To Jeff Bridges' and David Bowie's respective starmen Robbie Sabo adds his own celestially conjugated man, ReMixing an old, obscure 32X shooter named DarXide. Now, on some level, ALL 32X games are obscure - the "platform" wasn't Sega's finest hour and didn't exactly sell like hotcakes, although I myself had one - but DarXide is obscure even amongst 32X titles, which is really saying something. Akumajo B. writes:
"I've chosen to remix this track from the 32X game 'DarXide'. It's an awesome 3D update of Asteroids that had a fantastic soundtrack, and great graphics and gameplay. Obscure games need more recognition, and DarXide is one such game. Thankfully it is available for Symbian phones and Pocket PC's, so those of you with that hardware available to you, i URGE you to hunt this game down! I have a Nokia 6600, and i play it ritually every day:) You will not regret grabbing it in the SLIGHTEST... it's fantastic port (eclipsing the original in many ways), an a gem that deserves to be recognized as the downright classic that it is:)"
Consider yourself urged... Right from the start you get vocoded lyrics similar in spirit and execution to Electric Light Orchestra's Twilight; in fact, while the genre is more trance/disco/dance, there's an overall E.L.O. feel to the whole thing that's downright uncanny, from the romanticization of futuristic space travel to the whimsical arpeggios, vocal processing, and Day The Earth Stood Still synth solo circa 2'24". Being a fan (of ELO and Jeff Lynne in general), I'm definitely all about this mix, and it's sweeter since the melody's been resurrected and repurposed from the far depths of the gaming universe. When Robbie vocodes "To travel far beyond is just my master plan", he could easily be referring to his game selection for this piece, and as he himself notes, it's good to see obscure but deserving titles honored. Larry Ojisms:
"I've had nothing major to criticize, and this was cool stuff for a remix from such an obscure game. I'll admit, I didn't expect such awesome stuff from Robbie based on his Eternal Champions rejection from way back when. I knew he'd make it here, but at the same time I didn't think he'd be bringing the goods so consistently this soon and this impressively. Solid stuff per the usual, Robbie"
Following a memorable and similarly enthusiastic Bust a Groove mix from June, Robbie again illustrates an ability to put together catchy, hook-infused arrangements and temper them with a couple helpings of musical cheese while remaining tasteful, measured, and well-crafted. Good stuff, obscure game, and the healing power of VOCODER make this one for the whole family.

I have traveled across the sky;
A thousand million light years past the edge of time.
I take for granted what nobody can;
To travel far beyond is just my master plan.
I'm flying alone.
Don't cry, or I'll never get home.
