Description

Labrat was easy to turn into a funk tune, so here it is in funk style. This song features the same samples used for the other 3 songs and also uses a midi sample (sample 45). This song has 45 samples and is slightly faster.

Enjoy this and the other three tunes for I will be going on holiday for 6 days on June 4th (With most of the people in my school year). When I get back I will be back to doing funk tunes.

My favorite JJ2 tune is Labrat. As since mine is build via the labrat tileset, I actually used Used it for my level Pipe Down. So I would say keep it up with these remixes and make more of those. I love them really! :)

==================Simple Review==================
Base Score: 5/10

Point Bonuses: +4
[+4] You know what? I’m shooting myself in the foot here, but I sincerely think this song deserves full marks. Or close to it… It is absolutely beautiful and delivers exactly what it promises; a funk remix of “Labrat”. If it wasn’t for that part around 2:09 that sounds exactly like the source material, this could easily be given +5 points…

Point Deductions: -0
[-0] No deductions. None. Whatsoever.

Final Score: 9/10
=================Extended Review=================
Introduction:
A complete retooling of “Labrat” from Jazz Jackrabbit 2, done in a seemingly trendy “funk” style. Does it hold a candle to fearofdark’s other works, or will we be left just blowing in the wind? Let’s boogie!

Song Analysis:
As mentioned, this is a complete retooling of “Labrat” from Jazz Jackrabbit 2. While not quite as funky as fod’s “Dark Groove Funk” or “Hell Freezes Over Funk,” it still has that wonderful funky vibe I’ve come to expect from these kinds of arrangements. Unfortunately, this particular piece of music seems to borrow a little more heavily from the original piece of music than “Hell Freezes Over”. As such, a lot of patterns (particlarly the patterns around 2:09.5) sound pretty much note-for-note, aside from the added drums.

Features/Sample Analysis:
More beautiful guitar samples with some equally awesome drums and synths mixed in. Everything is clear as a bell with no real grain to it. What more can I say?

Final Analysis:
Aw, fod… I’d say “you let me down,” but honestly, despite the fact it’s quite a bit too similar to the original Labrat, you really haven’t. I really, really like this piece! I just kind of wish you’d done something a little more funky with that “awe” area around 2:09.5…

Recommendation?:
HECK. YES.

Well, überquick review.

This got me. Awesome accoustic guitar, cool melody editing and \‘improvisations\’, amazing funky beat, fantastic background,

Things I don\‘t like: Stupid ending, feeling that you had to use all the melodies, even when not all fit. Too loud lead sample which doesn\‘t fit into overall funky style…

Anyway, great tune. Your best. DL strongly recommended.

TO JOSEPH COLLINS: NOBODY ASKS YOU FOR A REVIEW. SO IF YOU HAVE PROBLEM WITH TOO MANY TUNES AT ONCE, I ALLOW YOU TO NOT REVIEW MY ONES.

At about 1:25 inward, the song is too groovy for words.

However it takes a while to go faster, and to be honest actually feels slower than the other funk remixes.
However, the song is reconizable throughout which is something missing from the Hell Freezes Over remix, also you finally got the ending thing down-pat.

All I can say, is that with these groovy remixes, you deserve that week long holiday.

Very well done, well done. The song has the feel of Labrat with a tiwst. The song tho gets a bit slow in the middle, and it seems to repeat alot. But the song also has a groove that gets the listiner’s attantion fast. Plus the song repeats so you can use it in levels.
Overall well done.
I recommend the Download of this song if you need to make a good furture setting level.
