I asked around for a SID that could be remixed in the style of Hans Zimmer's Time. Lagerfeldt suggested this one.

However, it didn't quite want to be in the style of Time, so it became this instead.


It felt appropriate to dedicate it to Skitz, who passed away almost exactly 4 years ago.

REVIEW BY Nickenstein (13/03/2015)

The way that the classical stringed instruments are blended with a deep synthetic-bass is very hollywood, and would fit in perfectly in any current big-budget movie. Having now just listened to the original SID, I'm quite stunned at how expertly you have turned it into a very modern piece without loosing the essence of the source. Also, the dedication you made to Skitz in the title made me remember my time with him as I listened. There are tears on my desk.

6 Ziphoid shouts: Nice twist compared to the original SID which still can be recognized in this very enhanced state. Too bad it's a bit short, but I think this requires a play in a Cozy Corner in the future. :) Well done!
