The People's Remix Competition 408

Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

TheVideoGamer was the winner of PRC406 and picked the source for this round. HoboKa posted a bonus mix, General Grunt, Silverpool64 en PlanarianHugger also participated. The difference was small, but it was again TheVideoGamer who won.

I haven't seen a Ridge Racer entrant in a long time, nor do many people actually remix the soundtrack, apart from the composers themselves (You know, the ones who made this kick-ass score?) So i'm going to rectify this, with one of my favourites in the series (Yes i said one, too many gems to ignore, in the whole franchise).

So the game is Ridge Raver Revolution, and the Track name is ...Dat Dan Day...A. As suggested in the title, it is a racing game, almost no different than say...Daytona or OutRun. The big difference being, that this is electronic dance music, and was maybe the first racing game to incorporate this style. Others were following along a hard rock/synth-pop approach. The main reason i picked this one is (Not for the title by the way. A lot of game composers do title their tracks with some ridiculous titles), because it has a awesome use of chords, and a lot of development, despite it coming from Hardcore Techno. When making the MIDI, i was really surprised to find how detailed the drums were, despite it coming from a genre known for more repetitive beats. All in all, we need some electronica in our lives, so i hope you guys will do wonders with this one. 

Note: I only did the instrumental, i did not include any voices. You might have to manually add them in yourself. Sorry, but that's how it is...

And of course, my own custom MIDI:

Great to see some Ridge Racer in there. Props to whoever comes through this round, cause hardcore is not an easy genre to arrange.

It's only a source round. If i had the chance, most of the score would be up, but i can only pick one... :P

Do what you can, the score is notorious for vocal samples, so that might be a challenge. At least it has chords and motifs. So melodic elements are ripe here.

I guess do what you can...

I changed the deadline, it is now Saturday May 23rd, 11:00 AM ThaSauce Time.

I have my bonus entry in the works. It’s taking time though because I’m a bit busy.
