Finally, you arrive...

Treacherous as the roads before were, nothing can prepare you for speeding through infinite space, racing past shooting stars and fiery comets; riding an elegant blur of color-- a rainbow higher than the clouds.
Careful not to get swept away amongst the celestial paint strokes the tires sweep across--because this is the last race... and everything depends on it.

My good and loyal fans, it's been quite some time. Though I haven't posted any music in over a year--jump back, hit myself--I have been hard at work, remixing and tweaking away at several projects.
Behold one of the fruits of my arduous labor ;)
Please listen and review; I always appreciate any and all feedback given. And I hope you rate it as high as the sky!! :D

So I'm getting a lot of PMs saying they love this song, but it sounds better with headphones; so if this is your first time listening, please plug in your headphones to get the levels of the piece in full!

Boy! I just love that piano!!! Do you play Alisa?

This was such a nice track, I'm actually not very familliar with the original, but since it is from Mario Kart I bet it was a really fast paced beat, but I really like the speed on this one, its so calm and beautiful, and OMG that piano!! Awesome :D

Great work!

Hope we will be collaborating again soon ^^

Thanks! It's great to hear from you!
Yeah, I play; self-taught, though, so I'm not FANTASTIC or anything ^_^

And here I thought you had all but vanished! Then I take a gander and find this now sitting around.

This is a wonderful remix. VERY wonderful. And it's actually a remix, not just a cover! Can't tell you how many times I see "THIS IS A REMIX" and it's a bloody cover!

The tone is rather upbeat and happy, as the original track is, with a hint of a "go for it!" vibe. I find myself unable to control myself as my head bobs to the beat, feeling a natural, relaxing groove to it. It's the kind of song I'd want to listen to while chilling or perhaps writing. That in itself makes it awesome. Your choice of instrumentation and the general styling make it better.

That and this is my favorite Rainbow Road track. Huzzah!

I know! It's been so long since I've had a complete piece to show you guys!

Thanks for all your support.

Same great quality I've come to expect from you.

I can tell you put a lot of work into it. I like the choice of instruments. I especially like your use of the piano. I feel like it takes a good bit to really get going, though. That, and it never gets that much momentum to it. Maybe you were going for a relaxing feel. Still, I feel like Rainbow Road just has a more energetic feel to it. Still, this is very good. All in all, it's one of my favorite if not my absolute favorite Rainbow Road remix. Keep up the great work. I'm looking forward to any future works your come out with!

When I first started this piece, it was me at my piano kind of messing around with the rhythms and harmonies, and once I got to putting the piece together on my program, it just felt right to keep it as piano! So I'm glad you liked that.
I have contemplated speeding up the piece to give it more energy, but I wanted more of an awestruck, starry sky feel, rather than a drum n' bass headbanger.
But I do see what you mean, and am always appreciative of your support, and your thoughts ^_^


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

nice piece

i like the mute kick bass in the beginning it sounded like it was gonna be a build up to a drum and bass break which would have also been cool, you gave it a good atmosphere i like the scratching you threw into the background and the stereo-izing filters. it could use some extra energy but it sounds great

Thank you for your input! :)

When I was initially working on this piece, I thought about putting in an epic drum and bass underneath, but it just felt forced, and I really liked the trance feel I was getting, so I left it be. But you and I had the same thought process ;)
