Newcomer to OCR but not, by far, the game music scene, mv offers up a very slick trip-hop arrangement of Cammy's theme from Super Street Fighter 2 that just gets better and better as it goes along. Love the merging of a gurgling synth lead (tasteful modulation on the filter) with a fantastic sax that riffs in and out at different pan points. Synth bassline and drums are quality, and have just enough variety to be interesting yet not obstrusive or detracting from the solo instruments. There's also a lovely piano that stays under the mix for the most part, and multi-octave flute bit with tender vibrato. This piece just oozes a very ubermellow vibe; a bit of melancholy mixed with mystique and attitude. This is actually the second Cammy ReMix we've seen, and serves as a sublime, jazzy, and downtempo counterpart to McVaffe's excellent 'LondonDrizzle' mix from back in 2001. Both are exceptional mixes of a tune I wouldn't have necessarily thought would yield such high-calibre results, which just goes to show ya...something. Anyway, a hearty welcome to mv, whose initial submission makes a very formidable mark and comes highly recommended.

So smoooth, it's smooov, and who puts the M and V in there? MV of course! Looking @ the 1st page, I wonder whether more positive/constructive criticism would've encourage further future submission. I like nearly all of MV's mixes, and Sensual Ippon is in the same vein as thing. Short, but so good.

I don't hear much of the main melody in this, but the bass and harmony is in there. Either way, it's pretty classily done, and it has a cool groove that isn't in a rush to impress. The sax sounds really nice with the synth, and the beats and bass are great.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but this song is smooth, and I think girls might like it too. :

As good a Street Fighter mix as I've heard recently. Seriously good stuff. It's pretty brave with the sound choice, but it hits it out of the park for me. The blend of textures and shades reminded me of a city at nightime; slick lights, bustling streets. All that cool stuff.

This acts builds some maturation on top of McVaffe's Cammy mix, and in doing so creates something that sounds quite delectable and special. The sax sample sounds amazing and the decision to use it sparingly benefited the arrangement in spades. The synth is odd but in a cool way, and I don't really hear too much clashing that has been complained about a lot.

Simply put, this is the level of quality I look for first when I download a mix. I am in love with this.

wow this is AWESOME. I know I'm about 5 years late, but this a damn good remix. The sax and the synth actually work really well together IMHO :razz:. The sax trills are awesome and I love the sax during the breakdown about 3/4 through. This whole piece is smooth and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...like rum.

I don't see actually cammy's theme in this... Sort of. I see some of the harmony used in it, but that's about it.

what are you high?

Anyway, this mix is like a cool, slow breath of fresh air, as contrasted by the original song.

Blew my freakin' mind. I love the sax fading in and out. The synth on the melody was not what I was expecting, but it was still very soothing to listen too. Excellent mix, its way better than anything I could do at this time.

Have you ever had a song that when you listen to it, regardless of what is going on in your life, everything slows down to a crawl as you sit back and just relax...

Have you ever had a song that brings a sense of style and smoothness regardless of what is going on...

Have you ever had a song that could do all of the above, plus make for amazing make out music?

Well, this is one of those songs for me.

The subject heading sez it all, mv. I can't get enough of this remix. As much as I loved London Drizzle, your remix puts me at a very mellow mood and - strangely enough - I get more productive work done when mellow. The only problem I have is that it feels like it ends too early and a bit too suddenly. Otherwise, it excellent!

P.S. The section between 2:56 and 3:38 keeps reminding me of Secret of Mana for some crazy reason...

I was never entirely sure whether the sax was real or not -- played by someone like CharlieBird Parker. I think the pads were a little too loud relative to the sax, but that's it. Otherwise, the compression, bass, drums, lead, pads, all mixed well to feel like an excellent hybrid acid jazz/light jazz piece.

I haven't downloaded any remixes off the site for a while, but I thought I'd drop in to see what was up. BAM, mv + cammy's theme = obvious

success so I couldn't resist. Beautifully done, the sax is ooooozing with

yummy yums!

Someone mentioned the streets of rage style, I was thinking of that also

when I heard the mix, not surprising though. I think mv is a big fan of

those soundtracks. SoR2 was probably my favorite soundtrack of the 16 bit era.

I then checked out a few reviews, and was shocked to see negative

reviews. I think some of these kids need to take a music lesson or

stop their idle babblings. word

There's nothing inherently wrong with this mix. It's very well put together, and achieves the desired effect. I only start really loving it when the piano comes in. 8) The only tiny problem I have is with the drums. I just don't like the way they sound. Personal preference.

:nicework: Nice work mv. A very good listen.

Incredible. The intro sax or whatever with the background beat was truly reminiscent of Cammy and captured the Street Fighter Theme. Plus, the ending at 3'45 that just coasted to the end brought out a great jazz finish. Nice.
