The People's Remix Competition 264

PRCv11-04

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

Three songs appeared last round. The round before, Ichitootah returned and this time he managed to win the round. MindWanderer was close but couldn't stop him. Esperado ended on the third position.

Space Station Silicon Valley was one of my favorites way back when, and I still <3 the soundtrack.

This chill little track is called Snow Joke.

Is there a minimum length for entries? Would, for example, 2 minutes be alright? I am only available from the middle of next week but would still be very interested in joining.

2 Minutes is fine, most songs are around that length. Most songs are between 1-3 minutes.

Good luck:-D:

maek sum mixes bitchezz!

i listened to some of the other tunes from the game, and it seems like a jolly ripoff fest :D

eye of the tiger was just one of several obvious ones.

but i really like the sample selection, and it seems like a unique game.

i read you can smash the speakers in the stages, which causes the BGM to stop playing. that's awesome.

Complete! =D

The intention of this remix was to keep the vibe of the song but add some original sections to spice it up. I am not really what genre I would put it in...cheese rock maybe?

This is my first remix ever so every bit of feedback is very much appreciated. I had no idea how to write drums or mix a track before I did this so feedback in those areas is particularly welcome. When I get the time, I intend to extend it with another section with an original melody and probably another one that pulls some instruments out to let it groove. The sloppy guitar / organ work will also be redone :)

Thanks to Ichitootah for suggesting the source, it was so much fun to play around with.

Thanks to Bundeslang for doing all of the organisation and to Ichitootah for picking the source. This was great fun and I can't wait until the next round =D

And congratulation to Showroom Dummy for the win. Your track was great with lots of really cool synth bits.

my bad, thought I had until tonight to vote. Anyway--

Showroom Dummy's had catchy beats, wobbly synths, and sounded anthemic. Solid work!

Skoshu's I would have voted for, very intricate and skillfully made. Good enough for OCR imo.

Jonathan!'s was also great, live guitar and pretty faithful arrangement with some solos and stuff.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to mix one of my favorite little VGMs :)

Edit:

Here are more tracks from SSSV that are worth a listen should you have the time and inclination:

Far Bear Mountain

The Battery Farm

Penguin Playpen

(which I suspect might be one of the ripoffs Nase mentioned, but if so, from where?)

to me it doesn't get better than catchy little swing tunes with an old school vg soundset. woohoo

You can tell! As I said in my vote, the arrangement and production were fantastic.

And thanks for the encouragement :) I intend to enter these competitions whenever I have the time.
