Story

In his palace, the evil shogun Kunitoki senses his fate approaching by whose hands his minions have already started to fall in the wastelands. Armakuni, the last of his kind, is seeking revenge. He’s coming closer by every second to fulfill it. And he’s already in the Wilderness…

The original track does not need any introduction, being a well-known and iconic C64 tune composed by one of the greatest SID composers of all time: Ben Daglish.

This song by itself holds all the greatnesses of SID music within: unique sounds, melodic tunes, badass basslines, powerful vibe, peculiar mood, memorable feelings and awesome filter modulation(!). Mentioning the latter, you can almost visualize the potmeters turning as the cutoff smoothly changes. All of these are of pure SID magic which impressed us right at the first time we heard it. Benn achieved to combine such uniqueness and epicness in his music and gave us so much that we felt we have to give back to indicate our deep gratitude and appreciation. Besides the fact that Wilderness is one badass helluva track!

By this remix, we would like to honour the musical heritage of Ben Daglish and also pay tribute to Anthony Lees. Though they cannot be with us, they are living in our hearts by their eternal melodies and their musical magic within.

Overall rating

There are many-many remixes of this tune available, both on RKO and on released albums. After I listened to some of my favorite ones and then this remix by SIDNIFY, it's still hard to pick a clear winner, but hot damn, this one is definitely there on the top! What a tour de force! All done with the kind of professionalism we've come to expect from SIDNIFY: an amazing, fresh arrangement, spotless instrumentation, mixed to perfection. Fantastic job, guys!
