I've been meaning to go through all of Binster's older remixes ever since I heard 'Poltergeist Mix' and man...off to a good start so far.

Tons of awesome things about this mix. The buildup to the end is perfect, just like it was in Poltergeist Mix. Loved the use of reverse samples too. Can't wait to hear the rest of your stuff.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! Every section and every transition is incredible. What's truly amazing to me is how the ICO feeling is kept throughout the remix, since the raw energy makes this the veritable antithesis of the somber source tune. The more I listen, the more I find Castle In The Mist... nearly every layer seems to be working with a piece of the original, just drastically altering it to work within the mix. Wildly creative. Gets me pumped every time.

I wish the explosion at 2:56 (and following section) were made a couple decibels higher; more oomph would have capitalized on the transition. Everything else, of course, is fantastic.

Some awesome effects and transitions really drew me into this one. I'm unfamiliar with the source song, but there is a lot of really interesting stuff going on, so either there is some nice melodic material to work with, of you created your own. Really interesting throughout, and great pacing. I could jam to this one all day.

Really good stuff, check it out. :-)

If this mix was a piece of land, it would be a dynamic mountain range with many jagged cliffs and impossibly high peaks, but also enough greenery and smooth terrain to keep me hiking on. There are many times when I'm awed, emotionally uplifted, or just plain giddy as I marvel at the off-the-wall textures, effects, and segues. So certainly the high notes, the WTF break at 1:55-2:15, the creepy volume build at 2:51, and the wall of sound afterwards are right up my alley.

A lively pastiche.
