After 2 days work, my next funk mix is finally here.
This one is of Diamondus and this one is special cause I found some great new samples to
rip use. The samples are from Dr Q-Cumbers’ ‘heatwave’. Since i’m still finding how to use these samples, only a few (about 5 of the 42 in this song) have actually been used. The rest are from the 200 or so samples from ‘System 51’ and ‘Second time’.
Anyways, enjoy this relaxed ‘sax’ version of what Diamondus would be like in funk.
EDIT: Well here it is again..But better. Another days work was spent on improving this. Its probaly not at its best, but it’ll have to do.
It’s good…. But.. oh well Diamondus was already a remix and was a bit funky at the original tune.
But it’s well in rest. 9.2! +DR

this is some nice piece of work just like the other works made by FOD. i like this funky tune especiely becouse diamondus is really a nice tune and i think that what was made in this fine piece just puts out the best out of diamondus i also very like the melody made by the sax, it’s relly nice tune and of course i recommend this download, belive me that you won“t regret it.
As much as I like the tune, I can’t help but feel it’s just a sample change. It doesn’t have the feel of freshness the original Castle Funk remix had, nor the uniqueness/awesomeness of it’s succesors.
It’s excellent for listening, and for playing, but it just doesn’t bring anything new to the plate.
DR- Yeah, it’s sounds excellent, but compared to your other tunes, this one falls short.
EDIT @Crimi- I like it, but I also like the JJ2 Diamondus tune. There’s just little difference between the two for me to rate it high.
It’s more than milk, but not quite a milkshake, know what I mean? I like it, but it doesn’t move me as much as your Labrat mix did. Good job, anyway, and keep bringing up those remixes! Don’t let these (semi-)negative reviews get to you. It’s just a matter of taste.

this amp rapes your ears. and no, it’s not funk.it’s more funk rock. with a ‘sax’ sounding more like a horrible bröl
Do i need to say? Great? yes! Boring? NO!!

[takes a squeaky-hammer to Dorian] I wanted to be the first to review this! Augh. T_T; [ahem] Anyway…
Like a Diamondous in the rough, this piece finds itself unburied from the sands of time. But does it shine in the sky? Or is it simply an immature piece of coal? Let’s find out.
As far as I can tell, it basically goes like this. fod took the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 arrangement of “Diamondous” and heavily arranged it into what he considered a “funk” style. While it does indeed sound like “funk,” or “jazz,” there just seems to be no real flair to it like with his other stuff. Almost like he didn’t try as hard with this one. Needless to say, I’m kind’a disappointed…
As usual, all samples are clear and true with no noticable graininess.
Mm… I’m kind of disappointed with this one, fod… I’m sorry to say, but I really am. As mentioned, this more or less sounds like a simple rearrangement of “Diamondus” from Jazz Jackrabbit 2. And that’s it. I wasn’t sure what I was expecting here, but this wasn’t really it… It’s still Jazz to me(the genre, I mean), but it doesn’t have that flair of absolute awesomeness that your “Hell Freezes Over” remix had.(In case you couldn’t tell, I really, really liked that remix.)
“Insert Aladdin Reference Here” Points: 0.7
Total Score: 5.7
As Dorian said, you don’t regret this download in the least. Just don’t expect much as far as changes go.
Miscellanious Note of the Moment:
Considering this is the first truly bad(read: “average”) review I’ve given to fearofdark, I’d say he’s doin’ just fine. Heh heh.
