My brain admires how it's done, but my heart rebels against the style.
Probably well done Jazz, but this style just does not fit this classic in my opinion.
Amazing adaption of the SID into swingy jazz. The only way to improve this would be a full size orchestra!
F'in fabulous.
Rune Bertil's tracks always make me smile, thumbs up!:)
Like it, like it :)
WOW! As usually it rocks... Not usual style for IK remix, but sounds very good to my ears... Thanks!
A BIG FAT RED.... Well done on completing the full track here in Swing.. Love the energy of your tracks...
RB's work usually gets a red face, but there's just too many clashes to make it really flow, and too many sections sound like they are struggling to make the concept work.
It's maybe technically very good, but the style doesn't fit to the IK tune.
As others said, fun but the first slow part is also unfitting. After 3:40 the style starts working and comes alive quite well at the fast part of the original.
Technically brilliant, but: No more Swing, please!
Hardly any International Karate unfortunately.:-(
A fantastic sid - A fantastic remix!
Incredible technical quality!
Sweet
Full length, oriental swing jazz combo? What's not to love?!
Awesome, and unique interpretation of International Karate
Brillant but some different kind of style maybe would be better
A very enjoyable compose.

Well, first of all, I really admire that you've tackled the entire IK tune, not just a part of it. I also really admire the unbelievable effort that must've been put into this remix, it's obviously a work of love, a work of art. It's a great production with lots of wonderful details.

Having said that, like others, I also think this is not a perfect marriage of source material and style. Maybe it's my existing knowledge about prior IK remixes that gets in the way here, maybe it's the perceived awkwardness of the way the melody is fit onto a swing beat - dunno, but somehow it just doesn't gel together in my brain.

Does it make my legs move? Yes. Does it bring a smile on my face? Yes. Maybe I should just be content with that.
