TURN YO VOLUME UP!

This is a tribute to Ken Silverman, arguably the pioneer of FPS games by creating the Build Engine. Originally used for Duke Nukem 3D and a dozen other games, it went on to be the basis for many other modern FPS game engines including the Source engine. While he is not very well known for his songs, they are fun to listen to. Fun fact: he created his own music emulator in order to play the music in his games.

The songs included in this medley remix are:
FLYSONG.KDM at 0:00
PREPSONG.KDM at 1:11
QUIKSONG.KDM at 2:00
NEATSONG.KDM at 2:33
FLYSONG.KDM (again) at 3:20

Feedback welcome (good or bad)!

I made an account just to write this, and oh my god... was almost in tears. It's beautiful! Ken's music is the best I've ever heard (still listen to many of his songs today), and to finally hear some of my most favorite songs remixed and served justice is just amazing. There are pretty much zero remixes of his music online so thank you for this. Please, consider remixing some more of his music. I can only imagine what amazing stuff you'd do with Notegain, Awesoken's Song and Tense Song and more. You've got talent, this is a proper remaster. Followed, and again thank you for this track.

I see you followed the link in that youtube comment I made the other day haha. Thanks for the review, really! I don't get many, and this actually took me a good while to make. Provided I'm still learning good composing technique and getting faster at it.

Until lately though, I didn't realize there were people out there as addicted to Ken's music as I am! Especially considering the most I've ever heard as far as remixes go were a few Prepsong remixes. Now that I feel like this remix is Ken-listener-approved I will strongly consider making more of them. The ones you suggested from Ken's Labyrinth are really good possibilities. Just love the tight melodies, and they could sound that much more epic after being recreated in modern music making software.

Also, while his loops are enjoyable as they are, I would love to extend his loops into proper 3-5 minute multi-part songs with a little in-style improv on my part.

I've never played duke nukem 3D but I don't need to, to gain the nostalgic vibes that this mix brings up. The samples flow seamlessly into each other and give the sensation of being in the Idyllic 80's internet on a hover board. Already on my third listen and I can't tell when i'm going to stop.
