How do you make Boss remixes

Recommended Posts

I'm an Electronic musician and I'm at least decent at ambient music.  How would one go about taking an ambient theme (stage or character theme presumably) and remixing it into a boss theme? You know like Donkey Kong 64 did for its soundtrack. I've already searched the internet for tips but didn't find much at all. 

Here's where I got the idea from.

Someone else's example.

This might be late, but something I would do is add more energy to the song to convey the type of feeling the boss conveys. If you want a frantic theme or an energetic theme, increase the tempo/pulse and re-harmonize it accordingly. If you want a menacing or ominous theme, slowing the track down and adding a more spaced out pulse should do the trick. I hope this helps at least a little bit.
