Cauldron (Hexenkche Walpurgisnacht HardTance Mix)
Cauldron (Hexenküche Walpurgisnacht HardTrance Mix)
Remix of the Commodore C64 Game Cauldron.
In Germany it was released under the name Hexenküche. There is a night in Germany, where all witches comes together to celebrate a big witch party. Full of Magic and dark energy. This night is called Walpurgisnacht. It's the same date as Halloween so maybe you recognize some melody in the track. ;)
This is my second C64 Remix!
REVIEW BY winc (08/10/2005)Personally I found the original SID of this piece kinda boring - it was the same tune over and over and really unless you are playing a game that gets repeative very quickly.
Now I also am not a great techno fan, but this was just a neat little piece that takes the original song and... does something interesting with it.
I know a few people feel that techno is the "cheats way out of doing a remix" I on the other hand take each piece as a extension of the creators interest in the piece. This techno remake of the original in fact improves on a very boring original piece in my opinion.
The only argument I could have about this remix is it does run into the same problem that the original does - the original tune by itself just isn't enough to grasp hold of someone's attention long enough - there needed to be... "more" a break even created totally from scarch and added to improve the over all piece because after about 6 minutes of this tune ... you start to wish the Witch just killed everyone
But overall a good remix of the original -
Dan shouts: Very Nice!, I especially love the "halloween" influenced bit, the whole tune is very well woven into the dance beats and some gorgeous use of instruments in parts
Tas shouts: This is VERY good. Love the witches cackles and the use of haunting effects which are used modestly. A little on the over long side though
LMan shouts: Cool.
rollercoaster shouts: Wow, that is real Clubstyle!
andipdl2 shouts: Cool!
infamous shouts: Probably the best dance tune released on this site this year.. Very well constructed and enjoyable to listen too
cicalone shouts: Very Good trance remix
LaLa shouts: This is a really good clubby dance tune! Well constructed and the witch sounds really enhance it. I'm impressed!
devilhood shouts: Lmao ;-)
load_error shouts: I like dance music, and I like trance when it's not cheesy, and this is not cheesy, but it's an average hardtrance tune. Nice one tho.
germantaz shouts: SUPERB....
eliot shouts: Very nicely done :-)
Quarex shouts: I was definitely expecting this to be a lot harder with the word "hard" in the title, but still nicely done.
anaconda shouts: A good tune. It's well done though it's a bit long. But all in all a worthy remake.
teoball shouts: I love trance and you did a great job with this
romeo_knight shouts: Promising start but gets a bit dull - the same part in variations over and over again!
DHS shouts: Your average german techno with the addition of a good idea not perfectly accomplished.
sidbrowser shouts: Very funny, more of them please!
nettuno shouts: I don't love this music, but this is not bad
ifadeo shouts: Argh!
migu shouts: Simply a great remake!
sebuko shouts: Mike Meyers meets Cauldron. A great idea and a great work!
Raw shouts: You just gotta love that witch ;) and the woman scream is a lovely addition. Oh and the song is great!
RemixFan shouts: Very Good!
Dumper shouts: A brilliant blending of two tunes and a great atmosphere.
Kite shouts: I wish I could download this!
omoroca shouts: This one's trying to sound scary. A little childish with the witches and the wolves, and the grave-opening sound, but aside from that the dark and cold atmosphere is good. Added to my Halloween mix.
Amok shouts: Excellent stuff mate
Grigul shouts: Awesome track. I love good trance music, and this one is one of my alltime favourites. Excellent work, DJ Mitch.
