I know the other thread was more in keeping with actual video game soundtracks, so it makes more sense to me to perhaps split this off into a different section. I listen to a lot of remixed video game music. No, seriously, most of my playlist consists of various remixes from OCRemix, the older VGMix, Dwelling of Duels, Famitracker covers of songs, the works. Does anyone else here love remixed music?
I'll start off with one that just popped up in my feed; it's an oldie but a goodie. Sixto Sounds made some of my favorite mixes, and this one is some epicness from Mega Man 3.
His Super Metroid epic "Relics of Chozo" was incredible. As was Dwelling of Duels' huge Super Metroid medley. I was a sponsor for Metroid Metal back in the day, also one of the older forums I was on until it kind of just completely died and everyone got old I guess. I miss some of those dudes. I loved Black Mages but I don't think that stuff has aged well, it's kind of boring to me nowadays.
I honestly don't give remixes much attention nowadays though. I get a bit more out of discovering new actual OST's instead. Keep up with 4 VGM podcasts, etc.
But if there's one artist I discovered a few years ago that completely blew my face off, it's S.S.H. Some alias for a person or possibly two in Japan that has cooked up, literally, probably a few hundred tracks of remixes from Thunder Force, to Mega Man, to Y's, to Castlevania, to Final Fantasy, to Tales, etc. The style retains the Japanese-ish melodies of the original tunes and the quality is just out of this world. It's like this person(s) is the literal continued incarnation of Techno-Soft.
Do yourself a favor and look up SSH... click on any random video... and be prepared to level up.
Double points for a virtual video game musician covering another awesome game song? Also, vocaloid warning, in case you hate that shit. I love both the original song and Miku, though, so this was like finding gold for me.
