This is Concrete Man's DAY, here on OCR. I hope he's enjoying it, because I think it's fairly safe to say, barring a Capcom decision to create an entire spinoff series featuring him, that the odds of us ever being in a position to post two mixes of this theme, back-to-back, are rather low. It's a solid source tune, don't get me wrong, but Shariq & co. have given it the special attentions primarily due to its exclusion from Back in Blue, so these mixes and the EP they came from are almost like a musical olive branch... of fictitious sorts. In addition to making peace with Mr. Man, DarkeSword's managed to bring Sir NutS, aka Michael Molina, out of the woodwork for another mix - his first in six years! The ReMixer writes:
"Well, It's obvious I tried to go with the 80's Laserdance/Koto feel while adding a bit of New Order there, but I decided I should make it sound retro in a NES retro kind of way, so that's when I added all the squarewave goodness and it all mixed together very well."
If Flexstyle's vision of Concrete Man as a 90's-era Euroraver was too modern for you, Sir NutS has gone back further, to the land of spandex and McDLTs, appropriately keeping the cool side cool & the hot side hot in the process. Tempo's a bit slower, you've got the obligatory octave-jumpin' bassline, and then some really sweet, spiralling synth leads that seal the deal. I love the isolated cymbal crash ending, boldly exposing the single percussive element and just kinda saying, "Yeah, I'm gonna end this one with a single, relatively thin, retro-style cymbal crash - you gotta problem with that??" (w/ Tony Soprano accent, for no thematically relevant reason.) Great, resurgent work from Molina, who's polished things up in the half-decade since his last work, but still has a knack for catchy electronica renditions of solid melodies.
