Hey, cool - both prozax AND Midee worked on this bitchin' Lifeforce ReMix, and both are artists we don't hear from too often, so hopefully some faces will light up when they see this and ears when they ear it. This hard rock take on the classic Lifeforce tunage is particularly badass because, though it features a great deal of tearing guitar riffage, there's some synth soloing thrown in to boot, so no one feels left out. Things fade in with an almost Moody Blues style floaty space synth sound, as drums and guitar edge in to their full-on at 0'32". Right off the bat things are mixed up, with the guitar being doubled for a stereo tradeoff effect as the bassline fits right in with the kickin' drum kit quite snugly. There's a slick synth break that segues into some soloing that follows aftewards, leading to a unison play on the motif. There's then a brief but well-placed bass/drums fill. If it sounds like this is jam-packed with transitions into lots of different segments, it is - just like Club Kukeiha does things. In about five minutes, though motifs certainly tie the whole thing together, you've got a lot of distinct patterns that are rapidly but smoothly transitioned. I think early Konami stuff lends itself well to rock - many of the pieces were the right tempo, had a lot of solo-friendly melodies, and were rife with quick transitions and filled with a certain type of energy that, while it definitely can and has been captured and retooled with techno, seems to have a natural habitat in the realm of rock. Midee and prozax, formidable forces in their own right, team up here for a Lifeforce tour-de-force. And that's a lot of force. Excellent integration of the respective mixers' sounds, solid transitions, and verve to spare. Kickin'.
