All in all I like the eastern asian spirit, though the lead pipe sounds a bit too mechanical.
I say it again: if I'll ever make a Kung-Fu movie, along with Graeme Slapp's also great Fist remix, this track is welcome as a score :) LaLa is right, the end is not as sharp as the front but it was a nice listen for me so I'm impressed!
The pads and synths are excellent it reminds me of Fripp & Eno stuff, but the plastic lead synth flute just spoils it, then at 2. 30 the out of place drums and silly kung fu samples just wreck it all.
Very nicely done, great sounds, I like
Very nice japanese atmopshere!
GREAT!

This is two remixes for the price of one.

The first half is a really well-done ambient remix with a mostly oriental instrumentation. I find the lead wind instrument synthetic and expressionless, otherwise, the arrangement is great.

The second remix - starting at 1:55 after the big gong - is more synthy, reminding me of Tangerine Dream's early 80s era. This, I feel, is a bit weaker than the first half of the remix.

If this remix ended at 1:55, it would've received a big red smiley from me, but unfortunately, the second half feels less refined to me.
