Zup humans!

Been working on a remix of the underground theme from yoshi's island for the past 5 days. Its a WIP and I feel like my ears have become numb from listening to it for 5 days straight and I really need to hear what other people think about the mix and the arrangement.

Original

 

My remix, latest version

Sounds good to me. If I were to nitpick, I would say that the snare used in the middle breakdown (near 1:32) seems unfittingly powerful. Maybe have it be more filtered (maybe band-passed?) and softer to reflect the dynamics of the atmosphere around it. The hi hat transient near 1:32 could also be slightly softer, and the FM lead at 2:45 seems fairly abrasive for the ambient atmosphere you have... (especially at 3:06).

Thanks for the feedback! I have updated my post with an updated version of the song. I also increased the tempo slightly.

Update: I've been mixing the song little by little and at this time it is quite different from my original upload so I've updated my original post with the latest version of the song. I feel like it's ready for review.

Update: After a few days of resting my ears I had a short mixing session. Small tweaks here and there mostly to the low end. I also worked on the lead synth (near the end) and got pretty happy with it :) Thread is updated with the newest version of the mix.

I really like it!  Could you provide a download link?

Glad to hear! I have enabled "download" on soundcloud. Keep in mind that this is still WIP tho :) Although I pretty much consider this done I'll wait a couple of days for more feedback before marking this as "ready for review".

Ready for a review

Sorry for the long wait on a formal review. If you haven't already submitted this, please send it over. Very creative & unorthodox interpretation and it sounds great overall; not much else to add other than I look forward to you submitting it so we can post it to the front page! :-)

Wait, this wasn't posted yet?  I've had it in my OCR playlist for about a year thinking that it was already posted to the site.  Get to submitting it!!
