Mashups can be great, but they are not as good as original material.

On A Good Day (Metropolis)

This is Emery's Metropolis[1] with the OAGD vocals overlaid. That's all it is.
Is it worth it nonetheless? No. Although Metropolis' retro electro is indelible, we already have OAGD. & anyway, JM & W repurposed everything much better, not just copy & paste.

On A Good Day (Metropolis) (Music Video)

I don't know if A & B know that ads in a music video are quite painful, & not a welcome or smart 'calling card'. They almost ruin Alchemy, & here seem out-of-place, truly the worst thing that shilling can be. The rest of this video is happy people turning a barren lot into a house with a garden, painting, drilling, & smiling all the way through, building regulations & all. Although this is a distinct graduation in their music videos, since it has a plot, it is one that the goat could have come up with.

On A Good Day (Metropolis) (J Majik & Wickaman Remix)

This dnb delirifacience is one of the injections of "alternative" styles into this trance label. More importantly, it's a flexure in every way, from the style, to the vocals' torsion, to the tune's contorsion & mental distortion. Their retortion of mere coupling is a Newmont Boddington funnel web into the soul, leading to electrogravitics on the other side. Their grapes of psychonautica turn purpler with every passing nanosecond. Sweet dew, that's fluid.
