  1. It's pretty funny that in the write-up for MkVaff's remix of the same theme djp mentioned he was planning to arrange "Cosmo Canyon" at some point, and, well... Here we are It's also very interesting that this is the third (!) djp remix of 2019. I mean, are we going back in time or what Anyways, onto the track itself - I gotta be honest, I'm too far from calling myself a huge reggae fan, but this remix is just ridiculously good. Just like Mike's track I mentioned earlier, this is nowhere near what you can expect from an arrangement of this source tune. And yet it works on every level possible! When I was listening "The Cosmofarian" for the first time, I was initially worried that it was too liberal and I didn't recognize the source at all, but luckily the melody kicked in at 0:25 and it was pretty much there the entire time This is also certainly a classic djp track in that sense that it has a lot of connections with his previous tracks (actually, my very first thought that popped into my mind was "FORTUNA FAVOURS THE FUNK!". Yeah, it was more like a scream, hahaha), but it's something new, fresh and different at the same time! Keep on rocking, Mr. Lloyd
  2. Not sure if you've checked the Competitions subforum, but he participated in quite a few of local compos, namely Wily Castle Remix Gauntlet 2013, Mega Man X: The Sigma Fortress Remix Gauntlet 2015, Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2012, Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 and Final Fantasy Crystal Clash! And he made a handful of neat tracks there, so that's my suggestion
  3. This is jaw-dropping, holy shit! :0 Gonna keep my eye on this release and also grab Snowtopia as soon as possible!
  4. Haha, I actually thought about making a tribute to BOTH JSR and JSRF, but I'm not familiar with the latter, so I'm not sure if this works out, but the soundtrack there is no less fantastic for sure! Actually, I'm glad that there's some support, but still no claims. Maybe I'll try to reach out to a few more folks later, we'll see.
  5. Well, thanks for the replies anyway! And also for the good luck, Mr. NutS! Hope this will get rolling Also tagging @evktalo @Jivemaster @Chimpazilla @Flexstyle @Phonetic Hero to get their thoughts as well P.S. Added link to the soundtrack just in case
  6. Alright, should've done this just when started the thread, but I'm just dumb. Gonna bump this one for a bit tag a few people who I'd like to see involved: @OceansAndrew @Rexy @timaeus222 @Sir_NutS @DusK @Garpocalypse @Jorito @jnWake @YoshiBlade @Gario @zykO Let me know guys what you think
  7. Jet Set Radio is a masterpiece of a game, really Everything about it is exceptionally unique - the gameplay, the artstyle, the overall atmosphere, and, of course, the music. But what makes me sad is that there are only a few JSR remixes I could find. This game's soundtrack deserves much more representation in the remixing community. Now, I realize that some of the songs may be a bit difficult to remix given their groove-based and vocal samples driven nature, but I still believe that a remix album is possible, even not a very big one. I'm curious if anyone else is interested, because if I can find some people willing to join this, then I am willing to direct the project OST: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD61626F6813F6C5F
  8. Ha, nice! Already listening and liking it a lot Gotta admit though, 5 emails is a bit too many
  9. Heck yeah! I just love all of Rexy's contributions to TSSMA'12, and this one is no exception for sure! I'm a huge sucker for Gamma's theme, Rexy's music and just large and epic and dramatic piano pieces, so nothing to complain about here The dynamic writing is just incredible, which is really good for such "storytelling" songs like this one. Hope to see the rest of stuff from that album here as well!
  10. Man, this one gives me chills even 2 years after the release. Definitely one of the most loud and brutal tracks from STA
  11. Gotta admit, this is some super nice stuff! The blend of electronica with vibes and some other jazzy stuff quickly reminded me of TGH's "Wily's Bubble Bath" remix. And I love that track soooooo much! Really awesome work here
  12. Wow... Talk about a truly deep musical experience! It's been a long while since a track on OCR touched me so much, and, damn... This day came. The first time I listened to this remix I literally sit shocked with chills running down my spine and didn't even move for a moment. I think this also may have to do something with my personal attachment to Sonic games and their music, but anyway :p The overall atmosphere reminded me actually of 'Dear My Friend' and 'Speak with Your Heart', the ending themes of Sonic Unleashed and Colors respectively (the intro is especially strong with these vibes!), which is a nice thing, I guess I must admit, at some point I completely sunk in the ridiculously mellow blend of the creamy guitars, soft vocals, organ and other stuff topped with some warm recording noises, when the violin suddenly kicked in and... Well, it took me by surprise, honestly. But that surprise wasn't a bad one, that's for sure! I really liked how it added a bit of brightness to the soundscape without ruining the established aesthetics. I think I can go on forever with singing the praises to this work, but you better hear it yourself, guys, it definitely wirth your time! Much kudos to TiwC and his crew!
  13. https://drive.google.com/file/d/10w0IagDgf0OoiTx5JAc5qj9IjDBKQeTU/view?usp=sharing Found it! Had to do some tagging, since a couple of tracks lacked them completely for some reason, so there may be some mistakes, but I don't think it matters that much, honestly.
  14. I can probably get it, should have it somewhere on my laptop, I think...
  15. I just beat this game a few hours ago, and, man, I can say for sure I can certainly imagine this track being in game! Absolutely nailed the overall creppy yet wacky and zany atmosphere of Psychonauts The original is not something that would get stuck in my head immidiately, but Chris made it sound really nice and entertaining... yeah. The source is easily recognizable, but you've also got a plenty of new touches and some classic quirky Mazedude instrumentation! Very good job on this one! EDIT: Almost forgot to mention that I learned about the game itself only thanks to this track! So yeah, huge kudos for making it, haha
  16. Yes! This track is certainly one of my personal highlights of the album It's not really a very new remix, but every listen is still quite nice, and from time to time I even has chills running down my spine I absolutely love the somewhat mysterious yet fresh and adventurous vibe this track has. The powerful drums and groovy bass definitely give this one a huge sense of motion and progression. Then there's also a number of other details that are no less cool - the choir in the intro really helps to set the mood; digging that small folk-ish touch at 1:40 and sweet cello soloing at 3:00! And last but not the least, have to mention the guitar - that's some really enjoyable playing right here. Brave to everyone involved - you nailed it guys!
  17. Yo, this is super dope. Huge fan of your stuff, so hope this one hits OCR front page some day
  18. Ohhh, so dope! I've been playing a LOT of JSR/JGR lately, and this is just what I needed. "Sneakman" is one of my personal favorites form the soundtrack because of how energetic and juicy it is, and Caleb did it a wonderful job arranging this song. He managed to maintain the crazy vibes of the original, while bringing a new dose of freshness and funk to the table. The instrumentation is also very reminiscent of the original - same insane chunks of slap bass, wah-wah, breakneck percussion, and yet there were some new details like the brilliant synth and organ solos! The abused vocal sampling may throw some people off, but I really like it - that is actually one of the features of the original composition that made it so attractive for me! The incorporation of bits of "Fly Like a Butterfly" was also very cool here - they shuffled the things a bit, while keeping everything quite cohesive, which is obviously always nice! Very good job, thanks for making this. Gonna put this one on repeat for sure
  19. I'm always interested in seeing Sonic being remixed during these compos, so definitely looking forward to the entries, especially since the source is kinda tricky, I guess. Although, it was used in a other compo here, so let's see
  20. I don't think I even want to say a lot here. "Epic" is just a huge understatement when it comes to describing this remix. Simply one of those tracks that make the chills run down my spine. Incredible job, everyone!
  21. Oh boy, yes! This is a true masterpiece. I've been listening to this track a lot since the album came out This is certainly one of my personal highlights of RotPL and just one of the best jams of Mr. Pretzel! I love playing this track when I'm in a good mood, and vice versa - pretty much every time I'm frown I put this track on repeat until I feel better, because this track is just... Pure happiness in musical form, I guess. I also love how this track is structured - you've got a nice tropical sonic journey sandwiched between mellower piano-led intro and outro, and that journey itself is quite an experience on it own - there're some straight-up joyful bouncy bits mixed with somewhat calmer parts, which are no less fantastic! The divesre instrumentation is also what makes me appreciate this piece so much - especially dig that sunny flute and groovy bass, haha. Huge kudos for this work, David <3
  22. I don't usually like such tracks as this one as they seem a little bit boring to me, but this one... Woah, it's pure magic! So addicting. There's something almost hypnotizing about it. I can't really tell what it is, but my guess wold be the clock-like percussion And the mellow piano is a very nice thing too. I love how this track keeps adding more and more elements and changing them from time to time. Well... I don't even know how describe my passion abut this track. The last thing I can say for sure is that this is a must-download <3
  23. Actually, I started working only this year and so my first game was... Some games for my Switch, I guess Yeah, this story doesn't go deep in the past
  24. Not familiar with the original as well, but yeah, this is some damn nice job! The groovy, crunchy drums is certainly my favorite thing about this track. I mean, the rest of instrumentation is very cool too (those chippy bits are super stellar), but the percussion just makes me tap my toes and bop my head quite a few times, haha. The drum writing at around 2-minute mark is especially tasty! And, man, that aggressive synth assault at 2:40! Extremely sweet earcandy from Eino, just as expected
