  1. I don't really have anything to say about the piece itself, though it is great! 8-)

    But I'm just confused.. Why does everyone refer to this song as "Theme" when the real title is "Simian Segue"? Along with the jungle song, originally titled "Jungle Groove", yet it's constantly referred to as "DK Island Swing" which is the title of the map theme. It confuses me. Anyone have any answers? Or noticed the same thing? :?

    Well, my guess is because that's what the official DKC soundtrack labeled them as. Proof right here:


    ^ as you can see above, it goes Theme, Simian Segue and then DK Island Swing in that order, implying that's the order they appear in the game. Hope that helps (:

  2. If that happens (which we all severely hope doesn't) we'll probably have to find someone reliable to do an extremely quick remix of whichever tracks are open. At least, that's what I suggested to Emunator. In all honesty though we're just going to hope for the best in the meantime and cross that path if it comes. However, on a positive note, all the artists are well aware of the deadline and promised finished tracks by then :D

    Just an FYI. If Jeff was playing violin for anyone, well, time's up. He's in Alaska now for a couple months. So you may want to look into that.

    Jeff already sent his violin stems to Theophany, so he should probably be in the clear.

  3. Signs are pointing more towards "no" unfortunately. Emunator and I calculated prices while back and it's just too expensive to produce them :( He might be able to say otherwise though (the last time he and I discussed this was probably around February).

    On another note, I'm happy you're looking forward to the album -- there's tons of amazing music to be heard!

  4. According to Rare, Eveline Fischer did Simian Segue, Candy's Love Song, Voices of the Temple, Forest Frenzy, Treetop Rock, Northern Hemispheres and Ice Cave Chant, none of which appear in DKC2 under any circumstances. Robin Beanland's only addition to DKC was Funky's Fugue and we all know that didn't appear in DKC2, heh. So therefore, all the DKC2 tracks based off those from DKC were done solely by David Wise.

    I don't think it matters too much what the main OCR site says; even if it's slightly incorrect, oh well, who cares? :D

  5. I love how I click this topic's bookmark about 30 times a day when I not only know what's going on, but oftentimes remind Emunator that he forgot to update the project thread. Goes to show how excited I am in general that this album's almost coming into complete fruition, hahaha, and I could only imagine how excited everyone else is.

    But trust me when I say that everyone project-related has been doing an absolute hell of a job working on this album in general. As an avid fan of both the SNES/GBA soundtracks I can tell anyone straight up, 100% honest that this album truly is the ultimate tribute to DKC3. An enormous thank you to Emunator, Flexstyle and everyone else for shaping this album into what it's become; it's an absolute honor and a privilege to be on the project and seeing it blossom before my eyes has been a real wildride and an experience I'll never, ever forget.

    I've been wanting to post something like this for months so I figured now would be a good time since the album is so close to completion :D

  6. Oooh, Heart of the Cave... I can't speak for Rozovian (or anyone else for the matter) but the remix is absolutely wonderful. 8 1/2 minutes might seem like a long time for a remix, but please take my word when I say every second of it is fully warranted. It's sure to please fans of the original and first-time listeners alike!

    When I first found this project thread I was honestly a little skeptical at the thought of a DKC3 SNES/GBA soundtrack remix project (mostly because I hold both versions in such high regards and thought it'd be difficult for people to remix certain tunes appropriately). However, with the amount of high quality, true-to-the-source remixes churned over the last year, I've really been proven wrong. And it's my pleasure to admit it :)

    Truly great work to everyone who has helped with the project thus far, it wouldn't be the same without each and every one of you.

  7. It's my pleasure man, Funky's Joint changed my life. It has a power to it that no other song can compare. It speaks volumes to your soul. It helped me get through a near-fatal accident and transcend the physical and mental pain I was in everyday.

    I truly don't think there's a way I can ever repay you for making such a revolutionary track.

  8. Yeah, Monobrow's track is hot stuff :D definitely one of the album highlights (along with just about every other track!)

    Also, mv, Wonderfall is without a doubt of the most impressive songs I've ever heard. It's such a beautiful, creative and majestic take of the song. Even Emunator can vouch that I barely ever shut up about how incredible it is, heh.

  9. I remember ZykO made 3 tracks for Serious Monkey Business: "Token Up", "The Apes of Wrath", and "Backwards Room".

    Now for this, he's made "Corn-Fed Kong" and "Nuts in the Head". I take it that while Nuts was crafted with exceptional skill, Corn-Fed utilized the collaborative power of 3 artists. Nuts and Corn-Fed could make short work of Token Up. They can beat Backwards if they don't suffer any technical problems, but I'll be impressed if they can beat Apes of Wrath.

    He also did "All Mixxed Up", a remix of Hot Pursuit (Jangle Bells) GBA :)

    I looked forward to Zyko's DKC3 tracks with extremely high expectations -- more so than every single other, in fact -- and wasn't disappointed in least with the initial WIPs even. I couldn't even imagine better remixes of any of the 3 themes and I mean that with all my heart.
