OneUp - Your trancy style works again. I especially like the part around 1:00, there's good variation and the kick also works well.
Hoboka - Funny style, the last 35 seconds are a bit weird in combination with the first part, but it is a good variation.
FreakyT - It is short and simple. The built-up is nice and the (short) source is used very well.
DrumJ8 - Nice combination of the sources. Even though there's not much variation in the instruments, the song didn't bore me.

OneUp - Standard, but still good.
Drumj8 - Not sure that I dig the overall instrument/production side mesh in this piece, but some cool flashes of inspiration on the arrangement side.

DrumJ8 - I was also extremely fond of this work right here. I reminisce of the nes with the lead synth. The bassline works real well with that. Also a lot of energy in this track.
FreakyT - When I saw that it was 15 seconds long I didn't want to touch it. You gave it an excellent sound though. I very much like what you did to it. You definitely used that 15 seconds well.

Yehat's Darkside - Very enjoyable 80s treatment of the source!
Control the Starship... - The yearning feel of the beginning is very fitting for the source. A bassline for the more "fast beat"-oriented bits of the piece would have been nice, but the more atmospheric parts were fine as they were.
wnt t blv - It did feel kind of standard, but I enjoyed it, and especially appreciated the Orz mariner sound effect in there!
Earth All Along - Nice cinematic feel. The momentum doesn't seem to pick up properly, for instance the 0:15 breaks it. It stays restrained, which is not a bad thing in itself. But the piece is quite short!
Giant Airborne Primates - slow bass and busy beat make for a nice floating feel. Around 1:25 & 1:33 feel dissonant, the themes clash in an unpleasant way. That said, I like how you changed the fanfare theme. I'm left wanting to hear more, I wish it would pick up with a busier groove and change up the chords a bit.

Control the Starship or Whatev by hoboka: Very fun track! Fantastic use of reverb, I really like the mix of sound especially in the beginning. The end was very nice as well, I could have a lot of fun throwing djenty guitars over that haha
Earth All Along by FreakyT: The really like the orchestral sound in this, and I know it takes a bit more work to get it sounding good as supposed to all synths. The samples sounded really good, but I wish the track was a bit longer!
wnt t blv by OneUp: I�ve always had an affection for trance. This is the kind of track I could listen to over and over before I get bored; it just has a great atmosphere to it. I really enjoyed the part around 2min, the change up really complimented the track. Production sounds darn good for only a night�s worth of work.
Giant Airborne Primates by DrumJ8: Mashing the snare with the Star Control source sounded pretty sweet man. I really dig the whole sound and feel of your track. The buildup in the middle was tasteful, I was sorta hoping a for a bass drop and my hair to be blown back after, but that�s okay lol

hoboka - The beginning was my favorite part, it sounds nice and slow, and dark, I like it.
OneUp - I like the chord progression in the pads.
FreakyT - Nice interesting arrangement of a 15 second track :D I'll say, try experimenting with the velocities of the notes, e.g. every piano note sounds accented and pushed a little too hard.

Xsquader: The intro is my favorite part! The rest seems repetitive but generally pleasant to listen to.
hoboka: I'm not nuts about that strange intro sound, but I like the rest of the song. I like the almost new-agey feel with the ethereal choir sound.
