    So about 2 years ago my buddy Holyxxcrapp and our friends introduced me to a website full of magical wonders beyond your wildest dreams... Video game remixes.


    that's the website, up at the top right of the window is the alphabet + #'s where you can choose your game. they have just about everything. i'm talkin anywhere from FF7 to Super Mario World. From Ocarina of Time to Double Dragon. This website is in-fucking-credible.

    Once you choose your game, click on it and a window with 4 panels come up. go to the remix tab and then choose a song. If your computer doesnt suck dick you can listen to it with the mini player. if you cant do that, go to the "download" tab and right click one of the links and select "Save link as..." (the right-click and "Save link as..." is also how you save the MP3 file to put on your itunes, WMP, Zune etc).

    Keep in mind, that not all the music on here is good. The majority of the remixes are a trance/techno/electronic feel, but some are live music, people recording words to a song for a game or a string quartet layin down some serious classical shit. However i have a playlist consisting of over 50 songs from this website that are amazing.

    Remix of "Hyrule Castle BGM"

    Ok so obviously i'm a bit of a nintendo enthusiast, sue me haha. These are merely a select few of the songs that are fan-fucking-tastic that are on this website having been remixed, mastered and taken to the next level. Some of these are fast paced, others are slow and groovy... it all depends on what you find and what you're looking for.

    Now i'm not gonna link you everything, hopefully by the time you get to the bottom of my list of links you'll have a good idea of how to navigate the site. However, i will list the rest of the songs that i find to be amazing and y'all can listen to them for yourselves. Enjoi!

    ** = song i double on my ipod playlist so i get it twice per full repeat, i.e. a fucking incredible song imo

    I'm not pushing for the site, they don't have promoters i just got done my 4th semester of music theory and since video games and music are both awesome, i figured i'd extend this gift from my ear to yours. May it serve you as i have.

    Enjoy this music like i have. It's really really good guys. I promise. (DISCLAIMER: Promise may only be good if you like techno and/or video games. Other restrictions may apply)
  2. lol no responses?? meh, it's good music i promise you lol.

    just tryin to spread the love. oh how i love this music :D

  3. some of the donkey kong country ones are sweet, try donkey kong country 2 and search for the artist protricity ( he does an awesome one, i think its called brambles in the breeze)

    and check out siamey's : tricky swamp style
  4. i check out Tricky Swamp Style like yesterday, before i read this. turns out it's one of my new favorites lol

    Brambles in the breeze is decent, but it's just too slow for me... it's good and well written, dont get me wrong but it could be better...

    Updating original post to make new additions :)
