SIDrip Alliance - Krakout
This one is heavily based on the live version that we played onstage so it includes live instruments only. The work on this track was started somewhere around early 2011 for a retro game project that was put on ice, so was this remix for over a year. The work with it was continued around 2012 April when drums were recorded. The recording session included 3 more SID remixes, to be released later this year. Keep tuned.
drums - Chad
keyboards - Werdy
bass - Hermit
guitars - Küki and NecroPolo
kudos: to Ben Daglish!

We hope you'll have as much fun of listening as we had with playing / recording it.
All the blessings,
SIDrip Alliance crew
technicalreview is pretty much the same as LaLa's - the actual recorded sound itself could be better, and I'd like to hear more bass maybe, but the arrangement, and playing itself is marvellous. What's nice is that you can tell it's a *live* piece - personally, I'd love to see that performed.In fact, if you chaps ever fancied getting together for a gig...
There's no particular technic: some notes entered into a sequencer, and few ideas (but confused) about the result. Okay, this song don't like me absolutely, maybe this is clear, but don't like me ABSOLUTELY... this is a great result, negative, but great ;-)
Here's the second thing I really like about this remix: it's live (mostly). In fact, it's -a-live: you can taste that it's people playing great music for people who are willing to listen.
Here's what I don't like about this remix: the mix sounds a bit overcompressed to me. Maybe because the chords played by the synth seemingly disappear behind a metal cage. But in general I feel its flavor is suppressed a bit too much.
And again, here's what I really like about this remix: its fast pace! It's just mad, crazy - it's wonderful!
