Underground Theme

I've been a fan of the site and the talent on it for quite some time now, but always found the prospect of submitting my own work a little daunting (since I haven't remixed VG music since my midi days). But, I decided to take a break from my comic to do a short but sweet oldschool tribute and give back to the community that's entertained me so much. I truly hope someone out there digs on this slice of underground Disco House groove.

Sincerely,

-Xero Reynolds

Yeah, beyond everything Vig the Boner Kebab said, the instrumentation (before things filled out at :48) was really weak and generic, which was unfortunate, because I thought the texture sounded decent despite that. I also heard some odd (though interesting) note patterns with your brass.

At 1:28, the use of the source tune dropped out. Normally that's not bad, but that's not a good idea if the previous usage of the source in the mix is so underdeveloped and underexplored. When dealing with such a minimalist source tune that requires rearrangement and/or expansion, you've gotta play around with it for a good deal of the mix.

This needs more substance in the arrangement and more direction, alongside better sounds (though they weren't used badly). Decent effort for a more tongue-in-cheek style remix. Half a decade ago, it coulda been a contenda. [/brando]

A successful attempt at straying completely from the original theme, too much so in fact. The drumbeat is horrible. At least the instrumentation is thorough.

Short and basic original song.

Given how short this is, the source is only minimally present and developed; and so I really don't think this is suitable for the site. If you were to more prominently incorporate the theme however, this might have the potential to pass.

Fun stuff, though.
