Fun. If you're like me, and I know I am, you dig David Lynch's original Dune film far more than the version Sci-Fi recently put out (which I felt had bad acting and cheesy special effects, personally). I'm a big Lynch fan in general, as those who might recall a Mulholland Drive thread on our forums a while back will remember. So, what does this have to do with a Rez ReMix by Mr_44? Well, in a neat little turn of events, he's laced his latest ReMix from Rez's techno soundtrack with audio samples from Dune, including classics like "the sleeper has awakened" "put your hand inside the box" etc. I felt a little cheated that "tell me of your home world" and the famous "I will kill him" refrain that Sting so eloquently delivered didn't make the cut, but the tunes is good and that's what's more important. Starting with basic kick-snare and a swirly digital pad, the bread-and-butter of the track comes in at 0'21" - a nice osc-sync synth that's just perfect for the track. You then get softer mangled drums and the Dune quotes start. Mr_44 then continues to largely implement chopping and splicing effects and some excellent screaming distorted synths along with more Dune bits for the life of the mix. Undoubtedly, the quotes won't be everyone's cup of tea, and some may wish it was straight music and that he'd left them out, but what can I say - I dig Dune and view it as immensely quotable. I can call 90% of the lines before the actors say them when I'm watching it (which annoys the hell out of everyone present but is still quite fun ^^) In fact, I'm gonna watch it right now. Musically viable and technically impressive mix from Mr_44, who has an edgy style with some very cutting timbres and precise audio manipulation, but the appeal of a mix like this will always rely at least in part to one's disposition towards Dune movie samples. To those that dig 'em, and enjoy a good techno-groove piece: highly recommended.
