  1. Yeah, the whole notion of "this is very metal" pretty much sums it up for me. It's heavy, powerful, and brutal in a good way. The percussion was honestly the most enjoyable part of this ReMix for me. The various changes in the playing and direction of this mix was refreshing and kept things from getting stale, so major props for that. Impressive take on this tune, I'd say.
  2. Hyped up nightclub with a sick beat that transitions into a more jazzy sound near the end, that is the kind of city I want to go to. That was fantastic, especially with how seamless the transition was. I was expecting the transition from the write-up, and it still happened without being abrupt or messing with the flow of the ReMix, so I'm definitely a fan of how well you handled something that could have easily been trickier for other artists. I do wish the jazzier bit of the mix at the end lasted a little longer, but really, the writing, arrangement and production was great, so no real complaints here. Awesome synth work and tasteful use of the glitches at times. This is definitely going in my playlist for being a good combo of two of my favorite genres. Love this!
  3. So smooth and soothing, this is the kind of jazzy sound that you can let soak it and chill to. Production sounds so clear and the amount of depth I can hear in the bass is pretty cool. I feel like I need to crawl into the corner of a dimly lit smokey parlor with a cup of coffee and just relax while listening to this one. Definitely jazzy as fuck, Joe. Well done.
  4. This is epic soundtrack worthy right here. Mergo's lullaby had a really good melody to tackle for a ReMix, and to give it this dark, grand orchestral treatment is absolutely awesome. I liked the idea of having the mix transform in some way as if it was changing with the battle, good idea there. Very fitting to the world of Bloodborne, I enjoyed this one.
  5. Driven and filled with adrenaline, this is the kind of rush you need for a rocking battle theme, and you guys nailed it. Excellent percussion, great use of the source, I really liked it. Sweet ReMix, fellas.
  6. Whoa, so many sources executed this smoothly is awesome, and the transitions did not bother me, as most of them seemed fitting to me. The upbeat chippyness blended with that percussion gave me such a sweet nostalgic feeling, makes me want to pop Kirby back into my SNES and play it again. So glad someone finally used Heart of Nova, as I always thought it would work well with other sources, so hearing it on it's own before being mixed with the Coliseum Battle source was great. All around fantastic ride,wonderful megamix here, man!
  7. Huh, the koto mixed with the hard bassline industrial beat was weird and interesting to me, and I gotta say, I'm surprised with how much I like it. I love listening to songs and ReMixes and hearing combinations I never would have thought of before. Very cool sound here. The watery effects were great, and really, like I said before, I'm kind of fascinated that this has such a hard beat going for it, but it seems more relaxing than heavy. I'm guessing the synths have that effect on me. In any event, I dig it. Great debut, man.
  8. This has more side-chain than a chain gun, heh. I thought the amount of variation and writing style for this kind of build-up and break down a few times type song was good for a longer EDM track. Some of the reverb in the section around 3:30 was a tad sharp for me and I wasn't over the moon for the ending (very much a personal taste thing on my end, as it worked on it's own and wasn't abrupt), but those are only a few minor nitpicks for a ReMix that I otherwise liked quite a bit. Count me as someone who isn't familiar with the sources, and I can say that this still stands out as a good track in it's own right. One or two nitpicks aside, pretty good debut mix!
  9. Jesus, dude, that speed and intensity right before 2:30, wow! High impact with a load of energy fitting for a Champion battle. Really enjoyed the mixing of retro chip sounds with harder guitar playing. All around, fantastic ReMix, I would say.
  10. Very sinister and an extremely vicious beat, I love it! The Pokemon's cry was a good touch and I really liked how hard the synths go here. Nice work!
  11. This is absolutely gorgeous in just about every way. So peaceful and relaxing, I could really chill out and maybe ease up enough to close my eyes and drift to sleep to this ReMix. At almost eight minutes long with multiple sources blended together well, it definitely portrays a neat narrative and the transitions sounded smooth to me. Loved it from beginning to end, especially that hint of the Ocean theme. This is great!
  12. I actually quite liked the percussion in this, particularly in the beginning and closer to the end when it had a more deliberate rhythm to hit to go along with the guitars. It's remarkable how how much emotion you managed to cram into a song under three minutes, but the electric guitar work really carried it's weight here in that category in the second half. Awesome debut.
  13. Man, Darangen, I'm thrilled to death to hear another ReMix from you again, and I honestly think this is one of my favorite songs I've heard from you. The lyrics and arrangement fit the Town theme so well that it got a big smile out of me. Having grown up in the 90's hearing a lot of songs in this style, it reminded me of just how catchy those energetic choruses can be. Bravo, I really enjoyed this.
  14. When I first started playing video games around seven years old, it seems silly now because it's so easy as an adult, but at that time I had given up playing the Super Nintendo version of Lion King for a long time because of the stupid monkey puzzle at the end of the second level. I just never could figure out where I went wrong and which monkey I was missing to get out of the infinite loop. Also, the boss right before Kefka from Final Fantasy 6, Poltergeist. I fought that thing, and I got wrecked.After getting so far into Kefka's tower and putting up with all the other battles, losing that one was rough. I probably could have gotten my levels up and set-up the teams properly, beaten that boss and then beat Kefka to finish the game if I really wanted to (probably still could if I get on another Final Fantasy kick), but I had lost so much patience with FF6 by the time I got to the last dungeon, and the last dungeon did not help because I really despised the three team thing.
  15. My god, I love how sinister sounding this is! It's like taking the original source and filtering Valentina's true evil intentions through it resulting in something that sounds dark and still regal and royal with the harpsichord. Really like the trap beat going on here, and I definitely like this ReMix enough to say that it's in my top five from the whole album. Infinite bonus points for not having a sample of that annoying laugh of hers in here as well. Good to hear DJP bust out another amazing ReMix again.
  16. Yeah, equal parts groovy and unique, that's for sure. Mazedude always seems to make great ReMixes that have an interesting sound or tick to them, and this is no different. Fun to listen to, good mix here.
  17. That heavy bassline kicking off the mix was sweet, but man when the DnB hits, this ReMix seems to go from a nice cruise to a blazing sixty miles per hour and on. And using that to transition to the Culex/FF4 boss theme was brilliant. I wish that the Culex section was a little longer because I was really feeling the way you arranged it and it would have been fun to hear it go for another minute, but I can't really complain, seeing as this is one of my favorite tracks off the album. Good work on this one!
  18. Dude, man, I'm blown away by how well your voice goes to this! It's freaking magical how the vocals here guides instrumentation and flows with the orchestra, which sounded beautiful in it's own right. Gorgeous all around, and the goal of giving it that Final Fantasy ending vibe was achieved here. Very cool ReMix, man.
  19. Very strong metal ReMix you have here. Clean production, sick arrangement and enough heaviness to make any rock fan smile. I think the energy and delivery really makes this one for me. Not bad at all, man.
  20. Dude, hell of a debut mix right here. Probably one of the most aggressive and determined versions of this tune I've ever heard, and hearing the SFX spliced into the song reminded me of when Willrock used some of the game's SFX for the intro of his Clockwork Criminal ReMix a while back. I really liked how you integrated the SFX into the mix so that it sounded like a play through of the stage, especially when the music muted when it sounded like it was going through the water at around 2:30. That was cool.The harder rocking section at the end was awesome, my favorite section easily. Hope we hear more from you!
  21. Highly soundtrack-ish to me, which is great. Giving a ReMix this much time to breathe, build, evolve and develop always seems to work extremely well for these kinds of orchestral pieces, and being a fan of well-done waltzes, I applaud this one. It really does sound like a well told story through music. Very cool.
  22. Totally picturing an adventurous, yet wondrous temple scene from the soundscape and ambience of this ReMix. Interestingly calming for me to listen to this one, even when it gets more upbeat. Nice work, man!
  23. At two and a half minutes long, this might seem like a bite-sized ReMix, but this tiny package has got a giant funky jazzy treat that should have you destroying the replay button or setting it on loop. So much personalization, and I love the sexy organ and piano work, especially at the end. Fantastic work as always, Nostalvania!
  24. Just as beautiful as I would have hoped a mix of Aquatic Ambience and Forest Interlude would be. The bells and chimes where super pretty and had the perfect realistic depth to them. The section starting at about 2:44 was neat, I liked the tone shift with it being a bit darker while maintaining that wondrous underwater vibe. This is awesome, Emunator!
  25. Pretty cool ReMix. I quite liked the blending of styles with some rock and ska going along with the more orchestral elements. Some parts, particularly the energy combined with the heavier brass sounded like something you'd hear if you wanted to give something a Spanish flair, and it sounded great. Top notch production, good writing, all around nice work, man.
