Story
This, like Popcorn, and The Last Ninja, seems like a song that every tracker/musician must remix at least once. Here's my two cents!

VERY different, but still pretty awesome..
Sounds a little similar to one of the tunes on Jarre's second Oxygene album! Great sinister atmosphere, Industrial or EBM-like! Added to my collection.
Sounds great. Doesn't sound like IK AT ALL. Sorry, but "remix" is something else. "Outstanding" for sound, "bad" for nostalgia.
Good stuff but it has not much to do with the original, indeed :)
I absolutely love this. Pumpy, dancy, there is more IK+ in this than International Karate. One of my all time favourites.

Overall rating

Very Vince Clark filtered synth noodling start to this. No obvious IK influences at all, but it sounds nicely dancy. I'd be happy with this if I was creating a dance track. However, the percentage of IK is... about 0% from listening to it. Which makes this a wolf in sheep's clothing. Or a sheep in wolf's clothing, or something. But it's nothing to do with C64 music, and there's no melody to speak of.
