While i don't really like the Kraftwerk sound too much, and while it's easy to recongnize a standard Reason refill "riff" and drumpattern beneath the tune shape, i really love this remix.
Wobber is a great remixer and his tunes always sound catchy and clever, played with crystal clear and "sexy" sounds; anyway this time his music sounds a bit different, probably darker and quite cold, but the result is as usual very unique and, by all means, unforgettable.
I must repeat, i really love this remix; every time it happens that i listen to it on Slay Radio it's like a cold blow of wind in my face: if you prefer hot summer days keep away, otherwise try to "feel" this Wobber's work, i think it deserves your attention.

If you are looking for a perfect Sanxion remix, download this one from Lou Gray: is absolutely fantastic!! This very rich electronic version of the Hubbard classic sounds like a real J.M.Jarre production, a must if you (like me) love electronic music.
The only problem with this remix is in the ending: the music fades too fast, without any reason: it seems like has been cut or, worse, unfinished. I'd like Lou would give a better ending to this, otherwise, masterpiece.

If you are looking for a Bruce Lee remix, this one from Rezistah is by far the best choice. While it sounds minimalistic (just a simple drum pattern, a rubber bass and a synth), the samples are clear, well equalized and mixed, there are some good ideas here and there, and in a word everything sounds good.
I'm just disappointed for the last two notes of the melody, that are wrong! I think this is a very great feature in a song with five or six notes at all :-)
Anyway, i love this remix so i suggest you to give it a look.

Ok, Marcel had the idea to put the POTA melody on the Jarre's MagneticFileds-2 drums section (sigh! I had the same idea for a Bruce Lee remix that, now, will never be released).
Ok, Marcel as usual made, technically, a perfect work as near everything sounds very good, BUT i really can't stand the lead: it sounds too loud and, in my opinion, it isn't equalized in the right way with the rest of the track.
In other words i think that with a more appropriate lead instrument this remix could be easily sold as a commercial work, but now, with this jarring (i mean strident) melody, i wouldn't put it on my radio-car with someone else to listen with me.

I love this version of Cobra made by Cytex. It sounds relaxing and runs smooth without boring the listener with useless drums sections or with a too long introducion. The only fault is in the lead instrument, a synth trumpet, that plays easy the melody but has no dynamics and the loop can be heard sometimes.
Anyway there is a simple but great idea behind this remix, so i think it deserves to be downloaded and put in your c64-remix collection.

This remix is not so bad! It has some Tangerine Dream echoes, and sounds quite good. I don't like only the Commando section, but the whole work deserves some consideration.

Is it possible that this remix lies so down in the chart?
Ok, it doesn't sound commercial, has no rhetorical constructions or structures, even the drum path sounds strange and the lead vocal track is a bit too reverberated to melt perfectly with the music carpet, but - no doubt - this version of Dragon's Lair II is by far one of the most original remixes on the RKO.
Chosc had some very good ideas, like the way many sounds enter and exit from the (quite repetitive) melodic texture, and like the fusion of electronic sounds (keybords and bass) with the indian-like singing and percussions, ending the tune with the "European" classical sound of the pipeorgan. The result is, in my opinion, very artistic and, even if undoubted very dark and a bit gloomy, it may be considered a fair example of the way a C64-remix should be done.
