  1. This is quite nice. It isn't really too fancy or anything, but definitely worth the download Its simple and light nature is what makes it so enjoyable for me. The piano break is like a breath of fresh air here - neat touch. The blend of sources is slightly straightforward yet well-done. My only minor complaint here is a key change at 4:23 - it sounds pretty out of place, but luckily this is the final potion of the track and it is relativly small, so it's ok overall. Great job!
  2. Actually, I've never had any problems with the original version from Smash the Record, but I'm fine with a couple of minor tweaks here and there ;) Well, this is a super fun track that simply oozes with the vibes of adventures and excitement! Both sources are already amazing, but Emery just brings them to whole new level. I was a bit skeptical at first, tbh, but this track grew on me really quickly. The solo at 1:30 is simply marvelous, and the following "Final Destination" cameo works incredibly well too - I love how DaMonz took the source and extracted all the awesomeness in this single small part. And right before diving into the second powerful chippy storm, which is no less great, we get a nice chill percussion-driven transition with some mellow backing stuff - another smart desicion in the whole structure of the track. Really appreciate this work, thats a lot! :)
  3. Oh boy, now this is what I call an intense remix! It drags you into this excellect soundscape right at the beginning and keeps your attention until it's over It may seem a bit conservative at first, indeed, and Sir_NutS' comparison to bLiNd's remix is pretty on point, to be honest. It's your relatively straightforward electronica rendition of FF, but I just can't resist the beauty of such a somewhat simple treatment. And damn, those 80's drum fills - I really love retro-ish stuff a lot, so this can only work as a plus for me. Very good stuff!

    OCR03730 - Mega Man X & X4 "Rolling"

    Man, I've been listening this track a lot since it was released as a part of SFRG. I can actually say that this is the only track from that compo that made it to the top-50 of all tracks on my phone It doesn't mean, though, that the other tracks are all much worse, no, that's just how good this particular stuff is! Anyway, really solid collaboration guys! From kicking drums and delicious synths to some serious guitar chops and smooth vocals, every little thing here shines here. You can't just listen to this once and forget about it. One of my personal highlight here, however, is the part at 2:19 - it's like a small sonic rollercoaster with all those interplays between various instruments. Once again, huge thanks for this work, you're a great trio <3
  5. You should have called this "Sixty fourth techno" Or... wait, is this title a pun already? Yeah, I'm just dumb Great track as always, btw! Love all the quirky chips here.

    OCR01541 - EarthBound 'Brainshock'

    Absolutely incredible track that defies any classification Pretty interesting intro with that ambience that slowly drags you in, which suddenly turns into hip-hop with a touch of Middle-Eastern vibe, and it also turns into something else, and this chain of transformations doesn't even stop until this track ends! The part @1:31 is really different from the rest of the track, but ironically this is what I consider the highlight of this tune. Especially digging how the brass, EP and somewhat industrial-ish percussion work together. Very good job!
  7. Lmaaaaaaaooooo, wtf? Love you Mr Zieja, you're just crazy! Insane! I laugh so hard whenever Ilisten to this. Thanks. Just thanks
  8. Man, this is too good! Incredibly catchy tune with a slightly raw in-your-face sound Well done, can't even praise this ReMix enough!
  9. Man, such an swesome track! Hot, happy and energetic, just like the spring ^0^ Tons of brass, funky guitars, sick percussion, piano, and beats - sounds like a perfect jam for me This is certainly what I'm going to have on repeat for the next few weeks!

    OCR03704 - Lunar Pool "Looser Tool"

    Man, I'm so happy to see Harmsing's work here His song are always so good to listen to - these higly polished toe-tapping jams packed with tons of energy and funk always make me smile. This is a bit different from what I've heard from him though, maybe due to the presence of a chill vibe, but I'm absolutely okay with that. The arrangement here is simply incredible, and all the performances are simply top-notch. Especially love the part at 2:30 - it makes every cell of my body move And the small string section near the end is a cool touch too! Certainly give this song a try, even if you're not familiar with the original tune.
  11. Not sure, why I've never commented here before, been a huge fan of this track since its release on OCR. What a funky and energetic song! Honestly, it reminds me of Sir J's debut track, "Smooth As Honey". In a good way, of course (Is there a bad way, actually? lol) Anyway, this track proves once again how good Jorrith is as a musician - this is something I've never heard from him before in terms of the genre, yet it is absolutely polished track with some solid beats, funky guitarz, hot bass (that soloing at 2:57, omg), catchy vocals (Jesse, you rock!), and whatnot. I can't stop singing the chorus when/after listening to this tune ;P Thanks for an amazing work, guys P.S. Nice OutRun cameo, btw.

    OCR03413 - Kirby's Dream Land 3 "Kirbland"

    I love jazz-fusion, and so I've listened to this track 10 times in a few days. Every little thing is so well-done here, man... I just don't know what to say! It's too good. The section at 1:47 just totally blew my mind Also, gotta love the piano at 3:08 - that's a very nice way to end the song, haha.
  13. I've almost ignored this track completly for a long time for some reason... Probably the first impression wasn't that good, heh. But man, I love it so much now The beats are damn hot, the synth work is pretty intense, and some string action seems quite appropriate as well - certainly feels like a journey through time and space with all these subtle changes throught the whole song - especially love that transition at 4:20, which gives me chills just every time. Definitely worth the download!

    April Fool's Gold

    As a Russian person, I can say that the last sentence looks really funny to me, because it actually asks the administrator himself to send some Sonic 3 stuff and whatnot
  15. This track is now in my top 50 of most-played tracks in my music player (and I have tons of music, actually). I guess that's saying something You've done an amazing job blending these 2 amazing sources and throwing in some groovy chips, beats and bass!
  16. Well, all of Sixto's masterpieces are certainly soooo good, but this track is something else! I can't stop jammin'! Typical ace guitar work comes along with some sweet piano licks, etheral and sunny woodwinds, and nice drums (that breakdown at 2:02 gives me chills every time, damn!). The next thing worth mentioning is the part at 2:32 when all the instrumentation finally blends into a single flow. And the last thing that just strikes me every times is an epic solo at 3:12. Man, each listen is simply like a little journey!

    OCR01217 - Laser Squad "Mission Recalled"

    Yeah, the brass/orchestral elements surely sound quite cheesy and that vocal-ish lead may throw some people off, but I honestly think they work pretty fine with the rest of instrumentation, so I'm definitely getting some cool old-school synthwave vibes from this one Really love the slightly melancholic yet heroic and even sci-fi atmosphere of this track!
  18. Most teacho/trance remixes way from the past tend to show their age quite easily, and they just are kinda "meh" to my taste, but ths one is pretty darn sweet! It's got a very cool bouncy yet floating and dreamy vibe. Highly recommended It's a bummer Rellik doesn't do stuff nowdays, though. Certainly would love to see him back one day!
  19. Holy crap, those drums are absolutely insane! And it's just a pretty cool tune overall! Nice job here
  20. Dang, what a badass track right here! I think I can agree that it certainly needs a sort of relaxing breakdown, but it's still prety well-crafted anyways! Kudos to Mr. OA for this killer stuff!
  21. Been a huge fan of this one for a long time, actually! The first listen didn't grab my attention, though, but then every new listen made me appreciate this gem a bit more I absolutely love the soothing blend of organic and electronic instrumentation, and this unusual approach to the source definitely deserves much more love. My favorite moments are certainly the lead change at 1:42, when the chorus kicks in, and the mellow synth solo at 2:32 - it really makes the jungle-y vibe a bit different, and this touch is welcome too! Oh, and I also forgot to mention the moody intro - those strings are very cool! And I guess the varied percussion deserves to be mentioned as well! Really good and creative work here, highly recommended!
  22. Man, everything about this remix is absolutely perfect. From the light build-up where Noel blended glassy, shiny ivories with mellow, soothing synts to the purely genius usage of in-game sfx (1:48 gives me goosebumps every time, dang!) evry little thing, every detail shines here. I can't help but smile whenever this song plays in my music player. The sources are already gems, but this approach takes them to the whole new level. Mad props for this track!

    OCR03670 - Deus Ex "God from the Machine"

    Mind - blown, jaw - dropped, heart - yours Seriously, though, loved this track so much, especially the anthemic chorus. And the lyrics are quite clever in general. The instrumental is very good as well! OCR needs your stuff, guys!
  24. Holy crap, this is certainly one of the most epic hybrid pieces out there! Certainly dig the piano breakdown at 1:48 as well as the all the following parts, including small synth solo at 2:04, the seamless interplay with electric guitar at 2:10, badass comeback of the fuller soundscape at 2:20 and, of course, the piano ending! Oh, and that flute soloing was a nice touch too! Damn, I really really really love this track, thanks man!
  25. What a wonderful track indeed! Reminds me of Shnabubula's works from "NES Jams" It would be really cool if you submit it, but looks like you don't want to. Welp, gonna enjoy it on your Soundcloud
