Dutch Breeze/Robocop 3 (Progressive Uplift Remix)
This is a remix/remake of the excellent Dutch Breeze/Robocop 3 tune by Jeroen Tel, one of the best composers on the C64.

Many people will recognize the tune from the well known Dutch Breeze demo but it also appeared in the Robocop 3 game - and appears in HVSC under the latter name.

Tehcnical notes:
The remix was created using Logic Audio Platinum 6.x and a variety of hardware and software synthesizers, including EMU 4XT, Emagic ES2, Yamaha CS6R, Clavia Nord Rack 2, and others. The lead synth was played live using using a distorted guitar sound processed thru a reFX Trasher II filter. The song was mixed using Logic Audio and a VM7200 digital mixing console. Mastered with T-RackS24.


Please enjoy!

REVIEW BY craigg (22/07/2003)

For some reason Jeroen Tel's SIDs rarely work when remixed, perhaps due to their already 'complete' sound on the C64. However, this remix bucks the trend and then some. Lagerfeldt's mix may not be the most innovate we've seen, but it takes the original SID and puts it on overdrive, and to great effect. The addition of the club-like intro is inspired, providing the track with pace right from the start, and a major improvement over the slightly slow build of the original. The choice of instruments is pretty much flawless throughout, and while the inclusion of samples perhaps borders on the cheesy, they're not overdone. Overall, if you're a Tel fan, download this. If you're not, download it anyway, because this remix is great.

REVIEW BY Sonic Wanderer (20/07/2003)

A very well mixed remix indeed. Though I don't know the original, I must confess.
Technically this is almost as perfect as mixage could get, and choise of instruments is 100% heads-on. =)
There's plenty of bass, mid-range and treble to go around, and the balance of the mixage are top-notch.
The only downside I can think about is that the tune quite quickly get's somewhat repetitive, but fort some reason the bassline keeps my feet taping all the way through no matter what. =)
A must download!!

REVIEW BY red_devil (14/08/2003)

OH YES!

This is totally awesome! The remix couldn't be done any better, the lead sound that's crucial for this tune is perfect. To some it up, this is THE f***ing remix for this tune. It goes on repeat now for the last hour, I even added it on my mobile phone :-)

The original sid was the best tune on the Dutch Breeze demo.

So, Lagerfeldt, when will you remake Flip flop (also from Dutch Breeze)? I'm waiting. Good work!

REVIEW BY LMan (03/09/2003)

You cannot listen to Lagerfeldt's "Dutch Breeze" interpretation without feeling the urge of getting on your feet and dance. I just love those juicy drums on this one. The proper usage of SID samples maintains enough of nostalgia, while Lagerfeldt's production standard is obviously top notch studio quality. An excellent dance track, punchy, fresh, and perfectly produced.

REVIEW BY infamous (21/07/2003)

Yes!!! Yes!!! Oh yes!!! This is what I've been wanting for some time, a remix of the brilliant theme tune to Robocop 3.
Someone else did it once before (pretty well) but this... this!
Yes!!! If this was a drug it'd be Viagra to a 90 year old.

"Come quietly or there will be trouble"...nah thanks it's coming loud, it's coming and it's eating all the cookies and u aint gonna stop it.

I like this.

REVIEW BY tomsk (02/09/2004)

Hugely crisp and fresh dancey version which I enjoyed enough to vote one of my favorites on Remix 64 last year. Extremely toe tapping beat, with a professional sound to boot. You can't argue with quality like this....thanks again for a great sounding mix.

I cannot imagine a remix of this epic track more beautiful than this.. The only one who can make a better one, can only be Tel himself...the greatest ever...

REVIEW BY pezz (07/11/2003)

I just simply don't enjoy listening to the original of this anymore, and when I play the original SID, I think of every part of this version. Outstanding.
