The People's Remix Competition 90

PRCv4-12

Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition! Star Fox 64 was our choice of game for PRC89, but not even the entries were just as quantified (is that a word?) as the amount of times the phrase "Do a Barrel Roll" was exclaimed in the game. Nonetheless, Villainelle pulled through as the competition's winner with her first foray into FL; hopefully we'll see her keep using whatever tools she has to polish up her skills in the coming months.

For PRC90, we're heading all the way to the mid 1980s via a game that had its origins on the Apple Macintosh and later transferred to the NES several years later. This competition, we're playing detective!

The first time I played this I was 8 or 9 years old, and afterward had plenty of nightmares about alligators in the sewers to punish my curiosity. Being from Chicago, I thought it was very cool that the game took place there back in the swingin', late Capone era, pinstripe-suit and fedora-wearing gangsta 1940's. What was most memorable about the game, though, was the great jazz/blues soundtrack. This song is the first one you hear when you start a new game and wake up with amnesia in a men's room stall.

It's a fairly basic jazz tune that should give wide opportunity for remixers to improv over and reinterpet.

Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True - Mens' Room Stall

MIDI | MP3 | NSF (track 2)

It's been a long time since we had chiptunes in this PRC. I wonder what we can make of this one...?

GOOD LUCK!

The quality of this source tune amazes me...

I'm a sucker for catchy melodies and interesting chord progressions...but I don't know what to do with this, we'll see.

I definitely don't hate it. Also, the work tests I was using as an excuse for a lack of involvement for the last month or so are done (and was worth it, I got a raise) so maybe I'll turn out for this one.

Oh, and if I do, my singing is nearly guaranteed.

Well, this is getting tedious. We have eight hours left and not a single entry. I say we get to push people as much as possible but other than that, odds are we might be heading for time extension territory again.

Sorry Rexy. I was initially going to spend a lot of time on a PRC entry, but I'm now working on what will hopefully be my first remix to make it to the OCR site.

I made a wip yesterday, about 3 minutes long, but.. I didn't like it too much so I don't think I'll finish it.

I'll submit it later when i get home.

(and this time I wasn't lazy, I just haven't mixed anything in the past 2 weeks cuz I had no free time)

EDIT:Sadorf is a good man when he's not plotting to murder you in your sleep.

Still at least it's better than nothing. Do you want it to be shown as a voteable entry though? I just want to make sure before we jump ahead.

Nonetheless I got an entry down. I wasn't planning on entering due to having a lot of stuff to do by Monday morning, but never mind that.

Aww, I'll join in. I'm afraid all I have time for is an improvised performance on my keyboard, and I'm not exactly what one would call "good" at it... But I need to start PRC again and now's as good a time as any. Here it is:

Impromptu For Toilet

Last place, here I come!
