Nice! Catchy! Red Smiley Remix!
JTs SID is one of my alltime favorites! <3 The way Magnar went for his interpretation is most likely the ONLY I can NOT find some tiny detail to complain about - still catchy as hell with a whole new vibe!
It started well, got better in the middle and the more said about the end, the better <3
Love both parts to this, the 80's tv style intro (Cheers and Alf come to mind) and the guitar although I wish the latter had some more meat to it.

This is a slick remix by Magnar. It caught my ear on the competition and having now had a chance to re-listen, I haven't altered my opinion. It's a nice interpretation of JT's original and the instrumentation gives it a great 90's feel, (to my ears at least). The 'hooks' are nice and there's some great use of phasing & frequency-manipulation to get some real 'cut' on the licks. I'm gonna -1 you for repeating the wolf-whistle. Catchy as hell and well mixed & mastered.

A really, really well-crafted remix! Upon hearing the slow intro I got very excited, I thought it's going to be like that all the way. Unfortunately, it's not, but then it switches up the tempo, an excellent bass guitar lick appears, and it just blossoms into an amazing piece. Unlike Poke16384, I will actually give you a +1 for the wolf-whistle, because it appears in the original SID, too, and I thought that was a nice touch. ;-)
