Avaris! We last saw Shaun almost exactly a year ago, with his own take on 'Corridor of Time' - a ReMixing "rite of passage" of sorts, and a job well done on his part. For this BC:OWG track, he conjures an upbeat, heavy-hitting electro vibe that's got a modern aesthetic but the energy & spirit of some classic 1980's jams, not unlike New Order. Plenty of percussive synth/sound fx dot the landscape as a massive, bulbous synth bass pulses underneath:
"I vaguely remember as a child watching my older brother play Bionic Commando. As a young kid, I thought it was one of the coolest games I had ever seen. The retractable arm... enough said. I have worked with Brandon before on other projects and enjoyed the chance to work with him again. His consistency and dedication makes participating in this project a no-brainer. I hope my track captured the 8-bit era and feeling of the original game. I wanted to create a fun track that captured the soul and feeling of the game."
BS got some definite project management skills, as this & prior albums have clearly shown - nice of Shaun to throw him some well-deserved props. This mix has a lot of spunk in its step, actually gets a little funky here and there, and is generally an accessible & FX-laden romp. There are so many choice euphemisms one could make about "holding" one's "weapon" that, as with the retractable arm... enough said. Great stuff from Avaris that features a more uniformly electronic aesthetic than his previous mixes but is every bit as creative & enjoyable!

I love the way this track builds from a rather atmospheric pad layer to percussive bass to full-on wubwub mode. The overall soundscape is very lively with new FX being introduced steadily until the main melody comes in. The breakdown brings the atmospheric feel back in before a well arranged bridge takes us back into the beat proper. The outro may have hung around for perhaps a little too long but that's most likely just personal preference. Overall a solid electro track.

I feel like I’m hearing something Yuzo Koshiro composed in this remix. It’s a little laid back, but it isn’t so slow that it bores me halfway through the track. Groovy, and kind of dark. But in a fun way.

I wonder, why this mix has only 1 review? It's so cool. Groovy and hard-hitting, with some nice wubwubwubs throughout the mix. Nice work.

Interesting synth work here. Definitely has a unique sound that I can get behind, and with this kind of electro mix, the FX help it shine. Not bad, Avaris.
