Mega Man X: Maverick RisingMega Man X

Less than 800 likes to go!! We're almost there... Sigma is almost felled to the might of our collective efforts, and Maverick Rising is almost upon us! We need to galvanize the peeps for one last push down the homestretch, and so our second & last preview mix - a groovy, gritty house/electronica MMX arrangement from bLiNd - seems completely appropriate. Jordan writes:

"This track was interesting. I did the remix originally because I was aiming for some prize money when Bahamut did the contest, haha. Jade and I were struggling financially, so I tried out. I got second place, so I was pretty happy about it! Only thing, I wasn't happy with how it turned out production/mix-wise, so I made some final improvements for the project. I took a pretty dark, gritty track and made something pretty housey out of it and it's got some fun basslines. Vile is too serious... he needs to galvanize."

Hmmmm.... too serious, needs to galvanize... so relevant ;) Really fun & funky mix from bLiNd; at first I thought it was going to be more of a wub affair, with a darker, dubsteppier orientation, but I'm glad things picked up & put a little more dance in the pants with an upbeat groove - works really well for the source. We almost take it for granted now when we see "bLiNd" next to a ReMix, but production quality, texture, impact, variety, dynamics, and all that other good stuff is spot on - as MR Director Wesley Cho writes:

"Jordan goes all out with this dark slower dance of a battle with Vile. It is full of tension that a bigger and badder plot is in the shadows waiting to get unleashed. The amount of work put into this is pretty clear, setting the stage for the future as well as giving us a fun song to bounce around to - Jordan is truly a master at his craft."

Ditto that, and not much else to say - more greatness from bLiNd, an excellent companion to Dr. Manhattan's other amazing preview mix, and another compelling reason to get excited & chip in for the 27,000 Facebook likes milestone & subsequent release of the full, delicious enchilada!

So dark, so gritty, yet so tasty. While a lot of tracks from MR are guitar-driven madness, this track is still my favorite from this album. The meaty beat here combined with awesome synths, almost screaming guitars and it works 100% fine. Love that transition at 1:52, which actually leads to my most favorite part of this mix. Pretty moody stuff, very good.

Fitting name. Exactly what I think of while listening to this.

Dark. Gritty. Good blend of synths. Overall enjoyable, though, I had some trouble getting through the business in the first minute.

bLiNd never disappoints, and this is no exception.

Nice work man!

Well, this was an unexpected take on the source. I will be honest in that it took me a second play through to really get it in my head, but now that it's there, it'll be there for a while. The dark overtones of this ReMix just fills this house beat with sinister intentions. Evil and gritty, but with a sweet groove. Nicely done, sir.

Very very nice work here. I've been getting more into house/trance electronica lately, so this is right down my alley. I love the overall atmosphere and groove. Great job!

I feel like an upbeat arrangement would suit a bit better than laid back trance, but I still dig it. 3:08 reminds me of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, which was completely facking awesome, and I kinda NEED to play it now. I know where my next remix is coming from after the WWRR :D

PS: I got my brother absolutely hooked on OCR recently. I can hear halc's "The Forest that Never Sleeps" blaring from his room. Mission accomplished :)

Yeah baby! I LOVE how gritty this is, really captures the feel of a boss theme but simultaneously works as a bad-ass club tune, I would stand this up against any of the great EDM artists out there any day. Great stuff as usual from bLiNd!

I love the vibe Jordan is going for here - he did an excellent job converting Vile into a house mix. Got nothing but love for the amount of effort Jordan clearly put into this song, it is stellar all around!
