  1. I submitted this a year or two ago, it (eventually) came back with some feedback, some of which was good (helpful mixing tips), some of which was bad (no, I'm not going to re-write the entire song, mate). I submitted a second version based on the mixing advice, but it never showed up. SO I'm guessing whoever thought I should restructure the song based on their whim got pissy. Anyway, for what it's worth, here's the review: https://ocremix.org/community/topic/45559-no-jazz-jackrabbit-jdhd/ And here's the first version, replete with video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2Nd-0rkCdI Anyway, I'm probably not going to do any additional work on this, seeing as how 2 of the judges got up their own ass wanting to remove the only thing that made the song worth making in my view (the bridge and subsequent contrast to the chorus). A friend noted to me (I respect his advice) that the initial transition was too quick, and that's valid. But I didn't want to make something predictable or consistent. That's not what this is about.
  2. I think capacitor aging is less of an issue than people think it is, and certainly not that extreme, in my opinion.
  3. That's not that surprising. A decent PSU will have a lifespan of at least ten years. Not to knock his work, of course, just noting.
  4. I've noticed all the tracks submitted to Ocremix have pretty ridiculously loud mastering. Sometimes it really works for the piece, sometimes it doesn't. Is it possible for me to submit more dynamic work? Talking around -16 RMS-ish.
  5. Still listening to this 1.5 years later - brilliant work.
  6. Beautiful remix - that crash when the chorus kicks in - spectacular - and everything after that, very brutal. Well done good sir, you have my kudos.
  7. Holy smokes this was awesome. Did not suspect from the somber beginning, and only wish it was longer.
  8. If Halc and The Distortionist's respective versions hadn't completely obliterated the landscape for this particular one, I'd give this a 5/5 - as it is, it's still great, but 4/5. Thanks for the cool work.
  9. A great cousin to Aeroz's more chip-tuney, upbeat effervescent version, this remix truly brings out the atmospheric feeling of the original in a deep way. Congrats.
  10. Brilliant - great to hear someone taking a remix in entirely unexpected directions. Stellar work.
  11. Very solid, flowing and thoroughly emotive production - though I never liked or played the donkey kong series, that's what I like about ocremix - bringing my attention to new music that I don't have any nostalgia for. Great work halc. Nice guitar-work too.
  12. Like a lot of ameri-dubstep this is a bit constantly full-on with no dynamic changes, leaving the listener exhausted and not pleasantly surprised. Ergo: more dynamic contrast (in terms of both instrumentation and volume dynamics) would've been useful.
  13. Never been a fan of the zelda series but holy hell this kicks so much ass. BUrning Only criticism is it overstays it's welcome or gets a bit more repetitive. More breakdowns/samples towards end owuld've been interesting.
  14. I was reminded of Ryuichi Sakamoto when playing this. Wonderful work dude.
  15. I used to feel that this was a poor second to Blue Skies, but I see now that it's a different feel overall. And when the breakdown kicks in at 4:17 - I lose it.
  16. Would be better if it were less random- aphex and tobins work have structure. My 2c.
  17. Amazing track almost completely ruined by OTT loudness-oriented mastering, completely destroying the dynamics necessary to really carry this track into the level of energy that it needs.
  18. Love the production though it's a little bass-heavy, quibbling-wise the autotune on the vox is very noticable. More meaningful lyrics in the chorus would be great but on the whole it's nice.
  19. Mastered for loudness, by the sound of things, and poorly done. A good master would've left more dynamics in to emphasize the deft orchestral usage, instead of brick-wall-limiting the fuck out of everything and leaving a sonic mess of distorted highs.
  20. Not normally a fan of asian styles mixed with electronica, but this works well in an eighties-esque kind of vibe. I read a Far Cry Blood Dragon influence coming through, but maybe that's just me.
  21. Personally didn't like much. The vid is great, and is better than the song, which fetishes the game too much in it's lyrics. I think it's somewhat presumptious to call this 'the' remix. It's a remix, and a good one, but not one that matches my tastes. Would be nice to hear an instrumental version.
