As I was listening to the old version of Saboteur II, which was uploaded in 2000, I decided that i just had to redo it again as the older version had some serious MIDI timing problems.

...but marcel shows us what it needs to recreate something fresh out of a mediocre sidtune: a stimulating bass, a cute cs80 lead (i'm right, marcel?), and some real nice sequencer-lines...
the only weak point(IMO) is that deep pad sound starting at 3:45, the pad dominates and i can't hear anymore those nice little sounds & beeps in the background, behind the FAT pad sound... but who cares... ;)
overall it's a fantastic synth-pop composition...
thank you for the music.... marcel

Having experience of the game 1st hand really does help with this one and listening to it for a 2nd time, this wouldnt go amiss in a saboteur remake, the soundscape and the way its written fits perfectly into the original. maybe this is how rob actually wanted it? or maybe not.
Either way, once again we have a great remix from marcel (2 in one go... must by xmas hehe).. The only gripe i have is that the drums are too low in the sound spectrum, they are played too far back into the speakers with everything else sitting at the front and this effects the rest of the bass, giving it a muddy feel.
But what is there is still as good as your likely to ever get on RKO without the aid of alot of money and a HUGE studio.
Dont actually ever remember there being any music in saboteur either but then my c64 hated me and hardly ever did what i asked of it. but what we have here as i said before is something worth downloading as usual from mr donne .
so stop reading the inane ramblings of a english madperson and go download and judge for yourself.
nostalgic gets a googly cos as i said - never remember any music from it so i cant exactly get nostalgic can i :-p lol.
