Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business - History

Recommended Posts

I can answer the first one. Zyko does rap from time to time. Aside from him and José, though, I can't think of any posted remixers that have more than one rap remix.

Also, 1000th post :-P

Clearly, someone doesn't want me to hear anything else before this project release. After finally clicking the link to the Mining Melancholy preview track, I get hit with a server misconfiguration error.

So, I've built quite a reputation for ruining music. Now that HD Remix is a complete disaster, I'm ready to do the same for Dave Wise. I've helped to create a real work of art by programming the bassline, the drums, and the percussion, as well as writing nearly the entire chorus. We meant for it to be an instrumental where people can imagine their own lead vocal performance, but then I had to go and rap.

How dare you!? Rapping, bah! And I thought you would have stopped after that whole "Spittin Narcissism" deal. Some Remixers just don't learn. (For those who can't take a joke, I'm being sarcastic. Loved both songs.)

I look forward to the finishing touches to this in 2010. Should be an awesome year!

Who's kidding? I'm personally tired of all these societal-conformists ruining my free remix album.

Vocal remixes ran over my dog and made my parents get divorced :cry:

Also, I love you all and hope this album finishes up as smoothly as possible :3

Hehe, you might consider being careful with your words Emunator:razz:.

On that note, I've experianced much what other people have in terms of hearing a remixed music that they weren't expecting (Or were towards their tastes). Through this, I've learned to take away my expectancy of music tracks and simply listen to the track for what it is; an expression and work of art.

Of course, this thought process occaisonally fails XD

If you want to rid yourself of that vice, it's a mixed bag. For example, I usually preconceive a remix track as having the same note key, time configuration, and measure span (I know I have the terminology wrong, but I don't know the correct words) as the source material. Unfortunately, I also pay heed to the environment the ReMix is suited for. A case in point is Hedgehog Heaven: Cavern Escape. The first half of the track sounds really deep and dark, like is suited for a vast cavern, but the second half... I didn't think the piano sounded proper for such a track.

Rap songs to me are just like a bunch of dandelions polluting a field of beautiful flowers. There are so many of them, they're all the same, and frankly, they're just plain annoying... But hey, I'm no hater. I think the song was well done. I'm so pumped to hear the rest of the album!!! :-D Yeah!!! Finish!!!!

The other rap haters are just posers!

Okay, I love DKC2 music and was already excited for this project from the game alone, but I just want to say that this is the first time I've looked at the tracklist/mixers attached, and I just wanna say

HOLY SHIT!!!!

We repeatedly poked David Pretzel at MAGFest about his mixes (upon Taucer's instructions, of course), but I gotta give the man some crazy respect: he is a multitasking GOD. Puts me and others to shame, so I'll poke him RESPECTFULLY from now on about it.

Excuse me, kind sir, *polite poke* is your mix done yet? :<

I read somewhere that virt turned in his track for Flight of the Zinger. Was I hallucinating? The only reason I'd want DJ Pretzel to make those two tracks the highest priority of their kind is because if my eyes did NOT deceive me, they'd be the keystone to this album.

I don't have the final wav yet, but he is indeed done. He just needs to link it, as it's already on some webserver somewhere.

Quick question: after djp finishes his two mixes and the website is finished, do we still need to wait for the CD's to be printed before the project can launch, or does that not necessarily have to be finished right away?

CD printing will come after - there's no particular rush for that at the moment, but it will get done at some point in the next month or two likely.

Hey, I was just looking over the tracklist and realized there's one missing. Did no one want to do the song when you have to race the black bird with Squawks? It's the only level on the flying krok (besides K. Rool). Or is it actually on there, just under a name I didn't recognize? I always thought that level had a pretty good vibe.
