Very slick. While the placement of the respective words "zero" and "cool" so close together makes me recall the beautiful trainwreck that is Hackers and thus conjures desires to "hack" the "gibson" and complain about the "trashing" of my "rights", I shall refrain... Newcomer Dragonlord, hailing from Norway, makes an impressive debut with a techno groove jam chock full' o nifty aliased electronic synth textures that also incorporates some very tasty organisms (of the tonewheel variety) and reminds me of the funky first stage theme from Shinobi more than any Mega Man piece I've heard. The ReMixer writes:
"Recently I got myself a GBA, and I purchased the game MegaMan Zero 2 along with it, and while playing it, one of the songs was sorta just screaming "Reeeemix meeeeeee!" to me. I scurried over to the computer, and started working on it. I think there's around 7-8 hours of work put into this song, and personally I'm rather satisfied with how it turned out. The song itself is a mixture of a synth-organ, distorted synths and a healthy dose of drums to go with it, the whole thing mixed together with a little sense of rhythm, sprinkled with a few details here and there. Best served at high volume. Enjoy."
And satisfied he should be. At just over three minutes, the mix has a good amount of variety, solid production, a different and highly funkdafied sound due to some lo-fi synth elements which are discretely panned for optimal contrast, and the afforementioned organ which adds a less synthetic vibe and spreads the jam out a bit. I think Shariq comes closest to being the panel's resident Mega Man fanboy, so I'll let him exude a bit:
"Oh man oh man oh man. Awesome. Ice Brain is like the best track in the whole game; this remix TOTALLY does it justice too. Really tight beat + synth integration. Ridiculously groovy (omgbias). It follows the general progression of the original, but all of the parts are sufficiently tricked out for maximum enjoyment and variation."
But don't just take his word for it - the rest of the panel concurred, with Larry describing it as a "chill lil' number" and Wingless describing Dragonlord as "another great 'mixer who has an ear for the picoscopic details". So, basically, if this mix were a DVD, there'd be plenty of endorsements from names you can (hopefully) trust, right smack dab on the cover, instead of just vague promises of special features and single-word exclamatory quotes from "some guy who likes movies and what not" - programming and sequencing are tight, and while Larry in my mind correctly points out that a bit more could have been done percussively, I'm just pleased to hear this sort of variety of foreground synths integrated with organ. Dragonlord certainly has an ear for timing, and it shows right off the bat with this enjoyable MMZ2 mix that should have a very broad appeal.
