Beautiful lead synth work! I just love this one!
Has that uniquely Mordi lead... And is a fantastic track to boot. Well balanced and smooth/relaxing.
Already sounds like a scene classic. Brilliant!
OH YEAH MORDI, AWESOME!
Crystal clear lead, and just enough of a backingtrack to keep it all beautifully balancedt. As usual, an outstanding track Mordi!
Ab-so-lute-ly fan-tas-tic!!! Added to my collection.
I remember buying (Ok, and cracking) "Thing on a spring" for the Music track and back in the day I would have done the same for any game featuring this tune too. Nice!
Beautiful work, once again
This is sick! Totally awesome. The original by Laxity is fat easy my favorite sid ever made. You nailed everything. Outstanding instruments with thick expression on the lead.
Power lead!
A great line continued. That's about it. Your style fits those Maniacs Of Noise style perfectly. Damn if I was MON you were already a member.
Best track ever listed on RKO
Awesome. Well done Mordi best track I've heard on RKO in a while.
Lovely!
Good mix but not above the standard
My favorite Mordi tunes, beautiful synth sounds and atmosphere. Incredible.
Love it

Why do I like this track?
Well it ticks all the right boxes for me in what an electronic piece of music should sound like.
First off there is the lead - it has not been programmed to sound flat and lifeless - it's got a lot of expression in there. The little frills also add character to the lead.

The chords in this track are interesting too and make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! This remix also has a nod to it's roots by having the 8 bit sounding staccato arp sound running throughout the remix and I like the way it's developed in the fade out - something most remixers would probably have overlooked by just letting it run and fade. I also think this is an outstanding track in that it manages to marry the sound of Jarre and Vangelis in just 3m:22sec. In fact when I first heard the beta release of this I thought Mordi had found an unreleased bootleg Vangelis track!

Well done Mordi I hope one day I can do a remix as good as this one. This is staying on my MP3 player and best of all it was free!!
