"This was a remix I did as part of a duel started by Jewbei (challenging his biggest inspiration to a one on one) He chose this source and we battled it out. Don't think anyone decided on a winner but, I also played this as the second track to my set at Magfest 7. This song isn't featured in the video though. zircon came to me after the set saying this was an awesome remix that "would probably get direct posted, and should be submitted" This was one of the last true trancer tracks I developed before going all electro/progressive house on everyone. It has been finished for nearly 2 years, like the gradius mix. Jade finally got on me to submit it haha, so it here it is."

So it's bLiNd, it's trance, it's Chrono Trigger, and it's 'Yearnings of the Wind' (aka 'Wind Scene' or '600AD') - what more do I need to say? It's Friday, it's been a long week, and I'm gonna keep this writeup short & sweet since this should already appeal to everyone and their respective grandmas based on those factors alone. Thanks to Jordan, but also Jade for persuading her man to do the right thing!

Ah, nice, a thread to necro. Yet again I find myself listening to the 0 - 3000 torrent, minding my own business, when a tune pops in which makes my head go "oh, fuck yeah, there's some awesome trance! Who is this awesome DJ that gives me these tu... duh. Of course, it's bLiNd. Why'd I even bother looking".

In all seriousness, the pacing of this, combined with your almost trademark build-up and build-off for use in clubs, is amazing. It takes cues from the ruling class of the time, packs it into a nice Chrono Trigger package and drops it like a bomb. Highly enjoyable!

Excelent and It couldn't be different!

It's good to listen some trance sometimes, to escape of this wave of dubsteps.

Ah, yeah! Real trance that goes hard, just the way I like it. bLiNd knocks just about every ReMix out of the park, this one included. Hard beats that hit with force, some good breaks, solid and constant energy that puts a dancy feel on really can't go wrong when you have all the pieces in place. And something else that bLiNd does really well is the length of the track, which is perfect for trance. Great job.

Not posting here so often but I had to because of this remix. Best Chrono Trigger remix in years and since DreamofZeal (Which is btw one of my all time favorite remixes on this entire site).... by ofcourse the same mixer... Love it!

Nice. Very dancy. :D

I like this remix but only once the actual wind scene melody kicks in, before that it kind of drags out the intro without any real connection to the original song. Still a great remix and receives my thumbs up! :grin:

Reminiscent of the old days.

This. In my opinion, it's a bit too "reminiscent".

Don't get me wrong, the arrangement is really good, and production is, of course, pristine. However, the whole remix sounds so...old. Somehow, every single sound, every single part of it sounds like I've heard it before, making it a rather uninspired endeavour.

It's a good remix, but for me, it's just a bit too bLaNd.

bLiNd giving us some OCR gold yet again. I wonder how many others you have lying around that you never bothered to submit. If that's the case, get to it!

Sounds like AD600 and bLiNd. Seems good. ;-)

I like it.

no, i'm not going to slag you down...i agree 100%. bLiNd, you've done better. It's not bad, but honestly, the interpretation is not well suited to the source. That comment is of course opinion, but I stand by it. Well done, but as M_Y said, I want a higher class dessert from a 5 star restaurant.

second guess: I may go out on a limb, and I know I'm making a presumption here, and I apologize. Maybe you were working something out for another mix you're working on and this was the result of the experiment. Or maybe you were just in the mood to put some time into something but not really your whole thought. Either way, I can't complain that the result isn't a fair representation of skill. After all, a great mix isn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea. It seems pretty much everyone else has a shiny gold star for you. Summing up, I'd give it full points for originality and skill, a very decent entertainment value, but it's dismal, as far as personal preference...but you're not here to make me happy, are you. So keep on doin your thing. You got my vote.

Um..... yeah. While I am going to get slagged for not liking this, I'm still going to voice an opinion on it.

As excited as I was by the prospect of bLiNd doing more CT (even though his other CT mixes haven't been that great compared to his other stuff,) I was disappointed by this.

Maybe it's the fact that it's a boring genre, or the fact that even though the interpretation of the source is pretty good, the rest of the mix sounds like most of what else I've heard from the sightless one, but it's just... meh?

Sounds like snowbound crossed with... I dunno. One of the star fox remixes? Not only is it a sound you've done before, but one you've done better. At first I though that the age of the mix was probably the cause (even though Jade Catacombs is also old) but have no clue. It's not like this is from the formative years.

I don't feel the usual expansiveness in the sound choices, even from older stuff (White Skies kicks the pants off this in that department, and Jade Catacombs sticks a 10 inch stiletto down its throat and makes it beg to be whipped more,) or the magic of the original.

So, basically: This is well worth a direct post, is still a strong take on a well worn track, and is even original in that regard. But it's not a very good bLiNd mix. It's not a bad one, it's like I've been fed one of those good butterscotch pudding cups at a five star restaurant. I know that the pudding is good, and that I will enjoy it, and have even had a diet of just those pudding cups, but I know there are chefs that can do much better and have in the past.

Again, I know it's an older mix, but it's not ancient, or from the formative bLiNd. Yeah....

I guess it does come down to the genre. Music like this is meant to be played with the bassline amped up like crazy, and to be on Ecstacy dancing until cardiac arrest takes me.

Awesome. Took me a little while to pick what the source was. Once I clicked onto it though it was great. Added to my Dance playlist for those pre-drinks before nightclub nights.
