"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!
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.

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.

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).

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
