Mario Kart: Road Rage [Still Recruiting]

Recommended Posts

My intention was for the whole series, I'm pretty dedicated to getting songs from every game on the album.

If anything, we should leave them out of it. SMK has 4 accepted remixes and MK64 has 5. DS has one, and none of the others have any at all.

Essentially, I'm against leaving any games off, but I'm VERY strongly opposed to just making it focus on SNES and N64. Frankly, in my opinion, the best of the series' music isn't on either of them, besides Mario Circuit and the two Rainbow Road songs.

well, you have to remember, those are the oldest games, and generally has an easier melody to work with.

Not true, it depends on how conservative you are. In order to be a ReMix, all you need is a clear influence from the original. You can vary as much as you want, as long as it's identifiable as the source. What can make melodies difficult is the composition, not the platform they're on. Sure, the more advanced the console, the more advanced the whole song can be, but the melody is only one aspect of it. It's all the backing, effects, and percussion that makes most simple songs complex, and if you include them in a remix the way they are in an original, it's deemed too conservative.

(My first real post on this forum!)

I would love to take a crack at Toad's Turnpike and maybe mix in some of the melody from Koopa City (Neo-Bowser City).

I need a goal and some motivation to remix something and this project is it!

I'm not particularly talented in actually remixing, but I'm extremely willing to add spoken word type vocals, or like shouts and stuff.

If anyone would like that kind of input, just PM me!

I'd like to do the SNES Rainbow Road. And can I do a Koopa Beach/Vanilla Lake mix instead of a Choco Island/Vanilla Lake mix?

Whoever ends up doing Rainbow Road could include a couple of lines of the lyrics by Rhymes with Stomach. That would be hilarious.

You've added to me to GBA version of Rainbow Road, but I want to do the SNES version. Could you fix that before there will be misunderstandings?

Whoops, so sorry. I must have clicked the wrong one. I'll fix that right away.

Pokie, do you have specific rules on this? As in how many songs can be mixed together? The remix that I have started actually already contains three themes (maple treeway, dk summit and kart selection screen). Is that ok as long as the main theme is the one selected?

That's more than fine, as long as Maple Treeway is dominant. Or if you want to have DK Summit and Maple Treeway share the limelight, that's also great!

The only real guidelines I have are that you run a mix by myself, Brushfire, and Electrolisystem before submitting it to the judges panel, and that you put your best efforts into the mix. I hope (as I'm sure Brushfire and Electro do, too) that this album can become an official OCR release, but we can't do that without a solid number of OCR-acceptable tracks.

No deadline yet. I don't think enough tracks have been claimed to set one. I think as of right now, remixers can finish up anything they're working on and clear some space for their Road Rage mixes. So for now, you can get working as soon as you want to, but don't feel pressured to finish by a certain time.

Oh, on another note:

I don't know how these remix projects work, but, I have a friend who may be interested in this project who isn't a member...is it alright if I recruit his help?

I'm no veteran, but I do love Mario Kart.

Would it be alright with you if I join in and do Airship Fortress?

Or Waluigi Pinball, if it has to be a song from your list.

(If this is something that is for the far-ish future, I could cover both, I bet. Your call, though.)
