Story

A few days ago Johannes Bjerregaard passed away at the age of 52. We were both composers on the Commodore 64 computer in our teens and both members of the group Maniacs of Noise.

He was my mentor and a huge inspiration when I was young. His melodies taught me how to phrase and how to make them breath, when to set in the (right amount of) vibrato. He did the impossible with the 3 voice SID chip. For me he was the best of them all.

Even though we never met in real life he has been my hero ever since and it saddens me we will never be able to meet, nor that I can express my gratitude.

This is an homage to his legacy called Sweet.

What a heartfelt and emotional piece this is. It has all the feeling of the original intact and is such a lovely tribute to the sadly missed Johannes Bjerregaard. It's haunting, it's dark and yet powerfully melodic at the same time with so much emotion. It's hard to describe, but there's just so many wonderful moments to this remix.
