Hey! I'm back... with a remix of Hero Quest for Amiga

Those familiar with my previous remixes of C64-songs available at RKO know that I haven't made an Amiga remix yet... until now, even though you COULD say it's a C64 remix too since the particular game was available for that computer too (not my fault they omitted just this tune when converting the g...

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

I really don't see why people have such a downer on "remakes" though: what's wrong with keeping the soul but enhancing the loveliness, eh? Sorry if I might have been misunderstood. I don't have anything against remakes. It's just that in the Tetris case, there only existed remakes. No remixes. That...

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

Hi Totta! GREAT Remix ! I love it ... I am a big fan of JMJ and Tetris is my favorite C64 tune... as you said - it is hard to remix and I think this is the first remix that does the tune justice! I just wish one thing - it would be longer... doesn't need to be 25 minutes, but 10-15 with some other ...

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

Lovely arrangement, very nicely done :) For me however, Tetris is one of these untouchable masterpieces in its original form, and no remix has yet managed to capture the feeling of the original track - thats just my opinion though! Mine too. Tetris is a masterpiece and is at it's best as it is. How...

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

Anyone heard the original bassdrum sample in my remix then?
I just had to include some kind of homage to the original somewhere ;-)

Re: Thoughts on this remix of "Resolution.sid"?

A small suggestion, since you are going to brush it up anyway. Give it a minute to think about changing the lead sound over time in the song. As it is now, there's no difference in the sound picture in the beginning and the end. I have found that a song gets more interesting to listen to if there ar...

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

After some more tweaking and twiddling of the swisches and swosches (and sometimes swasches), I've now uploaded the finished tune to the same address and posted it on RKO too. Hopefully someone besides me will like it too.

Re: Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

One day I must hunt Beben down and ask him how the Tetris song really came about. Did he begin with the strange rythm track and just improvised the rest or did he set out to create something different using deliberately rare rythms? I think my "conversion" to 6/4 became rather good anyway, all thing...

Marriage in Heaven - Tetris meets her man

As you are all aware of, Tetris is a really hard song to cover. Not only is Wally Beben's amazing song 25 minutes long but it also uses a rythm that is out of this world, making all attempts to remix it to sound more like a remake than a remix. But there are also so much talent in the song. Wally re...

Re: TDK chiptunes are back!

Hi Madfiddler. Just wanted to say that I find it very amusing that you have created a chiptune song called "Real or Fake" when there's a swedish pop band called Robot who has made the song "Fake or Real" using the SID-station. You might wanna listen to it? I think both your song and theirs are great...

Re: How do YOU make your music?

It's kindof strange. When I make my own original music, I mostly begin with an idea about what kind of song I will make. Then, I work on the arrengements and while doing it, some kind of melody and strategy always pops up in my head by itself and allows itself to be inserted in the song. I almost al...

The Mansion - Last Ninja II

(Already posted a few days ago in the WIP-forum) Yes, I know that there are several remixes already of this song out there already but there's always room for yet another good remix. So here it is. Created with ReNoise and using mostly VSTi from Nexus, Vanguard, Massive and Crystal even though there...

My second remix: The Mansion

Yes, I know. The Mansion (Last Ninja II) has been covered more times than I have toes on my feet but I still felt I wanted to give it a go. Since RKO is on holidays for the summer, you can listen to it here instead. http://www.tottalmedia.se/music/themansion.mp3 My main goal was to create a differen...

What's up with RKO?

No new approved remixes for three weeks and 8 new tunes in the queue for days.

Is Kwed fed up and needs assistance or anything?
