Newcomer Marc Star gives us a great, if brief and a bit repetitive Chrono Cross ReMix, with a pleasant beat, swirling guitars, ocarina/flute lead, and just an overall nice sound to it. Hard not to listen to and at least get into a little with the upbeat dance-ish drums and mellow, lush intermingling of guitar and synths. Judges agreed that while brief and not extraordinarily daring, this mix had the right stuff, but there was a small problem - the original file submitted had a good 15-20 seconds of unnecessary trailing silence at the end. It delayed the process somewhat to track down Marc and get a fixed version, but for the just-under two and a half minutes of tunage he's provided, it was certainly worth taking the time. Great opener ReMix from out of left field, and hopefully a harbinger of things to come from Marc Star (just without the silence next time, kay? ^^) - groovy stuff, check it out.
The new rhythms give it a new energy, and the guitars sound pretty nice. The breakdown at 1:32 is my favorite part, but everything in the entire tracks clicks for me. Pretty great for a first submission, and for the most part, it's held up very well over time.

Did you use real guitarwork or a sampler? It sounds like a sampler, and sounds a lot like the one used in FFX (Blitzball, i think...). I would love to get my hands one that one! Where did you get it?

I have to admit that I've never actually heard the original version of CrossFire, but I really do enjoy this remix. That should be testament to the quality of this mix. A lot of songs fly through pure nostalgic value; this one however stands on its own. I hope Marc does some more great ones like this one. Cheers mate!

I rate this mix 10/10
in fact I'm listening to it right now as I post this.
Good job Marc. I expect more remixes like crossfire. You might have a potential as a composer.
