  1. You definitely made this Mega Man tune sound even more Mega Man-ish than it was by weaving that driving DnB into the melody and beat, making it lively yet purposeful. That's something I've noticed with the Mega Man series, the themes from them seem to either be high energy anthems or just have catchy arrangements, but the really memorable ones, especially later in the games, have both energy and memorable beats, and that's what this reminds me of. Like, everything is balanced incredibly well so that it comes off better by being melded. Very nice!


  2. As someone who is an unapologetic 80's era music lover and someone who also just recently discovered Mitch Murder through the newer Friday the 13th game, I could not approve of this synthwave Shovel Knight ReMix any harder if I wanted to. I especially like how well Tinker Knight's theme lends itself to a more upbeat treatment here. Fantastic beat, voxy vocals, and great teamwork between the synths and percussion, this is awesome, dude!


  3. Love the touch of glitchy dubs all around this funky track. Not sure intense is the right word, but certainly gives this quite the edge and has a more serious sound than other tracks that have higher energy or funk, but keeps all the fun intact. I always love hearing more Zero ReMixes, and this is a really smooth mix that I enjoyed more than the source itself. Well done!


  4. DR. WELI's first mix is still one of my favorites from the site, and this song was pretty damn good in it's own right. The percussion was sweet, and the latter half of the mix building towards the end was terrific. Not really much to nitpick that others haven't already pointed out, but all around, this is a solid mix of a great source tune that doesn't get enough love.


  5. Oh yeah, I do love me some Nostalvania working some Jazz magic all over Shadow Man's stage. Sounds super natural, like you could stick this in a jazz club or old school pool tavern and no one would question it. Loved the piano and time sig switching work here, and the arrangement is well written so that the mix never got stale, staying fresh the whole time. This is excellent, damn good mix, I'd say.


  6. Alright, I can see what the ReMixer was going for here with the tropical salsa arrangement, and to an extent it works, but for me there was a tad bit of an issue where I had to focus on either the piano or the acoustics, or else I would lose the thread altogether. The piano sounded good, though, and I can appreciate the attempt as I think this was a good idea, but there were melody things going on that probably could've used a tightening or two. Not bad by any means, but there is room for things to be reworked to make it really good.


  7. MMmmm, those strings sure are tasty surrounded by those harmony-bringing vocalizations and percussion. Definitely an easy to listen to track that, while not completely slow and chill, has a nice relaxing tone to it all, making it perfect to having playing while concentrating on something else in my opinion. The sources are meshed in well together and all in all, the mix just sounds finely executed. Not bad at all.


  8. Fucking hell this was fantastic! There is so much happening at any given time and so many parts of this ReMix made me smile from outright enjoyment. The drop at 0:19 with that dope sounding choir, the use of the SFX especially with Mario's "yahs" keeping the beat, the multiple glitches and switch-ups, the harpsichord, and especially the dark organ sounding bits that lead to the ending that sent this home with a punch. And the best part is it all worked together and fit in one sweet EDM package. This is a crazy ReMix to debut with, and man, I love it! Recommended and going into my playlist for sure!


  9. While I do love the chug-a-lug of The Distortionist's take on the DKC AA theme, this is awesome in it's own right, taking a more relaxed kind of shredding, which is unique to me because while it certainly rocks hard, it maintains that peaceful soundscape, especially in the middle with the more acoustic section. Same with the outro. Gotta give props to the percussion in the intro for really hitting the mark for accompanying the guitar. The blending of metal and acoustic is still a fresh thing to hear since I don't come across many songs that combine both, so this was very fun to listen to. And that solo is fantastic! I love this and will definitely be rocking this on my playlist.


  10. This is wild and a little trippy, certainly fits the whole atmosphere of falling asleep and dreaming before waking up to voices and outside car honking noises, where the ReMix stops. Out of context, I can see how the ending might snag a few folks, but I think it works as intended. Good beat, a sweet lucid ambiance with just the right amount of reverb, and the piano wasn't loud enough to take me out of the "dreamy" bits, but was loud enough for me to appreciate it. This is pretty damn good.


  11. This is a very pretty sounding piece in the beginning, with a little sorrow and a touch of whimsy, but then it really comes in with a sound of triumph and courage near the end. Hell of a ReMix to traverse so many emotions and images over the course of a song. Solid orchestral piece with an awesome rock section to bring it home. Definitely the most interesting and entertaining rendition of Temple of Time I've heard thus far. Great stuff, man!


  12. Never played Sonic Rush, but this theme was one that I've always enjoyed after I stumbled across it so long ago, so I'm glad to hear a ReMix that pushes it even further into the high-paced energetic EDM that makes it super amped up. This really takes me back a few years. Unbelievably happy that you kept a lot of the voice samples in there, as it is so hard to imagine the melody without them. Really good ReMix, well done!


  13. Man, the chiptune really does remind me of some older NES/Game Boy Color themes just from how the the chips play along with the synth in the rest of the mix. Would certainly fit right in with that era and then some. I particularly liked the section between 2:09-2:23 where you can really hear the percussion beat behind the chips with that hard, deliberate booming hits to the beat. Well done taking these two sources and making something interesting with them.


  14. Sweet mother of god, I really think this might be both my favorite rendition of "The Moon" and ReMix from Willrock I have heard thus far. Pure electric rock screaming of 80's that should give anyone with a pulse a thrill. Just the wailing of the guitars alone made this great, but you really pulled this together for that epic sound of achievement ad victory. So damn good, worth several extremely replayable listens.


  15. Chaotic and cool, this is sick as hell! The intro had a neat little anarchy vibe with the vocal clips mixed together before breaking into the raps. Great lyrics, good beat, awesome flow, and I love how the beat at times sounded like it had a transmitter blip sound effect. Intentional or not, it's a good call back to the intro. So slick and groovy, this is the kind of funky hip-hop that I can bop my head to for a long, long time. Fantastic, truly incredible ReMix from everyone involved.
