I love the Ghouls & Ghosts theme and absolutely had to pay homage to it. Perhaps a little late for Halloween, but who says Thanksgiving can't be demonic, eh? This ReMix commemorates the 1,000,000 hit mark for OC ReMix, which we're just about to reach. It's a techno rendition of the 1st level music, with a little of the title screen jingle thrown in to boot. Regardless of whether you like techno, G&G, or this ReMix in particular, what you might check out is the amount of programming. The bass, both lead synths, drums, pads, organ - all are processed not only via DSP but filtered, modulated, etc. almost constantly. Gives it kinda of an organic feel. Everything was done on a Yamaha Motif (though the one loop was imported - first time I tried that + it worked like a charm). The rhythm almost takes on aspects of surf music during the chorus, if you listen. Well, here's to a million hits and a million more - hope you enjoy.

I've had this mix since way back when. The screaming lead is really cool and there are some great filtering fx on the drums. I wish there was a bit more going on arrangement-wise when the main part of the melody is playing, but I think the b-section with the organ and keyboard is great and the sudden turn towards the somber at the end is probably my favorite part of the mix (I especially love that weird conveyor belt sound in the background).
It's not a mindblowing opus, but it's a fun mix anyway and worth a listen like most of djp's earlier mixes.

The sudden transition to the slow section/ending was a tad strange, though it worked well as an ending. The transition itself was maybe a little too sudden. Aside from that, really good.

Yeah, some flubs, sure, but great energy and a pretty solid display of drumming. Cool stuff, Nihoggr, and a unique tribute to the mix.

The sounds used in this remix are weird, but interesting. The kind-of breakdown starting at 1:21 could have been a little slower, a little more chilled in my opinion, while the second faster part, which leads to almost the end, should have been a little harder and faster. It's basically the same as the first time it's around, and that's a shame, because the sounds have much potential for a completely ridiculous crescendo to a mindblasting climax.
Nice outro, btw.

Very well done, and highly recommended.

Love the percussion during the breakdown. I don't know where djp gets his wild synth lead interpretations, but they work wonders at 1:55, preparing me for another zombie slugfest at 2:24. And the ending... whew. I'm still in the graveyard, but I'm feeling the wind cool my face as distant chimes relax my soul.

i just made a remix (my first videogame remix) of Ghouls'N Ghosts, the same main theme than the one djpretzel remixed.
The only problem is that I discovered djpretzel's ghouls'N ghosts remix after I finished mine ... and i just my eye to cry because that remix really kick ass ! It's so professional that i really hope all remixes are not so great because it's not encouraging for a newbye like me to hear all the work and talent behind that topnotch remix.
if they release one day a ghouls'n ghosts movie , i hope they will first get inspired by your song and better, they use it and put in image that amazing atmosphere you recreated (it reminds me the atmosphere of some of the best zombies movies > dario argento soundtrack : goblins music !! )
I'm now taking that remix as a "reference" to reach for my future mixes.
as you can see with my Ghouls'N ghost remix that you can download
I've lotsa work to progress. Anyway it's my first remix :)
Djpretzel, i need to improve my english to find the right words to describe what you rules ;) but it's a fact.

If you don't have this mix, get it now, and you will NOT regret it. The programming, and amount of sounds tossed in here is just bloody amazing. The drums are tight, and the bass is slick. VERY slick. But the lead is where it shows off the most. It's almost like an old gameboy-styled saw wave, with DSP wrung through it like water on a facecloth. Truly great stuff. It's definately the best I'll probably EVER hear from DJP, and it's the only remix on this site that's better than "ElasticNewYear". And no, I won't stop with the talk about "ElasticNewYear", beacause it rocks almost equally. ^^
GET IT NOW.

There are many things that can be said for DJ Pretzel’s excellent pieces of music, stunning sounds, and brilliant experimentation. But does anybody stop to look at these song names? I know we get a lot of really weird ones around here, but I think that DJ Pretzel’s are by far the most consistently crazy. Sorry, I just had to take a break from discussing music, because DJ Pretzel’s stuff kick’s so much ass that there is no need to say much more then just that. DJ Pretzel’s stuff kicks ass. And you’re very welcome.
