AE is becoming something of a nuisance to me . . . why, you ask in disbelief? Well, he just insists on contributing fantastic MegaMan ReMix after ReMix after ReMix. What can I write about them anymore? It's impossible. Definitely one of the few ReMixers that currently has a "download anything I make" sticker on his forehead for most listeners. Okay, a modest effort: a great, Bubbleman ReMix CHOCK FULL of fantastic programming, synth AND rhythm-wise, mucho sections + variety, massive mad skillz and uber-l33tness through and through. Just a great mix, virtually flawless. Only thing I might add is that I for one would like to see AE branch out and try some other games from other companies . . . but hey, the guy loves his megaman . . .
Ah, another classic remix that I remember from long ago. The
feeling of this track is very different from the others that we've
heard from AE up to this point. Even though the synth choices are
very very similar, the down tempo beat gives this a great feel and
proves a nice change of pace! You can hear AE stepping out of his
shell a little bit with this! The low oscillating bass is great. He
loves the high quick synths in there, and I can't fault him for
that as they work really well. The brief key change was a very nice
touch in helping to break the track up a bit!! Ah, 3:00 brings us
more traditional AE flare with the crazy busy drums! But he brings
it back down to cool and smooth. It's interesting to hear him use
synths to create an atmosphere instead of just using them to create
a melody. That's talent! Great stuff!- tweex on August 6, 2010
The first OC ReMix I listened to back in '02 (when it was called
"Bubbleman Soap and Water"), and it's still a blast. Panning,
processing, filtering... everything sounds fun and well put
together. The melodic extension of Bubble Man's theme feels natural
and groovy. Even the aural lapses come in at just the right times
to ease the listener's ears.
Also, that weird, warbly synth starting at 0:04 and appearing
throughout... it sounds like electronic bubbly water or something.
Whatever it is, I like it.- Polo on April 3, 2009
The electronic genre has never been one of my favorites, but even
so I enjoy this remix. The beat itself is a rap song but the actual
sound is that of electronic music; a good combination, if I do say
so myself. I like how at about 2:20 it strays off from the source
material and goes into a bunch of random beats for awhile but keeps
the original feel, too. The creepy, ambient part at 3:25 is a great
change of pace, then it hops right back into the original melody,
ending with a satisfying fade-out.
Overall, a solid mix. Great work.- LuketheXjesse on January 23, 2009
i think the song is good. i don't think there are "too many beats"
as other's have said. Beaing a drummer i can appreciate the fast
drum fills in the middle of the song. But it's not like there are
several layers of different rythms clashing into each other. I like
the synths. i'd give it 4 out of 5 stars.- animatedjay on January 23, 2009
This is one of the two bubbleman mixes that were my very first OCR
downloads. AE and DiscoDan are pretty much the reason I knew about
the site at all.
Needless to say, this is a completely killer track with a great
flow, great beats, and some creative synth use. The source itself
is also a favorite of mine.
I'd love to hear what AE has been up to. I bet by now he's mixed
the entire mega man series. :-)- OA on September 18, 2008
It gets too complicated in the middle. So many themes and beats
going on..... *sigh* (what ^ said) and it gets a bit
8/10- SakakiAzu on November 13, 2005
I can´t really decide if I´m liking this mix or not. Sure, this a
great techno piece with nice synths and a whole arsenal of beats.
But then again, there´s too many beats. The beginning is good when
the mix builds up itself and trying to get into the groove. But at
some times I wonder if it´s too much. But that may also just be
around 3:10 and the rest is harmless.
Very aquatic remix from AE, I´ll give ya 4 bubbles of possible 5.- Bummer on November 12, 2005
AE is the best. I wish he would submit remixes again like this...- Shwenky on September 7, 2005
I must confess...
This remix of bubbleman is the best i've heard...[the key change
really took me away] next to disco dan's version. I've heard the
hardcore rock version thanks to project X, but this one really
applies to my "techno" realm. Even though im new here and [sadly]
new to the art of remixing, i know talent when i hear it.
Hope to be as good as you one day...keep it up!- muzikal-phoenix on August 24, 2005
This is a great mix, don't hear many like it, It sounds like it's
coming from an Industrial/Techno whiz, or it could be that you just
got lucky when you mixed it, not that I'm putting down your skill,
I just know how it is when mixing things, you can do something
accidentally and it turns out to be a killer riff.....heh sorry to
ramble.....hang tough- IC_Grave on August 23, 2004
AE is an elite OC Remixer. He puts effort into the work, unlike
many of us. It takes time, probably like 40 hours, to make a remix
like this. To pay so much attention to detail requires knowledge
and ambition. So far, my favorite remixer. On par with any
commercial electronic release of yesterday or today.
The guy can mix. I have had the pleasure of listening to this song
on a surround sound Genelec system, and this song is like ear
heroin. The 2:20 interlude, what can I say. It's beautiful. This
guy is going to inspire me to do some more quality work. If you
want to make an OC Remix, this should be your template. Hell, if
you want to make electronic music that MEANS something, this should
be your template.- MrNemo on August 23, 2004
I'm totally in love with the beat to this song. It's done in a
totally different way than you would expect a Bubbleman mix.
Awesome. I love it.- Shonen Samurai on March 26, 2004
On the same day I first heard this song, I put it on a CD after
listening to it about 500 times. It's still one of my favorite
songs and I listen to it often. Quite the bomb-diggity, in my
opinion. I give it a 5/5, 10/10 and all that. Schwing!- Vile on February 5, 2004
Two words, my friends: Awesome Awesome. I realise that technically
that was one word but I thought it was such an accurate
description, it was worth mentioning twice.- Squirminator2000 on January 6, 2004
[b]Great![/b] i like this mix a lot.
AE has Skills. I bet every one of us remixers can learn a little
somthin From AE.
Good Work.- javina on January 6, 2004
