OCR03906 - *YES* Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild "Hateno Racing"

Recommended Posts

What a cool idea to mix this theme in with Mario Kart.  I love it!  I think the production is in line with what I'd expect from any Kart source, so I have no issues with that.  I'm not a fan of fadeouts, but even that fits into context.  What a creative approach.

I love hearing Breath of the Wild arrangements; with such a minimalist soundtrack, it feels like we're getting something arranging a skeletal 8-bit theme, something able to be taken in any number of directions. 

I thought the kicks were too loud and ended up pushing down the other elements; mixed pretty hot, but I'll live. Great arrangement to adapt it for an upbeat racing theme.

Boy, I'm the judge that usually sticks up for fadeouts, but this had a very disappointing one, intentional loop point or not. :-)

That said, it's more like "Bah, let's see where else you take this," but the arrangement's creative and substantive without a doubt. Nicely done, AJ!

There's really not much I can add to this - it's such a radically different approach to the track it's hard to tell that it's the same source. It's not that the source isn't represented, but rather that the direction goes from a tranquil village to a crazy in-your-face race track from a zany video game.

Fadeout aside (which I personally think works well enough because of how it's presented, Larry be damned!) I can't think of too much to say against this, other than it leaves me wanting more. Great work!

Ditto, ditto.  I'm not sure why kart-style remixes usually fade out, but they do, so I guess it's forgivable. It's easy to recognize the source and I don't have any problems with the production (kicks sound perfectly fine to me).
