@CotMM - Go.....

@Misael.K - SANIC!

@JH Sounds - Yeeeeee....

@Coloradoweeks - Cymbal abuse is a fun thing to do lol

@InedibleTrout - ZOOOM!

@Coloradoweeks - Thank you, i had fun making it.

@Suzums - 198bpm is the tempo.

@Ethansight - The original T.V Show was quite vibrant and cartoony, so it makes the sense the theme is quite happy.

@JH Sounds - I read this as the Final Frontier lol

@Coloradoweeks - Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

@CotMM - Nope, only Sonic XD


@Misael.K - Demonic Car Noises........ooooooooo

@CotMM - Merzedes-bow lol. Get the joke?

@Ethansight -Sadly you're experiencing a car crash right now lol.

@CotMM - HAHA!

@JH Sounds - Yep, literally just car noises. 2 minutes of work went into this haha.

@CotMM - Oh dear XD

@Coloradoweeks - And also one hell of a ride.

@NickC - Awesome car noises...that took me 2 minutes to create lol.

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!

Now then....

TheVideoGamer - I don't know why i felt like doing this, but i ended up doing it anyways. We had a similar theme before, but i didn't want to recreate my past efforts so i tried for something different. The cover was the last thing i was expecting to do, but it just happened. I was thinking eurobeat initially, because you, and then it delved into this. I didn't have time to change my idea, so i just rolled with it, and this became the end result. It's essentially a Happy Hardcore cover of the speed racer theme, using my own collection of tools. Instrumental, because transcribing it took up a lot of time, and also producing alone resulted in so much time being wasted. Oh well, glad you liked it anyways!

ThaTaskmasta - Something extra because of course 3 minutes is not enough lol. Literally just audio files of car noises, manipulated. Took me 2 minutes for the whole thing....

cotmm68030 - Crispy textures. Very much feels like Doom sounding, but with a lot of very sparse cave like ambience. The rhythms are cool, it sounds like bitcrushed sound effects, it goes well with the movement of the cars. I like how soft of melodic the pad sounds are, even though there isn't a clear cut melody in this. The dynamics of the bitcrushed like textures were also great as well. It's almost sort of IDM in a way. The pad sounds were the highlight for me. It sort of gets more harder as you listen. It sounds like you've slowed some break down or something. It could do with some pauses here and there, the break is a tad bit forward, but besides that, there's nothing bad i can say. Well done!

DarkShadow - Resonanttttttttt. ALL THE LASERSSSS. ALLL THE VOLUMEEEEE. Cool sounds, but unfortunately not for me. Good job though!

DDRKirby(ISQ) - SYNTHWAVEEEEEEEE. Some seriously tight sidechain here, and juicy 80's synths. absolutely perfect for the theme, even if there is no neon for the images. Some amazingly tight melodies, and lovely production. I mean it is DDR after all. Incredible work!

Barley - Is this your attempt at making Eurobeat lol. The drums are actually pretty tightly mixed in this one, and the basslines work really work. I was surprised at how groovy that bassline is. The guitar and synths personally needs to be blended better. The metal vocals were also odd to me, i don't expect that kind of singing for this style. This is probably one of your best mixed tracks, but the clash of styles made me confused sadly. Good job though!

Nukage - I like that intro, it's like uncovering a CD or Vinyl record, and playing it. The vocals are awesome, it's that sci-fi electronic vocal that i really love in EDM. The production values are always top notch as usual, and the drop goes super hard. It does feel like it's a little incomplete/unmixed, because the kick is a bit brick-walled, and the vocals are a bit too bright into the mix, however the idea in itself is pretty awesome, and i am in love with the vocals. Took me a while to think about this one, and despite the fact that there is work to be done on this, it wasn't enough for me to place it in the Good Job category. So well done!

InedibleTrout - Ooh this is an interesting funky guitar....30...second ditty. I love the sounds....but i can't really vote for 30 seconds of music. Good job though!

Coloradoweeks - Oooh house vibes. I dig those moody chords and tight basslines. Very much one for the club. Perfect mix of high energy and space like sounds. It just needs a really heavy kick for this. I know there is one, but it's very weak in my opinion. Singing is awesome as always, i must always commend your awesome singing. Honestly a tight kick is the only improvement i feel is needed, everything else was really amazing. Awesome work!

NickC - 7ths galore. Loving these really cute melodies, this is very pretty sounding. Kind of relaxing for a car theme, but pretty awesome. These melodies are fantastic, it's very emotional sounding. So while not what i think of, in terms of the theme however as a track in its own right, it's beautiful. The melody and chords in this one are just beyond perfect. Incredible work!

mcmiagblackmanisgod - Tight loops.....

Starla - I'm really digging these cool pad effects. It's almost like an LFO that is synced to your voice, or maybe an overactive sidechain lol. Super into the drums, has that mix of downtempo and dance grooves. Bassline is not super strong in this personally, and the beats are kind of front and centre for this one. We don't hear your vocals for very long either. 20 seconds and they're gone lol. I'm sorry, the idea is super lovely, but i just don't think it's any more than a good job for me, and it's mainly due to the way you've mixed it (At least for me). Sorry, but good job!

Ethansight - Drum and Bass les gooo. These chords are fire, it reminds me of Sonic Mania for some reason. Like a modern cartoony racing game or something. I don't know the exact franchise, it's on the tip of my tongue. Melodies are awesome, however sadly the beats are very quiet. They are getting so pushed down by the melodies and bass, to the point where they're close to not existing. The mix itself is very bass heavy, which is good when the kick works in harmony, however in this case i can't really hear the kick at all. I was struggling to decide on this one, because the melody and chords were pretty amazing, however the kick as well as the relationship it has in the mix was sadly the reason it's a good job. It's hard with tracks like these, where there is both an abundance of awesome ideas, and ideas that need a bit of work/polish. This has potential, so don't fret. It was still lovely. Good job!

Arcana - The ol' Arcana techno making a return. I can tell you've improvised the lyrics. I assume the beat took awhile especially for the length of your tracks. Now the mix is actually lovely in this, however the waveform is a tad bit quiet. If you increase the waveform's volume, this becomes the best mixed Arcana track to date, no joke. Like Starla's you present the vocals for 20 minutes, and then they never return after that lol. Another one that took some thinking, and honestly i actually will give you this one, because the mix was actually really good, and there wasn't anything bad that stuck out. The quiet waveform was the only problem for me, which i can fix by turning up the volume on my speakers. Well done!

JH Sounds - Light uplifting pop music. Really liking some of the staccato hits. Adds a lovely of syncopation that just works. This is a ton of fun, the lyric writing is strong as ever. It just really makes me smile, it's just a fun head bopping number that sticks in your head. Well done!

Misael.K - Future Techno, that's definately what it sounds like. High energy, and packed with all the necessary saw leads. Loving these melodies, totally fit for some rave. Some of the keyboard parts sound like they were played live, it's very interesting. Mix is lovely, it really has that strong melodic idea, with lots of beautiful chords and melodies. It's a pretty awesome idea. If you were to finish it, a clap and some hi-hats could add more, and maybe blend the kicks a bit better (This is if you were to complete it), but besides that it was an extremely lovely piece. Amazing work!

obScene - Really liking these crispy stabs, it's like a distorted accordion or clarinet. Some really cool time signature changes going on. The piano lines that come in are beautiful, really adds to the space theme. Even if this is only half a piece, it sounds beautiful. That main melody (Despite not being sung), sounds like it's imitating a voice it's pretty amazing. Yeah i would love to see this complete, because it was awesome. Ending is abrupt, but everything else was just great. Awesome work!

Top 3 - NickC, DDRKirby(ISQ), Misael.K.

Coloradoweeks and obScene also deserve to be on the list. It took me some time trying to decide between Coloradoweeks and Misael.K for the 3rd spot. So it could have changed on any day.

Awesome - cotmm68030, DDRKirby(ISQ), Nukage, Coloradoweeks, NickC, Arcana, JH Sounds, Misael.K, obScene.

Needs Work - DarkShadow, Barley, InedibleTrout, mcmiagblackmanisgod, Starla, Ethansight.
