I’ve always had a thing for 8-bit Nintendo music; I remember taping it by putting my old radio to my stereo’s speaker. Music from Mega Man 2 and 3 has always ranked near the top of my favourites list.
A few months ago, G3RSt used music from Dr. Wily’s castle for one of his mashups, “I Don’t Care For Dr. Wily.” Thinking about it one morning caused me to search for other remixes of Mega Man music. I eventually landed on RushJet1’s Bandcamp page; he has two albums of remade Mega Man music, among others. Since the music from Shadow Man’s stage is one of my favourites, I checked out RushJet1’s re-interpretation. Instantly, another mashup idea was birthed.
