OCR01156 - *YES* Beatmania 2DX & Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 'Kick Your A'


Recommended Posts

Game: Beatmania IIDX and/or DDR (There have been several mixes of this tune used between these two Konami games. It appeared first in IIDX I am told.)

Remix Name: Kick Your A

Original Title: A

Original Artist: DJ Amuro

Mixer: SuperGreenX

As with my other DDR mix, 4F73R M3, this song was created specifically for these games by a Konami in house artist, so it should be kosher for OC.

I made this mix with two audiences in mind. Obviously, there's the game remix community, but I also have a following over at flashflashrevolution.com, so I tried to satisfy both groups. For the remixing doods, I put a lot of effort into changing around lots of harmonies, adding harmony to pretty much every melody that had none in the original, and created a new main melody (played by both the violin and squarewave synth). 4F73R M3 got some flak from people saying it wasn't different enough arrangement-wise, so I'm trying to prevent that this time.

I tried to make all of these changes while still satisfying those less-skeptical FFR users who probably want to hear things they will recognize, so I kept the similar structure (slow section, then super hyper double time section) and kept the piano run similar-ish but with some extra, almost jazzy chords.

Hope you dig.

Btw, if this hasn't been changed yet, could you switch my url to www.supergreenx.com? Thanks!

I'm really liking the production quality on this. My only slight gripe is the piano, which sounded dry at times.

Oh no. Hmmm

3.00: oh yeah loving those chords.

3.25 - 3.32: Oh no, some of that piano pattern sounded off-key to me.

I'm gonna come back to this, man I liked this track until the off-key. No, I have to do this now, I can't allow off-keyness, I must stick to my own rules.


I like this track but sorry.
