OCR01311 - Super Mario 64 "Fleeting Ecstasy"

Recommended Posts

If I'm not mistaken, the "Yeah!" is Flavor Flav right? My sister watches a LOT of "The Surreal Life" and it sounds just like him.

I have no idea. I think it has something to do with Def Jam. Or something. I don't really know. But the sample actually says "YEEEAHH BOOYEEE!"

If that helps.

Kinda.

-chth

If anyone still cares, the sample came from Public Enemy - Bring the Noise. So yes, it was Flava Flav. Anyways, nice house mix of the Wingcap theme.

Now this is invulnerability. 8-)

I love how you turn a 15 second song into a 4 minute remix.

:-D me, too.

Freaking awesome mix and great job.

This is not only a great mix, but has been my absolute favorite OC ReMix for the majority of my time listening to them. So funky, and so joyful. chthonic, I love how your mixes always seem so happy and free.

Holy crap. I never knew the "power star" sound track would be this good. This totally took my breath away turning into a break dance. Excellent complexity and motion +A must listen! :nicework:

Pretty good stuff- I think the original music is a really difficult to do right because of how repetitive it is, but there are some great additions to this. I actually think that the treatment to this melody would be better served on a more interesting source, but it's still a great listen, with some solid transitions, and some well-deserved breakdowns of the source.

If you love that star power theme you won't find anything better than this one.

Oh man that sax worked so well in this one. Not a bad ReMix at all, and the inclusion of the Flav sample as well as switching up the styles as the mix went along definitely justified turning a short source into a four minute song. Nice work.

This song is actually from Yoshi's Island and the track is called "Powerful Infant." When making the invincible music for Super Mario 64, Koji Kondo built on the invincible track from previous Mario games. The main theme comes from Super Mario Bros. The baseline was introduced in Super Mario World. And the newer notes (Do. Do. Do. Dooooo. Do.) were introduced in Yoshi's Island. As far as I can tell, the remix doesn't feature any notes exclusive to Super Mario 64, so it should probably be labeled under Yoshi's Island.
