Yeah, an off-season winter themed Remix during Summer...sue me (please don't). But it's catchy! Hope you dig it!

Indeed, catchy. ^_^ *Vibes* Kinda is VHS-y. Makes me also think of a theme for going into a shop to buy power-ups and stuff in a beat-em-up game, like Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game.

Fun times. XD 4/5 stars :D

VHS Vibe. It's really hooks me. Good job!

HoboKa responds:

Glad you dig it :D

Off season remixes are how I trick my brain into thinking it isn't boiling out during the Summer time, so thanks for this icy tune. :P

A good combination of being faithful to the original and adding some spice with the new synths. Good stuff!

HoboKa responds:

Thanks for leaving a comment! My remixes don't get enough love at NG >.<

I would never knock the composers for all the effort put into workarounds for hardware limitations back when these songs were created, because the creative use of simplicity is what really makes them so memorable to begin with, but it's because of remixes like this one that I sometimes wonder what could have been if they were provided with today's resources. I mention all of this because you've managed to provide a more eighties-sounding track than one that was literally created in the eighties.

HoboKa responds:

Well, it's because they had to down-sample to 24 kbs...when songs these days are at minimum 128...320 loss-less rate. That said, a lot of legacy music kicks MY ASS when it comes to automating things like vibrato and pitch tricks. I got a lot to learn too. Thanks for the thoughtful comment :D
