Since I found out that a guy who worked with Faulconer on DBZ's US soundtrack, "MorganStudios" had been doing a lot of fanservice and stuff in his own home studio for Youtube, I've subscribed to him to hear his stuff. But just the other day he instead sent his subscribers a link to another artist, who has been using his own Studio to recreate and Remix several of DBZ's greatest US themes! I thought I'd link him and share some of the great stuff here.

My favorite, obviously, is his nigh perfect SS3 theme recreation!

His whole DBZ playlist:

Super Saiyan 3 Power Up Theme:

Babadi Casts Spell Theme:

Gohan Fights Frieza Theme:

Krillin's Theme:

~~~~~~~~~~~~

And of course there are several others. The only drawback to these wonderful remakes/remixes is that he tends to overdo the bass a bit, giving it a grungy feel at times and making the mix feel a bit muddy. But it's still pretty awesome.

I'm glad Krillin has a theme that doesn't suck.

"Gohan Fights Frieza Theme?, That's buu, not frieza o_O. Though, that one has way too much bass in it.

There's no such thing as too much bass Sky. That's heresy.

Wasn't Scott Morgan a member on these forums, and offered to let the team use his tracks?

I thought I heard the team got permission from Faulconer himself, but that could be it.

Theyre not awesome. Dont get me wrong, they are well crafted - reproducing all the channels and riffs - but its still all too much of the same.

Changing some samples and adding one or two drumloops to the mix doesnt take it a step higher IMO. They all seem to build up to an anticlimax that lasts the next 75% of the track. The only one I really liked is the Cell theme, if only because it uses the same drumloop rythm from another techno remix i have on disk (sadly theres no author info :( )

Morgan has some cleanly equalized alternative beats rather than faulconer reruns, although I can hear a few BF samples here and there in the pads :p.

BTW Sott, I absolutely LOVE Darth Vegeta ^_^ Sick guitar work

thx man :)

Though I must say I've never sampled any of the Faulconer Productions tracks in my new work. I'm using the same synths so it might sound like it sometimes.

(btw, I also don't believe Jeezy sampled us, inspite of the rumors)
