I LOVE this song. I remember hearing some of the earlier versions and I think TGH did a great job improving it over the various iterations. Definitely one of my favorite Mega Man mixes of late. Great job! And thanks for the shoutout :-D

Better do it guys. It's your own fault.
I ALWAYS love what TGH here does. He's incredible.
He brings so many things to the table, keeping it fresh every time, while retaining his own sound.
I wish TGH a prosperous future in terms of music. He deserves it.

:tomatoface: I'll post a real review.

I really do love this song. IMO this is probably the mark where you really started definitely developing your current style in remixing / music in general (but even then you've changed so much) Maybe the whips memory did too, but this is definitely close to your newer house stuff. I absolutely love this song because I'm a sucker for long, drawn out slides on synths built into the melody.

The ambience at 2:23 was awesome of course, and the drop afterwards was absolutely epic. Seemed like the song was going to end for a second, and it came back full throttle. Very cool. The ending was kind of funky which I really liked.

This should be an insta download for any electro fans. It's super catchy, and just "cool". Yeah that's the only word I can think of.

Crap. Sounds like every other techno song on the site.

Try harder next time Mr. ViolinProtagonist.



Piss off. :-P

Enjoyable stuff, TGH!

At the risk of garnering hate, gotta say I very slightly agree with urdailypee. (Very very slightly, VERY slightly, just in as much as I think it could have used slightly more effort). This is a really nice mix and it sounds great, and is nice and clear on my monitors, but it seems to meander a bit too much which is something that you notice from time to time with electronica mixes... It has a really nice verse and a chorus and the break at 2:20 is really awesome, but throughout the majority of the song, it lingers on the same four on the floor drum pattern. After the initial repetition, it would have been cool to hear some kind of drastic change with the patterns in the arrangement instead of coming back to that same part. The kick drum does seem to be a bit too upfront but that's a minor gripe. I don't want you to think I am h8in' TGH because I do really enjoy this song and your work, just sharing some thoughts. I don't think the flaws detract from the song too much and it is still quite enjoyable.

It's got some serious hard-hitting bass, I'll give you that. A lot of the techno-ey parts tend to get old after a while. The change of pace around 2/3 was an important edition. The remix went pretty well. So don't sweat things too much, TheStringedInstrumentChampion. He's right to an extent, but it's hardly ruining Quick Man or anything. I'd say high 7's, low 8's.

edit: Woops. Got infracted for trolling and stuff. :tomatoface: I'll post a real review.

Umm. Welcome to Arizona, I guess?

Anyway, I liked this. Got a pretty serious ABBA vibe around 1:40-1:45. Not sure if you want to hear that, but there it is.

I won OHC208 and RWS 1-1!

This was buried among all the MM mixes on my Shuffle forever, but it came up recently and infected. my brain. LOVE the relentless energy of the percussion and how it comes back after that little detour. This song pumps me up.

Hearing the upbeat electronia dance beat influence for PR in here, but TGH still managed to put a pulsating spin on it that gives it life. The second half of the ReMix is where it really seems to shine and switch things up, but overall, lots of energy and a good beat makes this enjoyable.

This is a great remix! I'm surprised by how well you have put it together, including, not only a good deal of source but a lot of your own. I completely would rather of this as the background music while playing Mega Man 2!
