Story

My entry for the Remix64.com 20th Anniversary Remix Compo.

This subtune has been remixed before by Feekzoid (Something Stranger), and later polished up by Marcel Donné and sumppi for a SLAY Radio feature that was supposed to go back and re-remix an older remix with a more updated soundscape.

I wanted to explore the darker side of this intriguing 26 second long, one-channel tune by Galway.

EPIC!
Epic contemporary movie score soundscape by the community's master of the genre.
So much to like... The distorted brass and kick ass drums. I've loved this since it's first play in the R64 compo. Fantastic work!
Kudos captain! It slays!!

This one is a grower! I think it deserved a better result in the compo and I can only speculate that the slow build-up maybe doesn't work extremely well for a compo entry. However, regarding the slow build-up I think the goosebump-inducing main part (from 2:30 on) should have been extended. Btw. I bought the game back then and I cannot remember that tune at all hence the low nostalgia factor...😉

Mordi has the mordifier, Slaygon has the slaygonizer. A larger-than-life cinematic version of a SID subtune that is less than 30 seconds long - it has been slaygonized. Dark and gritty, grandiose and in-your-face. If they ever make a Hollywood epic about MicroProse Soccer, this should be its title tune.
