Rexy Posted March 1, 2008 Report Share Posted March 1, 2008 The People's Remix Competition 115 PRCv5-11 Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition! PRC114 had a late start, but its Fire Emblem related contest sparked up a decent turnout regardless with a quant trio of entries being submitted for it. And once again, you guys wanted yours truly to pick a source tune. Don't worry, I've got it covered. We are still with established Nintendo franchises, albeit I've got a killer. Maybe aside from Super Mario World, we are looking into one of the greatest SNES platformers ever made. And you can't even resist it when there's monkeys involved now, can't you? If there's anyone that's been here from back at PRC53, you can understand that Donkey Kong was a big deal to me when I was a kid. I went through the entire Land trilogy on the GameBoy and later started emulating the Country set, and saw a beautifully crafted set of platformers from Rare that seemed to end up ranking as one of the most creative sets of platformers I saw from Nintendo at the time. Heck, it even kicked back in again when I re-downloaded the second title through the Wii Virtual Console around the New Year and when re-looking at it again I was in love once more. Dave Wise's music has generally been inspirational to quite a lot of remixing personnel out here. With a project based on the first game out and plenty of contributions for the second (with most done by Protricity >.>) we can see that his score is not only fun to listen to but pretty awesome to interpret at the same time. There are few DKC2 tracks gone untouched, but I felt the one I picked for this contest is one of the more melodic of those untouched works, and has enough going on to have been warranted a remix sooner rather than later. I hope you all appreciate this well enough; no monkeying around this week!
