this remix has a really nice mood to it. reminds me of telepopmusik .. probably because of the sine-y melodic components. the guy's voice is kinda geeky, but a passable performance. the vocoding is a little rough at times, it needs some (more) compression/eq attention. not too distracting though.

sadly i don't know the original game at all or have any of the music. hopefully someone can chime in on the interpetation.

in the meantime i give this a tentative,

Yeah the vocals could have done with some more compression, but very nicely done overall. Enjoyed it more as the song progressed. I really got into Shenmue and I think that this does convey the feelings of Ryo well. Good stuff.

i like this. it might be a little thin on the whole but it is ultimately very pleasing. i recognize the shenmue theme, and it is most definately not a submission violation.

(that bell line at the end is derived from the theme.)

good stuff.

There's some instances of clipping/audio glitches like at 1:02, 1:38. Not too annoying I suppose.

Overall, the mixer did a good job with the arrangement. I had no trouble recognizing the mix. The vocals start out very ify, but soon settle in nicely. Great effects processing, I love the vocoding and the ambient washes. This actually reminds me of Days go By by Dirty Vegas. Definitely worthy of a YES.
