Greenhorn Funk

Kicking things up with yet another track in our remake weeks, here’s Greenhorn Funk [Garlic Edit]!

This is a remake of the song Greenhorn Funk from 2010, featuring Greenhorn Forest (Wario World). Giving that greedy dirt bag the love that he deserves~

That song is so old now, and yet it’s still pretty cool. But I wanted to see what it would sound like in 2017. So here we go:

And here’s the video:

I know I kinda promised a fancy Ganon tune, but it’s really not that interesting…at least not yet! At least I gave you a new tune, right? So we’re back in the regular schedule~

Lots of remakes lately, huh? I actually have a lot of remakes planned for this year, but I’m not sure how many of them I’ll actually make. It’s not really an easy process to make these. After all I have to fix the mixing/mastering and make it sound different enough so it has its right to exist.

As for the next thing, I have some nice ideas, but I cannot say what I’m gonna do next. You’ll have to wait and see~

The Snippet Mutants

The return of the Mutie Snippets: here’s The Snippet Mutants [Nuclear Edit]!

This is a remake of the song The Snippet Mutants from 2012, featuring Clanker’s Cavern (Banjo-Kazooie) and Nuclear Fusion (Touhou 11: Subterranean Animism).

I was never really able to get the mixing right for that one and since I was playing around with a new mastering plug-in anyway, I wanted to give it another try. This remake is much closer to what I originally wanted it to sound like. Let’s hear it:

Here’s the video:

Sorry for the delay this time, but playing with new Mastering techniques kinda takes time…also Dark Souls. Love that game~

Maybe I’ll make up for that and upload a fancy Ganon song? It’s almost April Fools material, but I still like it.

Delay of stuff

You were probably expecting a new song today (and rightly so) but I have to admit I’m not quite done yet. The song I teased last week didn’t really go very well, so I started to work on something else yesterday. That song is much closer to completion, but I still want to give it some time to grow. Let me share what I have so far:

It’s a remake of The Snippet Mutants from 2012. I was never really able to get the mixing right on that one, now I’m giving it another try. And it already sounds more like I wanted it to sound. I hope I can finish it by next Sunday, so I can fix all those things that are still bothering me.

Frequently asked questions

There are some questions that arise rather frequently. There are questions I don’t want to answer every time they’re asked.

The solution: An FAQ. I usually answer questions I get via message or contact form, but lots of comments on YouTube stay unanswered. If you are among those people who asked a question and never got a reply, maybe you’ll find your answer here.

That’s all I wanted to cover today, the next song should be ready next Sunday. Expect a remake of this song.

Xeno Nemesis

Welcome to 2017, a year full of…stuff!

And we start off the year with nothing less than a Metroid remix starring Ridley and Serris (Metroid Fusion). You might remember part of the song as VS Xeno Ridley from the animated series Super Mario: Vanishing Existence by FictionalCanvas (previously VanishingSVST), but the full song also features Weavel from Metroid Prime Hunters.

Don’t forget to watch the video as well:

And that marks the start of a year full of stuff. For the upcoming songs I’m trying out a different mastering and I don’t feel entirely comfortable with it yet. I’ll figure something out eventually.

As for 2017: expect some remakes, I feel like polishing up a few old gems this year.

Best of 2016

Once again the year is ending, so it’s the right time to look back. We usually do this with a Best of album.

It features most songs of 2016 which aren’t already on another album (like the Arch Rival songs). Monster King had to be left out because the project file got kinda screwed up, so sorry about that. All other songs have been re-rendered for maximum quality and are available on bandcamp in different formats.

Some songs have been slightly altered for the album version, let me quickly list them here:

  • Frozen Warrior: Sylux part replaced by Noxus theme. Now the mix only features the ice-related hunters.
  • Eggcellent: All but one voice-effect (‘Time for a change of pace!’, because it really fits) removed, added some hits to the Sonic 3 Boss part to make up for that.
  • Kremling Boss: Added more power to the second transition to Gangplank Galleon to make it sound as powerful as the first.
  • Time to Battle: Added some oomph to You Will Know Our Names at the end by adding backing strings.
  • Eltale Battle: Significantly reduced ear rape and unnecessary hits to make the song more enjoyable.
  • Cave of Raves: Changed lead sounds for the Yoshi’s Island Cave parts so it would mix a little bit better.
  • Night of the Skeleton: Added an extra Grunty laugh, extended the ending with an extra powerful, pitch-upped repeat of Spooky Scary Skeletons. Added some 8-bit drums during build-up organ parts for Spooky Scary Skeletons. Added more intensity to the Betus Blues part.

Now enough chitchat, here’s where you can get the album, it will be available for free for a limited amount of time (just type 0,00 when asked for the price):

And of course, here’s the video:

And that concludes 2016 for me. I wish you all a Happy New Year and I’ll see you again in 2 weeks!

Funky’s Rap-Medley

Are you ready for this year’s grand finale? Brace yourself for Funky’s Rap!

For the final mix of the Year of the Monkey I thought of something special: A DK series medley with the infamous DK Rap from Donkey Kong 64! Although I left out the intro verse and one line in Chunky’s part because they just didn’t want to fit, but other than that I think everything works rather well…I think? I don’t work much with vocals you know…

To top it off, there’s an instrumental version without the vocals as well (Funky’s Medley) for people who just enjoy the medley itself.

The medley features lots of DK tunes, at least one of them should be expected by now:

  • Funky’s Flights (Donkey Kong Country)
  • Funky The Main Monkey (Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest)
  • Bad Boss Boogie (Donkey Kong Land)
  • Candy’s Theme (Donkey Kong Jungle Climber)
  • Bad Boss Boogie (Donkey Kong Country)
  • Mining Melancholy (Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest)
  • Boss Boogie (Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble!)

Now here we go:

Funky's Rap (107 downloads)

 

Funky's Medley (93 downloads)

 

As for the videos, here’s the DK Rap version:

And here’s the instrumental version:

Next up will be (you know it) the release of this year’s Best of 2016 album. I got everything prepared for its scheduled release on December, 31st.
