OCR01361 - Star Fox "Fortuna Favors the Funk"

Recommended Posts

This mix is excellent! In fact, I love ALL the funk mixes from this site.

Is it me, or does some parts early in the song seem to skip... :?

Anyway, just so you composers know...people (maybe just me) dance to these funk mixes, so keep em' comming. Its like these mixes are made for popping and locking.

This is some sweet stuff djp. I really don't listen to much funk, but after all of the great coverage by you, I think i'm gonna go find some. Great Job! :D

Holy crap, do I love this. At least, I did. For some reason, after listening to it for about two minutes, it starts to get boring. . . I'm not entirely sure how else to explain it. It just sort of gets dull after the first half of the song. But then again, there's not much to work with in the first place.

But anyway, nice job.

And yeah. I didn't feel like a full-fledge review. Sorry.

I didn't think it was anything special at first, listening through these crappy speakers. Then I listened with headphones and the sound quality shot way up and could hear so much more power. Then on top of that the whole mix started piecing together and not just sounding like one dull sound happening over and over--repetitious as the guy above me might be experiencing. It's like a section of the piece was added to the song when switching to headphones, probably because by the time that part around the song had been sort of blocked from my head, which sometimes happens with songs on first or second listens.

I wish the solo was gone about a bit differently. Its ending with the 16th triplets just made it sound like some really generic solo from DJP.

HAHAHHAHAHA

I bet I know what that is. There's a pretty prominent percussion sample used on a 16th offbeat which made me think something was wrong the first couple of times it happened. I had gotten used to it on the speakers, but even more so on the headphones to where it seemed to fit perfectly. Just count by fours to the whole song and eventually you'll find out there's no skipping.

Love it, as others have said it has gone into my folder! The only thing that I wasnt so keen on was the lead synth sound but thats the only thing that stuck out the rest superb. I think I'll have another listen now! It really takes me back I think I'll crack out my copie of starwing (fortuna was on the hard rout wasnt it? with those funky water dino things, as well as large plant flower things??)

Djpretzel needs an apprentice or something so we can more funk songs than once a year.

I totally agree. Djp brings the awesome funk, and we need more. This song is the shit.

Y'know, DJP's getting on, and I was beginning to think he just might've been over it ... then I heard this track :) The man still has it, and we are all better off for it. First track I downloaded at my new residence.

iPod rating: 5 stars

ROFL! 25 and over the fuckin' hill! Yeah, I had lost all faith in that man until he funked it with this track! [DarkeSword] :roll: [/DarkeSword]

Quite a bit o' chez, man. Almost too much. Needs more funk and less chez. Kinda reminds me of a haunted house or SotN or something...whoa, the end is sweet. Where's more of that?

I love this one almost as much as Love Hurts. Perhaps more. Heck, I'll just say that I like them both equally. I love the great rhythms in this song and just the overall funky-spacey feel. I was a little disappointed, though, that the off-beat 16th notes stopped after only a few plays at the beginning. It confused me for a bit as I wasn't sure if I'd heard them correctly or not the first time through.

Funky.

It reminds me of the Ghost Houses from Super Mario World slightly in terms of musical themes but more in a terms of atmosphere.

The first half has too much of a white noise feel. Aurally, the soundscape isn't too vary to much, feel's repetitive. If you're looking for something funky to spice up your day, then check this out. Otherwise I remain a solid neutral in opinion about this; it's not bad but neither is it spectacular or groundbreaking.

Okay, before you dis this comment for being irrelevant, I must point out that a Title is a big part of a piece of music, it forms the music's identity before the music is even heard!

"Fortuna Favors the Funk" is an amazing accomplishment of titling.

For those who feel that despite my argument this comment is still obnoxiously irrelevant, I listened to the music and as far as I can tell, it's a good example of funk!

everything was solid except for the weird timing on some of the snare hits- i kept thinking a beat was being dropped. :/

Sorry DJP, can't get into this one that much, even though it's 90% great. :-(
