OCR01835 - Top Gear 2 "Dance Nation"

Recommended Posts

Great right from the start. Seriously, I expected this to be good and it's kind of ridiculous that you know when you hear the first drum hit.. I didn't actually expect such a snare sound! Great sounds overall, very balanced and pleasant to listen to.

This is like Ferry Corsten meets bLiNd right here!

I wish I knew the source tune so I could have a better understanding of where it comes from, but frankly, it doesn't even matter. I feel like I'm listening to one of Ferry's old System F tracks (like 'Out of the Blue') vs. one of Ferry's LEF tracks (like 'Beautiful') vs. bLiNd (Duh)...wow.

This is sooo sick dude...

I want to dedicate this one to Darkesword for being so thoughtful, organizing a super metroid get well remix project, and everyone finishing it in 3 weeks time, thats truly remarkable and I dont think anything like that has been done for anyone on ocremix before.

Aw, thanks man. :)

Awesome awesome mix.

Whoa. As mentioned before, I knew this was going to be awesome with that first sound. Keeps me nodding my head to the beat, and the sound overall is just incredible. Great 80's feel to it. Great production, don't miss this one!

I was like, searching, but couldn't find, and then got frustrated about. . a melody. Then a buildup, and I'm like, where's this going? And then 1:59, and I'm like: WOW HOLY S*** and now I LOVE this mix.

Makes me dance.

I'm actively trying to get out of my pesky habit of only listening to mixes of games that I recognize and figured a mix by bLiNd would be a good place to start.

Amazing. I haven't even finished listening to it and can already tell you it's amazing. Very, very catchy, and I noticed that it isn't conventional bLiNd, either (conventional bLiNd is good, too; it's just great to see him moving out of his own comfort zone). If you love electronic music, download now. If you don't like electronic music, download now and learn to love it - bLiNd will be your instructor.

Jordan was kind enough to send this my way well before showing it off at MAGFest this year. He puts forth his spin on Top Gear 2 in a style that's partly his own and partly in the same vein as trance as when it started to move in the early 2000s. Great work here. Dance music fans shouldn't pass this one up. Very easy on the ears and a pleasant dance track all around.

Now if only we'll get to DJ for the next MAGFest...

This mix is absolutely huge. I've been listening to it since MAG and that's all I can say about it. bLiNd is a master producer who's absolutely on the top of the heap when it comes to electronic dance music. Loved dancing to this!

Production is great, don't like the music though... this type of Trance sound more or less originates from my country (Holland) and I've never liked it, nor do I like the crowd who dances to it.

That said, production's great and I do like some other stuff from blind, like the awesome Temple Trance, an OC remix classic.

This is another remix that came out from my unfinished Top Gear 2 Remix Project (Along with Rayza's awesome remix). There were going to be only a few songs on it, and this was one of the strongest of the pack. Needless to say, it's bLiNd, so you know it's going to be awesome.

Now I need to get off my lazy ass and finish the remix I had prepared for the project so I can get it posted as well.

This is some good listenin' here bois!

I have to say I really like the vocal hits in this monster of a mix. They really add some unique flavor to bLiNd's already fantastic repertoire of electronic music skills.

Sweet stuff. Sold.
