Peter Clarke - Ocean Loader 3 (21st Century SID Remix)
Ok!! Here's me revisiting one of my favourite pieces of SID music from back in the day.
The more observant amongst you will have spotted 2 OL3 remixes released by me on the same day. I've been playing with the tune a lot lately and
I felt the need in this version to stick to some of the 'OLD' rules & restrictions that were there when I originally wrote it on the C64 back in '86.
Although, I did break a few too...
Rules Broken: 1). There are more than 3 voices, (obviously). 2). Just a couple of licks & stings are polyphonic
The rest is written using monophonic voices. I wanted to recapture some of the original with single voices bouncing all over the place. So. the main
lead-voice is SID (all 3 voices at once with a little post fx). Same goes for some of the other voices and there's even some trilling in there.
Hope you like it....
I'll be honest, I was a little apprehensive when listening to this remix the first time, but once I've read Peter's comments on this remix it suddenly made sense to me: the monophonic instruments, the arpeggios, the analogue warmth - all of it.
Oh, and I absolutely love the drums on this one!
Well done, sir, and thank you for this gem!
