Yay, Spacesynth! It's cool to see another Spacesynth & Italo enthusiast around here. I'm not that familiar with the source, but it definitely has this Laserdance-like vibe to me. Good job (apart from the notes on the timecodes that Larry mentioned), enjoyed it!

Also great to know that you don't need (want) expensive synths and samples for this but freebies are all you need :)

I remember receiving an excited gtalk message early last year from Mike about a mix he was working on and confusingly being asked to record the phrase "Soviet Cosmonaut", which I captured while standing in my kitchen. Great to see the track finally posted, one of Mike's strongest IMO. 10/10

Oh that is a sexy beat right from start. The gif that Txai posted above fits this perfectly :D There's literally nothing to fault here, everything fits together perfectly and makes for an amazingly cosmic astral space trip. To infinity and beyond! [5/5]

It's almost as if Zangief's theme traveled back to the 80s, did a workout to an exercise tape, then did a training montage, and then came back to the 90s to kick everyone's ass. That's what I get out of this addictive ear worm of an arrangement. Not only is it a great arrangement, but it does a great job capturing the feel of the Street Fighter series.

God, I really do love the italo disco genre. So cheesy and fun and this is certainly that. I've been meaning to break into Bitwig and this might just be the boost I needed. This is probably the most fun remix I've heard in a while. Awesome work dude!:)

Reminds me of when Metal Zangief showed up in the background of SF4's Cosmic Elevator stage. Would be very fitting for our favorite Red Cyclone to bust a move in space with a tune like this. This sounds extremely 80's and I totally dig hearing more spacesynth, which Zangief's theme fits into nicely. Cool title as well. Awesome mix, man!
