in a more laid back era where that wasn't mandatory.
As a mix, I think it has quite a bit to offer. As a DnB mux however, I think it's had it's day. Fans of this one are surely in it for the cool treatment of the Punch-Out! theme, not the beats.

way too much delay and reverb on the piano for my tastes, but the source tune is solid, and can really take a beating.
The several layers of beats sounds a little overcompressed when the louder group hits, but they are still good enough to be in the ring. It gets a little repetitive when new instruments fail to come in, and the song gets worn down in the later rounds. There's never really a knockout punch either.
A contender, but not the champ.

Engaging intro here. Remember it from way back when, going through the first 700 mixes one by one. Nowadays, the beatwork here comes across as pretty cookie-cutter, but back then the groove was interesting and decidedly different in terms of the treatment of the theme. Good changeups in the instumentation at 2:30; I wish it stayed more like that instead of bringing back the beatwork at 2:42 to keep the feel different.
Arrangement felt a bit repetitive after that, and the weird compression here wasn't doing any favors, but another changeup at 3:18 kept things fresh and inserted some new ideas into the picture before going back to the "Match BGM" arrangement for the last section. Interesting choice of textures, pulled off very well for the time. Cool example of old school stuff.

Scott Peoples has come up with some of the best pieces on OC remix i wonder what else he's got in store?

Quite a good mix, you wouldn't expect such a trance-like song to come from a game like Punch-Out. Regardless, a great remix.

I've liked this mix for a long while, being one of Scott Peeples' top mixes. But what brought it to my attention again was when listening to it on my new headphones. Some sections are absolutely drowned in bass. Listening to it on low volume is necessary now. Just that one gripe, pretty ace elsewhere. Has aged well.

this song is great. This to me was always one of the best on nintendo this remix is awesome though

Okay, let's get one thing straight. This is, arguably, one of the best pure music pieces available at OCR. What with all the sustained strings supporting the piano/keyboard melodies, the rock drumbeat that in no way takes away from the piece but adds just the right flavor, and the fact that it is derived from one of the better NES ditties I can think of, Mr. Peeples proves his worth with this track alone, to say nothing of his other masterpieces.
I can't say as I understand the anti-hype about the drum track. It's repetitive, yes; simple, yes; overbearing, I don't think so; wrong to the mood of the song, definitely not.
Overall, my favorite aspects are the strings (I've always been a sucker for violins), and the reverb on the piano early on.

WOW, AMAZING! I thought that there could be remixes of everything but from this very song, but I am just like , and to do this the Scott Peeples's talent was needed of course, amazing remix I give it a 10!! thumbs up!!!

Wow this ain't too bad. I really like the sound of the begining with the strings and piano. Have to make sure that I get this one .
