4. submitted Street Fighter V - Jazzy NYC Remix ("Bronx Bomber")

12 posts in this topic

In my ten years as a member of OC Remix, I've only ever once submitted a song to the judges, and said submission was soundly (and rightfully) rejected. Since the time of my last submission (approximately eight years ago), I feel that my musicianship has improved markedly, both in terms of my ability to arrange a song, and my ability to play instruments. As such, I am submitting a remix that I feel confident will get accepted, and even if not, I am still satisfied by how much I've grown as a musician. 

Having said all that, my remix is of the ever popular (at least among us YouTube remixers) "Jazzy NYC" by Hideki Okugawa. The composition originated with 1997's Street Fighter III: New Generation, but the latest iteration appears in 2016's Street Fighter V. Five versions of the theme have appeared throughout the main Street Fighter series (Underground Edit, Street Edit, NY House Mix, '99, '16). My remix is based primarily on the Underground Edit. I incorporated the police sirens, and part of the violin melody, but dispensed of the James Brown/Lyn Collins sample. I opted for a guitar solo in place of the marimba solo found in the original song, which was a choice influenced by the Street Fighter V version of the theme. A number of disparate musical influences contributed to the sound of this remix, including; Kool and the Gang, Joe Daniels (Local H), Janet Weiss (Sleater Kinney), Victor Wooten, Cliff Burton (Metallica), and A Tribe Called Quest.

You really put a lot of work into this. I actually like this better than the original. I love the guitar solo. The sound quality is really good. I use Logic Pro X but always have a sweet spot for Garageband.

Thank you for the compliment! I certainly put forth my best effort in creating my arrangement of this song. I've dabbled with so many DAWs over the years, including Pro Tools, Reason, NanoStudio, and of course GarageBand. One day, I'd like to get Logic Pro for my Mac.

My favourite version of this theme is the '99 one in Third Strike. I'm liking your take on it better than what I remember the Street fighter 5 version sounding like. The tone of guitar and sax is especially cool. Good luck.

Thank you for the well wish. I have not yet received a rejection notice, so it would seem that I have a chance at getting approved. Also, I am glad that you enjoyed my take on the theme. Thank you for listening and commenting.

If there were anything more I'd want from this, it might some form of auxiliary percussion. But I like it nonetheless. 

Thank you for listening, and thank you for the feedback. If the judges decline my submission, I will incorporate your suggestion for a future revision.

Jazzy NYC is one of my earliest VGM favorites - and I feel like you did it one cool, cool brand of justice. The guitar-string combo was a perfect way to kick off the song, and I love the use of sirens for that bit of environmental ambience.

@Liontamer Salutations! It has been two months since my initial submission, and I've seen nothing on the Judges Panel, received no e-mail follow up, nor seen my remix posted to the site. May I please have an update about where my remix stands? Thank you for your time.

This is pretty awesome!

The detail you put into this is truly amazing on all levels.

 

I haven't heard anything from my submissions in quite a while as well. I too, haven't uploaded in a while to improve myself.

 

That said, really hope your submission gets picked. =)
