Definitely good without drums
By the way, the song is called "In A Snow-Bound Land" according to the soundtrack I have. Definitely very peaceful and relaxing. One of my favorite DKC2 pieces, though that game had a ton of awesome music. Good job looping it.
All the instruments you used work really well together, and give the song a really relaxed and tranquil feel (like the original).
(I agree a drum beat wouldn't have fit in)
This was a swell remix to the Arctic Abyss theme from Donkey Kong Country 2,it was accurate for the most part and i liked the beats that were used with it sounding as tranquil but with more trance than the original,nice work. =)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
