VERSION 3 IS NOW UPLOADED - December 21st, 2008

Sadly, I had to re-upload this song again since editing the file with a new upload was not working after multiple attempts over the last two days.

Changes include instrument changes in the intro - even more additional melodies to give the song greater depth and complexity etc.

As such It is even more refined now and work on the finale and ending is approaching.



Howdy there... this is a collaboration project between myself and HoboKa. This is the 2nd version of this song on this site in the past 7 days and we're looking forward to feedback.

You can hear HoboKa's work here.

(for some reason Newgrounds messes up the URL, you need to connect the word "audio" by joining the "u" and the "d" in that word within the URL when you past it for it to work)

He wrote the original above completely on his own. All changes and additions have been by me.

We got this going on the OCR forums after I told him how much I enjoyed his work (especially the drums), and the rest thus far his history. It's been a great experience thus far.

This is currently a WIP (work in progress) that we're letting the Newgrounds community get a little jump on.

What you're able to listen to is essentially about 3/5th's of song (3:00 worth). Basically, you're missing the climax and the ending.

There is no doubt still work to do with what you're hearing, but the climax and ending are not satisfactory yet so it's being kept under atm.

The song is based on Life in the Mines from Donkey Kong Country and the biggest reason song is being putting it up here to get some extra reviews/feedback so please don't hesitate to do so.

Actually, I suggest doing so as it will only give you all a better song to hear when it's done =)!

... plus, who doesn't like Donkey Kong Country :D!

Assuming this song is done before the 24th of December it might also be a part of the Monthly music contest. Although, It's going to take a lot for that to happen in time. We'll see...
Our hope is that this song will eventually make it onto OCRemix.

Again PLEASE REMEMBER THIS SONG IS NOT DONE. So don't post WTF? Why did the song cut out?! Also, I highly suggest not using this song in a flash until it's complete.

Enjoy the song so far!

Half and Half

I thought it was great until Min 2 and onward, the beat sort of went random and sort of uncave like in a techno sort of way, some of the notes were too loud and well I'm sort of just saying that the second half just doesnt really fit well together with the first half.


I dont care what anyone says this remix is epic. You gotta let me know when this is finished : D

TenchuX responds:

This song (finished) was submitted to OCRemix on May, 17th of 2010. We'll see if it passes :)!


Thats really accurate wel done :) And who doesnt love DK although the mine levels could get very annoying

*jaw drops*

Just from looking at this as it is now...if the climax and ending are anything like what you've posted here, then the OCRemix judges would have to be blind, deaf, and dumb to even consider not accepting it.


TenchuX responds:

If a guy on this site says *jaw drops* and gives this song a 9, I don't think OCR is going to say yes.

Joking aside, it still has work to be done... a shame I've had no time to finish it as of late.


Awesome. This thing really moves along in style. My only suggestion would be to make those snare rolls (i.e. 1:46 a tad louder). Other than that, perfect
