A slow, sad treatment of Warhawk: almost a requiem. Shades of this mood for Warhawk also showed up in O2s seminal Warhawk mix. It works very well. Warhawk by its nature relies on minor chords, and has a strong melody line which can well survive away from the original SID. This, this cover works. A Jarre Revolutions feel and floaty pads (albeit with an irritatingly piercing echo-lead) performs the rest of the piece. It's an intelligent and persuasive cover, and even when the melody has its chords changed, it works, the sign of the thought that's gone into it. If the production and sound quality were better, and a couple of the irritations in EQ removed, this would be CD-worthy. Perhaps a rework on better technology? Pretty damn good.
