One Hour Compo - Round 274 (OHC274)
Jan 09, 2014 Beatdrop
Forty-Two's needs no explanation: it's like definitive space stuff. Nicely composed.
General Mumble's is the rocking one out of the three, with its System Shock 2 meets Doom vibes going on. And that BASS!

DDRKirby: I decided this would get first because of the story it told. Lots of dramatic moments and development throughout, as well as the ambient feel (the percussion was really good). MechWarrior II nostalgia helps.
General Mumble: This one had great production and flow. Catchy and loud, amazing.
Shadow Psyclone: For the Sample and Hold ambience.
Honorable mentions (in no particular order, there are a LOT this week):

Zedd I liked it. Dat edm feel. My only complaint was that the kick was so loud that it was actually quite difficult to listen to the track at a normal volume.
Dyne lolz ok then.
abi I really like the reversed samples and how it gets prolonged towards the end. That was a neat idea.
beatdrop that is some really excellent sound design. had an eerie feel to it, excellent!
Shael_Riley best description ever. And I really enjoy the fade in/out pad like things. Good work.
Tomapella good oldskool vibes and good chords.
Hollow pretty neat, sounds like some sort of demented march to the underworld or something like that. :D
General Mumble dat unexpected drop is just amazing. well done. and then that switch at 2:05 is REALLY nice, I wish you would have repeated it more, but it's great anyways.
I think I was in chat for the rest.
A-zu-ra: excellent all around. Probably would have been first place if it was longer ;.;
Trancient: PIANO IMPROV HAXING. It's really good. The one thing I would suggest you to do next time though is to find some sort of main theme. It's not necessary but it gives the piece some coherence.
DDRKirby(ISQ): I was grinning the whole time. It's really refreshing to hear one of the old skool long form ddrkirby entries. Tasteful use of glitch on practically everything. That one melody in the middle is incredible but YOURE SUCH A TEASE for not ever bringing it back!
plastron: I mean sure, it's a little blastrony, but there's nothing wrong with that.
General Mumble I already wrote stuff about your track up there. I really liked it.
Ducks & D-Lux
TOO MANY GOOD ENTRIES
DOES NOT COMPUTE

Shael- THAT BASS. Some elements of this also remind me of Perfect Dark and that is never a bad thing
Atmospherium- this minimalist, dissonant, kind of unstructured take on the theme could induce a night terror, you bastard
honorable mention to...everyone, too damn hard to arrive at a top 3 for this week. space themes are too gud
Jan 16, 2014 Misael.K
obScene: this is perfect. (but you need better titles :P)
Zedd: I love this. Reminds me a lot of BT.
Trancient: damn you and your magnificent piano skills!
