Atmospheric agua in the form of downbeat electronica from bLiNd, covering the groovy, super laid-back water tunage from Donkey Kong Country. Gotta love the original, and though there's not much additional arrangement to speak of, Jordan has done good, wholesome things with the instrumentation, choosing impeccably his various replacements for the original SNES timbres and mixing the whole enchilada to a milky, deep, reverberating abyss of music. I now have a much longer commute thanks to a new job, but mixes like this give me less to complain about - very soothing, perhaps even enough to make me forget about people that leave their turning signals on for ten miles or go twenty in the left lane when the limit's thirty or don't understand the concept of a merge or yield and never will or . . . well, you get the point. Mr. Aguirre's latest ambient work might not completely alleviate the commute, but it'll certainly help - liquid analog synths, echoing arpeggios, and nothing grating or intrusive to spoil the vibe. Good stuff - a bit more interpretation of the melody/chords would've pushed it into "great" territory, but it still comes recommended.

Ah, so you're like that 1 person who dislikes every awesome YouTube video. :-)

This song alone survived throughout the years. It is...
"Hauntingly empathetic". Yes.

While the combination feels a little awkward and panicky, it is pulled off successfully and retains some of its foggy laid back nature.
Also some of the synths feel odd and out of place, but in the end, this is still a very solid and highly recommended remix

bLiNd did a fantastic job with this song. A very good aquatic atmosphere, great sound and a great arrangement.

There seems to be something really beautiful appearing in the electric background toward the end... you know? The part that fades away...
It would have been nice to hear more of that. Great work lad.
