PRC230 - Mechanical Attack!! (Command & Conquer)

The People's Remix Competition 230

PRCv9-22

Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

Last round Parasite Eve's Wheel of Fortune was remixed. DrumJ8 entered the challenge, but his song was overpowered by Hoboka who claimed victory. Now it is time for PRC230, which is the 100th PRC I run as administrator.

This round's source is selected by Hoboka:

The C&C series needs more love on VGmusic and OCR =(

Anyhoo, this is not all that difficult, compositional wise, but emulating the atmosphere and sfx may be a bit of a challenge, if you're going for a more conservative feel. If you wanna go liberal, my biggest suggestion to you is to focus on the bassline, regardless, for it's the strongest and perhaps most recognizable part of this track, imo

there's many good tracks in C&C, and this is one of em. I remember watching the cinematic in C&C for tiberian sun I think and this kept playing while the mechanisms of mechanical robot was revealed, good memories :)

also, I uploaded my different kind of remix of the song to thesauce :razz:

Wow well thanks for keeping it going, it's definitely a fun competition!

Probably the quickest remix submission in history..

I wasn't really planning on making time for this round - too damn busy with school, work, and jiu jitsu.. But this sounds like a really really really fun source, I'll try to make something if I can :sleepdepriv:

well, I just opened ocr just to check for some songs, and saw this competition and made the song in just about 2,5hours or so, havent done any game songs lately and this was pretty good/easy to work around so I gave it a shot :)

One of the fastest for sure. In PRC196, Toilet Goat submitted pretty fast as well.

Good, good, can't wait to see what you guys can come up with. I've actually tried a hand at remixing this source tune and have 1 completed version and another half completed. First one didn't make the OCR panel, and 2nd one, well I ran out of inspiration :( But maybe I can get some closure with your guys' takes on Mechanical Man :<

EDIT

Also WOOT WOOT at PRC 230 and Bundaslang's 100th compo as admin :D Keep the good times rollin' Bunda <3

Probably the quickest remix submission in history..

I know rite :D Also don't forget about my prize for winning last round ya slacker :3

2nd EDIT

Didn't realize that you had quoted Toilet Goat, so I ended up deleting a quote within a quote. Amazing how the brain works when drunk >.<

Seriously? Wow, kudos Kevin, that's quite a feat. You should make a new 'PRC commercial' to celebrate the achievement. ;)

One song, one winner. Toilet Goat wins by default. Voting is open, so you can leave comments if you want. You are free to post them in this thread as well.

Congratulations Toilet Goat, you win. You may select the source for PRC231. Send your source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix).

You may select any source from any game, as long as it doesn't have an Overclocked Remix and it hasn't been on PRC before. Check it at the list:

Send your source as fast as you can, but before Friday

I quite enjoyed Toilet Goat's track, and after listening to the source, I was even more impressed. Nothing wrong with the original, but the new piece had a good drive. Especially the melody was made to work in a really uplifting manner, it felt really exciting in the reworking.
