Echo May 19, 2013

Hi everyone, I've been a long time lurker on these forums but I haven't really posted anything before. I recently met with Adam Corn while attending the Final Symphony concert in Wuppertal, Germany, and I have to say he's a very cool guy!

But anyway, I'm going to perform a video game music DJ set (with some anime music thrown in) in mid-June at the evening party of Finland's biggest anime convention. So please give me suggestions on what to play and what you think are tracks you would like to dance to! smile It can be anything from original soundtracks to official or fan arrangements. I'm thinking of playing music like the Rockman techno arrange albums, some of bLiNd's arrangements, some Yuzo Koshiro like Wangan/Actraiser/Streets of Rage, Sota Fujimori's Contra stuff and some 8/16-bit originals for nostalgia fun.

Please give me specific tracks for what to play, not just albums, because it's more useful that way. smile Suggestions on what NES/SNES/Genesis originals you would like are particularily welcome.

Hi Echo! Project Majestic Mix - Trance Album has a lot of really kicking tunes. You should definitely sample "Industrial Fear," "On Top of Jacob's Ladder" and "St. Gabriel's Mask" if you haven't heard it, or pop it back in for a listen if you have it! I've got to hand it to to PMM / KFSS Studios, this was a really good followup to their work back in the day. o7

Also, that sounds like an awesome party, I've gotta check if I would be able to come!

This is a great topic, and I'm glad to see other posters sharing some great tracks! I'm all in favor of the Yuzo Koshiro tracks and those CAVE arrange tracks.

This isn't "club/dj" dancing, but when I think of vgm that makes me want to dance ... well, I want to take ballroom dancing lessons so I can dance to this track:

Uncharted Waters <3

Echo, have you thought about live streaming the event online?

Echo Jun 8, 2013 (edited Jun 8, 2013)

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions. There's plenty of tracks to choose from for a 45 minute set now, I'm sure :)

Yotsuya, I haven't really thought about it, but I'll look into it. I can record the mix and put it online afterwards, at least, if streaming doesn't work.

And Ramza, that is one really awesome track! Loving it.

No mention of Rock Solid from Conker's Bad Fur Day or Aeropolis from F-Zero GX?  Those were what immediately popped into my mind!

The party was yesterday and it was AWESOME. So much good music and really excited and nice people. There were five dj's/performers there in total. Here's what I played: … ucon-2013/

It starts kind of abruptly because I forgot to hit the 'record' button and the song had been going on for maybe a minute. :D But nothing much missing there, really.

Yotsuya Jun 18, 2013

Great set, really well done!

Adam Corn Jun 19, 2013

No download link? smile

Echo Jun 19, 2013

Thanks Yotsuya!

Here you go Adam:

Finally getting around to listening to this now.  Love the glitchy dance remix of Frog's Theme.  (Then again I just frickin love Frog's Theme.)

You gonna privilege us with a set list Echo?  Looks like I'm gonna have a lot of tracks to ask you about if not. wink

Also is that some Yoji Biomehanika in there??

Echo Jul 16, 2013

Adam, what's Yoji Biomehanika?

And the setlist can be found on the above Mixcloud link smile Glad you liked the tracks!

Espgaluda 2 is an amazing soundtrack that could have been used here. All the remixes pail in comparison to what Namiki created. I cannot believe I had such a negative impression of the album as I probably just listened to the poopy Disc 2 side.

Ah I never replied to this.  He was just a Japanese "hard dance" / "hard trance" DJ back when that was a thing.  I'm not exactly a fan for the most part but one of the tracks in your playlist did sound a lot like him.
