REVIEW BY LaLa (03/10/2004)

Arkanoid - as techno-rap??? With some alternative rock mixed in??? I am scratching my head here, but one some level it seems to work okay. In a club setting this might set the place on fire, though, because it has really great rhythm. I doubt there's a single tune (C64 remix or not) out there that boasts more styles than this one... It's probably this eclectic mix of styles that distances me from it.

REVIEW BY tomsk (30/10/2004)

You've got you hand it to Makke - when it comes to crazy vocals he's hard to beat. This parady of 'The Real Thing' by 'Faith no more' couldn't have been easy to fit around the arkanoid sid, just damn it he's just about pulled it off. Great singing by the way - a funny and lyrically clever mix from the goooood man himself.

REVIEW BY retrovertigo (05/10/2004)

Great mix, great sounds, great vocals and with a Pattonisation of a sid you couldn't possibly go wrong!

I really like this mix, it's fun, unpretentious and damn funky, how about Spy vs. Spy in the style of Midlife Crisis? ;)
