Okay people, lame as it is, I'm putting a huge disclaimer on this one: it was merely a test. Not only a test of my new setup at my new house, but a test of composing a song without a single sound coming from my trusty ASR-10 - everything here is Kawai K5000 or Gigastudio. It ain't great, and I'm not gonna count it as my Castlevania ReMix for the year as I wanna do something with more depth, but as a test run of my setup, and for two hours effort, I deemed it worth posting. Oh well, at least the organ's fun. Humor me and download it ^^

Not my favorite kind of lead as others pointed out. But it doesn't stop me from enjoying the track. As usual, I'm loving DJP's signature rhythm organ.

It's like there's a secret Castlevania level hidden in Streets of Rage 2; or in other words, I like it! ;-)

Very characteristic synth lead. Wish that bass was a little louder because it's rocking out.

A djpretzel mix, through and through.

There is a sense that this was a "quicky", and there is overbearing sense of familiarity in the arrangement. There isn't a whole lot to it, but really, does there need to be? djpretzel does his thing, and then it's over. It's not crazy, it's not sublime. It's just a mix with an intent to please and I can't see a reason why it would fail to do that.

decent remix, nothing amazing. but as you said, it was merely at test.

The lead is pretty hardcore in the higher frequencies; I would agree that pain is involved. The arrangement here is really nice though. AnSo style before it was all the rage. :

Lots of crazy analogue funk, and some great counterpoint. I really think the star of this one is that organ, which does some great syncopated bits.

Cool stuff. :-)

So I just found this in my stash of Castlevania remixes tonight, and it's like being at a roller disco fighting the undead with a whip. It's ridiculous. In a good way. I really like it a lot, as my profile will soon betray.

I dig this tune. I dunno what people are talkin' about with the weird noises and ears hurting... You people need to go listen to more music. For this song, it might be a little weird... The organ is purty slick, though. And the drum programming is timeless. Download it. Do it now!

:nicework: This was the first remix I downloaded form the site, and it's since dropped down the list in terms of favorites, but I still like it.

I love Castlevania 4's music, and this is a great remix :D

on 2004-08-16 20:40:09

The original song from Castlevania 4 is one of my favorite songs in video games. It is nice to see it remixed this way.

on 2004-08-16 15:27:54

I seriously like it, it sounds weird, but still good :D

Groovy it is! This is one of my favorites.

If this was merely a test, it is a successful one!
