OCR01158 - Slalom "Slalomicide"

Recommended Posts

Kills in arrangement, lacks in melody. Maybe the original song is to blame here, but I don't care for the melody at all. Around 3:00, as dave said, the song starts to get on my nerves. Fade out ending is kinda weak.

Well put together, but I kinda expect more from one of my favorite mixers.

Ha, this is pretty sweet. It is somewhat repetitive, but I think the awesome production makes it very enjoyable. I always love your work, Mazedude. Thank you for blessing the world with this mix.

I hate to say this, but the intro is infinitely more interesting than the melody of the song, the first 30 seconds of the song or so. When I first heard the intro, I was expecting something huge and epic, but unfortunately it didn't end up that way.

Of course when it reverts to the beginning at 52 seconds or so, that's not bad, but the melody is kind of tedious. However I must give you props for remixing immensely obscure games. I still listen to the Boy and His Blob remix all the time.

I agree with Prot, the arrangement is good, but the melody is kind of bland. Still, I always expect high quality stuff from Mazedude, and it IS high quality and it's still very enjoyable.

8/10.

I really really like this. I never really played Slalom that much so I'm not too familiar with da original song, but I really like this remix. It's got that kind of noisy thing going on and the melody in it is really very catchy. It definitely has that feeling of skiing and snow and stuff, and I especially like that creative use of the sleigh bells. Very very very cool (HURRHURR PUN)

My brother used to love Slalom, so I know the game. AS soon as I heard the remix I remembered to music. It's awesome, one of my favourites - and one I can play over and over again and not get bored. I love the chorus, and the whole thing has a "skiing" feel to it.

Very, very nice work.

I've never heard of Slalom before, much less actually played it, but this is a very high energy, well-arranged mix. The repetition was starting to get on my nerves near the middle, but mazedude shook things up enough in the ending for me to end up liking the piece overall.

ok, yeah, this track is really good until the end where suddenly it gets annoying. I think it's that choir patch, honestly.

Before that, it's creative and fun, with a good beat and a fun melody. I think Mazedude was just sick of the track and wanted to finish it, thus the lame ending.

Overall the song is mixed well, but it feels like it just doesn't go anywhere. The wierd thing is that it does move around quite a bit. There are lots of sections, but I feel like I don't get anywhere. Maybe it's the lack of a strong melody, and so the different sections don't feel different thematically?

The ending...not a fan. It feels like a mess. Fade-out doesn't help things either. Overall, not a fan, but I can still appreciate what went into the track.

Whoa, did not expect a Mazedude mix from this game!

I see what the others were talking about with regards to the ending - it sounds tacky in what is otherwise an upbeat happy mix! Otherwise, I found this a fun listen, but it jumped around too much from place to place.

Sorry, but I'm not a big fan of this track.

It's got the usual, slick level of Mazedude, production, but for some reason, I'm really not feeling this track. I see what everyone says about the track ending, the repetition really didn't help either. While this has a lot of flaws, I can still appreciate the work the went into the track.

Not a great track, but not a terrible one either.
