OCR02488 - Donkey Kong Country 'A Hint of Blue'

Recommended Posts

Wow, this is beautiful. I recall hearing Mordi's remix of "Forest Interlude" on the work in progress forums and really liking what I heard. This mix, doesn't disappoint. Flowing pads, smooth leads, and it's a remix of one of my favorite tunes.

This is great work, and I look forward to hearing more from you on here man. :D

Very, very smooth. Not only does this mix closely stay true to its atmospheric roots, but when the guitar comes in...

It's obvious that there was a lot of courage involved to make such a strong pronunciation of the melody out of such a minimalistic song, but it works. Definite download, for sure.

I am a huge fan of the source to the point that I am very picky about remixes of it. I admit I was a little skeptical at first but once the cross-panned bit came in I started to warm up to it. But holy frig when that guitar and quarter note synth bass line hit I was totally sold. This mix is full of so many emotions. Even the watery ending was fitting instead of just another water ending to a water level song. May this be the first of many submissions!

Wow... just wow. My favorite two mixes on the site are now both from the same source (Beneath the Surface being the other one). VERY chill this, you can just close your eyes and let yourself be taken away by the sea and song

What I love so much about this mix is that it is fresh; and thats not to take credit away from any other remix of this source on the site. Especially with this mix being the source material that it is, and there being countless mixes of this song all across the internet. Yet with the selection and usage of samples, the mixing, it all ushers in a new approach to this specific source. I am definitely looking foward to more of your mixes! Now to the download page.

This is superlative. I don't think I properly appreciated just how timeless and classic this mix was until I read DJP's glowing writeup, and I must have listened to this at least a dozen times before that. However, after listening with a fresh perspective, I realized just how seamlessly Mordi has blended the source tune with his own original writing, and how absolutely flawless the production is... I'm really glad I've come around to love this as much as I do now :-) Excellent job guys.

Another Aquatic Ambience??

Yeeah!:-D

One of my favorite tracks and very well done!

Love the mood at 1:40. From there is the differential.

Hope to listen more of your mixes soon!

Ah, man, so slick and smooth like a nice shiny stone. And that electric guitar fits in so well as a driver to the main watery melody, helping things move along. For a downbeat, chill ReMix, this manages to keep a lot of the musical arrangement in the forefront and keep things interesting, which is cool and what I like to see from more easy-going ReMixes. Good job, you two.

There are a lot of Aquatic Ambience mixes, sure, but this one stands out for me, because it manages to keep the feeling of ambience from the original. The intro is very long, almost quarter of the whole thing, but it's perfect for the mellow, relaxing mood of this mix. And once this track picks up, it becomes even better. Even the guitar doesn't spoil the idle atmosphere here. Also, gotta love that tides + ivories break ot 5:08. This work is sooo sweeeet ans sooo dreamy. Love it.

Great mix! I dont get tired of Aquatic Ambiance as a track that gets remixed. This is definitely in my top two for this particular song so far. Very well done and excellent job putting it together.

Thanks a lot, Black_Doom! I studied original quite a lot, and I believe I also extracted the individual channels of it to get as close as I could with some elements. I think that goes a long way to keep the original feel.
