Instead of going to bed yesterday, I drew this on an oversized art tablet I’ve had since I was in highschool. There are only two or three other drawings in this thing, and they are of predictably old things. I’ll never be able to scan them, or this image of Donkey Kong, which was done from memory.

Idly thumbing through MP3s I’ve done while putting off installing Windows on that new HDD. This one’s a good six months old, but I find myself going back and listening to it a lot because I spent a really long time tweaking it. It started out as one of those MP3s I never though I would ever get to sound right but over time pieces of it started falling in to place as I got better instruments to play with and very, very slowly learned how to use FL Studio better.
I think it’s the first time I’ve really pulled off jazzy brass to a satisfactory level, the drums sound awesome (and they usually don’t, for me), it’s just a great version of the song. I love the crap out of it and I think I actually prefer my version of Jungle Japes here to the one they used in Donkey Kong Country Returns - though I am obviously a little bias.
It’s up on my Tindeck, just click here and it’ll take you to a page where you can download it for yourself.
