OCR02606 - *YES* Sonic the Hedgehog 3 'Funky Side Up' *RESUB*

It's been a long time since I subbed something. I dabbled in remixes all the while and nothing seemed to click, but fortunately the planets seemed to align for this one.

It all started when I found out about Nerdapalooza in my hometown of Orlando FL, and couldn't miss an opportunity to see the One Ups get down live. I had no idea that I would run into Mr. Larry Liontamer Oji himself at an OCR table there. I chatted with him and Level 99 (cool dude) for a while before he eventually asked me my name, and I must say that the enthusiasm and surprise that followed was something I honestly did not expect. Not only did he remember me and my submission despite the years, but had a lot of encouraging words and nothing short of a demand for more music. It was then settled - I would get off my ass and really make some music for OCR.

The events that followed were quite divine. Larry hooked me up with a hard copy of The Sound of Speed (amazing Sonic). I happened to stumble upon the chiptune album FM Funk Maddness (amazing funk). I happened to get the Death Egg theme stuck in my head (not so amazing, but quite coincidental). Then, the spirits of Larry, DJP, and Sebastian Shaw (NOT Hayden Christensen) appeared before me at a party with small furry creatures, and I then knew what must be done!

Shout outs to Superior X for naming my remix and giving feedback, Larry for the encouragement past and present, DJP, Virt, and Bomb Boy for funk inspirations, and the whole OCR community for being what it is.

*NOTE THAT THE MP3 SEEMS CORRUPTED AT THE END- WE WILL NEED A NEW FILE*

Nice touchups, definitely feeling this arrangement!

That bass is ridonku-groovin, there are some nice breakdowns and changeups, and some solid clav-i-motionz. This is great stuff, I love it!!!

Oh my god this sounds great! This completely addressed any issues I had with my last vote and just sounds so much better now.

YESSS

I'd argue this has moments of sounding too busy for its own good, but on the whole the arrangement is obviously a clear pass. Related to the busyness, I might have made a few balance tweaks by pulling back on some of the synth comping, but it wasn't a huge deal in the big picture. Everything's sounding much stronger and much more cohesive. Nice work, Paul, and an official welcome back! :nicework:

I liked this before, so here's my vote again.

I love this. That slap bass has a really lo-fi retro arcade game soundtrack sound to it, like Sonic and Tails in some Final Fight-esque beat 'em up where they cruise the streets of DEATH EGG CITY beating up the BADNIK GANG.

OH! SHELLSHOCK!

Diggin' those gated synths and the smooth rhodes. Love it!
