OCR02461 - Star Fox 64 & Final Fantasy Mystic Quest 'Star King'

Recommended Posts

Woah. This was a big surprise.

Breakbeat electronica is a genre that's very hit or miss for me, and I'd like to congratulate you for pulling off an extremely awesome song here, DaMonz. The soloing is absolutely awesome, some of the best I've heard on this site. A staple of the genre (at least from all of what I've heard) being glitchy effects / drums are being used very well here. Also, I'm digging the soundscape and atmosphere of the song! That jump from the piano section back to the conclusion was awesome. Great focus on the dynamics in this song.

Recommending this song to anyone reading. Again, great stuff! :)

That was a highly intriguing mix. Kept my attention for a while, and that's getting harder and harder to do nowadays.

Also, very cheddar-y at the beginning.

Congratulations on being posted dude! I've seen your stuff every now and then and I knew it was only a matter of time before I started seeing it on the front page. You have quite the impressive debut going for you, and I can't wait to see what else you plan on showing us. Great work!

I know this for a while now from the WIP forums and have it on my player since then (just listened to it a few minutes ago). I really like the style. And of course Starwolf's theme is my favorite tune from Starfox 64.

Awesome

Interesting song here. Just a bunch of crazy fun action along with appropriate usage of voice clips. This is the type of song that doesn't usually get such a detailed treatment so it's a nice change of pace.

Want more!

Nice remix here, the source material doesn't change much yet the drums still manage to have a very uninterrupted, "dancey" flow to them. Usually electronica remixes have to sacrifice one for the other. The drums also remind me of the Ada's Groove remix, they have the same feel and prominence. Hope your future remixes are just as fast paced and fun!

I'm not a huge fan of electronica, and this didn't change my mind. The use of in-game voices was a nice touch, but the constant drums and sounds make it just too noisy for me.

Hm, very interesting ideas here. I only have a small problem with the obligatory stereo separation, but that's only because a lot of people break their earphones a lot. I don't, but I figure a lot of people I knew did. :P

Otherwise, this was a song that kept me listening until the end, so therefore I must have liked it! :D

Great job, DaMonz!

You took advantage of quiet parts of the song to work in the SFX which I thought was clever and it served as narration for the song. The breakbeat part at the end was quite impressive. Overall, great work!

Okay, really liking the idea of using the SFX in the quieter sections to make it like one of those "dramatic story" tracks from an official arranged album. Nice electronica arrangement sprinkled with good variation. Nice work with your original debut mixpost.

When someone uses vocal samples in his mix, they are gonna either ruin it totally, or make it incredibly awesome. Thankfully, here we got the latter. These samples really help to embrace the high-energy, adventurous atmosphere of this track. The breakneck percussion is simply jaw-dropping and the synth soloing is pretty impressive as well. Amazing track, Emery!
