McVaffe continues to carve out a deep niche in OC ReMix history with a level of quality and creativity so consistent that we have to wonder what caffeinated beverages or other drugs he takes to enable him to do anything other than ReMix, given his prolific output. This is our first ReMix from the 'surprisingly overlooked' as McVaffe points out, Super Mario RPG. At first I thought it was gonna be a more instrumental / orchestral mix, but a drum track does indeed come in, and it's a PERFECT one at that. Main melody played on a really nice oboe sample that is very believable, especially when it stays away from the lower register. I could go on for paragraphs just about the stereo panning on individual drum sounds and the novelty of the mix itself, but I don't have the space. Get everything McVaffe submits until otherwise instructed :)

Beautiful mix here.
0:48 love the contrast between the distorted drums and the clean orchestral instruments.

As for the mix itself, I'm positively in love with it. Tango happens to be my favorite style of ballroom dance, and having more music to practice to (especially electrotango) makes me happier than I can say.

I loved the original theme and McV only makes it better
McVaffe always finds the mellow or classical songs and adds some funky techno beats to them which is what I love :)

Love the drum track too.
I give it a 9/10. :D

Has a few modern elements in it. That gives it a nice touch.
This mix just shows how easy it is to follow the open-mindedness policy DJP set forth.

I'm as much a fan of pure classical mixes as anyone out there, so I was digging this just fine for the first 40 seconds... then the drums came in and I was REALLY digging it. One thing that's common among most McV covers is that he distributes the percussion sounds well between the high, mid, and low ranges. No exception here, as the groovin' hip-hop-eque rhythm and orchestral instruments blend with surprising wholeness.
The only other thing I could conceive of any differently is the ending; it seemed to fade out too suddenly, especially for the laid-back mood it gets you in as you listen.
All the samples were flawless (including the often-poorly-done choral thing... epecially liked the windchime effect, used in perfect moderation) except the cello/bass thing when it's exposed for a few seconds at the beginning. Horridly minor nitpick, though, as the line sounds perfect as soon as it has something over top of it (when the upper strings come in a few seconds later).

EDIT: lol - I said it was awesome at both the beginning and the end!
