Thanks for the quick review. The instrumentation was done with Kontakt 4 in Pro Tools. I know I overshadowed the vocals a bit because I see them as an other instrument, I didn't want to put them up front. Mabe I should've listened to the original song more, I didn't really listen to it.. at all. Thanks again ! :)

The Time Crisis remix is undeniable extremely well done, but I dont get a connection between music and vocals. They dont really fit right. Its almost not a remix at all, its more like an acapella over an instrumental indie pop track. Get me?

Vinh-Tage on the other hand is growing for every listen, love the organs.

Part of the reason why I didn't submit a remix is because I like to match drums and synth/samples with the vocals, at least the tempo of it. I couldn't at all catch his tempo, despite the fact that it was at 141. I put down a beat, much like LEIF did, and it just wasn't working for me.

I don't really like the original song besides the beat. I didn't really listen to 2mex before this, but I found out with this that I really don't like his shit.

I think LEIF's is the best, definitely. But even with that fucking outrageously bombastic beat, I could only get through the entire song once, a second or third listen was hard. I don't think 2mex sounds good at that fast of pace, which is fucking hard to do anyway.

The good that came out of this was that I started two loud-ass banger beats. Which is always nice to give out.

The 2 main reasons I DID enter this contest was 2mex, a long time favorite and the tempo. 141 bpm gives you plenty room to do pretty much whatever with the beat, and it makes it easier to move away from the more classic hiphop sound that I mainly listen to..

Combination 141 + 2mex made it impossible to ignore this.

Oh absolutely. I love fast tempo stuff. It gives you a lot of freedom to make wily ass beats, which is fine. But mine ears cringe and demand justice when I layer 2mex's vocals over them. I thought it was just my shit his vocals clashed with, but there were some excellent beats that people did with this, and no matter what his vocals clashed with the beat.

Barbaric merits still gets my vote. The production goes great with the song/delivery and bangs. I like it a lot better than the original even.

Can I say.. I'm a little mad ?? I don't wanna sound too mad here but I worked really hard on my remix wich I sent friday night (from canada) and it never showed anywhere, so I couldn't get any vote. I had friends who were waiting to hear it.

I'd like to know if you at least got it ?? And why did it never show anywhere ? My remix wasn't standard.. it was very orchestral.. was that a bad thing ? please.. I'm just confused and angry for working so hard on something that.. pretty much seems to have never existed.

Sorry if my english is weird, I'm french.


I understand you are French and all, but you obviously didn't read what I took the time to write. You are "mad"? Don't be. Your remix isn't on beat. It's very offbeat. You plopped the vocals on the beat in the wrong place and I'm not even sure if any of it is at the right tempo considering how sloppy the vocals sound throughout the entire remix.

This is why your remix was not included in the final round.

Wow I was not expecting that, I thought it sounded good.. but I also think your work sounds 100 times better so.. I'll keep on reworking it and try to get it on beat. For fun.

Also sorry about making a scene.. it wasn't my intentions really.. Bad day, my car broke down and all.. so sorry !! Thanks for taking the time to answer, I love your work !

Can we still vote? I think I liked dynamo's the best, actually. It was a very well made remix. But all those remixes that made it into the final are really good.

EDIT: Ahh fuck it, I don't use facebook. Looks like I won't be voting after all. :(
