  1. Ohhh, I'm always excited for some Radiowar stuff! Did not disappoint as always <3
  2. Oh, I've been enjoying this track a lot since the album was released. The build-up is indeed very long and slow, but at around 1:40 the fun really begins with all the subtle variations and changes, and it's hard not to fall in love with what's going on there. Fantastic the section at 2:32, by the way - it works perfectly as a climax of this piece. This is not one of these crazy over-the-top dance tracks that make your speakers tear apart, but a very pleasant listen nonetheless. I certainly bopped my head a few times here and there
  3. Much love from me for sure - it's not your usual Metroid remix that has that dark and unsettling atmosphere, a sense of something heavy and gloomy, no. Instead, this is a rather uplifting and playful piece There's almost something awfully nostalgic about it, although I have no clue what it could be... But for some reason, this track makes me think of better and simpler times, haha. It was not very easy to extract the source from here, but after a handful of solid listens I can certainly say that it is there. It's a relatively simple tune, but that's where it's charm comes from, I guess. Some sweet piano, beats, organ and a few other details, and there you are - a nice and fresh listen that definitely makes you feel comfy. Can easily say that this is one of the best works on the entire site
  4. Wow, just WOW. I'm writing this during my first listen and I'm just about halfway through, but oh my gosh, I know I'm gonna love every second of this masterpiece. I'm a huge sucker for some smooth jazz jams and this is certainly right up my alley! You nailed it with your initial collaboration, Jorik, but this is just beyond any levels of awesome. Really reminded me of another modern classic of videogame music - "Jump Up, Super Star!", which is saying a lot, I think This one is a little less festive, sure, but the attitude is absolutely the same. Jeez, I think I got chills like 100 times while listening to this track - that was scary good. Mind-blowing work by your crew! Keep it up!
  5. Wow, I'm shocked this track has no reviews yet! Well, I have to say, this is really really good Definitely one of the best folk tracks I've heard in a while. It's a kind of song I could easily associate with a leisure stroll through a town/field/forest, and I guess that makes perfect sense. And, hey, there's accordion - hooo boooy, do I love it! This world really needs more accordion, especially in any piece of VGM, hahah.
  6. This is sooooo cool, wow. It took me a few attempts to get into the track, but, boy, I love it so much now! Absolutely catchy piece of music with that charming oldschool techno sound - eargasmic stuff right here Super mesmerizing space-y synths and some nice robotic vocoding - especially love the melody on the second part!
  7. Wow, this is a super underappreciated track! It's been stuck in my head for the last few days, and I'm really happy about it - super catchy and upbeat retro-flavored goodness! Totally nailed some of the classic WillRock sound here as well, haha. The guitar may be fake, but it certainly adds a lot of charm Absolutely love this remix, keep making awesome stuff!
  8. Another solid track from Jorrith! And also amazing work by both collaborators - the vocal work is simply beautiful, and those guitar solos made the chills run down my spine Certainly super authentic 80s sound overall - nice work!
  9. I don't know why I've been ignoring this one for so long, but man, it's really good. The spoken intro is just so silly, and I love it, haha. Good job here, Stephen! As for the instrumental part - wow, this groove is dangerously catchy! Classic fast-paced bouncy synthwave groove here. The call-and-response section at 1:43 is definitely one of the numerous higlights for me - those chippy bits are so sweet! Then there's a bitchin' solo at 2:31 - another example of why this remix is so amazing. Nice work, Will! And the following half-time part filled with a ton of cheesy sfx and more of that cool voice acting All in all, there's a lot to love - kudos to all of you, gentlmen!
  10. Really fun and groovy track! The drums are especially good. Definitely worth the download and putting on repeat P.S. The album tag is incorrect here. It's "" instead of ""
  11. One of the few purely electronic tracks from the album, and certainly one of my personal favorites! I really love dnb, and this is one of the best representatives of the genre on OCR. The flow is just incredibly smooth and energetic. Absolutely fantastic collab right here! Also nice to see Trism on the front page. He's made some nice competition-related stuff and it's cool to see such progress P.S. I don't know anything about the source track or the game, but for me the title is just a really bad pun and I love it
  12. Oh, hey, I recognize one of the tracks from the recent GRMRB compo Lookin' forward to this one!
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. This is jaw-dropping, holy shit! :0 Gonna keep my eye on this release and also grab Snowtopia as soon as possible!
  16. Ha, nice! Already listening and liking it a lot Gotta admit though, 5 emails is a bit too many
  17. 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!
  18. Man, this one gives me chills even 2 years after the release. Definitely one of the most loud and brutal tracks from STA
  19. 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
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. I can probably get it, should have it somewhere on my laptop, I think...
  23. 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
  24. 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!
