Story

I was really trying to turn a corner with this one. The first C64 remix I ever uploaded to RKO was a version of the Platoon loader, so I wanted to revisit it and throw everything I had at making it better. I wanted it to sound more expressive than my previous attempts, so the majority of the track was recorded live using two Korg synths. I was obsessed with analogue synths at the time, which is reflected in my choice of sounds. This sounds like the moon patrol mix or something it says in the comments. It sure does...

 

As usual, I kept the arrangement fairly close to the original SID although I did try to make the bassline a bit more interesting. I was really happy with the result at the time but it never really held up; the quality of the remixes appearing on RKO was overwhelming.

Gosh, I think the original SID is nicer. This sounds like the moon patrol mix or something. I'm guessing you've progressed by now, but this aint that bad I guess.
Not bad, but doesn't add much to the original either!
