Steve Foster - Cybernoid II
Welcome back! It's always nice to see a remixer come back with a release after a long hiatus.
Pretty straightforward arrangement that is fairly faithful to the original. I guess, the main issue I have with this remix is the mixing - it sounds too washed out, and sounds like it was over-filtered.
I am unsure how to feel about the arpeggios in the first minute, rather than, say, using chords instead. Sure, the SID arpeggios sound retro, but I could've imagined this part with chords, too.
The drums also seem to
disappear in the mix, but as I said, that's a general issue in this track. I especially miss the punchiness of the kick drum and the impact of the snare.
Overall, a solid arrangement with an underlying mixing issue.
