Makke goooooood!
This remix is pretty darn close to how I always imagined this tune: raw with lots of heavy guitars. The guitars could sound better, the lead sounds are a bit thin, but the feeling is definitely there.
Partly sounds like done in 5 minutes and without ambition. I prefer the SIDs.
Great stuff! Great racing game feeling!

Starts off with the original sample-playing from the SID for a few seconds and seamlessly continues in a modern pseudo-Rock-sound, more Electronic than Rock.
The best remix of a sample-driven Hatlelid-SID Accolade-theme. Preserves the spirit of the original 100 precent. Well mixage. Wonderful.

I love the orignal by Kris Hatlelid, so here was me hoping. The sampled drums of the original SID start it off, to give away to a rousing rock number, that really gives you enough passion to kick some ass. Maybe the guitars needed to be a little dirtier, but it's the right way to do it. The organ bit that shares the lead doesn't quite cut it, but it's hard to get that right anyway and he did a bloody good effort. It blends nicely into the second part of the medley (subtune 2) and gives you that feeling you're in some heavy metal concert medley, with the guitars kicking in nicely. Now, it also blends nicely into the last part of the medley, which technically although a cover, is done pretty well. Nice to see a tune treated in this way and rocking.
