Remix64 Volume 2: Into Eternity

Remix64 - Into Eternity

by Various Artists

The original "Remix64" title referred more to the community embracing the remixers than the content of the CD. And so it was that Remix64 - Into Eternity turned into a symphonic epic not a million miles away from the popular Merregnon series of CDs: there certainly is a teutonic air to much of the album. Highlights of the CD include Markus Holler's spine-tingling reworking of "Fist 2" with flute and ethereal vocals, and Thomas Detert's "Spellbound" which gives life to Rob Hubbard's own dark vision for the piece. Belying the computery artwork of the cover, this CD is a powerful piece of fantasy soundtrack more than it is a remix CD. Enjoy it at that level, and be blown away.

Listening Recommendation

 Outer Space (Spaceboost Remix)

Arranged by Sonic Wanderer

Oh yeah! Just returned from holidays to find this remix of my old C64 theme! There are a few bars I wished were also incorporated into this mix, just to give it a little more, but overall, I mentioned to the other Cosine members that I thought it was "Bloody Marvellous"!!!

I especially love the lovely female voice, it makes it even more better for me! OK, so someone gonna try and do a conversion of my Turbo-Charge Fastlane theme? Or, do I have to do it myself?

 Arabian Zoids (Themed Solo)

Arranged by Larsec

Ever since Jarre's Millennium concert at the pyramids of Ghiza I've come to
appreciate Arabic music more and more, especially modern Arabic pop and Arabic
singing. This chill-out cover of Zoids has some of the latter - and that's
where the "Arabian" attribute ends. So in this sense the title is a bit
misleading. It may have started as an Arabian style cover, but then it morphs
into a "standard" chill-out track, then into improvisational noodlings based
on some SID classics. In other words, if you want to hear a coherent SID
remix, steer far away from this one. The individual chunks of this remix are
interesting, but as a whole they don't make any sense to me. After this 9 and
a half minute long track I was left confused, not satisfied. The good point is
that the technical quality of this track is pretty high.

It's a song of power. Get out of my way until we get shot down. Everyone will die, lose everything, but until then we sing.
