Good, straightforward techno-breakbeat ReMix of a tune from the cult classic 'Journey to Silius'. I've never played this game but I'm gonna check it out - it's come in as a request several times and I just looked at the name and kinda laughed because I'd never heard of it and the 'Silius' bit just sounded kinda like 'Silly Us'. Okay, whatever, don't ask. This is Junbao's (aka Mellogear's) first ReMix, which he modestly claims is not that great, but I think shows a lot of promise and some good decisions about sounds, form, tempo, song choice, etc. The delay on the main synth pattern (see intro) is especially key. Nothing that will kick your ass off and make you drool pure admiration or anything, but like I said, a good solid remix of a good, previously unremixed track. With a couple different synth sounds for a little more sonic variety, and a bit harder / complicated drums, Junbao would have been dead on. But if this were my first ReMix I'd be damn happy, eh?

It does get better though. I'm not quite sure what to think overall. It does manage to keep interest, but it could go longer IMO. Perhaps more interpretation with it soaring or going into the lower ends or just something would help add some more meat to the mix.

But the beat is solid, I'll give you that, and it has its own charm, but it doesn't satisfy me melodically. I wonder if, 8 years later, you're still doing this, and if you have newer works - if this was something you weren't so thrilled about THEN, I really want to hear what you've made that you really like NOW.

If nothing else, its original.
I do like the drums; those are interesting.
As the mix progresses, it gets calmer, more into a comfortable groove. This is one of those mixes where one has to listen past the intro/first minute before the mix really shines.

I remember seeing screen shots of this game like 300 years ago in an issue of Nintendo Power and wanting to play it, but Sunsoft always seemed to have distribution issues back then, and to this day i've never played the game. Maybe someday. :-)

As for the remix, give Mellogear some slack; there's virtually no improving this track so taking on the task of arranging it is a bold step in itself.
Props to him for making a techno arrangement, a good one at that - Journey To Silius was asking for one.

A mystery to me since i love the original song and ofc i love the game.
Really nice first remix from Mellogear.
Keep it up.

Mellogear does an awsome job and this is really enjoying...
More remixes from this game, or I don't know what I'm going to do...

Eh, not really a very good remix simply because it has nothing new or special in it. Ok for a few good listens but other wise not too hot. I've seen much worse remixes though so i'd still say its worth a download just to see for yourself. Try it.

Fast and fun techno(?). Really fond of this remix. I believe it was on my first ever burned OC ReMix Cd.
One of my favorites from Mellogear.
