first of all, funky fm music just really does it for me.  Even if it's something corny like early mariah carey I can get way into the music with the fm bass and keys going on.   Then, there's everything else in this song.  The enigmatic title.  The synth programming brings out all the right emotional responses in me:  leads that remind me of thunderforce (even if the portamento isn't quite as exaggerated), chording synths that remind me of very old and charming genesis osts like super monaco (except somehow they don't sound as flimsy here), and of course a solid bass.  Great original motifs, interesting harmonies, good melody, rhythm.. everything that can make a song great is here!

this is a pretty tight cover. Been jamming to his stuff all day. Tons of tunes

And also the only cover (besides XOC's) of Green Hill Zone.

This is legit jam. I usually hate every single person that covers this song.

Such a clean jam. Great samples. Need more modern composers with this feel and touch

Dude. I found The original version of Friday China Down. It's FUCKING SO GOOD.

 

I also found a Karaoke version of that song. It's also great.

I emailed this guy when I noticed his bandcamp page indicated that he lives in Georgia to see if he wanted to chill/collaborate/etc.  He got back to me and seemed really friendly, but unfortunately lives about five hours away on the other end of the state. :-/

Just insult him. He'll invariably hear about it, come on to defend himself (they always do) and then welcome him with open arms claiming it was all a joke!

Jeremy A. Smith is such a dingus and his music is making my skin clammy as hell. I wish he was registered here so I could address him directly with these claims.

 

That is to say, his music is good and I enjoy it.

Looks like he removed his Green Hill Zone cover or made it private. :(
