Mega Man 2

Hey - amazingly enough, it's actually been awhile since the last MegaMan ReMix was posted! This is a first-time submission, and a very impressive one at that, from Nilvah. Using filtered synths, VERY tight beats, and a cool echoey lead, Nilvah has composed a really strong ReMix of the Wily Stage music from the immortal MegaMan 2. No complaints here, as all the elements are there, come together nicely, and by any measure this is pretty damn good techno megaman ReMix, even relative to some of the other excellent MM mixes on the site. Big kudos to Nilvah for keeping the MegaMan ReMix quality indicator riding high.

I may have sinus reactions a lot (in reference to the previous poster), but I don't think it would go as far as to set something off within my nose. :razz:
However, to me it just comes off as an awkward straight cover with a layered drumbeat (and what sounds like a wind sound coming in for the last minute as well), a little ill-mixed too due to sensing a bit of distortion during the bridge sections. I give props for the neat filtering though, but other than that there's been nothing going on much at all - a ridiculously bland interpretation of the theme. :|

"Speed of Techno" is a phrase that comes to mind.
>.< oh wow, I'm sorry but I think if I listened to this too much I might get a headache; that beat is just waaaaaaaaaaaaay to pounding. I mean I can feel it in my sinuses.
Also this sticks pretty close to the melody making this mix feels incredibly narrow and stuffy.
Sorry I don't really recommend this. :|

This really sounds like a cookiecutter mix. Very little rearrangement, and basically no change from the original melody. There's little effort to develop it, and the production is poor.
There's just about nothing appealing about this mix at all.

I always like a song with a good, steady beat. The differences between the source and this mix were subtle, but present. Good job.

Driving techno ftw. Classic Wily's Castle remix
I really like this synth melody. I think that if it had been put over a less generic techno beat I would have loved the song more, but when I'm in a techno mood I'll put this track on. The drums are fairly minimal, but they're another great part of the background.

I say good, but not great. A solid techno mix, but a little to close to the source for my tastes. I love the intro, though, and nothing specific in this mix really bothers me. It just isn't stellar.

The source is amazing, so it's no surprise how many remixes there are of it. This one is certainly not my favorite, but it has some good qualities. It's certainly driving right from the start, in an 'in your face' way, so it sets up it's own feel right from the start. It's also a basic techno approach, which while conservative, isn't bad.
The lack of doing...really anything new to the melody hurts this the most, IMO. It's really a straight techno cover, which causes a loss of interest when compared to all the other great remixes of this source.

This almost borders into Midi-rip territory, but still, I like this quite a bit. Probably because of how awesome this theme is in general. The percussion was pretty good, and the synths were okay. I was really digging the part around 1:57, that's where the beats and the melody were at their best IMO. Unfortunately the mix had to end very soon after that... :sad:

Very conservative in re-arranging, and i'm not digging the lead synths, but there is a reason this song is so remixed, as it's frickin sweet. Besides a rocked up "tekno" feel, this mix doesn't really grab me.
I think I would have loved this when it was released, but time has taken it's toll.

Pretty dated and a conservative arrangement, but the changeups employed with the sounds and production made this one ok in terms of facing Lockdown 2. Would I groove to it regularly though? Naw. It's only really cool if you're ok with relatively minor upgrades.

I feel lonely in this thread...
Ah, the good´ol Wily castle theme, how many times haven´t someone remixed that one? To get to the case, cool synths, not sure if there was that many beats in it, maybe that one was a synth. Personally I don´t think there ever was a need for Wily to get even more technoer, but I guess should be nuff.
Kewl mix, Nilvah.

Mega Man 2 'Tekno Wily'
Such a great theme, the wily from megaman two is. this is another great
techno interpreteation of it. i wish we had more tracks by this remixer,
because this one is probably one of my favorite versions.
