I remember this mix from the GRMRB!

I seem to remember voting for this one, and you did lose against the runner up, so yeah... this was, and is, pretty good! :D

It finally made it! Congrats Draconiator!!!

I personally loved this track in the GRMRB 2011. I can see where the judges had their reservations in passing this, although I personally think the lead is just fine. Hope to hear more tracks like this from you.

Proud of ya man. Like I was saying earlier, going through that many revisions and turning the tide of the panel...had to be a hectic journey. The GRMRB made a lot of us grow and expand in a very short amount of time. Learning new styles, making pieces of video game music mash up in a way that most people wouldn't have even thought of.

This remix is pretty kickin'. :D

I'm glad I talked you into joining the tournament. Here's looking out for your sophomore mix to be posted.

Best of luck. :)

Whoa this sounds a lot better than the version from the GRMRB 2011. I liked it then, but this version is definitely 100x better. I'm still not terribly fond of that lead, but overall I dig it. Nice job!

This is a really well-balanced "competitive" Remix; I didn't feel like either source was overpowering the other in terms of usage or presence, which is how most tend to make me feel. Definitely an energetic piece, in a very good way - I usually prefer chiller pieces for multiple listenings, but this is definitely an exception; I foresee many, many replays of it.

Oh, and a belated congratulations on getting posted. :350::nicework:

Solid debut for sure. Both themes sound well-represented and the whole pop-hook electronica feel that he was going for was certainly obtained here. It has moments where it isn't as clear as the rest of the ReMix, but in a good way. Lots of texture and very effective instrument sounds here. Nice work, man.

I actually kinda liked the formant lead, though I thought a more open or more dynamically changing vowel would have sounded cooler. Maybe even a vocoder lead would have been sweet.

That aside, I like this retro atmosphere, and there was some nice development throughout. The highlight for me was at 3:02 - 3:33.

I love techno mixes like this. All you need is a small snippet of a catchy chiptune and you can embellish it in so many energetic and satisfying ways. Love the electronic tom toms that appear unpredictably. Section starting at 2:02 has a nice alternating clap-snare thing going on. Really dig it. Synth lead is definitely what makes this mix stand out. Cool flanger-y sound (did I get that right? lol) 

Can't quite hear any Spring Man theme tho...:-(
