Mario + Jazz Jackrabbit + chip leads = win. DaMonz (composer of the Shuttle Rush OST, which you should snag from OverClocked Records!) combined Super Mario 64 w/ Jazz Jackrabbit 2 for this energetic dance/EDM track that has some nice tempo fluctuations and a soaring chip-style lead:
"So I've been hearing some kids complaining about the fact that OCR definitely lacked some "techno shit" tracks. Like, you hear this all the time, "Yeah, OCR has almost everything, but they NEVER post techno shit. I want more OCR techno shit." So I thought, "Hey, why not make some good techno shit for OCR?" Ahem. Yeah. This is way out of my comfort zone, but it's been really really fun to make. Once again, big thanks to the WIP boards. And BIG BIG thanks to WillRock, he helped me tons with making this sound right.
Anyway, I hope you like my "techno shit." :D
I think I've got lots of original stuff in there, but here's a quick source breakdown so you know which part comes from which source:
0:00-0:26 original intro
0:26-1:59 is from "Medieval Jam"
1:59-3:15 is from "Koopa's Road"
3:15-4:28 is from "Medieval Jam"
4:28-end is from "Koopa's Road"
P.S. I got the idea of mixing these two sources together when I was listening to "Medieval Jam," when I noticed the chord progression similarities that Larry noticed in his post. ;) The first idea of the ReMix was to use this to connect the two sources together, by replacing "Medieval Jam's" ending with "Koopa's Road's" beginning. Fun fact. :D"
Judges were unanimous; Chimpazilla sums this one up nicely:
"Whoa, these two sources are made for each other! Remix sounds great right off the bat, nice wide soundscape, good ambiance, lots of detailed synth work with some really great effects added. Drums are varied in the different sections of the mix, with a few fun syncopation surprises thrown in. Production and mixing are really tight.
That tempo slowdown I'm finding VERY cool, you surprised me and I like that, it changes mood while still staying cohesive, and the tempo change is smooth enough not to be jarring, so I'm loving that section. This is an interesting arrangement that kept my interest the entire time. Very groovy. Great job!"
Well said; some judges were a little more reluctant to fully endorse the tempo shift, but it didn't really rub them the wrong way, either. Very creative "arrangement mash-up" of two quite complementary themes into an enjoyable, upbeat package. Plumbers and hares, together at last!
