What's this, you say? A DC13 & starla/injury co-op Contra ReMix? Indeed, tis the case. Only have time to post this single mix tonight, but it's a collab between two OCR regulars and it's hard-hittin' Contra electronica to boot, so no bitchin' ^^ Now, the boss music to Contra was classic. Repetitive, and perhaps not immediately obvious as a candidate for the ReMix treatment, but classic nonetheless - a theme that should truly conjure up the good ole nostalgia of those 8-bit days of yore. I proudly admit to being a user & abuser of "the code" - couldn't get through this or Life Force for that matter without it - and a fan of Konami's 2d action games. No one seemed to get fast-paced, frenetic, 2d sidescrolling 8-bit games quite as polished as the big K, and many of their classics were first- or second-generation titles. This is some good, tight beatwork and fat, pulse-width modulated synth put together into a fairly brief but definitely enjoyable techno rendition of the ubiquitous boss tunage. There's not much liberty taken with the melody, but I don't necessarily know that there were too many places it could have been taken, intact. Instead, the appeal's in the direct approach, excellent drums, and minimalist but nice and warm synth. Fun, intense, driving, and timeless stuff from DC13 and injury. They actually put this together a year ago but just submitted it recently. As a straightforward, loyalist techno adaptation of one of the classic boss themes, I'm glad they decided to send it on in. Groovy.
