  1. Yo, this is super dope. Huge fan of your stuff, so hope this one hits OCR front page some day
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Ohhhh... I remember my initial excitement when I first heard a bit of thi track in the trailer Obviously, I was looking forward to the release of the whole version and it did not disappoint at all! Though I've never played CC, Star-Stealing Girl is easily one of my favorites from the OST, because there's just something extremely deep in its beautifully melancholic atmosphere. But the way these guys treated the source is absolutely mind-blowing. Taking such a sad-sounding source and turning it into a jazz jam that's so mellow and creamy was a simply brilliant decision. I love all kinds of jazz, actually, and chill stuff like this is no exception. Especially dig the muted trumpet - now that's a thing I don't hear very often! The rest of performance, however, is no less amazing. Listened to this track about 15 times today, haha. Guess that's saying something
  10. https://ocremix.org/info/Sophomore_Year There's certaily something wrong about the source tracks and composers for a couple of tracks here, namely "Twin Seeds Flyby" and "Not Just Bleeps and Bloops Anymore"
  11. Haha, another track from workshop made it here I fondly remember listening to this one a lot of times back then, and, of course, remember liking it a lot! Very reminiscent of some Shnabubula's stuff from NES Jams, and that's certainly a good thing. Not the most common blend of components here - bits of jazz, chiptune and whatnot, but, hey, it works. Works very well, for sure Very good job, man!
  12. Wow, this is a really neat idea for a remix! I absolutely love the retro-ish/synthwave style you're aiming for, but this track still sounds a bit... quiet, I think? I mean, it definitely reminded me of some of Sir_NutS work, like this track. I guess the beat could be more punchy and... That's it? The rest of instrumentation doesn't bother me that much, but, again, I'm not a musician at all, so I hope you get a bit more useful feedback from someone else Keep it up, man, and maybe you could even submit this one at some point, eh?
  13. Pretty fun and entertaining piece Absolutely love to jam to this one from time to time. Can't help but mention how awesome the part at 1:02 is! And the following bit of quirky chippy solo is no less nice. The Squid vocals sounded a bit wierd to me at first, but I gotta admit I got used to them, and now I can't even imagine this ReMix without them, haha. Super good!
  14. When I was listening to this album for the first time, I wasn't really looking at the tracklist, but when this track started playing, I immidiately recognized it as a djp's work To my mind, there's just a whole lot of similarities to some of his previous works for sure. The strings reminded of his excellent "Red Waltz" and "What the Ocean Taught the Forest", the funkier bits seem to come staight from "Love Hurts" and "Fortuna Favors the Funk", and the rock-ish parts certainly make me think of "Dark Storm". This is some solid atmospheric stuff, and while it's a relatively short piece, it definitely goes places, being a really cool sonic adventure Mad props for this sweet track!
  15. Absolutely kickass old-school techno right here! Really love how varied this piece is - it never has some crazy transitions, it's never all over the place, but it always keeps your attention - there're a couple of trancey bits, some swing-like stuff, and, of course, a totally banging hardcore section right in the middle. The airy leads at 1:15 and 3:34 are just so fantastic - I'm huge fan of such bleds of energetic electronica with some mellower instrumentation. Nothing not to enjoy here
  16. Man, I'm sucker for such somber orchestral orchestral tracks as this one. It's got a bit of melancholy, some epicness, but it also feels very mellow and soothing at times and I can't just deny all the joy it brings to me Seriously, I think this is one of your best works - super touching and emotional - what a wonderful job!
  17. A DDRKirby track with a touch of acoustic elements? Wow, color me interested! That's a really interesting take on what you can probably call the most iconic source from Metroid Prime Really enjoyed this one! This is clearly something I'm going to listen to while doing my homework, haha. Incredibly chill stuff, and yet there's still a bit of aggressive flavor here and there. Once again, very cool and unexpected!
  18. Gosh, I've been listening a lot to this one lately! I really love it It may seem a bit loud, too distorted and just... Weird? It doesn't seem quite cohesive at first, but it quickly grew on me. The atmosphere here is absolutely breathtaking, man. Especially enjoy that part from 4:46 - sooooo good! Absolutely top-notch stuff
  19. I think I've mentioned this a lot of times already, but Jorrith is just a beast! There's absolutely nothing that can go wrong when this guy is doing his business! Once again, he created something that's simply stuck in my head. Such a catchy song! The instrumental is actually quite remeniscent of Jorito's "Kill the Groove", I think. A little less aggressive, but the bounce is all the same! And, damn, I just need to mention the vocals. They're probably even a little bit too god for me, haha Seriously, though, both of you should be proud of your work. Mad props for this track!
  20. Oh... This is sooooo cool I really love how this track sounds pretty much like some of the older djp's stuff, but with a modern touch to it and even almost a bit of glitch-hoppish flavor (those drops at 1:09 and 2:28 are hella fun!). Not even going to mention the TJ&E vibes coming from this remix, haha. For some reason, this track slightly reminds me of Bluelighter's "A Kingdom Under the Sea" and djp's "Twoson Hits the Road" and God knows what else. YES, I realize that this one is completly different in terms of genre, but, man, this feels nothing but cute, cozy, happy and warm. So much to love here!
  21. Oh wow, how could I not leave my reply here?! This track is absolutely hot. It'll be burnt in my memory for a long time. Yeah, that's right I'm afraid I'm tired of saying the same thing again, again and again, but daaaamn, tim never fails to impress me! I freakin' love aggressive electronica (same goes for any kind of glitch-hop as well!), and I love all sorts of interestiong fusions when it comes to the music. A blend of pumpin' EDM with Indian/Eastern vibes/atmosphere/instrumentation? Oh shit, yes! Major kudos for knocking it out of the park once more!
  22. Oh yeah, this track was a huge surprise for me when the album was released! Jovette's works are always so, so, SO GOOD! This is just as over-the-top as all of his recent tracks Huge kudos for this one!
  23. Whoa, this remix is huge! The bass chops are just freaking massive, and when they're coupled with some pretty solid and intense drum work, they create a really nice backbone for the track. The synths may sound weird for some people, but I absolutely enjoyed how bright and vivid they sounded. The darker break at 4:30 is quite an interesting turn here, adds a bit more variety and is just quite pleasant for me And the ending was simply epic. Good job here!
  24. Upbeat chippy stuff? Yes, please! Don't think I really have much to say. Just a very enjoyable track as usual
  25. Absouletely killed it as always! This is one of those tracks that are very special for me: whenever I'm too stressed or worried about something, I just play this tune, and it really cheers me up a lot From catchy groove to beautiful instrumentaion, this track is 100% solid in every aspect you can imagine. That chiptune break alone is incredible! If I didn't know it is your work, Jorrith, my first guess would be Sir_NutS, actually, so that's sayin' something, I think Special kudos goes to Mr. Shreds for his brilliant guitar chops - they certainly made the track much more varied and energetic. And also they perfectly worked in the mellow-ish outro. Nailed it, guys!
