Here we have a theme made for the opening of a very big annual event that happens every year at my school. This year's event has the theme "Superheroes".

Note that this is remixing the Superman theme. I've added some new stuff but some of the melodies are from the original Superman theme. I was told to simply grab that theme and turn it into Hip-Hop, so that's what I did.

This uses Toxic Biohazard for the saw lead, 3xOsc for the bass, drums from Vengeance Essential House and random free samples on the internet, and East/West Symphonic Orchestra for the orchestral instruments (including the piano).

So yeah, not something you'll hear everyday. Hope you like it.

Great intro! Not far from a big budget movie intro at all. The only thing I noticed is that there's something weird going on with the reverb/release tail at 0:16-0:17, it seems to cut off artificially. Great transition to the more electronic part, didn't see it coming at all from the intro. It morphs wonderfully into the more electronic main part, that part is a bit too busy though I think. Maybe cutting the bass or low mids of the orchestra there would be a good idea. Then from 1:00 you have a really super solid hip hop beat, I love it. You should take that part and make a new non-superman loop out of it

"Great intro! Not far from a big budget movie intro at all."

Superman's the first hero to appear in the opening so it's awesome to hear that.

"The only thing I noticed is that there's something weird going on with the reverb/release tail at 0:16-0:17, it seems to cut off artificially."

Dunno about that... over there the tempo dies down a little which may be why it sounds a bit weird.

"Great transition to the more electronic part, didn't see it coming at all from the intro."

Haha yes that was the general idea. All heroic and orchestral and then BAM a hip-hop beat comes in.

"It morphs wonderfully into the more electronic main part, that part is a bit too busy though I think. Maybe cutting the bass or low mids of the orchestra there would be a good idea."

I didn't notice that at first but it makes sense because it's VERY hard to make hip-hop out of the Superman theme so to make it as epic-sounding as possible I just threw in all I could. Maybe I should've just made the trumpet stand out a bit more, since the busyness made it hard to make out the melody.

"Then from 1:00 you have a really super solid hip hop beat, I love it. You should take that part and make a new non-superman loop out of it"

I did something similar to that in the alternate version of this :3.

Thanks for reviewing dude.
