Artist Mazedude has made a tribute to American video game composers in which songs from various games are remixed, calling it The American Album. The first song on the album is a remix from the “Water Level” in JJ2 by Alexander Brandon. Elements of other Brandon songs such as “Universe Electric” and “Carpe Diem” also appear within the song.

The entire album was released online for free. You can download the entire album at once or certain tracks on this page. Some other remixes appearing on the album are from Earthworm Jim, Commander Keen, Doom, and Myst. Commentary on the tracks is also provided. As Mazedude was gracious enough to release this album for free online, donations are encouraged.

A long time ago. I’m an admin too you know.

nice to see some people still remember about this game.
i didn’t like the style of the music really though.

…we do.

It’s really nice to see that a JJ2 tune remix got the honor to be probably the most important track on this album.

“…we do.”

Do care about what? A single remixed audio file? Well, maybe you and the other several “remixing guys” do, but anybody else (which makes like 90% of this community) don’t.

There is quite much a difference between the active players and active community members, which, remarkably, quite outnumbers the active players’.

spejsboi on 17 Nov 2005 at 20:04

what does it have to do with my post cooba?

cooba on 17 Nov 2005 at 20:54

It says that the community does care about stuff like that you mainstream gamer you :(

PHT on 17 Nov 2005 at 20:56

Actually, I care aswell. Which makes it 89.000000009 percent or something.

Stijn on 17 Nov 2005 at 22:36

Well r3ptile, the fact that someone who’s not a full-time gamer nerd actually remembers JJ2 is pretty cool. And that’s why we could care.

Tik on 17 Nov 2005 at 23:26

Regardless if anyone cares, it was news relevant to jj2, and that’s hard to come by these days.

If you don’t care, that’s fine. But expressing such isn’t exactly useful.

Thumbs up for Spaztic (and Double Dutch) for brining us these news.

If you think about it, it’s actually quite rare we hear news about Jazz Jackrabbit outside our community, and that deserves attention. It’s also quite interesting that the Jazz Transformer Remix was chosen as track number one, seeing what kind of (old) popular games it was lined up with.

I downloaded all the tracks and they’re some of the best remixes I’ve heard up to date. I definately suggest that someone picks up the Jazz Transformer Remix track and uploads it here so that we won’t lose it in case the site it’s hosted on goes down (like most other Jazz 2 sites do in time).

Well… Is that well or wrong? I normally don’t like Mazedude’s mixes, they are about average. Although they are mostly original, and some, I must say, are good. But only some.

But… Is it well or wrong that someone, who normally makes mixes of gamemusic, remixes song from JJ2? It’s in news just because he’s not part of the community, it’s apparently something cool, that non-being here.

By my opinion (and I am sure that I am not alone), music of Dr Eggman is better. Maybe just because I like the disco style more… And… Do we have him in our news? If it was commercial, I could say hmm, wow. But this… This should be just a JCF topic, I am sure I was interested by nice find. But… nothing more.

I sense a bit of fake patriottism on that website. But hey, the remix is pretty cool and it’s nice to see that Jazz is put back in the spotlights for a while.

When Dr. Eggman releases his stuff on a CD with game music remixes and sells it it’d be news, Danyjel. As of now it’s easy to find his stuff by going to the downloads section. This file is not in the downloads section, and is newsworthy because it is included in a commercial release and is an outsider remixing a song, showing JJ2 is appreciated. Of most people in this community we already know they appreciate JJ2.

Odin314 on 19 Nov 2005 at 02:36

This isn’t a commerical album. You can download all the tracks off the site.

Nonetheless, this guy is awesome.

DanYjel on 19 Nov 2005 at 14:43

Frank, I don’t call ‘commercial’ something, what you can download free at his personal website. As I said, nice find, but… I still see no reason why it’s in news… People who are interested can look on JCF

Stijn on 19 Nov 2005 at 16:23

Yeah why was the JCS94 update actually announced as news? You could download it for free at this very site. The trojan horse post was pretty useless too, people could just look at the JCF. Same for the JDC announcement, players could just look at the JDC site.

You’re just jealous Danyjel. Come on, it’s not up to you to decide what is news and what is not. Is it special when someone who has been in this community for quite some time posts a song remix at the J2O download archive? No. Is it special when someone who is not in any way affiliated with this community and is remixing on a more professional level (at least he has a website) than the rest here? Yes.

Flash wins.

Hey Reptile cool idea!!!

Since you’re functionally the only one who agrees with you, why don’t you stop pretending like you are speaking for the unwashed masses who need protection from dangerously tedious news posts that they can just not read!!!

Ready go!!!

FQuist on 20 Nov 2005 at 03:18

/me replaces the news page with a list of the newest JCF threads

DanYjel on 20 Nov 2005 at 17:48

/me agrees with r3ptile. whatever he says…

Odin314 on 21 Nov 2005 at 03:09

/me suggests making the JCF the front page for J2O
