Kingdom Hearts 'Traverse Town'

I'm not counting this a review, but I wanted to bump this and ask if anything has been worked on for this. I've had it on my ipod for a long time, and it's still one of my favorite WIP remixes. I know back when I first heard it I posted a massive fangasm, but after all this time, I still love it.

Funny, but even after a year of listening to it the way it is, I haven't come up with too many things I'd like to change about it. Obviously a better cut needs to be made, because the sax clicking can get really obvious on good headphones. I still think the piano could use a solo in there as well, even a subtle one. A key change might also add that extra bit of flair, but I think you'd want to be careful about losing the feel of the song, which is a very slummy, smoky kind of jazz/blues.

If you were going to add other instruments to this mix, it might have to be more than one. Cymbals alone would sound forced, because the two of you do a good job filling in the gaps by yourselves. Maybe cymbals, a bass, and something else though, would turn into a full jazz piece. But I can't really say whether that would change the whole nature of the piece though.

I actually think this is fine, if not perfect, as it is with piano + sax, and I think a key change might change the overall mood of the piece, although it's tough to say if a change to a different minor would hurt.

Personally, though I've commented on perhaps changing a bit here and there, I think it's wonderful the way it is, and any changes made should be small ones. If you do change something though, please don't change the ending (2:43 onward). It's perfect.

Oh shit, you did Viridian Vibe? I had no idea, but listening now, I can definitely hear the influence.

You definitely need to release this, if not just for all of us.

Amazing work here! The change to minor chords totally makes the track beautiful. I like it more than the original. I have no complains whatsoever but only wish there were more layers in the track (like strings, violins, flutes, bass etc.). But still, awesome remix as it is! Nice work! :)
