Guitars: Necropolo (SIDRip Alliance)

Bass: Harri Tuovila (Griffin)

Voice: Mimmi

I wanted a rough Last V8, because that's what it always has sounded like for me, so I did the drum track to begin with, and sent it off to Necropolo who did some gorgeaus guitar work.

Initially I also had a synthetic bass in the track, but that ended up feeling wrong, so I sent it to Harri who promptly put his magic fingers on the bass strings, and created this bassline for it.

Arrangement-wise, this is more or less 1:1. Another one of those tracks that is so bloody awesome to begin with that it only needed slightly polished instrumentation to be current.

I thought of using the too-much-used V8 samples, but decided to upgrade them to a female voice, which is where Mimmi comes in. And rather than filling the track with screeching tires and samples from the game and all that, I decided it would be quite enough with Mimm's voice so as not to overload the track with irrelevant stuff, and to keep the raw rock feeling to it.

I think it worked out pretty nicely.

This is as close as I can get to how I imagined the SID to be like. All rock, shredding away on the guitars, having a pounding beat, punching you in your stomach with the bass... This is how I remember the SID. Prove me wrong. (X-FormZ/Dimmignatt... I know you can! Do it!)

Also, thanks Rob! Very memorable moments thanks to this tune!

Thanks to Necropolo, Harri and Mimmi - This would have been exactly nothing without you.

Also thanks to Mordi, Max Hall and Ziphoid for pre-listens and input on WIPs. Much appreciated!

Hope you enjoy this remix, and indeed all of 2011!

Happy (rocky) New Year!

5 Ziphoid shouts: Nice arrangement and excellent guitar playing, but it is a bit short and feels a bit uneventful. Great effort nevertheless.
6 vurtx shouts: V8 has needed a hard rockin' version for years and here it is! Sublime work I cant fault it.
6 LaLa shouts: Rockin' hard, man! I think it could've handled the tire screeches and whatnot, too. Phenomenal collaborative work, I really enjoy it!
4 lomaxx shouts: Great sound quality for both, the instruments and mastering. It's just not my type of style and the female voice doesn't fit in there the way it's done.
4 SarahKreuz shouts: Good one
6 Arne shouts: Yes, I agree with vurtx - V8 needs a hard rocking style. Great remix!
6 pie vs pie shouts: Kudos to all who collabed on this especially the producer its a sublime mix (left handed drummer by any chance? )the performances all round are very enjoyablke
5 bastard shouts: Quite nice! Been missing some classic Rob Hubbard, so thanks!
6 karter shouts: Quite good cover, congratz.
6 DSMarine shouts: Didn't do a technical analysis... Just love how it sounds! Gj.
5 infamous shouts: Good little arrangement and nice guitarwork (what else can you expect though from mr polo? ) its just missing a bit of length and the beep noises at the start.. That defined the original tune.
5 Melaure shouts: Very nice
5 omoroca shouts: Too noisy for my taste, but technically definitely brilliant! I like the spoken words: "V8! Return to base! Immediately! " Nostalgia!!!
5 ryrynz shouts: Mean.
