Sweet (feat Gibs)
I tried to bake a little story in it as well...
Mixed and mastered in FL Studio 9. Mostly used Audjoo Helix and Z3ta+.
REVIEW BY LaLa (02/10/2010)Wow, wow, wow!
Be impressed by my triple-wow, because this being my all-time favorite SID, I am especially picky about remixes that attempt to re-interpret it.
At first I found the intro a bit too slow, but it's growing on me. The silk-soft lead instrument and the overall softness of the entire production is impressive. It would be hard to top the expressive Yamaha CS-80 lead that Marcel Donne put into his remix, but you've done a great job here, Mordi.
When the guitar lead kicks in, it really tickles my heart, makes my legs tremble, tears form in my eyes, and gives me goosebumps - just like it does when I listen to the original SID. Which means that this remix manages to evoke the same emotions in me, and that's no small feat.
Also kudos for the beautiful coda you've added to the end, it's such attention to the detail in the arrangement that makes this remix truly outstanding.
Thank you, Mordi, for this remix! I'll carry it in my heart forever.
REVIEW BY NecroPolo (04/10/2010)Nice work Maestros
It is a real clash of two personalities, in the good mean. In many aspects, it shows the best of you both: the sensitivity of Mordi and the raw power of Gibs, with a huge respect for the original track. Mordi, this must be one of your most balanced tracks. And Gibs, you have put much more feelings into that than anything I've heard from you. That's what it makes so great for me. It's a fresh breeze of air in the mass of mechanical mixes. That's what "outsanding" is for.
Great sounds all the way but the guitar solo works a little independently from the rest of the sound texture and slightly too much in-your-face in the mix. Some more ironing that into the mix would make it a little "sweeter" and compressor is slightly over the top here and there - but that's my only rants, just some odd lines of a perfect painting.

drax shouts: Excellence!!! I think there is a bug in the original sid-file. Just found the original prg-file and it sounds a bit different... This one covers the sid-file from hvsc.
xo shouts: OMFG - a masterpiece!:-)
ryrynz shouts: Awesome, though I still prefer Marcel Donne's version. His background tune adds alot of oomph and this ones a bit blippy. This tune instead focuses on the lead and thats what makes this tune get a red.
weasel shouts: Somehow it doesn't catch the way I expected it. Although the mix is solid and well done. Hmm... Maybe it's the tune-selection itself. Who knows.;-)
commodoremuseum shouts: PERFECT
Arne shouts: Awesome one - absolutely great remix!!! Chappeau!
horizoner shouts: This one blew me away - AWESOME!!!
chabee shouts: Amazing!
SarahKreuz shouts: Sweet? Never heard of it. I GUESS it`s a C64 Game, eh? XD This song is strong, got a powerful sense of emotion and reminds me a little bit of Jogeir Liljedahl`s tracks (especially @ 4:30 min). Great tune. And now SHUT UP-I wanna listen to it once more.;)
