Never heard of this game. The songs sound remix-able though!

Unfortunately, I can only deliver with mellow sounds, so I'll pass on this one.

Oo, definitely an interesting project! Once I've worked through my current commitments I'll have a go at claiming a track as there is never enough 90's Sega love!! All the best with recruitment :)

This would be good. Very good.

A quick update: Turns out Dj Mokram was planning a GH project for a while, so we joined forces and he is now co-directing the project. OP has been amended to reflect this.

I listened to all the tracks there and I'd love to take a claim but I'm not sure if I have the necessary background genre-wise.

Good luck with the project!

I'd like to emphasis that there are no genre restrictions per se. Simply a focus on modern-sounding and intensity-driven interpretations.

So long as you can bring the energy, you're welcome to give it a try. :)

I'd like to grab "Decision" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGnQeSyp9Ek ) but I'm not sure how much I can get done for a WIP "within 2 weeks of claiming" because this week I'm mixing for the Sonic Remix Compo while juggling an original project and changing day jobs. That cool?

No prob. If you're up for arranging, we'll hold your claim within the limits of reason.

We just want to avoid having people sit on their claims for months on end, that's all. ;)

Hit me or DusK via PM to give us a general idea of your availability and we'll mark you down. :)

Any possibility of me taking the source 'Legend of the Gunstars'?

I've definitely got an awesome idea in mind for it.

Gee-tar leeds ga-lore.

You have no idea how happy seeing this made me. Gunstar heroes was one of those games that dominated my childhood. The soundtrack is woefully undermixed and I can't wait to hear all the great remixes. :)!!

For myself, I would like to claim the track "Military at the Max-Power. That track always was one of my favorites amidst a sea of already awesome tracks.

I PM'd Dusk (I think) and as soon as I get the green light I'll get to work :-D

Marking you down for Legend of the Gunstars. Welcome aboard my friend. :)

Hi there Mike. Could you check in with us (via PM) before you begin working on anything?

Cause if you present a wip that does not fit the project direction, we'll be forced to decline.

And we really don't want to turn down the very few people who actually know about the game. ;)

So please get in touch with us asap. Thanks in advance.

CJ, I remember that Seven Force/Stage 1 remix you did last year. Always great to have some enthusiastic GH fans oboard.

The exemple track you provided seems to fit our direction, but be warned: this source is one of the most iconic tracks from the game.

We'll be expecting nothing short of a mind blowing interpretation. So if you're up for a good challenge, then you're on. 8-)

Omg I'd LOVE to make a progressive track out of Bravoo Man; I've JUST started listening to it, haven't even hit any of the other tracks, but I've been needing to get back into complex time sig's, and this source sounds like just the thing to do it

Mikeaira has a tentative claim for that source. Maybe I could persuade you to choose another? I'll let you know if it frees up.

Yeah, as DusK said someone already put a tentative claim on it. We're sorting this one out right now.

But with your style Pete, I think you would do awesome on tracks like Defeat Pinky Roader! or Theme of Golden Silver.

Let us know anytime. And good luck with your next mix/match in the lizard bracket. :)

Oh lordy, yeah those are both great. I'll get back to you guys on Saturday once I (as mentioned) finish my Sonic track, and can more thoroughly listen. Pinky Roader wants a prog makeover too ;)

EDIT: Throw me down for Pinky Roader, I'll try to have a WIP by the end of the week

You should try to get Mazedude for Golden Silver ;D

Sure thing. You're on Pete. :)

The sweeter the dream, the bitter the disillusion. ;P

After the initial wave of claims the first wips are beginning to come in. Let's keep the ball rolling, many great tracks are still available.
