  1. Thanks for the thoughtful review. I've heard a few people make assumptions about what the first sounds on the track are and since no one has guessed correctly, I'll clarify here. Those are acoustic guitar pinch-harmonics. Everything was recorded live, so no patches except for the drums, which were patches that were played live. I think that's an important point because in recording/mixing for this I tried to give the listener a bit of the sense of the actual jam session at Doug's house that eventually spawned this track. Good times, and I'm glad at least parts of it were appreciated.
  2. Yes, clearly if you used a piece of the source for the whole song, you have a song that explicitly references the source throughout. Not sure what you're getting at by stating that.There are 2 main synths in the original on melody and he simply separated them instead of playing them simultaneously. I suppose your argument is that the sections I mentioned reference what you'd call a harmony and not a main lead, but I'd disagree that the secondary synth is somehow less important the the main. The usage is blatantly obvious to me and immediately recognizable. Granted I love the source and have remixed it before, but the statements "hardly any source" or that it's "hardly recognizable" are highly overstated and in the case of the former, demonstrably false.
  3. Just saw this reply in my e-mail, read the text and thought "What noob posted this suggestion to start a counter-thread!?". I shoulda known.
  4. :rollseyes: @ PoDExactly - and really there's tons of source here. Larry, I think you missed that the synth at 0:44-1:08 is a reference to the legato synth that comes in with the main melody at 0:03 in the source. The reference is even more clear when it's made again with the EP between 2:06-2:23.
  5. This is the other "stick to your bones" track on the album for me (other is Bubble Junkie). Like Swifthom said, you just wanna tap along and smile when the bridge comes funkily marching in around 1:30. Groovetastic!
  6. Yeah man, love when the first track (first "full length track") knocks it out of the park! Great work guys
  7. LOVE this track. On an album full of winners, this one sticks with me even more than the rest. The build to the climax at 3:12 and the stuttered modified beat that drives this track home in the final few seconds is worth a few listens all by itself!
  8. Larry, you make one more Toyota Disco and I'm musically bested. But by God I'm gonna outlive you if it's the last thing I do!...and it will be Thanks for the birthday love my OCR peoplez!!! OMG, I'm graduating this year which means I can finally have time to get back to *gasp* music!
  9. Mmmm, old-skool remix style. This is packed full of nostalgia for me both because I played Mario Kart *almost* as much as I played Secret of Mana as a kid (still do on occasion), and because these sort of clean simple remixes are the types of songs that dominated the scene when I first started finding VGmixes through Napster. Nice work Amy, especially on the guitar!
  10. dizzzzam! Even on my little ear buds here at work this track is THICK! Loving it, man. Loving it.
  11. Production value out the wazoo (wherever that is). Love the samples that serve as snares; unique yet they work with the intentionally lo-fi vibe. Lyrically awesome, as expected. Nice work all around, Navi!
  12. Wooowww, this is sexy -- bravo. I need to see an extended edition performed live!
  13. Clean, simple, raw. I likes And totally agreed with your music/education comments DJP. SouthWestern College Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble 4eva!
