you need these :P)

Remix Name: "The Tragic Drowning of Heat Man"

So this was my Round 3 remix for this year's Grand Robot Master Remix

Battle, headed by Darkesword. In this round I was pitted against

Sir_NutS; unfortunately he didn't have enough free time to fully

complete his mix (which featured really unique vocals by Mae).

This mix was pretty heavily inspired by Deadmau5 and Pendulum's "The

Island." There's even a chord progression in there which is very

similar to that of the verse progression of "The Island."

There's not really that much to say about the mix lol, so I'll

conclude this subscription email with a quote describing the feel of

the mix from easily the best spoken voter of the GRMRB, Helios42:

"1:02 - 1:07 was great buildup with Heat Man. 1:48 - 2:18 had an epic,

lively beat as heat man 'swam' aka fight back against his fate, but

then he started to sink. 2:35 was a great re-entry of heat man, and

pretty tragic feeling with the bubble man follow up from 2:48 until

the end."

The name itself was more of an afterthought (it was originally named

"Heat Man's Bubble Bath", lol).

Alright, that's it from me. Hope you guys dig!

That kick has some serious smack. I love the shimmer on the bell synths. The arrangement is great. I'm going to preempt Larry here and point out that the B-section here is a recognizable if rather liberal melodic reinterpretation of the B-section of the source, and not original writing.

This is a pretty easy pass.

I feel like the ending was a bit abrupt, but I was definitely feeling this arrangement. The production was solid, with nice synths and a good balance, and some really cool additions. I would have liked to have heard a little more Bubble Man theme overall, but this is very solid work.
