We loved newcomer Eric Jadi's debut mix, so we emailed him back and asked him for a bit of background info. He writes:

"My name is Eric Jadi. I'm 30 years old and I am Dutch. From a young age my life has been revolving around music and computers. I've played the piano since I was 4, studied for a few years at the Amsterdam conservatory (classical piano) before I decided that I didn't have the proper motivation. I've always been a game enthusiast although I never really got into consoles (my first console is my Wii!). Instead I grew up with my C64, MSX, an A500 and later and A1200. After that it's been PC all the way for me.

I've always made my own music as a hobby. Started out improvising on the piano, then I got into synthesizers and computing. In the past I've done my share of tracking (on the Amiga), MIDI sequencing. Nowadays I just use my PC, Cakewalk Sonar, a slew of VSTs, an Audiofire ASIO external audio interface and a MIDI controller keyboard.

Although I remember playing Marvel vs Capcom in the arcade a few times I mostly played it on my PC and I've always loved the Chun Li and Morrigan themes. Especially the Chun li theme I thought was pretty clever, creating nice harmonies around a restricted melody. If it's received well, I might think of making some more, it's been fun."

I added all those links in there myself, by the way; please click on them and legitimate my existence. This is essentially also a Street Fighter II mix, since Chun-Li's theme from MvC is an arrangement of the original, but the vs. theme is what inspired Eric, and we're glad it did. Mr. Jadi slowed the source down to create a funkier groove and really capitalized on a deep, moving bass line and round, solid dance groove. There's a break halfway through where I was a little afraid things were just gonna loop verbatim, but the second iteration has a nice sans-drum passage followed by a oscillator-sync'd lead synth solo, so crisis averted.

Really accessible, enjoyable Chun-Li mix with solid production - what's not to like? Great work from veteran gamer Eric Jadi, who reminds me of my own age with his bio rife with vintage computer gaming. Of couse, I had a Commodore 128, which had TWICE the memory of the C64 - a whopping eighth of a megabyte! Good times, back then, and good times now; here's hoping we hear more like this from Eric!

Chun Li's theme has never been my favorite of the bunch from SF, but you did a great job giving it a completely different taste. I like it a lot, especially the new harmonies you gave to it, particularly that sweet bass line at around 0:40. I really hope you put some more mixes out this year, I like what I hear!

This is one of those mixes I find myself listening to once in the morning, realizing it's stuck in my head, and then replaying countless times to help me get through the work day. Love it, great arrangement and choice of instruments. Great work Eric!

Wonderful arrangement; the new elements improve on the original in many ways.

Awesome.

I love the groove this song lays down. Most awesome! I especially enjoyed the section from 2:02 to 2:35 :) .

Cool sounds and a solid arrangement make this one pretty sweet. It really takes the Chun Li theme and updates it. Great use of effects too. :-)

Hott damn this is nice. Reminds of mv. Love the musical ideas and execution. The spacing of different motifs in the stereo field really gives this mix some vibrant sonic moments.

wow, this is awesome. I hope we hear more from you :o

I love the daft punk-esque synths, they blend so perfectly with the oriental instruments. very nice work :nicework:

:nicework:A+ must listen. Very light, smooth, great transition, oriental (japanese style), has a touch of hip-hop-ish like element. Doesn't stand out being loud or soft, so to say, absolute mellow and relaxing. :puppyeyes:
