For some reason, Dhalsim always had a special appeal for me. The brother had some damn stretchy limbs for one, which I'm sure could be used to great advantage on the dance floor in some fashion or another. For kicks, when really bored, we used to have "slo-motion dhalsim fests" on the SNES version of SSF2, where both sides would play as Dhalsim and we'd used the ASCII pad's slo-mo feature. Don't ask me why, but it was fun. This is a quirky little mix that features sitar, ethnic flute, choral shouts, multiple layered loops, tabla, gamelan, and a prophet 5 lead courtesy of Native Instruments' Pro-52, all rolled into a spicy mix . . . kinda like curry . . . uhh, hence the name :)

Hah, this is great! Solidly put-together soundscape, and I can tell you had fun with the synth jam at 1:28 - 1:56. Pretty good sample quality too, especially for 2001.

Excellent use of ethnic sounds.

0:34 nice beatdrop. You wouldn't always expect these styles to mix very well, but they do so here.

1:28 oh yeah. that synth is jammin, great modulation

I just love the sitar work in this one. I never thought of an electronic mix with Easteren flavor, but now that I've heard this, I think you've cooked up a masterpiece. This truly is a recipe for good times (and bad puns.)

I like the source a lot, and the sounds are cool ('specially the sitar) and make sense given the source. This is one of the ones where it feels like djp is just trying something different, and in this case I think there were parts that didn't work out as well (the shouts aren't necessarily a bad idea but they come off kinda corny here). Still it's worth a listen, and I think what's here is a fun little mix that's executed pretty well.

Whoa, I was caught by surprise by this one. Quite a lot going on as OA mentioned for a mix back then. The ethnic sounds and shouts combine for a nice touch...don't know what to say but nice job for back then!

Another great piece from djpretzel. I've always been a fan of Eastern ethnic stuff, so this is total ear candy to me.

Wow, this is really good for so few reviews. Great work going on, instrument choices are great. Wonderful atmosphere. Good job to DJP.

Haha holy crap this is crazy. This song sounds like how I feel after eating curry. 8O

...This is pretty insane for back in 01. All the synth choices, plus the crazy rythms...golden. The vocals in the background really are a nice addition. All the ethnic instruments really are a nice touch, and they are tastefully and intelligently used in the right places.

I am super digging that flute at the beginning, and the synth line that cuts in about halfway. The percussion is great as well, and the sitar is good. There is definitely a lot going on in this mix, and it lends it self well to repeated listenings. Though I never thought much about the original track, this brings out it's strengths well, and adds a newer flavor (lol food pun) in the form of some sweet synths. A unique, standout track.

This track gives me heartburn every time I listen to it. The kind that you can only get from eating really good ethnic Indian cuisine. Hats off to the chef... now ... where's the ice cream... ah, there it is. **hits play again**

I love ethnic cultural sounds, especially when successfully mixed with instruments that have electronic feel to them.

my thoughts exactly.

Good work, djpretzel. Dhalsim Theme is interesting and funny. This remix is interesting too! ^ ^

Indeed. Quite spicy.

Although, that is some crazy psycadelic curry you got there. :D

this owns, pretzel. probably OC's most rhythmic work, it makes me wanna move in all directions simultaneously. but i guess only Dhalsim himself can do that, eh :D
