from Mega Ran by Random



MegaLude feat. Kid Overdrive produced by Random
When I first started working on Mega Ran, I had to do a lot of research…I had to research the games, the music, the characters…and also to see if anyone had attempted anything like what I was doing. So I found a BUNCH of Mega Man themed artists: mostly rock bands, who just do Mega Man cover tunes. I thought that was the coolest thing ever.

One guy I came across was a gentleman from Indiana named John, called Kid Overdrive. First of all, he had a huge spiked Mohawk, so he was hard to forget. Secondly, he made some killer Mega Man tunes, and was dope on the guitar, horns, drums…dude was a one man band. So, I told him about the project that I was doing, and the track I wanted him to get on, and he was all for it.

I sampled Mega Man 6’s “Prologue” as the bottom layer of the track, which was to serve as a short instrumental interlude between the 2 parts of the love story. Well, John sent me back a killer horn section that I thought was so awesome, I just used to listen to it on repeat constantly. If you think his work on the Mega Ran album is tight, you should hear his album…or the full 3 minute version of “MegaLude” that I have.. It’s EPIC (maybe I’ll send it to you if you ask nicely). But, DN3 and I determined that an interlude shouldn’t be that long… and most of the listeners probably wouldn’t have appreciated it like me. I had a specific plan for the length that I wanted the album to be (don’t ask why, I just did), so this was one of the songs that got cut a little short.
