Apparently, BubbleMan wants to get funked up, and DiscoDan has done an admirable job in assisting the MegaMan2 villain with his quest. 180bpm frantic BubbleMan jungle / borderline trance is the flavor here, with a hyper little bass drum and rapid fire shakers. A subsynth bass, magnificent delayed synth arpeggios and runs are flowered throughout, with a lead synth solo that interestingly comes in very early in the track and does not reenter in the second half. In its place are some fantastic varied timbres on the various runs I mentioned, and the drum track is quality (love those triplets). In a world of many MegaMan ReMixes, this one certainly stands with the cream of the crop and deserves your attention.
Nostalgia bias +100
Disco Dan is my hero.

The only thing I find annoying is the snare. That patch is WAY overused in remix, and I really don't know why. It doesn't sound cool. It only serves to announce "this is a remix..."
But I like the varying melody the remixer does in the saw-tooth. BEAUTIFUL countermelody. And I like the variance in half-time. Good stuff.

Funny side note,You can rap "DQ Blizzard" by Mc Chris nearly perfectly with the begining of this beat.If you know the words try it,I did and now every time i think of this song i think of that song.
Bubbleman rules though.

was very funky. Nice job Dan, as usual.

9/10, slightly repetitive at the end and didn't close too well.

Anyways, this mix is incredible. I was hooked within about 2 seconds of my first listen. That synth/sample just pulls me right in.
The overall flavor reminds me of late 80's or early 90's television for some reason, though I can't think of anything specifically. But I love it. Then that phat little beat kicks in, and the song settles into a nice, mellow groove for the rest of the way.
I can't say enough good things about this mix.
