A refreshing take to this famous pella, also thanks to urmymuse. I have ivan chew’s version (with colab and teru)on my mp3 player since 2009 and I listened to it 1000 times, so this is really something new and beautiful. The end is abrut, what’s happened? The highlight is the doubled narva9 in the second part and in the ending, really cool.

Exciting, full, high-energy mix! It strikes me as very well-balanced… such an enjoyable listen. Well done, Mr. DICE!

I’ve always so liked urmymuse’s wall of guitars sound. You’ve really used it to full potential here, crafting an early eighties new age song that would have held up quite well if you could slip a time traveled LP into the hands of an 80s DJ. :)

I like the vibe on this, a good summery 80’s hit.

Thanks man this is fantastic :) The harmonisation on Narva9 vocal works really well.

hmm….reminds me to my teenage years when “alternative” was not only a music style but also a way of living…

this is undoubtedly a hit. as i listened i intended to Ed Pick but i’m wondering if you cut-off a piece of the ending in your bounce? brilliant song, production, treatment, harmonies, etc. it’s as though these stems were recorded together in a studio. fantastic.
Thanks for your kindness, Snowflake. I wasn’t confident on this mix.
Cutting the end (suddendly like this), was a decision I took at the last evening. Maybe was too brutal. I think I’ll upload a new version without cuts.
Im really glad you appreciated :)) Thanks again.

Agree with all of the above! Summer memories - like listening to a classic hit but with a fresh, new angle.

Solid rock/pop remix I like these kind of stuff

I’m with Keytronic on this…it reminds me of a very cool alternative pop music era when being different was an aspiration an not an insult. Thanks for bringing those memories back to mind. Great track

Very nice track! I love this kind of music when pop and rock are embracing. Nice playing. Fits perfectly to Narva´s cool voice.

I agree - very summery, very 80s and good listening :-)

This is a fantastic alt-pop treatment of one of my all-time favorite ccMixter songs. LOVE, LOVE LOVE it!
