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.
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. :|

>.< 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. :|

There's just about nothing appealing about this mix at all.

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.

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.

I think I would have loved this when it was released, but time has taken it's toll.

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.

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.
