Human Race (Tune 4) Alternative Rock Mix
My first C64 remix.
The idea for this track was to stay true to the original. I tried to imagine how it would sound outside the SID environment and this is what I came up with.
It has a lot of contrasting sections that blend together before erupting into a more rock'ish middle section. I couldn't resist rocking it up!
I don't think a dumbed down version would pay homage in the same respect, as the whole tune would sound quite meandering.
I understand that this specific sub-song from Human Race has been remixed quite often, but please have an open mind when listening to this, I put a lot of love and care into recording it and would appreciate it if the
Oh not another Human Race sub-song 4 remix comments were kept to a minimum hehe, be easy on me ;-)
Hope you all enjoy the track and any future remixes I release!
Incidentally, feel free to check out my own original material on my site if you're up for something a little bit different.
Lots of C64 love to everyone,
- The entire tune was recorded and produced using Cubase SX 2
- Guitars were recorded with my Fender Venus Vista Series electric
- Drums were played via MIDI using Native Instruments Battery
- QuadraSID was used for the original bassline and also to mimic the guitar melody

A remastered mix has been finally uploaded! The original mix was done late in the morning and the drums were far too loud.
I also have a 5.1 surround sound mix, but I will only send this on request.
