Author Comments

-EDIT- Aug 2 2018 - V2 released: a revised version with improved production and mixing

Woo, this was conceptualized and made in a whim, but production ended up taking so long! This is one of my favorite tracks in Nintendo history and [Super Mario Odyssey spoilers] really surprised me in the final boss! One of the most amazing moments in any Mario game ever.

For my previous covers, I wanted to deviate a lot from their original sound, but for this one, I decided to make it more familiar, using samples from the original version and other familiar Mario songs. I hope you guys enjoy this one! I really liked the result <3
