Part of my love for this ReMix's title comes from the fact that I thought of it; Dan was blank and I suggested this and he was cool with it. I'm actually a bit miffed now because I can't use it for my own purposes, but sharing is caring or so they say. Beyond a snappy mix title, this is a GREAT ReMix - instant classic. It incorporates the best elements of Dan's style with a flair for the dramatic, a satisfying degree of length and variation, and some infectious beats. It takes its own sweet time to get going, introing with a pad swelll and a bell/clarinet statement of the verse melody in a tense, mysterious atmosphere, with bass pizzicato hinting at the bassline to come, then the beat filters its way in at the first minute mark, the bass gets goin', and at 1'22" some slick brass stabs join the fray. Main synth verse melody comes in at 1'35" with a nice gulpy analog lead with a lovely filter envelope. There's then what I'd call an extended bridge with some fast arpeggios and string stabs leading up to the GREAT main event at 2'40", where majestic orchestra stabs really let loose. The whole thing is watertight, with sequencing that keeps the beat right on top of things. It's not too easy to queue up orchestral with techno this tightly, with this many rapid, repeating patterns, and that's where this mix really shines - couldn't have been done any other way, and Dan pulled it off without exception. Love the percussion solo tradeoffs at 4'20", which leads into an alternate, retro drumset being layered in on top of the heavier kit and the mix going back into the verse. This is a 7'22" ReMix, people, and not only is the encoding ace, but you're gonna love all 7+ minutes. Dan's style screams for a varied melody of this strength, and while he's had great success with the Mega Man games, this particular track had his name written on it. Very addictive, amazingly well-architected, and in a word: tight.
