Hey, 2010 still has time for ANOTHER DKC2 ReMix, right? This has certainly been the year of Diddy's Kong Quest; in addition to the numerous amazing Serious Monkey Business submissions, we've also gotten some great non-album mixes of the legendary OST. And here's another - AMT, who debuted in February of this year with a great Mega Man Zero 2 ReMix, sends in his follow-up:
"I've always loved the DKC2 soundtrack and being a bass player this song is one that really stood out to me. Bass is my first choice of instrument, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. I hope you enjoy it!"
Of course, Nicole, Starla, and M.J. did a great electronica vocal take on this theme that'll probably always be in the back of my head whenever I hear it, but Austin's rock/funk arrangement works really well, bass is front and center, and while it's initially fairly conservative, it funks out & gets a lot edgier in the second half. Judges cited some mixing issues; nothing bothered me much, although there are some (similarly nitpicky) timing issues on some elements that I noticed. Overall, I think the mix works better when it's rocking out and filling up the soundscape a bit more. Mattias writes:
"Groovy track! Like OA mentioned the mixing is a bit off and there are some minor tuning issues with the guitar. To me that's outshined by the groovy performance and good (but slightly conservative) personalization of the source though. I don't have much to add really. Overall a good track."
Pretty much; it's loose, funky, and instrumental, actually providing a nice contrast to the aforementioned SMB mix posted back in March. Solid stuff from Austin, providing a different take on one of the game's more popular songs!
