Mainly for announcements of new uploads on YouTube or elsewhere. Might also be used for the release of exclusive songs.

A Hunter’s Journey

Usually I’m no good with timing, but I THINK this one came out just right. The Metroid II Remake for the Nintendo 3DS is coming out this Friday, so we celebrate with the Metroid medley A Hunter’s Journey~

It’s STILL not the Soulless Enemies remake I promised, but instead a new song (that remake will come eventually though). It features mainly my favorite area tunes plus the main overworld theme from Metroid II: Return of Samus, Surface of SR388. The other themes are: Brinstar Vegetation Area, Lower Norfair (both Super Metroid), Tallon IV Overworld 2 (Metroid Prime) and a bit of the Echoes Main Theme (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, you know I love that tune~).

I hope this will get you in the right mood!

So, how much longer until the Halloween special? …uh, it’s still September…well, time to think of something then! I heard it was Hatsune Miku’s birthday a few days ago, maybe…idk. Or maybe the Soulless Enemies remake while everyone is still in a Metroid mood? Difficult decisions!

Thousand Eyes Disciple

Still no Metroid! What is this insanity! Here’s some backstory:

I finally finished all of my Wii U games and was able to get my Switch ready (maybe you’ve read about that in the last few lines on the last upload?). Since then I’ve been absorbed in playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lately and dang, there’s so much to see! The only thing that left me a little disappointed so far was the absence of any memorable tunes, aside from some familiar re-appearances like Epona’s Song. I guess the background music is supposed to not distract you from your adventure…but that kinda worked for Wind Waker, that game had lots of memorable songs. But I haven’t nearly seen everything, so I’ll not give up hope just yet!

Anyway, enough Zelda. Now that you know the background, this song is something I threw together rather quickly, although I had the idea itself a good while ago. The Darkness part of Ultimate Elemental Being featured Miracle Matter and , and I wanted to see if I could turn that into its own song. Turns out I can – it was actually quite a lot of fun working on this and we haven’t had a Disciple-like song in ages anyway, so I hope you like the result too!

The mix itself is rather uncertain what it is. It’s kind of dark, epic and upbeat at the same time. It works for me – but what about you?

Time for the video, I hope that Kirby isn’t too distracting:

 

With that out of the way, I’ll head back to exploring. Maybe we can finally get some Metroid next time~

Sick Beats

First off, I know I hinted at some Metroid last time – turns out that might take a little longer than expected, but we’ll get to that eventually! Instead, have some Sick Beats!

For long-time fans (and I mean REAAAAALLY long-time) this should be a nostalgia blast, since this is actually a remake of one of my songs from 2011 You Look Sick, Mate. Let me take away that this new version is not arguably better in my opinion, I just wanted to update the song a bit while not straying too far from the original version.

In fact, I wasn’t feeling to motivated lately, so I wasn’t able to realize the remake of Soulless Enemies I promised, although I’ve started to work on it. I want to add some things to it, change some things, but I wasn’t really in the mood to do so…

Anyway, since I didn’t want to leave you hanging I worked on this little thing instead. Fun fact: I made this when I felt sick back in 2011, now I remake the song when I’m feeling a bit under the weather. Experience the healing properties of a Dr. Mario remix ;3

So…facts! The song is a mix of both of the most popular Dr. Mario tunes, Fever and Chill, but it also features a bit of the Super Mario Bros. Ground Theme. Compared to the original version, mainly the mixing is different, but I also tried to add some things, a little more variety, but don’t expect too much…

Here’s the video – don’t forget to comment there, I’m still reading all the comments I’m getting. In fact, leave a comment saying ‘Sick beats, dude!’ (without quotation marks) after you read this:

 

Alright, now Imma go back to finishing those unfinished games on my Wii U so I can finally unpack my Switch…

Meta Battle

Ready for the finale? Prepare yourself for the 5th and final song of Sounds Alike Vol.1:

Metroid Gaiden – Meta Battle

Most impressive logo yet, right? Anyway, I’ve been waiting for this mix. Meta Knight meets Ridley – with a certain ninja joining in as well. To be exact, we have Ridley’s Theme, Meta Knight Battle Theme, Crash (Ninja Gaiden Sigma) and Omega Ridley (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption).

You’d expect an epic mix and that’s just what you get. After the Omega Ridley part at about halfway through the mix it picks up the pace and gets even faster. What an intense battle that must be…

And here’s the video:

And. That’s. It! Certainly a worthy finale for Vol.1 of this little series, right? In any case, I’m off to prepare the album now. If everything goes as planned, the album will release next Sunday. And then I’ll have to think about what comes next! See you then~

Natural Beat Robot

Are you ready for the fourth entry of Sounds Alike? No? Yes? It doesn’t matter, here we go:Shin Megami Tensei: Mega Man Moonwalker – Natural Beat Robot

That logo turned out to be such a mess. But there’s a good reason for that: we’ve got 4 different themes this time! Most of them have at least one very similar sounding part. We’ve got the Boss Theme from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, Natural Killer Cyborg from Mother 3, Wily Stage 1 from Mega Man 2 and Michael Jackson’s Beat It.

Long-time fans probably remember Electrocuted, which already included 2 of those themes. This is certainly a step up though. I’m especially happy that I was able to include the Devil Summoner Boss Theme there. I like the tune, so I tried to start sequencing it to make a remix of it. Sadly, that didn’t really go so well…but that doesn’t matter now, since I was able to include my favorite part in a song after all!

Here are some visuals for you:

Only one more to go! The finale is something I wanted to do for a while now. I don’t think it’s gonna be easy, but as usual I’ll try my best! I think you’ll appreciate it. We’ll see in two weeks!

Bad Boss Plateau

If you’ve been following my stuff for a good while now, you must have seen this entry coming from at least 10 miles away. Here’s the third entry of Sounds Alike:

Blast Kongs – Bad Boss Plateau

Some years ago, I made a song called Blast Kong. It was the same combination of songs, but it sounds completely different from what you’re about to hear. The combination I’m talking about is Bad Boss Boogie from Donkey Kong Land and Jade Plateau (Skerries) from Blast Corps.

Now here’s the thing: this is kind of an exception for this series. Not only do they sound very similar, they were also composed by the same guy, so they’re…essentially the same song? Well – one being a boss theme and the other being a racing track with a mini game kind of feel – I’d say they are at least quite different versions of the same tune.

Another thing to note is that I couldn’t resist to add some robotic sounding DK Rap parts as well. It kind of fits if you think “Kongs” are the machines the corporation uses to destroy stuff. Or the ones piloting the machines. Whatever works! BUT don’t worry, there’s of course an instrumental version as well! So here we go:

And here’s the video, note that I didn’t bother to make a video for the instrumental version this time:

In the meantime I got another set of suggestions, I’d say we’re definitely set for a Sounds Alike Vol. 2. VG Arch Rivals isn’t done yet either and other ideas also already crossed my mind…then again, making more than one album per year is kinda tiring. Well, I’d say there’s still enough ideas in my mind for years to come!

Lunatic Stage 2

Are you ready for the second entry in Sounds Alike? Some of you certainly have seen this coming, but here’s…

Touhou X5 – Lunatic Stage 2 ~ Invisible Zero Virus

I think I’ve done this 2 or 3 times before, but it just had to come back one more time for Sounds Alike. Zero Virus Stage 2 (Mega Man X5) meets Lunatic Eyes ~ Invisible Full Moon (Touhou 8: Imperishable Night).

Here’s the video:

Thanks for your suggestions for similar tunes so far! A sequel to this project is getting more and more likely. Keep ’em coming!
