Vying for the title of 'most kickass megaman ReMixes' with AE is the gifted DiscoDan, who with this superlative Snakeman techno / dance track uses a variety of sounds, a tight groove, solid processing and mixing, and a 100% perfect ending that goes into ambient territory and really wraps things up nicely. A very hip disco-style moving bassline, synth dueling with what sounds a little like a koto, hyper bubbling backing patterns, and a very cool chromatic slide on the main melody at a couple points. Infectious and fun.

OCR classic material. If there was ever a 'remix retrospective' for the OCR 10 year anniversary, this or DD's bubbleman mix would be required on the list.
Great builds, clean production, pretty good samples that are well used, and well-chosen source music = something that lasts the test of time. Even the breakdown section with the 4 on the floor works because of the catchy bassline.

There are a lot of things going for this mix. Love the intro and the introduction of different parts. Loved the countermelodies done in square lead patch. Percussion track and bass aren't bad either... I DO hoped for a better patch for the main melody though. Thought the ones used (Synth Sitar and some wind instrument I believe?) were kind of weak for the lead melody.
Other than that, loved it.

I've yet to come across a song by Disco Dan that doesn't use the "additive and subtractive" methods of intro and ending in his songs. The additive also tends to be a lot more dragged out than the subtractive in his works most of the time. This remix is no exception, as it starts out with a simple beat, and slowly works its way into the full melody.
Snake Man's theme has always been one of the stranger ones out there from all the Mega Man games, but it's still catchy and enjoyable just like all the rest. Disco Dan gives this one a good do-over that keeps enough of the original feel that it could work in place of the original song.
This is one of those songs I've had for ages on this site and it has still survived the amount of songs I had to cut off my playlist (because my MP3 player only has 512MB which turned out to be about 512MB short of what I need. XD).
This is really a typical Disco Dan remix. It's a techno Mega Man remix with the additive intro and subtractive ending, coupled with a more subtle techno dance groove.
Personally I recommend that this is worth a listen to everyone. If you like it, that's good, if you don't like it, that's fine too. It's all a matter of personal taste.

I have to say, I really hated the sitar-like melody instrument at first, but the whole remix grew on me after a few listens and now it's one of my favorite pieces on the site. Great job.

This is a great facelift for snakeman. DD has kept that oriental feel and added some real nice beats and some real beautiful piano. Loved the finish, it was smooth and cool when the beats faded away one by one until only piano was left. I like that very much, ya?

Disco Dan's music rocks. This song is no exception. It's not my favorite by him, but it's still a great piece.

Yes. A good Remix.
Fine chemical inside this one. Creativity. Good sense on changing. The guy really knows how to use the effects wisely. The rythm and the beating got the atmosphere of the action game. Good job man! You surely made happy a lot of megaman 3 fans, also you! Hehehe!
I liked the mix. No bad news!

I'm not normally a fan of techno-ish remixes, but the main tune being done with a sitar just makes one rock. It's powerful in the right places, subtle in the right places, and just fits together really well.
The Snake Man theme from MM3 is one of the simpler tunes from the game. I'm amazed that Disco Dan has made a six minute song out of it that doesn't drag on. Very well done, 8/10. I'd give it a higher score, but it's not a jaw-dropper like several remixes on this site *cough-eutopia-pegasi-cough*

The best Snakeman remix to date. Style and variety on top of quality. I really dig the solo. Style style, download this.

This is one of the best remixes I ever heard. I made a top 5 list from remixes I have listen (more than 200 remixes from Megaman) and this song mades it to the 4th place. It's starting very good and continues very good too. I hope Disco Dan wants to make a lot of remixes from Megaman because I think he's the best remixer who's here at www.ocremix.org. He got a lot of more songs which are very good too (I also located songs in different sites), but this is the best one from him.

Someone else pointed this out not too long ago, actually, about the "on tour" midi on vgmusic.com. Now I knew that I hadn't copied my rendition from anyone else, so I had to see this other version. I downloaded the file, checked the submit date and the create date as listed. It's about a year later than my original midi. I'd be upset except that they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Y'know vgmusic has a On Tour remix of SnakeMan's theme and it sounds very similiar to this remix. I don't know if said MIDI is the same thing used for this but if it is, Disco Dan just went and took my favorite Megaman 3 MIDI and made it even better. Regardless, it gets 9.5/10.

This, and MetalMan Goes Clubbing, are among my top 10 most listened-to songs.
I love the ridiculous simplicity of this song, while simultaneously realizing that this is more than just a run-of-the-mill dance track.
Disco Dan has my respect. Thanks for a track I can listen to over and over.

Wow, all i can see is that Disco Dan is a genious. This, along with all of his other great Megaman remixes, deserves a medal. beautiful...
