OCR03116 - Castlevania 'Swing When You're Killing'


Recommended Posts

Ah, man, so smooth! With a jazzy piano piece like this, it's going to be hard to keep people from sliding all over the floor. I'm liking the uses of the vibraphone, which was amazing and perfect for this arrangement, as well the guitar and bass. Slick as hell, Nostalvania, I love this.

ah yeah, this was a good one. i suggested some drums in the wip thread, but i think this is perfect as is right now. i'd describe the sound as intimate, and the bass gives it some distinct rhythm. it doesn't need drums, and if it had some they'd have to be really interesting, something more than swingy hihats.

It was only a matter of time until someone did something like this!:nicework::nicework:

We all knew it was possible! It was only up to someone to actually do it!

I'd love to do a Brass swing version of the entire soundtrack. But man, sequencing and getting authentic sounding performance for that would be impossible ha

Ah, so Mr. Vania isn't doing piano-solo remixes only? :nicework: The acoustic bass is a really nice addition here, it adds something classy to the track, which is fitting for a jazz remix. The guitar and melodic percussion (dulcimer/xylophone?) coming up later are also fine choices of instrumentation. Everything sounds good together -- an interesting take on yet another Castlevania classic! (May I suggest adding some soft drums next time? :P)

Oh yeah, drums! I used them in most of my newer remixes. So your suggestion has already been implemented :)

 

Merci for the review!
