Not to be confused with Dain's 'Ace of Space' Guardian Legend mix, bLiNd gives us his latest trance opus from Gradius III, 'Space Ace' - he writes:
"I have a childhood attachment to the music of Gradius, especially number 3 on the SNES. It's got such an uplifting and spacey sound to it. It really fit the game amazingly well. I actually developed this remix a few years ago and finally got off my butt and completed it before MAGFEST 7 (started the set with it). I went for an old school Ferry Corsten vibe, and used the JP8080 again for the lead hook. It starts off with the intro from the game and goes into departure to space and has a great vibe to it. Hope you enjoy it, this game dont get enough coverage."
Ever since I heard this from Jordan's set at MAG, I've been looking forward to posting it here. I'm definitely feelin' his comments about the series' music - Gradius tunes always seemed very uplifting and joyous. Let's see: you're in a very small spacecraft, facing innumerable alien hordes solely intent on your destruction, the odds are against you, but damn if you'll let THAT get you down - it's time for major-key synth power-anthems! You can't even hear your ship's emergency signals or use your finely tuned auditory sense to detect the spatial relationships of your foes, but it doesn't matter, because you've got major-key synth power anthems, and - as we've all learned from countless Macross series - in space warfare, that's all that counts. Death Star ain't got nothing on Lynn Minmay.
But I digress; this being bLiNd, trance, and Gradius, all rolled up into one neat little package, there's not too much else left to say. It's a little more old school and a little more unabashedly upbeat than some of Jordan's other mixes, but in all other regards it's got the same energy, the same silky smooth trance production aesthetic, and the same overall seal of quality. Great stuff.

If I had to criticise one thing, I'd say that the breakdown at 2:08 sounds kinda generic and dull.
