OCR02936 - Donkey Kong Country 'A Different Kind of Peace'

Recommended Posts

Pretty cool transformation of the source. I would've liked the mixing to be a bit more in-your-face, as it felt a bit weak in comparison to some of the stuff I heard from ISW Juggernaut demos, but otherwise this is quite enjoyable. :)

This is a pretty cool ReMix just for the dramatic and slightly tense Zimmer style of arrangement being applied to Aquatic Ambiance. The Scuba/Vader-like effects were a nice touch. My only complaint is that at around 2:30 in length, it kinda leaves me wanting more because it had such a great run while it was going and I was thoroughly enjoying it. But, I supposed that is where the replay button comes in. Over and over again. Awesome mix, man.

When I heard this previewed (from Patreon), I thought maybe whoever uploaded it somehow failed to upload the rest of the song, and they'd catch it when the post went live. Great stuff, but way too short, I would have loved another 3-4 minutes of this.

Well-named! This different kind of peace is certainly what a modern cinematic Donkey Kong trailer would sound like, abbreviated length and all.

Wait a second. Let me check on something.

Yep, I can confirm that this song works very well when played over the

Beautiful piece, for sure. So different from the direction many mixes have taken with the source material. It's a shame it's so short, but other than that, I've no other complaints about this mix. Great work!

So, you see "Aquatic Ambience" and think "Duh... Another mix of this tune..." But you don't expect to hear this - a dynamic, cinematic arrangement that (despite its length) is pure mind-blowing goodness. It's just so awesome, so amazing, so beautiful, so great - I can't describe how much I love this. The combination of pulsing bass, quiet piano-assisted sections and more powerful ones works greatly. My favorite section is 1:42-2:22 <3 Though, it doesn't remind me any heroic theme, it sounds more like a tune for a storm: both dark and light, intensive and so dramatic.
