As this year comes to a close, I wanted to post my latest SPEED UP tracks. (For the uninitiated among you, see here for an explanation what SPEED UP is)

The first track is from Bastion. The soundtrack is fairly normal in its speed, but the track “Spike in a Rail” makes for a great banjo rock piece when speed-up.

The second track is “Big Top Bop” from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

This game surprised me the most with its two epic rock boss themes- Punch Bowl and Volcano Dome respective. The first boss also has some great music, but when playing the game it gets largely ignored (even though the boss isn’t even all that hard). It’s just a tad too subtle.

In the speed-up version, this track will most definitely not be ignored! It might be overwhelming on your first listening, but after a few repeats the track will be much better to enjoy.

Remember, you can check out the entire playlist on YouTube. Even if these two tracks weren’t to your liking, there’s bound to be something on the playlist.
