Neil Brennan's catchy, oriental-tinged tunes have produced a wealth of excellent C64 remixes and Majkol's treatment of Samurai Warrior is no exception. From beginning to end, it mirrors the inherent energy of the original, overlaying several simple melodies to great effect. The drums, while following the same basic pattern as the original, have a number of important additions, which help to carry the track through its four-minute length.

While this mix wins few points for innovation, it's practically flawless in every other respect and, as such, comes highly recommended.

This is one of the best remixes around. I always liked Brennan's tunes, and this is the perfect homage to the karate tune master. Great arrangement, although I'm not sure about that koto portamento...
