I've never played Sanxion. Hell, I'd never even heard of it before d0d0 submitted this ReMix. But I have a newfound respect for both the game and its composer, Rob Hubbard, after listening to this techno concoction of power that one of OCR's regular c64 ReMixers has conjured. This is just some boom-diggity, rockin' hard techno, no doubt about it. I feel that John had a bit more fun making this particular ReMix than usual - it's not just the menacing, Pink Floyd DSOTM-esque laughter and "fear of the lord" samples or the relentless stomping beat, but also some of the transitions and synth lines are over-the-top, not pulling any punches. I think the one key bit that gives it a lot of vitality is the Rebirth-style 303 synth bass pattern that comes in 'round 2'56" - up until this point this element had been primarily restricted to offbeats, and giving it the spotlight here was a great move. The other bit I absolutely love is the tricky change to swing time at 2'30" - totally threw me for a loop the first time, as the beat emphasis switches temporarily to more of a roadhouse rock bass thing, kinda like the Zillion ReMix I did a while back. This is one of the best breakaways I've heard in a hard techno track, as it's not your garden-variety ambient "drop all drums" break but goes further into messing with swing. Groovalicious - a slick idea, slickly implemented. There's also good percussion effects to augment the direct, no-frills drums. Intense, interesting, intelligent, innovative, and many other positive adjectives beginning with "i" come to mind - I urge each of you to check it out regardless of your familiarity with the source material (but check out the SID, too) - I don't think you'll be disappointed. Recommended.
