Last but never least, we've got Sixto Sounds' first posted ReMix of 2011! A lot of Juan's work has been tied up in album projects, so as they are released, expect him to reascend to his throne of prolific, guitar-centric rockstalgia and return to circa-2008/2009 levels of ass kickage. Juan writes:
"My second track for the Mega Man 9 project. This was actually a track I had planned on dropping but at the very last minute decided to give it a go. I wanted a kind of anime-intro-song feel and I'm pretty happy with it."
As well he should be; in addition to the trademarks of a Sixto rock track - screamin' leads, heavy chugs, poundin' drums, blazin' solos, and satisfyingly full production - Juan tinkers with the EQ on the drums during the intro and later on, thinning them out considerably for effect. Yeah, it's not a super-advanced, gee-whizz trick, but it's the type of detail that gives that extra something to his already rock-solid foundations. OA writes:
"Great solo, cool additional bridge section, and overall it rocks a lot. When I first heard the source I actually thought "This sounds like something Sixto should remix". Since apparently Sixto is reading my mind to take requests, do some FFMQ stuff next, please."
"Love the energy that Sixto always brings to his tracks. Guitar work is the highlight here - love the tone and fantastic performance. Drum work is also super solid here. Arrangement doesn't take a big detour from the original, but he's taken his own tack on the progression and brought regular (awesome) sixto performance flourishes."
Awesome track from a surprisingly diverse & unsurprisingly impressive album; kudos to Sixto for finally breaking into 2011 (with style), all the artists responsible for making Back in Blue what it is, and k-wix for seeing everything through to the end!
