Not quite 2003 just yet, but why not celebrate early with a Gecko Yamori ReMix of the Mega Man 3 intro? I wasn't getting the best vibe off the first thirty seconds of this, as the cool, somewhat jazzy intro felt a little lifeless in comparison to, say, the cool guitar rendition offered by Project X. Honestly, I think it was the pseudo-violin sound used that turned me off. But the intro just serves as a jumping off point for an otherwise solid technotrance piece with a robotic bass, kick-snare four-on-the-floor drums, and saw-synth lead melody. There's a gritty, FMish lead synth around 2'00" that's got a nice, aggressive attack and lends some timbral variety to the picture. There's also some good electro-toms going on which help alleviate the repetitive (but slammin') nature of the rhythm track at large. A good piece from Gecko - in the past, he's covered some more obscure material that I prefer because it's a bit more individualized and stylized, but as a straightforward techno MM3 mix, this is workin' too. Check it out.
On a side note, I think it's hilarious that Dave called this an obscure piece :lol: .

Pretty much a classic; I hope no one passes this one up because it's old... it's old school, so go out and download it :).

Rockin and a great original theme.

But then the mix busts out and it doesn't matter as much.
It's not bad electro-dance, but I don't particularly care for it.

Opened in a very touching mood. Some sad violins, a quiet piano and a bass to accompany them, and then BANG the remix shoots out like a bullet and starts the real deal here, techno at full velocity. I can´t help it to think of the original, that synth sounds awfully familiar. Since I loved the track before I found this site, so it doesn´t bother me so much. But I liked the part that proceeded afterwards, it moved slowly but safely into trancemode with that very typhical but oh so lovable synth that´s so typhical for it. Very good variation to the remix, and the synth that then followed didn´t bother me.
To come to a conclusion, very cool remix with plenty of different synths, with nice drums and beats to fulfill the perfectionism of this piece. It really draws out the fastpaced spirit of the original, although many remixes has already done it, but it does it in its own unique way, the Gecko Yamori way!
Awesome to the max!

However, I didn't like so much from that "main instrument change" at 1:53. It didn't sound that cool anymore because it wasn't so "smooth and continuous".
But still this is one of my favorite remixes at ocremix. 8)

EDIT: I take that back. Stupid laptop speakers getting in the way of Dan's greatness... You're still cool though. :)
Truly a work of art, this was one of the first mixes I've ever had but never got around to rating it.

Like I told Disco Dan, a really good Megaman remix IS a work of art. It's not something that can just be thrown together. If you've read my other reviews, you've probably gotten the sense that I'm really really picky, especially when it comes to pieces that are really complicated to mix. But this is really well done.
I, for one, love the intro. It's the appropriate way to set up the rest of the song, and once it serves its purpose, the piece really takes off. Again, well done.
And btw... don't listen to the philistines that say "this has been overdone". There's no such thing.
