Story

Done for the SLAY Radio Arok Tribute Remix compo.
There is some additional info in the compo video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3JH78pgjR0&t=10636s

The SID itself was released in the Oblique demo (https://csdb.dk/release/?id=192911) by Hoaxers at Gubbdata on the 28th of June, so I had to wait until now for HVSC to update (and hence RKO) before I could upload it. If you don't have a real c64, or an emulator set up, you can check the video version of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWoKlw5B86k

No.6 in the AROK/SLAY Summer competition and deservedly so. This is a complex SID to capture in terms of it's tricky arrangement and it's subtle eastern vibes. It manages to do both whilst taking the listener on Slaygon's own unique journey but never quite straying too far from the original. A truly 'different' kind of listen from the norm, here on Remix64. Well mixed & mastered too.

Absolutely deserving of 'Cinematic' as it reminds me so much of Hans Zimmer. The beat and melody are uncomplicated but satisfying. The arrangement and mix/master impacting, engaging and downright fkn brilliant 😊
