This is my remix of the labyrith zone from sonic the hedgehog 1 for the sega genesis

US2K Review: The introduction begins with a happy scale based on the later melody. This line is played mid to upper octave on a delayed bass instrument. It continues until a snare fill and a short break of no instruments, with the delay reflections filling a split second gap. Shortly after the delayed bass plays a hook-line melody which is initially catchy, and is accompanied with a syncopated slightly swinging bass drum and snare pattern you would normally hear in a funk or hip hop production, and a lower octave slower bass-line. This section of music, which I will refer to as theme 1, goes on for roughly 26 seconds. Shortly after that point there is a short "answer melody" to the earlier hook then a new musical idea based on theme 1. There is a combination of strings and a variation on the mid octave bass line lead hook from earlier which sounds fairly movie-score/computer game music orientated, and a likeable slightly sped up drum pattern. This section, which I will refer to as theme 2 for further references, continues for a similar amount of time as theme 1. The bass-line has interesting little fills and variations, as do the strings play a nice melody. One minute 51 seconds into the mix a rising scale on the string and a drum roll is used to end theme 2 and re-introduce theme 1 which plays until the 1 minute 36 second position. After which a conclusion is formed by a repeat of theme 2 until an abrupt conclusion after 2 minutes 7 seconds on a drum roll.

To sum things up the artist has faithfully recreated the music and improved it significantly sound quality wise with better instruments, and has he said himself more bass. The standard verse chorus structure is adequate, as is the use of snare fills and melodic variations but that was true for the original also. Now my criticisms, I appreciate the work gone into producing this mix but it is not really different enough to the original to be classed as a remix, a cover is the closest classification I can think of. My first question is why was no thought into changing its genre considered? one of the best computer game music re-works on this website was the Tetris dance mix, but hip hop Sonic would have been equally enjoyable. Also why with such a choice of instruments is the lead so similar to the bass line?

My main problem with reviewing the mix is that normally I have various parameters in my mind such as originality, production, structure, imagination and creativity, ingenuity in producing a catchy melody line, foot tap factor. Unfortunately with film score or computer game style music as it is less likely to make my foot tap, a high score can only result from the originality, creativity imagination factors, but a cover of a film or game sound-track means these scores are weak. What factors are left? Well mastering, mixing, musical knowledge, sound engineering and production. This mix scores 10 out of 10 for these factors. There is a faithful re-creation of the original musical themes, a skilful change in drum pattern for verse and chorus, and the use of mastering effects such as reverb, equalisation and delay are of a faultless standard. So this is the final average calculation I have used to score your mix (Creativity=4 + Catchiness=6 + Production+Sound Engineering=10 + Mixing=9 + Foot Tap Factor=4) all divided by 5 which is of course 6.6 which I will round up to 7. I am aware the artist has made a great effort and achievement in the sound engineering of this mix, because the original had far poorer sound quality and instrument clarity. Unfortunately there is little else to evaluate it with due the weakness in doing something creative with the original musical themes. Even a different musical arrangement, or extra percussion for the conclusion would have improved its score.

If anyone has an intent to submit a "remix" of a nature which is so close to a commercial original I may decide to decline it as it may even risk copyright infringement and put my music site at risk from closure so please think before submission. This kind of project is for personal achievement, which it is, because the artist has proven great skill in music re-mastering, however as much as I do not want to turn music away from my site this type of work could be rejected. I suggest everyone has a listen and makes their comments though please.

Nige m8 , Phsycotic track for you to ponder

US2K Review: The introduction to this mix begins with a duet of delayed lead playing a melody line and accompanying synth that together present the scale concept which the rest of the mix will be based on later. A whoosh sound effect keeps interest and announces a change soon to take place. The bass drum playing a four on the floor with a fill and an occasional vox sample saying something like 'He' s online’; enter the arrangement together to create a nice drive to the mix. This theme continues until 36 seconds into the mix after which point a whoosh introduces another lower octave synth playing slower notes that fit harmonically to the existing arrangement. The mix continues this way with a few additional subtle train whistle sound effects to maintain the listeners interest up until the one minute 15 second mark. At this point the drum pattern leaves the mix so that a bridge can form from the vocal returning with an array of accompanying sound effects. These include the train sound effect and what sounds like a wartime or James Bond alert sound.

This bridge section ends with either a clever concealed instrument change or morph or an effect on the lead that changes its tonal sound to have a shorter sustain and a more raspy or acid click sound. This new sound has been treated with echo or delay, which is used to fill a gap after a sudden stop before the bass drum returns to the mix. This newer more acid like instrument sound continues to play a very catchy rhythmic lead and various siren sounds drift through the mix making everything far more danceable and exciting. After a short drop of the drums, between the 1 minute 44 and 2-minute mark, there are some intentional melody variations that prepare the listener for a much-needed change in my opinion. This change is the addition of a hi hat and a clap or snare and the melody line becoming slowly more steady forming the foundations of a hook line which is not reached until the three minute twelve position in the mix, when a higher octave organ synth joins the musical arrangement. The new synth plays a very danceable riff which answers the notes played by the rest of the already existing arrangement. After this point the mix gets catchier and catchier to the point of addictive to listen to. Even the crazy twists and turns and sudden unexpected drum breaks that are in this finale sound better than the earlier part of the mix. The snare even plays a more interesting pattern at this point with fills or rolls every eight bars. The general feel of the rest of the mix until the 5 minute 11 seconds position remains this fun despite a few subtle lead line note variations. After 5 minute 12 seconds the mix plays a slower musical melody theme and drum pattern consisting solely of a bass drum again just to form a suitable conclusion. The mix finally finishes with delay from the original lead line.

My final conclusions about this techno mix is that is very intelligently structured. The use of variation and cymbals, effects etc. to indicate changes in the mix are as usual with Max Motion to precision. The equalisation, delay, stereo positioning of instruments and after production mastering techniques are implemented with great skill. What really makes this mix really so good is the use of the vox, and the catchy lead lines. For my final review score for this mix is 9 out of 10. I recommend everyone has a listen. Especially tech/trance fans.

Here's another late 2010 track i knocked up over a bowl of cereal...lol ( i wish !)

US2K Review: The mix begins with sound effects and an immediately catchy hook (main hook 1) melody on synth bass sound of some type. Also from the very start of the mix a driving four on the floor bass drum with extra fill hits. At the 12 second position in the mix the bass drum leaves the mix for a split second. The bass sound plays an answer to the hook melody before the bass drum returns, and there is yet another variation of the hook line. The mix continues this way until the 36-second mark, before another short drop of the bass drum pattern. Then a bass drum fill and sound effects announce the return of the original hook this time accompanied, harmonised and answered by a higher octave synth melody forming what I will call main hook 2. Shortly after the bass drum groove returns with a hi-hat and a snare accenting every second beat. The foot just help tapping at this point; everything just gets better and more danceable. At around the 1 minute 14 second position after some different sound effects including a bell, there is a variation melody to answer the hook for a short whilst. Even this theme keeps the foot tapping, until thirty seconds later main hook 2 returns but this time with a steady flow of fun improvised accompaniment melody lines. This is brilliant like a 'lead guitarist' letting rip in a rock song, I wonder how much is live key-board play over-dubs and how much is step sequenced? At around the two-minute twenty-seven position some of the instruments leave the mix before a middle 8/bridge section. For this the bass drum leaves the mix and a less "happy" variation of main hook 2 plays for a short whilst with a new synth instrument. This bridge ends around the 2 minute 53 second position, at which point the new instrument is joined one of the original hook lines and the fun improvisation melodies return. The mix then continues this way until it is cleanly faded out around the 4 minute 15 second position.

To summarise this mix is very well structured and has some really fun and catchy hook melodies and improvisations. The use of variations and drum fills or other sound effects to announce these changes demonstrates a high level of musical skill. The general production is excellent and mastering effects such as reverb, delay and equalisation etc. are expertly applied. To some it up this is a brilliant hybrid techno electro dance mix that at rate with 10 out of 10 and suggest that everyone who enjoys dance or electro music has a listen.

Produced in FL 9

US2K Review: This begins immediately with a very fast scale played on what sounds like a toy piano, bass line and rather tinny sounding drum pattern, including what sounds like bontempi organ percussion sounds. It is an accurate swing drum and bass pattern albeit implemented with a strange drum kit. These elements together form a riff or 5 bar hook which is used for a basis of the rest of the composition. There are two repeats of this pattern separated with a very short bridge of a piano scale used as a fill. After this there is another bridge in the form of a different bass line and percussion, this time just snare and what sounds like a coconut or bongo. After about 7 seconds the piano returns playing different scales. After a short gap of silence, which I am not sure works or not although with such a maverick composition it is difficult to tell, the toy piano scale and tinny drum and bass pattern returns. After a very short pause on a snare drum, there is a return to a section of just bass and drums only. This time a better swing drum pattern is used including a crash after every 8 snare hits. The bass does a solo rumble for a whilst before the hook from the beginning of the mix makes a return, then there is fill on the bongo percussion, before a reduced arrangement of bass and snare plays and then a piano fill and snare roll introduces a conclusion on what sounds like a dub step bass line coconut/bongo, and two consecutive snares play a the role of what a bass drum normally does in a 4 on the floor dance rhythm. The final ending is a well-executed finish on bass and what sounds definitely like a real drummer playing a finish on snares and cymbals. There is no evidence of any attempt to properly master or master the mix in anyway. If it were not for the fact there are definitely sequenced sections I would think it were a live jam session. I am quite fascinated by this very unusual jazz inspired mix but I am certain it has no wide appeal. To assess it as a piece of art or a very exclusive ring tone or film jingle my score is 8 out of 10, but as anything else I am afraid 6 out of 10 is the highest I could go. From listening to the mix the artist definitely has a lot of skill so I wonder what made them make this.

Here's another one for you , gotta keep ya busy Nige m8.

US2K Review: This mix begins fairly minimal with a mixture of a fairly bleepy lead and trance synth sound at the lower frequency end. There is also an additional synthesiser playing stabs to answer the other melodies and add variations and character to the mix (theme 1). There is an intentionally uncertain bass drum pattern with fills to accompany this introduction. Towards the minute position in the mix these synth slowly become more steady and harmonic, forming a faster catchy melody hook (theme 2). After the minute when a solid hook exists a four on the floor bass drum and hi hat enter the mix. This theme continues until the 1 minute 40 mark after which a whoosh sound introduces a middle 8 bridge, where the entire drum pattern leaves the mix, where a variation of theme 2 is played before at the two minute mark the bass drum returns to the mix. A new musical idea is played based on theme 2 that is slowly changed into a new catchy melody line, varying leads and arrangements changing. Distinct changes include a faster acid synth line on the panned right of the mix.

Progressing to the two minute 48 second a driving bass drum pattern and hi hats is now in the mix. At this point some abstract possibly filter treated high frequency percussion on the left-centre of the stereo has also been added. My foot was tapping but the slower conclusion came in too soon when I was enjoying myself. There is nothing wrong with this conclusion melody in itself, as it is a sophisticated variation of earlier musical ideas. Even the final finish on the simpler musical arrangement leading to a delay treated higher octave scale, which acts as a drum roll is very clever.

The weaknesses with this mix is twice the listener has been happy with a catchy foot tapping section when a change took place too quickly. It could be intentional and experimental but in my opinion it has caused a weakness in structure and flow. Also the first minute of the mix may not be very intresting to some. Other than that this mix demonstrates great musical talent. The use of cymbals, sound effects etc. to announce changes is very intelligent. Also the use of equalisation, delay, reverb and other production mastering techniques demonstrates great skill. At this occasion, perhaps due to hearing all the more recent great music the score of this mix is going down to 7 out of 10 from the provisional of 8.

My conclusion This is not one of Max' s better mixes, but it is worth a listen by techno lovers if they are in the right frame of mind for something a bit different.

DBAReview: this song is a bit weird.. The first part(before break) doesnt fit with the break and pads.. Also the mixing is not that good in some places. The melodys and pads are nice and there is a good use of fx. perc can better and needs more variation. I have mixed feelings about this song. Needs a rework in my eyes because it has great potential for a good trancer! For now 6,5/10

US2K Review: This excellent track appears to be an adaption of "Insane Life". This one is not going to be easy, it never would be for a promoter to review an already signed artist. It tends to tempt bias a little but here goes.

The introduction of the mix begins with a reverse cymbal and a very trancey synth bass line. After 11 seconds a driving rhythm enters the mix. This is a very fast 4 on the floor, the bass drum accented on every second beat with a high-pitched snare or clap, and a hat on the half beat. This groove is joined by a synth line that is obviously playing notes that do not directly harmonise the bass line. I detect discords, possibly diminished, augmented chords or notes from chromatic scales.

At the 23 second mark along with sweep, and a drum roll this lack of harmony mentioned earlier is exaggerated to a point of where the mix almost goes out of tune. It amazingly works so well, simulating an orchestral crash or intentional key change pivot on a discord. It is either such lucky accident maybe found messing around with vinyl or real-time sample experimentation, or total genius. Anyway after this musical trickery the listener is prepared for a sophisticated audio journey.

The mix over a few drops of the drums, and atmospheric cymbal sweeps, changes into a more harmonic composition. Towards the minute 6 second mark a beautiful orchestral pad line is faded in which is left on its own to charm the listener when all other drums and instruments are dropped to form a lovely break in the mix. This continues for about 36 seconds before a series of very atmospheric fx (a bass drum hit morphing into a sweeping wind sound, and a reverse cymbal) announce a new catchy rhythmic synth piano riff which will later serve as part of the conclusion of 'Sunset Over London'. More wind and a filter swept drum roll, and a tiny effect treated pause, announce the return of the bass drum and hi hat, to join the piano riff. The track is infectiously danceable at this moment. At the two minute fifty eight second mark the bass drum drops from the mix again, and a reverse cymbal reintroduces its return with an accent snare this time. The track now fades out intentionally whilst this theme is repeated.

This mix is an edit and the full version is on sale my I can say the mix continues this way and my general assessment is that it is very professionally produced. It has an intelligent structure, and the use of breaks, fills, cymbals and other sound effects is superb. On top of these factors, the studio mixing and other mastering such as filter sweeps, reverb echo etc. make this mix highly polished and well worth a 10 out of 10 score. Well worth a listen here, and the sale version extends the musical experience for longer.
