  1. This is a short little remix of the Map Screen from Yoshi's Island. I decided to experiment a bit to create a mix that was mostly inspired by a recent album release from one of my favorite groups, Major Lazer. I have a love for African music and Afro-beat, so I though I'd give it a try myself.
  2. Bump from waaaay back! I ended up revisiting this EP and making some changes to the mixing/mastering of my tracks in an effort to improve my overall sound and quality. I am pretty happy with how everything turned out, so I decided to actually release it on Spotify! Now since I feel more confident and I'm learning more about making my music sound cleaner, I will be releasing more stuff and submitting more mixes that I put on the backburner in hopes of getting my name out there as an artist. Its a big ask, but please follow me on Spotify too and check out my VGM/Remix playlist. SMW2: Yoshi's Island EP - My big ol' VGM/Remix playlist -
  3. I just remembered I had a old WIP for The Spy that I started a while ago. It would be awesome to revisit it and contribute to the project, but I'm worried about the timeline. If I were to claim it, how much time would I have to get it completed?
  4. Bump with a slight update! I wasn't really liking the original drums, so I changed them up a bit. I also took out the bass for right now.
  5. I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this, but for all of the remixers that have their music on Spotify, can you explain how a new artist can get their music added to different playlists? According to Spotify, I have to "pitch" my music to playlist creators, but I get a message saying I can't pitch my music unless I am a distributor. I came across Facebook groups that claim to be able to add music to playlists, but I have a feeling some of them aren't legit, and I can't seem to find one that will add music specifically to VGM related playlist. I know Game Chops has a ton of music from different artist released, but I'm not entirely sure how I can go about being associated with those guys. I'm a total newbie to this stuff, so any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Thanks a lot! That reminds me, I forgot to post a link to the original song. I'll fix that in the OP.
  7. It's been forever since I posted here. I'm happy to be back and doing what I enjoy again. I want share a rough draft of one of my newest projects. It is a chillhop remix of Aria Math from Minecraft. It feels kind empty now, but I have a lot to add. Please check it out and let me know what you think of it so far.

  8. Thank you. I'll keep this in mind. Do you happen to know what TED talk it was?
  9. Wow, it seems like forever since I made a post here. I have been lurking from time to time, but never got around to posting or replying to anything. Lately, I have been involved in real estate investing, lending, and building my business so I can quit my job, and focus on spending the rest of my life doing stuff I actually enjoy. Well, trying to figure out what I actually enjoy. I am going through sort of a "self-rediscovery" period i guess. I have realized that I have spent most of my life working my ass off instead of living a life and seeking true happiness. So much so, that I actually don't even know what makes me happy. I can barely remember a time when I was happy...just content, but not happy. I really don't know... Anyway, I haven't done any new remixes in a while. I do short, simple songs that focus more on improving my production and sound quality, but I have not had much inspiration to create a whole new song. I get all these dope melodies in my head when I'm working or something, but when I sit down in front of my computer with FL Studio open...nothing. So yeah, I have been trying to get my life in some sort of order.
  10. Thanks for the feedback LT! Dang, I was hoping to have shown some improvement with my mechanical sounding instruments. I'm hoping to actually be able to record me playing, instead of just arranging the notes in FL, but I still have a long way to go until I'm comfortable enough. I'll keep working on it though.
  11. Thank you all for your hard work putting all of this together. I forgot about a lot of these old remixes that I did way back in the day. I definitely came a long way musically.
  12. Thanks a lot! I had a blast redoing this mix, but I'm still not satisfied with the guitar section, so I'll keep tweaking that part.
  13. Holy crap, has it really been nearly 4 years???? I finished this a while back, but after check out Joshua Morse's Super Sonic Fusion Collection on bandcamp, I was inspired to revisit it to make further improvements. Of course, its is nowhere near his quality, but I feel like I definitely improved my sound. So, I thought I'd share what I have. New version:
  14. Thanks! I agree. It does seem like something is missing around 03:25. I tried adding the guitar in that section in an earlier draft, but it started sounding cluttered. I will figure out something before submitting it though.
  15. Bump from like, over a year ago... I made a few changes to the track and I might submit this one since I haven't submitted anything in a while. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Glad to see everything is getting finalized. I can't wait!
  17. HYPE!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to try it out. I've been away from my true passion for too long.
  18. I am selling my 8GB Gigabyte R9 390X on Ebay. Bidding starts at $200.00. There is a fan bearing going out on it, so it makes a small grinding sound when its under load, but the fans still turn at full speed and they still keep the card cool. Its a great deal if you don't mind the noise (I prefer a totally quiet rig personally). The fans can be replace easily by looking up the model number printed on the back of them, but it will take a while for them to get shipped to you. The listing is here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gigabyte-R9-390x-Windforce-Video-Card-G1-Gaming-GV-R939XG1-8GB-Radeon/122842425834?hash=item1c99faa9ea:g:PLsAAOSwgspZuX0m#viTabs_0
  19. This remix brought back so many memories! This was the first computer game I got after me and my dad built my first computer. Its good to know this game has not been forgotten. Thanks for this awesome remix. Btw, I just found and bought this game on Steam.
  20. Damn that sucks. It took me a while to finally start getting a little traffic on my page again since I reopened it. I guess I could start posting stuff on my YouTube channel though.
  21. I FREAKING LOVE IT! Excellent work on the site so far and excellent music, man. I like the "compare to the original feature." It saves me the trouble of looking the songs up. I haven't heard some of these mixes in a long time. Definitely brings back memories.
  22. Thanks! I have been having difficulties with that guitar. I will work on it some more and update soon.
  23. I'm very new to video editing myself, so I might not be the best person to ask. I use Vegas Movie Studio 14 and I really enjoy it since it is relatively easy to use. My only problem with it is the fact that it is sorta new, and there isn't alot of helpful tutorials out there for it yet. As far as audio, I actually use FL Studio and some of the tools built into Movie Studio if I plan on using my music in my videos. I'll refer you to one of my previous threads where I asked a similar answer, maybe it will help:
