Sloprano Drift

There are certain times during the year where it becomes necessary to make something. Today is such a day. A day where kings are fools and fools are kings. A day where brown is the new black. A day to flush down all that doesn’t belong from your system.

And that is what today’s song is all about. I present: Sloprano Drift.

Sloprano Drift (38033 downloads )

This fast track to brown town is a remix of Sloprano from Conker’s Bad Fur Day. After Technoprano and Dirty Business, this marks the third time the song has appeared in a mix – although this is the first time it actually features vocals.

The vocals are by yours truly – although I had to adjust them quite a bit, because I couldn’t get the notes right even slightly. But that’s alright, because now you get some techy robo vocals. It was hell to mix them in though.

As usual, there’s a video to go along with the song. I tried out a different format this time, trying to make it look similar to how OC ReMix presents songs nowadays:

And that’s your April Fools treat for the year, I hoped you liked it 😉

In other news, I’ve been following my wish of making a video game, which is part of the reason for the recent radio silence (the other part is me being lazy and playing video games instead). I’m still learning and figuring out how things work, so it will still be a long time until I’m ready to show anything though. However, I am determined to get it done eventually – and a video game needs some fancy music too, so there will be a soundtrack to go along with it by yours truly.

I’m not sure yet how I’ll go about releasing the music before the game is finished, so don’t expect anything anytime soon – but there might be some sneak peeks as the release draws closer 😉

As for other videos, there will likely be more radio silence ahead, in the absolute worst case until Halloween, but who knows – there might be one or two videos here and there before we get to our favorite time of the year. Either way, I’d be happy to see you around next time as well! 🙂

Night Drive

Hey, it’s been a good while without any updates, but Halloween is a good time to give some. Turns out I’m still alive and kicking, I’ve just been looking into other things besides music lately, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t gonna be new songs – in fact, I have one here right now: 2023’s Halloween Mix, Night Drive!

Night Drive is a Eurobeat-inspired take on Diddy Kong Racing‘s Haunted Woods, which I already featured several times in past Halloween Mixes. It also includes just a little bit of Sturm’s Theme (Advance Wars) for good measure.

And here’s the video, I didn’t really change anything to the format, but you get some bouncy Wizpigs at least:

And with that, Halloween is saved! …Right?

No idea when the next song is gonna come up and what it’ll be, but keep your eyes peeled, I guess! Also if you’re into the spooks, you can check out my Halloween playlist featuring all of the past Halloween Mixes, including this one!

Happy Halloween!

Schedule update

Hey everyone, despite the stress at work I’m still alive and kicking! I’ve been doing some thinking about my music and wanted to share a little big update on how things are gonna go from now on.

Let me start by saying: I’ve made a LOT of remixes and medleys in the last few years and honestly, I feel it got kinda stale – a lot of my more recent songs feel uninspired, lack creativity and they all fit in the same pattern.

So I decided to slow down my schedule considerably, take a few steps back, watch some tutorials and learn how to do basic parts of song writing (which I never properly learned) and try out different styles.

My goal from here on out will be to make more original songs, but also to make remixes in different styles that I can be truly proud of. It will be a journey, but I sincerely hope it will pay off in the end.

Thank you for all of your continued support! I want to specifically thank all of those who commented on a related post on this topic I made on my YouTube channel, supporting me and wishing me the best – thank you so much for that, I’ll try to make something truly worth listening to!
