Yeeeeah
I really like sounds, the beat and the atmosphere but this should absolutely be reconstructed. The way you introduce first time the main melody in the beginning was a big dissapointment, too straigt and with lame piano like sound. Still very good.
Still very good? Not for me.
Excellent sound, combined with a classic breakbeat... Unbeatable...:)

Hazel appears as new member in the arranger-list. Welcome
His first work seem to be a d'n'd remix... I can not really get familar with it, because the flair/soul of the SID is hopeless destroyed. There are some nice parts, so it steped beyond Average.

New arranger on the block Hazel, has produced an alternative mix of Comic Bakery that can be best described as experimental. The remix is heavilly reliant on drum patterns which unfortunately are on the repetative side which can also be said for the remix itself.

The remix isn't bad and doesn't do much wrong, yet it also doesn't infuse itself on you to the point of being over interesting. All said and done, it's a good work out for the new comer and there are limited signs of promise.

It definitely has potential. There are some great ideas here. The main problem here is the order in which the elements are introduced. The breakbeat comes almost immediately, very loud and dry. I'd suggest a slower buildup into a fuller sound. Where's the climax? It's not obvious.

The piece has some cool tidbits, but listening to it from beginning to end, is not so pleasing.

Some instruments are badly tuned. Aside from that it does sound kind of fresh, because of the mixture between SID sounds and other instruments - and a kewl beat.

I feel like this remix just drags on and doesn't really go anywhere. Which is
not too good, because it stretches quite long. I feel no passion, no
inspiration. The drum loops are okay for a hip-hop or rap style but don't
really have much to do with the rest of this remix.
