"Level 1: Triceratops Stampede"

Primary Game: Jurassic Park (Ocean , 1993, NES), music by Jonathan Dunn

Insatiable - this is some deep-down hip-hop. Deeeeeep. As in music so funky it might even make you cry and hide in a corner somewhere. But not before shaking your head, breaking your neck, movin' from side to side, and puttin' your hands up in the air like you just don't care . . . but enough cliches - one of po's heaviest and sleaziest (in a good way, my friends, in a good way) basslines makes this track, but the drums are tight, the interpretation is creative, and I think my favorite thing about it is po's impeccable sense of timing when he does solo bits - for example, come with me to around 1'20" where a koto-like timbre is doing its respective thing - would have been real easy and perhaps tempting to quantize a segment like this so the timing was perfect, but it would have ruined the groove. Instead, it lags just behind the beat, adding hella lotta flavor and showing good attention as well. Very tasty mixage - nuff said.

This took too long, ~45 seconds, to get to the good stuff in my opinion. And even then it's just an Eastern instrument (Koto?) carrying the melody over some beats. Granted, I do like the Eastern instrumentation, but that alone just isn't really enough to make this interesting. Ultimately overall, it's just o.k. There are definitely better things here on OCR but also worse things, too.

Well now, this was slightly irregular ... and, unlike my previous bowel movements ... quite a change from what I would expect on OCR.

Kudos "Yo"! :shock:

Both the starting beat and the freely repeating synth forming it are infectious (and why not? They're present every step of the way and are the last things we hear in this mix). Distinct vibes enter alongside the different players, particularly the industrial drums, fluttery effects (panned right), and Far Eastern lead (enters at 0:44, then plays a higher key at 1:16). It all feels distant like a setting sun, while at the same time old and worn like a collection of fossils. And still grooveable.

I wasn't too impressed when I heard the exposed clav for the first few seconds, but as the track built, I was feeling it a bit more. The beat is solid and the bass is excellent, but I don't think the lead is as good as it could have been.

It really sounds like the soundfield is missing something, most likely some rhymes, but as a backing track, it's pretty solid. Just needs a hook.

Well crafted, but seemingly incomplete.

I don't know whether the clav part is intentionally like that, or because this is an earlier piece of his, but po has done a lot better clav work in his more recent pieces. not bad though.

Comic Bakery, anyone?
I was randomly listening to this, and the melody instantly reminded me of Comic Bakery. Nice to see I'm not the only one who thought that.

It's not really a mere reminder; Dunn clearly cribbed part of the source tune from Comic Bakery. Good stuff on his part with that homage though.

I should have commented on this one 3 years ago when I first heard it, as this was one of those mixes that showed me there were other gems in the scene from games I'd never played. Nice work by Posu slowing this down and making it pretty chill. I wonder if he knew of the Comic Bakery connection himself. This should inadventantly appeal to fans of the Commodore scene as well.

I think I remember this track, the one in the beginning and therefore the only one I´ve actually heard. To turn this into hip-hop isn´t exactly mission impossible, but po! managed to clear it, fat jurassic style. Reminds me of the slums in FF7.

Cool description Fire...

I never played the game (well, I tried it once, and I wan't that impressed). But this is a really phat remix. Download.

This is really cool. Reminds me of someone walking through the park, having their guns ready for whatever awaits them. Like Raptors. ^_~

Yee-uh. This mix is tizz-ight. Deep bassline like DJP said, and I just love the humpty allusion. Ummmm, Download? Now.

This is sweet. Po! have made a kind of Hip-Hop-stylish remix of Jurassic Park. I can't really let go when I starts to listen to this. I remember one time, I listened to it for like 15 minutes.

I really recommend this. Come on nod your head!
