Story

Joachim Wijnhoven (aka Yogibear) got in touch with me last summer, asking if I'd like to collaborate on a remix. I didn't feel very confident in my music making abilities at the time, so we put this idea on hold.

 

A month ago, he sent me his remix for a SID I had never heard and it seemed like the perfect time to dive in and try this collab thing out.

 

I enjoyed working with Yogi and appreciated his patience and honesty, something I was keen to stress at the start.  If he didn't like something I wanted to know, which he did and we tore up and rearranged sections many times to arrive at this remix.

 

My first attempt evolved into this cheesy pop song, like something you'd hear at Eurovision or playing over the top of football highlights.  I found myself  strangely drawn to it but it wasn't quite right.  It's not a style of music I normally make.  That said, I might finish it up at some point to see how it goes down.

 

I have a tendancy to go off and do my own thing especially in this case where there isn't a lot to work with from the original SID; just a simple melody and a modulation. 

 

I tried to keep that in check as I had Yogi's remix to keep me on track.

 

So what we have here is new lead sections from myself and Yogi sandwiched between the original SID in an 80s style package.

 

We hope you like it.

Awesome!
Thx Tim & Yogi
The production is high with this one, great SID it's my first time hearing this one. Gives me 80's TV intro vibes. A perfect remix!
Could've been the intro of a TV show from the 80s. Well done. Drums need a little more presence for my taste but hey....:)
I'm back in the 1980's watching a movie
Brilliant remix!

This track has such a relaxed vibe right from the start with some serious 80s TV series nostalgia sound blended into it. It's very diverse with clearly distinctive sections and energy levels to keep it interesting till the very last second. My personal highlight is the funky lead that kicks in at 1:24, right till the break - no, it's not the end 😉. I enjoyed the added lead section from 2:18 too. And if you weren't convinced yet of its 80s sound, just listen to the echo drums as of 3:06. The small details like at 3:39 and later help to make this one of my personal favorites so far in 2022.
