NEWCOMER ALERT!! Washudoll (Dihaz. M.H.) released an impressive Street Fighter 2010 album back in 2010 (a year that didn't end up being QUITE as futuristic as Capcom envisioned), and it's great to see him on OCR, contributing to MR with this high-energy synth-rock-orchestral hybrid track that's got sauce & style aplenty:
"In this remix, I wanted to recreate a scene where X inflitrates the central computer while being spotted and ambushed by the enemy. This all for saving his friend Zero from the clutches of the X-Hunters."
The mixed instrumentation on this track is REALLY well done - no single element or style is held back by the others, so you get full-on rock, some awesome horn-led orchestral lines, soaring synth solos, searing guitar leads, organ riffs, and even some well-placed choral elements, and it all jives well and handles transitions seamlessly. It's harder to mix something like this and get the levels & separation right, and harder to still to then incorporate as many breakdowns, dynamics, and changeups as the artist has, but he pulls it off with style. Wes writes:
"Washudoll goes all out on this take on Magna Centipede, managing to capture a sense of urgency throughout the song without using a fast tempo. It’s hard for me to explain just how strong this song is because it is one of those songs that manages to be full of diversity in ways you don’t see too often yet completely dominated by the source. I think this track may become an instant favorite for some out there!"
For an OCR debut, this is particularly excellent, since it shows the artist can: 1. Rock 2. Incorporate solid orchestral components 3. Create very dynamic, elaborate arrangements. That's a badass trifecta, but all that really matters in the end is that the mix is enjoyable & tells the story that the artist wanted it to, and I think this gets a big check mark in both of those categories. Great debut from Washudoll and another gem from MR!

This is more than badass. It's extremely awesome in all ways. One of the best ReMixes that incorporates orchestral elements. I think it can easily fit some epic movie.

That intro with the "emergency alert" voice was so well done, you can just picture a break-in at a high tech facility perfectly. Both this and the other track on the album that Washudoll has done take the sources to another level easily and the combination of orchestra and rock makes for a very exciting ReMix. Lots of energy and makes great use of every part of the source, which is cool. Awesome ReMix of Magna Centipede, Washudoll!

I absolutely love this mix - the arrangement remains fresh throughout and varies greatly while focusing on the Magna Centipede source. I think Washudoll knocks this one out of the park with the arrangement and it remains as a favorite from Maverick Rising for me due to the strength of arrangement. My main gripe is that I feel it ends too quickly .
Love Washudoll's work on the album and it really showcases his skill.

This is so well crafted. I'm especially impressed by the effective use of the orchestral instruments. Often when orchestral samples are used they just.....well, don't sound that great. Here, though, they are used to expert effect. DJP sums up the use of different styles here. Very well done. Its like no single element had to be sacrificed. I could go on at how amazingly well the different aspects are done here, but to put it simply, I love it and so should everyone else.......in my humble opinion that is

This mix gets the adrenaline going. The vocal clip at the beginning is used to great effect, and the song just keeps driving forward from there, showcasing the anxiety of the situation that inspired Washudoll. I think he really knocked it out of the park on this album, and both of his tracks are definitely a couple of my favorite remixes on the project, and possibly some of my favorite remixes of all time. Just astounding work from Dihaz!

Most of the album is great, but this one is awesome. A super motivator when I hit the gym and run to work because the bus does not run after five where I live, since its been out. Awesome job.

Don't forget his killer studio chops.
ZING! *listens to the sound of noone laughing*
Anyway, amazing song. Definitely one of my favorites on the site.

OA you suck
This is a fantastic mix. Love it love it love it

This is one of my favorite tracks from the album. Amazing job! I agree, I really like how the song has a sense of urgency without needing a breakneck tempo. Great incorporation of the rock orchestral elements, it sounds completely natural and fitting. The cheesy vocal clips in the beginning are fun too . Washudoll's other MR track is amazing too!
