Super Meat Boy

Mr. Rival succinctly writes:

"mAEt b0y is the name of the track on the original album. It was named by Danny B himself. *shrug*"

Indeed. Of course, said mix title makes more sense when you factor in Alex's previously preferred moniker, AE, a name that should ring bells made of pure awesome for anyone familiar with his works on OCR & elsewhere. This ReMix, also included on the upcoming special edition of the Super Meat Boy soundtrack which will be released on Monday, combines his larger-than-life, heavy hitting electronica with some really interesting, mangled choir samples that give things an epic, melodramatic flavor. There are plenty of crazy transitions & changeups, a rolling acoustic piano line, huge synth basses, and general sonic mayhem.

Is there more to say? It's A_Rival ReMixing Danny Baranowsky, it's hot, get it, enjoy it... wash, rinse, repeat. Awesome stuff; keep your eyes, ears, & meat on the lookout for the special edition OST release in three days!

Like a lot of ameri-dubstep this is a bit constantly full-on with no dynamic changes, leaving the listener exhausted and not pleasantly surprised. Ergo: more dynamic contrast (in terms of both instrumentation and volume dynamics) would've been useful.

Confession: I listen to this only for those electronic/guttural/reptilian voices that go "eye, eye" starting at 0:44 (and to a lesser extent, the squeaky/meat grinder-wrangling followers at 0:46-0:47 and elsewhere).
Not that the rest of the mix doesn't stand out. Positive: I like how the piano sounds both delicate and sinister. Negative: some of the volume swells and wilts, while they definitely add to the chaotic atmosphere, are a bit uncomfortable for my ears.
Still, something about those alien vocals makes me think I'm looking into the paranoid mind of Meat Boy (I mean, he DOES have a jelly-like lower right eyelid and an Alfred E. Neuman grin. What's not to take away from that?). The surrounding insanity in this mix is like a perfect complement to the vocals.

Yowza! Uh... yowzer! This is a relentlessly awesome flexing of production muscle. Nails the spooky vibe on center, but it's kind of hard to notice with so many amazing things going on left, right, on top of and underneath.
No matter where you look, you're going to be impressed. This mix is crazily expert. Not used to THESE levels of electronica craftsmenship around here. It makes everything else seem... underpowered.

Oooh, nice change of pace! The ghastly choir and piano that slides right into evil aggresive wubs and hard hitting beats....that was one of the best intros I've heard in a while. The ReMix is like a dancing chainsaw, that's how gritty it sounds. Yep, dancing chainsaw. That's how I describe it. Damn, I do love a dirty mix every now and then, and this is one dirty mix.

This track sounds downright evil. Absolutely great.
Love the piano, too. Most of the time, it makes for a creepy atmosphere, but sometimes, when it plays something like a jingle on its very own, it lightens the mood considerably (e.g. at 3:00).

Wow, the synthwork for this was balls to the wall. Awesomely mixed. Love it!

Damn, this lives up to its name because it is meaty indeed. Didn't think such an aggressive punchy sound like this would be attempted for OCR, much less direct posted. I want to drop this in a DJ set so badly.
KICK, SNARE, it's unbelivable.

Yeah, I was gonna say this has a sound hugely reminiscent of Noisia, but it looks like others have already pointed it out for me though ;-) I will second the motion though, that this is right up there with a lot of professional-grade D&B I've been hearing lately.
Unbelievably good mix :-D

yes, and yes. I hear Noisia all over the place with some fidgety Skrillex in there for good measure.
Awesome tune all around.
A+++ would listen again

Is it just me, or has the bar for electronica at OCR just been RAISED SKY HIGH? It's about freaking time someone did that! Killer work--one of the most cohesive and punchy mixes, especially electronic, I've heard in a while here. While I'm unfamiliar with the source (I know, I'm a horrible person), this is a completely face-meltingly-awesome mix. Kudos. Plus, it's reminiscent of some of my favorite artists, namely Skrillex and Noisia. :-D
