Cobra (skyline remix)
  • SKYLINE from the motion Soundtrack COBRA by Sylvester Levay

First I thought this is a Martin Galway - SID , then I was told NO it's a Ben Daglish - SID and guess what ? YEP,it is a Ben Daglish -SID conversion from a Sylvester Levay tune! Very well done by Ben Daglish 'cos the original tune is close to the SID conversion. My remix is more like:

  • PINTA,NINJA,SANTA MARIA from the VANGELIS soundtrack Conquest of paradise (track 12)

It was a struggle to get the guitar notes at the end of the track, but it was fun doing the remix and I hope you all like it!

REVIEW BY mahoney (28/01/2003)

This could be the main selling song on any "Synthesizer greatest"-CD of early 90'ies. Jan Hammer, well, he's there somewhere, and boy have you done a great piece of art here, Thomas! Being one of my very favourite SIDs, I'm just drooling here, listening, dreaming and having a very good time! Some spots reveal that it's a sampled guitar, but turning off the nitpicker in me those few seconds, I really love this remix! The drums are calming, soothing, just wonderful! :-D

REVIEW BY LMan (02/02/2003)

Totally awesome! Thomas does Vangelis style again. This would fit seamlessly into the Blade Runner soundtrack. The instruments are replicated perfectly, you couldn't tell the tune from a real Vangelis track. The "Cobra" melody is incorporated properly to fit into that mood. I actually haven't heard Sylvester Levay's original, but there's no way it could be better than this!

Thus top smiley for all categories! :-D

6 felix. shouts: Great Remix!!
5 westerling shouts: Great, but after three minutes something happens with the lead and it sounds horrible.
6 ninjai shouts: This is one of the best guitar remixes of any game I've heard..
6 lolicon shouts: THIS IS AWESOME! Love it!
5 stallkerl shouts: Very nice remix... Very vangelis-like, reminds me to some passages of the blade runner ost :)
6 humorguy shouts: LMan. It is better than the original. Don't fret. Emanuelle anyone?!
2 omoroca shouts: I like the cobra tune, but not this remix. Probably due the choir in the background. And the lead voice is not accurate towards the end. I prefer the Morricone version by Axel Melzener.
6 zine shouts: Should be better with a bit originality, however good and evocative
6 Nebdar shouts: Very awsome very climatic and melodic it has the magic and is very smooth and pleasant to listen
6 Dr-Duke shouts: I still have that linen sheet from that picture today! Great one, Thomas!
6 NecroPolo shouts: It is not some way that I could imagine Cobra tune before but it works perfectly.
6 Marcus shouts: Thomas! Well DONE!
5 drm shouts: Very nice... Until 3:18...
