June Mermaid (Remix) is Marcus D's return to Retro'd, the video game-sampling series; this time with a flip from a PS1 classic, Xenogears. The game was released in 1998, and the soundtrack was handled by the legendary Yasunori Mitsuda (most famous for Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross), in the prime of Squaresoft's golden-era.
Marcus' flip of June Mermaid is a beautifully melancholic track that shows the continuation from Retro'd 2 of the producer's ability to find and classily update video game compositions that skew the lines between the Retro'd series, and feature albums like Melancholy Hopeful and the Lone Wolf LP.
