Before today, we only had ONE Mega Man 8 mix on the whole site, from way back in 2001. Here to address this grave octal injustice is none other than James Joyner, perhaps better known as Jewbei:
"This remix came to be all because of Jade we were talking over AIM one day and she showed me this track. The moment i heard it i knew i had to do it. Jade also mentioned that this was one of her favorite tracks from that game so i gave it a shot and this was the result. Enjoy the track Jade this one is for you! I guess you can say this came from the heart thanks mother goose and always remember chin up look above the clouds."
Man, y'all are some upbeat, encouraging folks! I'm glad James was inspired, and I can hear why - this is definitely a source tune what needed some love, and the resultant electronica arrangement is solid & enjoyable. Mr. OA writes:
"Production is sick as usual on this, you've really stepped up your game the last few years, dude, no crits there at all. The arrangement has a lot of nice little references to the source, and at first I thought it was a little on the liberal side, but as I listened, it was more obvious that there were hints and snippets of the melody and recognizable backing parts throughout. Nice builds and breaks, and even though it's more of a club style ending, intended to be mixed with other tracks rather than a radio edit style that OCR prefers, it's pretty solid stuff."
Vinnie was clearly "judgin' hungry":
"Your production has really taken off recently, Jewbei - this is smooth as butter. I like the lead sounds a lot, they're interesting without being ostentatious. Sometimes I see trance as a layer cake, and in this one, all the delicious layers of chocolate, frosting, and cake are working together to make something yummier than the individual parts."
We don't call him the Indian Betty Crocker for nothing; sums it up good, though - not much to complain about! There's a lot of great music buried in "Those Other Mega Man Games" that needs to be mined by like-minded artists, and I'm glad James has given MM8 another day in the sun!
