Pure nostalgia! 80s combined with chip tune sound, a treat for both of my ears!!
Superb
Good attempt on a SID that was remixed 44 time before this one. I really like the style. Maybe the drums get buried sometimes but that could also be my old ears, so nevermind. :D
Great '80s sound!
Great tune! Very pleasant sound.

The chip fashion samples, the full energetic percussions, the melody that is always her but with a scent of deep saudade: now I'm in battle mode and I can't stay still, I need to moooove!

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.
