  1. I've been listening to this almost every day for two months now, and I am still not tired of it. This is incredible. Love the vocals, especially the chorus.
  2. This song makes my subwoofer happy. And I agree with what has been said about the vocoded vocals; they really fit this style. Great job. Make more of this.
  3. I love how this remix transitions from one theme to another. The Metal Gear Solid games have some of the best music ever, and whipping up a remix like this where some of the most iconic themes blend together in harmony is no small feat. Well done.
  4. Agreed. Very relaxing piece we have here. And I agree with what others said about the organ; it really adds that certain something which makes the mix more than "just" a nice, acoustic song. I actually wish there would have been more organ.
  5. Another nice mix of chiptunes and modern sounds. The arrangement isn't the most daring one, at least not in the first half of the mix, but it is very enjoyable. Good stuff.
  6. Dunno why this would make anyone weep; seems rather lighthearted and fun to me. Very enjoyable.
  7. Oldie but goldie. Very well balanced mix of chiptune and modern elements. For some reason, the part around 1:10 gives me a FF7 vibe, probably due to the synth used. The long silence at the end of the track bothers me a bit, though, especially when this song is part of a playlist.
  8. Reading "jazz/dnb" in the write-up, my first reaction was "wtf", but then I remembered that this is also something that describes one of my favourite tunes on this site: Jungle Jazz. And, surely enough, I fell in love with it within 20 seconds. The part around 2:30 has a very Ridge Racer Type 4 vibe to it, IMO. Well done, jazz or not.
  9. Is it just me or is the volume on this a bit low? Descent has always been a goldmine for remixes, and this is just further proof of that. The synth, the drums, the paino, the guitar; all of it meshes really well and creates a very enjoyable soundscape. The part around 3:00 is simply amazing. Good stuff, man.
  10. Not a big fan of the intro; I wish the song would start "bigger", if that makes any sense (i.e. power from the very first second on). Synth is nice, as is its solo around the 2 minute mark.
  11. Great solo piano piece. Has none of the overboarding, hitting the keys with the entire length of your forearm stuff, so it is right up my alley. Good job, Squint (and Palpable).
  12. In my opinion, this hits exactly the sweet spot between chiptune and modern sound. Very well done.
  13. Not much of a fan of the weird guitar sound in the intro; reminds me of a cassette tape that's damaged. Just like ryankeeton, I really like the wah parts around 2:45, and the "voice sample" following is a nice touch. Climax around 4:50 is intense. Good stuff.
  14. I can only repeat what many posters before me said: very cute and upbeat remix with a piano that's sometimes too high. Personally, I also thought that the ending was a bit too abrupt. Nice one.
