PRC256 - Winner Announced - Dynamite Tower (Dynamite Headdy)

Recommended Posts

The People's Remix Competition 256


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

The previous round will not be remembered as the most legendary PRC round. Still two remixers entered, ending with only one point difference. Trism claimed victory.

Here's my pick for PRC256; Puppet Tower from Dynamite Headdy. It's always surprised me that there are so few remixes on the site for this insane game (only 1!!), so maybe this might produce another one :)

PRC instructions

  1. Limitations at ThaSauce require your entry to be 20 MB or less in size. Length for length's sake and MIDI rips are not allowed (only as Bonus Mixes). If anyone has problems with uploading songs to ThaSauce let me know (in this thread) and post a download link to your song in this thread (so I can upload it to ThaSauce).
  2. Entries must be posted in the ThaSauce link by MONDAY October 28th 2013 at 11:59 am ThaSauce time: check my signature (below) or the ThaSauce page for the exact time left.
  3. You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix. You are free to create a second ThaSauce account for that, it's needed to be able to upload a second remix. You can also post the song in this thread if that doesn't work. Then I'll make sure it works.
  4. Do not make qualitative comments on an entry until the results of the vote have been posted in this thread.
  5. Mixers cannot vote for themselves but if they vote they recieve a free first place vote added onto their score.
  6. The winner of this round may select the source for PRC257.
  7. The winner of PRC255, Trism, cannot take part in this round. However, he is free to submit a bonus mix and his vote counts twice.
  8. You can find the full rules list at this page as well.

Nevere heard of this game actually but damn this is funky, such a great tune!

Oh man, this saddens me greatly. It's one of the best platformers on the Mega Drive (Genesis for most of you guys of course) and the soundtrack is amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of this round :)

Yeah, I think this is fate.
Nah, it's actually Maruyama jamming the Judges inbox. In reality there are hundreds of Dynamite Headdy remixes being sent to OCR every single day. :lol:

@Trism: The remix you mention used to be part of an album, before the KNGI-pocalypse.

@Eino: Thanks for linking to the thread via twitter. Would have missed it otherwise. ;)

Posting in this thread to reiterate my undying love for the People Remixing Competition. I've learned so much during the course of this compo, and some of my best works originated from it. Major props to Bundeslang for soldiering-on and pushing forward despite the (at times) lukewarm reception and modest attendance. I cannot recommend this compo enough, whether you're a newbie or a veteran. Just drop the mainstream stuff and step in the arena to challenge yourself at remixing some amazing under-appreciated gems. You won't regret it!

Actually, I said "this is fate" because I've been sitting on a concept for a remix of this source that I've had since the development of SBP, but considering how much work would go into the remix compared to most of my other stuff, I didn't have a real reason to get around to it. Now I do.

I forgot to vote :/ I was going to vote while driving in to work this morning but then I felt bad because I hadn't had a chance yet to listen to evktalo's track and couldn't give feedback ..

I have since listened to it and I liked evktalo's track a lot, I liked the groove. Although there were only two elements, they were two pretty good elements that worked well together. You mentioned you'll add it to the list to finish someday, and I hope you do come back to it soon and finish it :D
