EDIT 25th April: Minor changes to the backing, and the transition from Life in the Mines > Donkey Kong Rescued is much better.
Oh, and I submitted it to OCRemix!!! =D I'll find out if they've accepted/rejected it in a few months.

Fixed and extended version of my recent Mining Melancholy ReMix. Now it's 100x better and includes more Life in the Mines (DKC) and a bit of Donkey Kong Rescued (DKC2 Credits). Also a lot more original riffs and such. Life in the Mines is from Donkey Kong Country. The other two songs are from Donkey Kong Country 2.
I hope you all enjoy it! =D

I enjoy listening this while playing Minecraft :D


I just love how you managed to combine Kanon's Klaim with Life in the Mines, plus the Donkey Kong Rescued part in the end. The transition was great. I just wish there was a little bit more of Donkey Kong Rescued, since the melody is beautiful.
I liked the old transition, I think you should submit both. Anyways, awesome piece of art, gave me the chills. Donkey Kong Country 2 was probably the best DK game ever (even Donkey Kong Country Returns being great).

Isn't it funny


1. This song actually sounds good?
2. I'm actually giving a MINING MELANCHOLY remix a 10?
3. You made an Author's Response to one guy saying "I wish they would make a new DKC game" AND THEY DID?!

Of course, it does suck... but still. (Seriously, jet pack and guns? Is this Donkey Kong Country or Agent Kong?)

Epic Awesomeness...

Seriously though, nice job! I love the way you roll the Donkey Kong Rescued theme out of the Mining Melancholy (especially around 1:21).

Great, but why the abrupt ending?

Great remix, but would be even better if the part starting at 4:40 was expanded on - it seems promising, yet suddenly ends for no reason. =/
