Eivind Sommersten - Chordian
This must be at least my fifth attempt to remix this gem of a song from JCH - my favorite c64 musician - but it has proven very difficult to find a working arrangement which also includes most of the bits from the original.
Made with Ableton Live. There's a whole lot going on but the external synths used are Massive and Massive X.
First of all, excellent job on the bass, it just cuts through the mix and it sounds fantastic in my headphones! Also, excellent choice on the instrumentation, it all works together very well.
What I am not a fan of in this remix is the overall arrangement - somehow it just doesn't mesh with me, and the impact of the tune is lost on me. Which is hard for me to say, because I really like the original SID. I am also not a big fan of that synthy lead sound, but maybe it'll grow on me.
So, from a technical perspective, it's a really good piece, but I think more could've been done here to increase its emotional impact.
