OCR02233 - Streets of Rage 'Four Years Since...'

Recommended Posts

I love mixes in this vein. What that vein is, I can't really pin down, but they've got that soft, meandering, low-beat-in-the-background vibe to them. The kind of music you put for reflection during rainy walks at night in the City...which is what the Mixer seems like he was aiming for, so good work, man.

Beautiful, hope to hear more soon!

You just can't go wrong with a streets of rage mix! I like it. It sure is relaxing.

2 resubs? Great job by keeping at it until you proved it was a great idea. I wish I had the patience and motivation to go back to my no, resubs.

I've been waiting for more remixes from this source.

I must admit i was blown away by the style, completely different feel to the original version yet still in a sense staying true to the source.

Personally loved the audio clips of the sirens and helicopter noise, adds to the feel of the corrupt city in needs of someone to protect them.

Whatever it is i'm enjoying it alot.

Keep up the good work mate.

One of my favorite Yuzo Koshiro sources of all time, done in a great downtempo style. But, dude, where's my bassline? The source has a delightfully filthy FM bassline, while this remix has pretty much no low end at all (kick aside) until around 3:15 or so.

Nitpicks out of the way, I do enjoy the mix and it's definitely going on my iPod. There's a cinematic Parasite Eve-ish flavor to it (the percussion usage in particular feels very much like e.g. "Out Of Phase") that I really enjoy.

I love that a mix like this made it through. It's not flashy or high budget but it's true to the source and quite enjoyable to listen to; those SFX were a very nice touch. Good job, sir.

Fun little low key mix. Won't make it on my ipod with sirens in it though. Radio and other music with horns, sirens etc. just freaks me out when I'm driving.

Loving it dude listened to it at least 5 times today. It's a simple mix that is incredibly catchy and is full of complete nostalgia!

I never played streets of rage back in the day, but every time a remix comes out from it, I LOVE IT! Especially the streets of rage songs from Heroes vs. Villians! Anyways, great job on an awesome mix.

:-D ...I can't find words to describe what's going through my head!

Thank you all for the lovely feedback! Man, I'll probably just end up gushing and ranting on and on, so I'll just say, thank you!

We have been able to catch all streets of rage essence. :)

This is a great remix and far of, my favorite of some of the remixes on this community.

I would love to see more streets of rage remxed by you. I was really fond of your description of everything you made on the song. It is really great.

Good use of sfx.

I really like the atmosphere this song creates; as someone pointed out at the beginning of this thread, this is the kind of music you'd want to listen to while talking a walk on a rainy night.

Cop siren and helicopter at the beginning with the piano was a fantastic intro. Too bad I was brought up with a SNES and not a genesis, because maybe I'd be more framilier with Streets of Rage music rather than Final Fight. I'll be fixing that problem some day. Still, this mellow track has a nice hip hop beat to it and this sounds like something I'd except from a concept album based on the OST. Yeah, I love the SFX, and the way you spaced them out so that it wasn't overdone.

Has a special poignancy in the aftermath of Sandy (I'm fr Brooklyn and thankfully currently in one of the areas of Queens not-so-hard hit by the Hurricane).

Great mix. It's got that perfect combination of mellow-chill beats that's reassuring and reflective.
