Our first ReMix of Mirror's Edge comes from Sir_NutS, who offers up a tasty trance treatment of the OTHER "Still Alive," which was ALSO a triumph/huge success:
"This is a ReMix of Mirror's Edge "Still Alive" song. I decided to take a progressive trance route with this one, taking inspiration from the stuff Hybrid, Sasha and others were doing in the late 90s/early 00s. The focus on the genre is mostly on keeping a really cool ambiance with synths that never remain static and cool breakbeats, so I think I got close to the mark here.
This was done for the People's Remix Competition #242, and if this gets posted I wish you guys could plug it somehow, because this competition has been running for years now and it's one of the main reasons I get to mix new songs, and kudos to Bundeslang for keeping it running all this time. As always, made in Reason, and the synths are of my own making. :) Enjoy!"
Many great mixes have come out of the PRC; kudos definitely deserved, and BONUS kudos for perseverance. Chimpazilla writes:
"Cool stuff! I do hear the Sasha influence, he's one of my favorite trance artists. I like how you converted this vocal track to pure instrumental and still kept the vibe."
"Good energy throughout; the adaptation to an electronic piece was handled well, and I didn't even miss the vocals and lyrics, as awesome as Lisa Miskovsky's work in the original is."
Judges did note that the piano was a little stiff; it didn't bother me much as I took it to be emblematic of the target genre more than anything else. The reverberant sines remind me of The X-Files a bit, but the overall tone is dramatic/uplifting, and Mr. Molina does a good job conjuring an epic feel in a relatively brief 3'22". We tend to see more vocal adaptations of instrumental sources than vice versa, so that also makes this a bit of a novelty; I concur with the panel that NutS maintained the appeal of the original without the vocal line. It's taken awhile for an arrangement of this standout VGM "single" of sorts to be posted, but Sir_NutS has ensured that it was worth the wait!
