Wild, wild beats. If you think some of the past ReMixes you've heard have featured a lot of beat mangling (Shael's Wily Wars piece comes to mind), you ain't heard nothing yet. A smorgasbord of good d'n'b programming and every effect, transformation, and sample you could think of, this submission by A Scholar & A Physician, their first, certainly explores some interesting territory. I think it was in the intro, when a short sample from "Ring of Fire" popped in, that I knew this was gonna be a little abnormal. Very tight programming - if d'n'b is your genre, this is a textbook example of a classic theme deconstructed. Doesn't forget the musical aspect, either, with nice transitions and a fun little clarinet bit towards the end. Thick attitude and technical loop-bustin' chops are in effect, granting yet another life to the way-more-than-9-lives SMB theme. Very amusing to play this in a playlist with the other SMB mixes, just to hear the variety. Recommended.

Despite being made up of a ****load of samples and the overall insanity level it sounds like a complete, fully-realized composition (and not just a bunch of crap thrown together, in a chaotic way). I love the total unpredictability of the piece, and some of the stuff here even made me laugh because of that randomness.
Nice work...I don't think I've ever heard anything quite like it here.

Crazy cool stuff. :-)

This is an amazing remix of the song. Glitchy as all hell, yet it's so coherent at the same time. It's a shame there aren't more submissions like this one - as this is amazing. If you haven't downloaded it already, do it now. You won't regret it.

My friend and I always blast it with the windows down in the car.

Here's a version of the song done live. It's probably closer to the WTF mix than anything, but I really like it. Especially the part with the voice editing in the middle.

But never until I saw the video did I laugh like a madman as my eyes melted down my face and elephants paraded through my underpants.
The combination of the two is [i]so[/i] trippy that I believe I have gotten high just by watching it.
Excellent work. Reminds me of a piece my brother did for a music class in college, only this is.. Mario.
Anyone still hosting the WTF mix?

Yet this is coming from a person who doesn't remix things, so I probably don't have room to talk much. I will say, despite my negative remarks, that this is as creative as anybody could hope for. Just not my style, unfortunately.
