CALLOUT: Double Dragon arrangements! (Feb. 15th deadline for instant OCR mixposts!)

Recommended Posts

Well that was fast :o Shnabubula always kills it!

I have a pretty rad arrangement idea for a couple of tracks from DD1. Would love to get in on this too if I have time in the next few weeks! Even though I haven't submitted any mixes to OCR before.

Do we just submit our tracks the usual way, and you'll prioritize ones from DD games?

Right. Submit the normal way, and I'll be on the lookout. If it's passable, it'll go up ASAP. If it's not, it won't. :-D

Aw man. I started remixing that exact song, but this one's way better!

Don't let another mix of the same theme you're thinking of COW YOU. :-P Go for it!

What about Battletoads and Double Dragon? :o 

You say Double Dragon has 8 mixes on the site... so why DD in particular, I am just curious.. there's no mixes of Ni No Kuni, Remember Me, E.G.G., ObsCure, just off the top of my head.. how many Mickey Mousecapades mixes are on the site? Even Batman has 4 mixes.. is DD twice as deserving of more mixes? :lol:

Like I know I was critical of the butting the line thing, cause there's lots of stuff in the inbox, but I am JUST CURIOUS, this ain't no butthurt line of questioning. If I am somehow able to finish my move and record something by the deadline I'll surely send it in. 

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture? 

And yes I edited my post because I misspelled a game title not once, not twice, but 2 times

edit again: going for a fourth time... my gosh american public school system

Battletoads & Double Dragon counts, that's why it shows in the linked search and I linked the OST in the list of music from the series.

And Double Dragon deserves a billion times more mixes than the Batman series. :-)

All those other games you listed aren't large series. We can certainly do single game callouts, but series allows some broader soundtrack choices.

I'm probably ignorant but I haven't heard of a single one of your examples XD

Why Double Dragon? I was looking it up and noticed it had a lack of remixes. I actually didn't expect THIS to happen when I mentioned it in staff, but imo, its a landmark title in video game history with some insane music that deserves more remixes than it currently has on OCR, and apparently, the staff agreed with me :)

Sure, there are other games that have a sad lack of remixes (Pokemon was completely unrepresented when I joined OCR, something I thought was awful) but yeah, maybe this can be a thing that happens every now and then just to give some of those under remixed games some love?

Yeah, I don't see anything bad about this happening and, in fact, can only hope it happens more in the future. Terranigma could use some love.

Yup yup, I am planning stuff. Won't talk about it here though. No intention of drawing people away from this thread. Double Dragon is critcally under-represented game (As it happens, do you have an artist for the album cover yet? - I can't imagine how this won't become an album).

I have an idea for the Italy theme from Double Dragon 3, but I'm not sure yet, if it will be the only source. But getting it into a passable form is the more difficult task anyway

It was brought to my attention on Ben Briggs's stream that he has done the only Rayman remix on the site.

Maybe after this Double Dragon rush ends, we can get one for the Rayman series?

I can't remix for shit, but I'd like to post a link to the official live-recorded soundtrack for Double Dragon 2.  It's very cheesy, but some of the tracks are really brilliant and go farther than they did on consoles and the arcade.  "Advancing Towards Sunset" is a good example.   I would love to see what some of you could do with this, and anyway I am super-excited that OCR is finally trying to give the give the DD series some respect.

Yo honestly I think we need more Shatterhand remixes, but I'm not sure how many people on here care about that.

Careful, Shnabubula might sub his mix of that from NES Jamz as well lol

Oh man, is anyone doing the DD2 title screen (the revenge)?  If not, I want to give it a shot.

Don't think so, but it wouldn't matter if anyone else was. Do your thing!

I've got a few ideas going on and it's probably a bad idea but would I be able to get away with naming my remix "Heliport Lover" It's the DD2 Mission 2 theme. :nicework:

No problem with that title.
