This is pretty catchy. I think I would probably go with a borderline 'YES' if I had to vote on it.. pretty nice variations you have going on, solid groove, good production, I like it.

Am I even allowed to comment on this mix in the presence of Rayza and Zircon? I'm a fan of both of those guys, and this is what I would expect from Rayza. Pretty freaking badass. Since I couldn't hope to find anything wrong with this mix, I will say this deserves to reach the ears of the masses on OCR. *bows* well done, sir. My hat's off to you.

Yeah, this needs more variation in general. It could use more synthleads to switch between. Also changing the rythm in some places would do, as the song sounds pretty similiar all the way through. Again, this needs more variation in the sounds used. I Think it sounds a bit more like a wip, it's enjoyable, but not there yet.

if I were a judge I won't pass this one. Too close to the original (that's also one of the worst BGMs in Sonic 2, imo), and as already said, too repetitive.

Sorry to be so rude, but I find this remix to be meaningless.

I dig this, I love the way the bass works in this arrangement, and the guitarrish sounding synth that does the melody works really well too. I'm gonna have to follow the bandwagon and say that you probably should put some more variation in, but this is hi qual stuff.

first of all... I also dislike (I'm being nice) this music in sonic. but the remix is cool... if you're considering it as a WIP, meybe you should do some more arrangement, like many people said.

and I don't know if it's just me, but this song had quite an "arabian" touch... mainly in the beggining. it reminded me of belly dance music, until 0:30, when the eletronic stuff begins!

I say "touch" because I think that later it lost this feeling... if you intended to make it that way, I think you've forgot it as your worked went on. If that's not the case, maybe you could arrange it that way! ;)

I second this wholeheartedly. This has been my absolute favorite wip ever since the very beginning. SUBMIT THIS!

BTW, where did you get the percussion samples starting 1:24. Those are great!

You'd have to ask Gecko about that.. I did the lead synths and a few background synths. It's mostly his work actually. And I wasn't really planning on submitting this, just found it again and wondering what y'all were thinking of it.

Thanks for the comments tho!

Oh, this caught me unprepared. GeckoYamori, I read that name in the song and then realized, HEY, I've seen you before! First on the SuperPlay-forums and then also on the Studio-forums.

Hiii!!! ;P

And about the mix, haven't got much to say; it's not kickass awesome, according to my taste, but in a technical point-of-view it's nothing to complain about at all.

Ive actually had this for a long time, for some reason... I was wondering why I couldn't find it on the site...

I like it, but as quite a few others have else said, it could use a little more variation. Perhaps you could add one of those cool flute things that snake charmers use (known as pungi).

But, yeah, if I was a judge, i'd pass this.
