My first C64 Remix. I just love the melody of lightforce and so I tried to catch the spirit of it in a modern style.
Not what I consider "minimal" but I damn good kick in the nuts of Lightforce!
Not minimal, but keeps the feel intact while the nice backbeats make the pace of the tune quicker and more urgent sounding. Good effort, this, with excellent instrument choices.
Nice arrangement, though I don't like the lead sound
Sounds great!
Nice. But the minimalistic approach is missing :)
Wibble wibble wibble doodle doo da diddle... I absolutely bloodywell love this.. I love the original sid just as much.. BEAUTIFUL!
The drums are quite nice. But the squeaky main track ruins it completely.
Ohh boy... I've always liked a good beat..:)
True to the original. Makes you tap your feet.
Very good, but I don´t like when pads without attack are used as a lead sound. The ending is a bit cut off.
I like the drums and the composition, and as Lightforce is a good song originally. But the lead synth and the other synths sounds a bit too much ST-soundish. Doesn't quite fit to the excellent drums.
Great beat, great sounds, a VG uptempo remix.
Drums make me bop up and down, I agree with westerlings comment on the lead
Damn, the more I listen to this, the more I like it. Best remix of the year for me (in the electronic range). Dont know why, but I really love the sounds and the atmosphere
Very nice, groovy drums, but maybe a little bit too shynty-chorus to be minnimal
You've actually managed to capture it pretty well, it just rocks!
I've heard too many good Lightforce remixes before, so I cannot like this one, sorry!
There are many LF remixes, this one is top 3 for me as it captures the brilliance of the SiD that few of the others do, if some of the leads were better quality it would be #1, which is Stefan Poiss for me.

Why not? The drums are kicking like hell! Just the main track melody is quite... flashy. The other instruments are well choosen, not the best ones, but well arranged. The Pace is based on the original and did i say the drums are great?
