Did someone say MAGFEST?? Tis the season, and we'll see you there if you're going!! Newcomer Paul Hadame (real name Aymeric Velozzo, whose other music we recommend you check out on SoundCloud) gives us a sweet DnB take on "Rockface Rumble" from DKC3:
"I'm a French producer/composer of music electronic. I contact you because I would like have my last remix on OC ReMix. It's a remix of Donkey Kong Country 3 (SNES). But all people (1988 minimum) know this track. :) Enjoy. :)"
Judges were a little torn on this one, as some found the amount of repetition to be problematic, but ultimately those in favor narrowly prevailed; Palpable writes:
"A lot of my remixes are deconstructive, and as such, I really dig this style, especially when it's this polished. Aymeric made smart use of the original melodies, and dare I say, came up with something that is a bit more cohesive than the original source song! Really, the only complaint I have is that there is some repetition. It's not entire copy/pasted sections, but many of the elements are reused. A little more creativity and variety would have made this a 10/10 remix in my book; as it stands, it's a pass."
"My initial impression was to vote for resubmit, but having listened for a fourth and fifth time, I honestly can't find enough wrong to lean that way anymore. The arrangement is stellar; the original song is entirely transformed. Listening to the source, I wouldn’t have thought it would translate well into DnB, but this takes the delicious cake. I especially love the way you worked in some of the sounds from the original version, like the guitar-ish lead at 2:11, while still making them fit right in."
For my own money, this does push the boundaries of repetition, and a little bit more could have been done to vary things up & branch out, but the bones of the arrangement are solid, and the meaty soundscape is satisfying. Invigorating, accessible, and creative, this is a fun debut - hope to hear more from Paul Hadame in the future!
