GOODNESS, the FUNK. MR might be heavy on the rock/metal, which makes sense given the driving nature of most of the source tunes, but there's plenty of variety, and you can count on Diggi Dis to bring it when it comes to blending rock with jazz, funk, and soul; just the bassline ALONE here, an obese-yet-nimble fretless... so awesome. Intro EP is smoov, funk rhythm guitar is sexy as hell, and - what's that at 1'23"?? Could it be a mind-blowing wah clavinet solo? Yes, and you've been served. Frank writes:
"Another attempt at some funky ass arranging. Had a lot of fun remixing this song, also because of somewhat strange section switches. This will probably also be my last arrangement for a while. Hope you guys will enjoy it!"
Also, HEY AQUALUNG!!, Ron Burgundy shows up circa 2'44" for some JAZZ FLUTE, and for several moments we are ALL collectively Christina Applegate. If this is truly DD's last mix for awhile, then that makes me cry funky tears of groove, but he's definitely going out with some serious style. Wes C. writes:
"Frank has been putting out some crazy stuff lately, which you’ve seen with the likes of his Heroes vs. Villains track, his Wild ARMS track, and here with his jazzy take on Zero Stage 2 from Mega Man X5 - he has even more sexiness coming up as well! For those unfamiliar with the original track, go listen to it - it is a standard electronic dance-like track, but Frank has morphed it here to make it a lot more chill and fitting for a different type of dancing. Knowing the original really helps give you an appreciation for his work and this track is a shining example."
This mix is ridiculously good and even if it were released all by its lonesome, it would STILL be an epic day for the MMX series, but as part of the larger album, well... it drips with jam, is covered in butter, and makes the breadth & depth of Maverick Rising almost insultingly awesome. Truly diseased, infectious work from Frank, who is truly amazing.
