OCR01519 - Donkey Kong Land "Revisiting the Ruins"


Recommended Posts

omg how did I miss this one?!

Classically beautiful and pristine. This has such a controlled and elegant approach, but it's so full of life. Adding to the fact that i'd probably never hear the source tune otherwise, this is a total gem. I am absolutely in love with the marimba sounding instrument that comes in with all the delays near the beginning. Great emotive guitar playing, and some very well used and thought out effects.

I'm sad that there's only one mix of his at OCR, when he has several on his site that would fit in pretty well.

Anyways, I can't recommend this mix enough, and also check out the tracks on his homepage.

I don't remember hearing this one, but I couldn't help but take a look when I saw it said it was by Patrick Burns by it.

This mix for the most part still a nice song, although I think one of the lower end synths could've been worked on.

How you managed to make a song from this game sound so beautiful is beyond me.

Close your eyes and you feel like your swinging from the treetops, waterfalls cascading in the background, creating mini rainbows. Then you dive into the crystal clear water and swim off through some sort of lost civilisation, observing the beauty of this pristine world, Finally, you resurface into the glow of sunset, feeling content and at peace with the world

Great stuff here by Mr. Burns

Ah, smooth bossa nova... That's just what the doctor ordered. Don't get the idea of title, though, because I can't imagine ruins at all when I'm listening to this piece. The guitar work is pretty fine indeed and the bass @2:09 is nice as well. Very cool relaxing tune :)
