Jordan Aguirre, also known as bLiNd, is a musician best known for creating remixes of popular video game music through Overclocked Remix. Metroid fans may be familiar with an album called Reserve Tank: VARIAtions, an album put together by Jordan’s friends when he was very ill in hospital. He was able to recover and add his own track Jade Catacombs to the album, a happy ending to a group of friends who wanted him to recover and get well. bLiNd also released a Super Metroid remix album called Chozo Legacy.
Sadly fate has struck Jordan again, along with his wife Jennifer as their home in Las Vegas went up in flames a couple of days ago. They lost everything, including Jordan’s musical equipment required to make a living, priceless belongings from late relatives and all eight of their beloved pets perished in the fire.
We are saddened to hear about this loss, and we know that many fans in the Metroid community, myself included, have enjoyed his work over the years, and would love to do all they can to help. A fundraiser has been set up to raise $125,000 to cover the cost of the damage, which you can support by visiting the links below this news post. No amount of money will recover the loss of priceless items and life, but the money should help them get their lives back on track. We would really appreciate it if you could share it around!
We cannot imagine how difficult these times are for Jordan and Jennifer right now, but on behalf of the team at Shinesparkers, we are thinking of you, and hope you reach your goal.
