Where's the love Rig? Right here bro

"Am I Cool Yet?" is still one of the best and most under-rated pieces to come out of the Audio Portal, and this remix / cover bit does it no justice, it's simply some love and I don't aim to win this NGAP with this submission, again just love for Rig.

NGAP 10TH ANNIVERSARY CONTEST REVIEW

--

Now this is interesting. It sounds like you used the cardboard samples that Rig made, which is quite a nice tribute to the original. And even if you didn't, it sure sounds like it!

What's really obvious is that this has fantastic production quality. It's rare to see this kind of production on Newgrounds, so it's refreshing to hear a very well-defined bassy oomph in the kick and the grittiness of the bass. Everything is very clear and sits well in the mix, and the mastering is pretty much nailed too. The sounds are all well-chosen and it's pretty obvious you know what you're doing. Still can't get over how wonderfully rough and gritty that bass is.

That said, this has flaws which you're probably aware of. First issue I have is that this doesn't have much of its own uniqueness. It's just typical gritty dubstep that doesn't take the original to new lengths. The only time you vary significantly from the original is in the intro, and whereas the intro in the original had a likeable 8-bit flair to it, this has just a fairly cheesy synth over drums. Moreover, this is too repetitive. Later into the song one can realise that this really doesn't have much content in it. What it has is undoubtedly well-made, but you need to vary it up more. And what's up with that ending? D:

All in all, you've done a nice tribute with great production value. However, this needs more work in terms of actual musical content.

Hello.

The Good:
-Cool synths at the beginning, I like the slight variation of the main melody.
-Oh man, those wobbles are pretty darn sweet. I'd honestly love to know how you made them.
-The mix is pretty much always clean and clear.

The Not-So-Good:
-It's fairly empty in the mix at the beginning, especially at 0:18-0:35 with the distorted voices - those don't sound that well either.
-I'm not really sure how this is quite a remix aside from the melody in the non-wobble sections and a few of the wobble sounds being similar.
-To be honest, there's not too much in the mix overall - I'd have liked it if you added a few pads in similar to the original.
-That outro just comes in suddenly and doesn't really sound that nice anyway.

Overall: Score of 7/10. Biggest problem was the lack of overall sound. The piece you chose wasn't one that could be remixed easily, since it lacked much that could be remixed well.

Nicely done. I'm not too familiar with this genre, but I gotta say, this sure was really catchy. I think for me I would have liked a little more momentum overall, and a little more variation. It had a strong start, and then just kinda went on in the same direction. Would have liked to have seen you get a little more crazy with the cheese whiz. Indeed, this was 'pretty fuckin cool'.
