Is it sad that when I read the title, I was hoping that this was a Ridley mix?  :D Still glad to hear the King is back. At first I was a little confused by timbres, kinda felt like popcorn (cause that is totally a way to describe sound). It is a good cover, very upbeat and energetic, but I felt like the leads used for the melody were a little, what's the word, shrill? Flat? I dunno how to articulate it. How about this, the leads could use a little bit more oomph. I really love the rolls in the percussion though, almost caught myself headbanging to 'em. And of course, yes, you should remake more stuff.

Sounds kinda like chiptune! Not sure if that's the accurate genre. Agreeing with Souperion, the lead instruments sometimes came off a shrill. Perhaps the bass could be bolstered a bit too, I really liked how it sounded so a little more on it may help the strong treble bits. Reeeally catchy though.

Pretty faithful little GameBoy-ifying version, and you got the rock transition down smoothly. But yes, as others have said your lead has some very shrill ringing harmonics around the :42 - 1:05 mark, and then again when the same section plays over. And then again during the next section. I'd EQ/filter that stuff out, for sure. 

 

I like the weird popcorn kettle drums a lot, haha.

 

There's a bit of strange tempo skip, or maybe a missed drum somewhere at about 2:49, as well. 

 

This is one of the most hype tracks of the mid 90's for me, so I'm glad you gave it some love, especially since I don't think the DK Land version of DKC got this song... (I might be wrong)!
