I'll begin by saying that this song is without a doubt... unequivocally, the best piece of music I've ever had my hand in. It completely blows the doors off of anything I've done before.

This song has been in the works since December of 2008, when I talked to a fellow named HoboKa about collaborating on a song he was working on. That's right, this song is a collaboration!

This is his YouTube Channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/HoboKa

Essentially what occurred was a mutual exchange of creativity and trust.

I took his song and turned it into what you're now hearing. In fact he just recently uploaded the song he made before I joined the picture. Completely unaltered too, so take into account the below song is from Winter of 2008.


So compare and contrast the changes if you want to play I-Spy or something haha.

Anyhow, this song wouldn't have been possible without HoboKa trusting in me over a year ago to get this done. In fact the first 2:14 of this song outside of a few additions/improvements have been done since January of 2009.

It took me a lot of practice and a few upgrades until I was ready to complete it... which I did quite literally over the last three nights. Haven't had much sleep! That's also why this song is being uploaded at 11:00PM PST on a Wednesday.

I hope you all enjoy this song! It is going to be submitted to OCRemix.org and we're both very hopeful that this song will make it through. We'd love to share it to the world in a beautiful 192kbps MP3 format over on OCR. That said there may also be some changes between this version and what you hear on OCR. I'm going through a feedback process to see what alterations are needed (if any), before the song is submitted.

The point of this song was and is to create a visual experience for the listener. When you hear this song imagine DK and Diddy starting in a cave all alone, then running into some Kremlings before they fight their way out to reach the outside.

Enjoy and thank you for listening!

UPDATE: This song was submitted to OCRemix on May 17th. Yep. Only took 6 1/2 years from my end. The version submitted has numerous changes, with the most apparent being the addition of some missing source during the 1st 1/2 of the climax. Unfortunately for all of you on YouTube I will not be releasing that version. If it passes the judging panel you will be able to download it on ocremix.org. If not, I'll make another update.
