Donkey Kong Country: Dance Remix Album

Postby Lampje4life » August 20th, 2009, 6:25 am

Introduction

This year, Dixie and I have been working on quite a few DKC Remixes.
We decided to line them up in some sort of an Album.
A few months ago I posted a preview on Newgrounds, but we are happy to announce we finished it (finally)!


Disclamer

Rare / Nintendo holds the rights of the original title names and tracks.
These Remixes may be used in any way you want, as long as you give credit to the original artists.
(That should be Lampje4life and Dixie)

F.A.Q.


'Wow, this sucks! You guys are worse than (.....)!!'

Don't waste time telling us. If you don't like our music, then leave it.


'This is good! Anything I can do for you in return?'

If you like our music, the best thing you can do is letting us know.
We don't accept money or anything, but a comment or email is highly appreciated!


'You have nothing else than just this post? No artworks?'

Nope, we don't. If you are an artist and feel like making a banner or anything, feel free to contact me!
Actually, we are still looking for someone that could help us out!


'You posted this on DKC-Atlas Forums! What about our own Project? You both are in!'

Correct, we are. However, we started our own way before we heard about the DKC-Atlas one.
The Remixes we make for the DKC-Atlas Project will be different. We don't want one mix to be part of two Projects.


'How can I contact you?'

By email: Lampje4life@hotmail.com.
That will just count for me, but if you want to reach Dixie in particular, I can forward any email to him.


Enjoy!

Sounds like you've both been real busy! I'll check it out as soon as I can - hopefully within the next 12 hours. I love DKC music tributes, so this will be a real treat. :)

Downloading now, really looking forward to this. Loved your Cranky's mix for the DKC-Atlas collab :D

Edit:
Really nice synths, sounds great. But I hate fade-outs with a passion D:
And there's only one DKC3 mix? Oh well, still a great overall assortment. I was looking for mixes that really stood out, but they pretty much all stand out in their own way, they're all great. Forest Rhythm gets really good at 1:11. I love the off-beat bass in Ice Ambiance, and the calmer part at 1:16. In Kremlin Castle I really like the bit at 1:43.

I don't like Cranky's Disco much, though :/ it sounds weirdly compressed. So does Miner's Melody..

God, this was a great album.
I was referred to this page by cfh, and good job :D

I love the general flow of the album, how it goes from trance, to hardcore house and electro for a bit, a lot more trance in the middle and towards the end switched back and forth. Kudos on the order, it made an impact on the sound for me.

My favorites were Music Lessons and Victory Dance, because of the upbeat-ness and I really liked Aqua Sphere because it was just so mellow. To me, Bramble Symph sounded like a ska song turned into techno, which is something I have yet to see. This album was really unique.

I like the effects of Froze Glacier the best in the beginning, and I think this album is a really good tribute to DKC.

K, that's all. =]

Thanks for the (positive) comments! Didn't think anyone would like it (that) much.
On second thought, this is a DKC fansite :roll:

@ Qyzbud:
Happy Listening!

@ cfh:
We tried more DKC3 mixes, but most are very hard with very little notes. The DKC3 one also was the last one we finished.
About the compression of Cranky's Disco and Miners Melody, you are right. ;)

@ xoTammie:
Thanks for the comment! I'm very glad (and Dixie will be too when he reads it) you liked it! ^^

No Disco Train? Disco Train remixes are the best. :(

I liked the Run! Rambi, Run! and Lockjaw's Saga remixes the best. I still haven't listened to them all.

Any chance of getting a better compressed version? They sound great aside from the compression, and I loved every other mix on there, so it would be nice to have!

I can't promise that.

Dixie is gone so Cranky won't be accessable for a while.
Mines is stored on my PC, but is a bit old (the .mp3 was rendered 6 months ago) and made with VST's I don't have anymore since my recent reinstall.

But never say never. Very glad to hear you like it!

Thanks for posting. I listened to all of them twice and the Lockjaws Area, Forest Rhythm and Aqua Sphere tracks were my favorites. Great work! :D

Thank you for sharing this! I have not listened to many video game soundtrack remixes before, but this album has made it clear that I should. I felt the first track opened up the whole thing in an epic fashion, and there was a wonderful sense of flow through the whole thing. I especially liked your remix of Stickerbrush Symphony. I found it to be far superior to the one on SSBB.

I liked it. I'm not much of a techno fan but that was pretty cool.

I just heard the whole thing for the first time, and can honestly say the waterfall remix is AMAZING. Really... I've had it on repeat for the... 3rd time now, I think :P

What programs did you use to create this album? I'm REALLY interested in doing something similar (albeit I don't have the time, but this type of music is generally simple to make).

My computer blocks the link. Would you be able to upload it to rapidshare, megaupload or the site you originally used?
Thanks!

I just decided to download that mirror instead of messing with newgrounds, so keep it up for Cyclone too. ;)
