Lizardking – Lizardking’s Theme (Armandox Rework)

It was about time I did another remix for the Amiga/C64 demoscene, which still has a great following.

I’ve always wanted to do a remix of this track, as it is so close to my heart composition-wise. I love how Gustaf Grefberg works with chord-progressions, and especially in this tune let’s the bass run chromatically lower and lower against those chord-progressions. Sorry if that sounds nerdish, but if you had any form of musical education in your life and know a bit about solfege you know what I’m talking about. That being said, I think it is one of the hallmarks of a great composer and I’m proud to have been able to do this remix, keeping as much true to the original as possible. I wanted this remix to come out as an improved version of the original. Admittedly I did this remix totally by ear (I haven’t taken a look at the MOD in Protracker or such to see what chords are played) as I wanted to challenge myself and wanted maybe also to put a little bit of my own vibe to the track, as you mostly can hear in the bassline, which is not done with a step-sequencer or drawn into the ‘piano-roll’ by the way, but played by hand (as all parts in this remix)…

I hope you will enjoy my take on Lizardking’s Theme
