I really don’t know why I did this, but I’m kinda glad I did. I really like the result.
Basically I re-watched The Neverending Story and the nostalgia hit me like a machine gun. That scene where Artax drowns in the Swamp of Sadness is pretty dreadful, sure. But the music is pretty iconic. For some reason, I decided to make my own version. A prog house version, to be specific.
I hope you like it, but I won’t apologise for resurfacing any unpleasant suppressed memories about the scene.
If you like it, you can download it from Soundcloud here or from my R.MIX section.
“The Theme of Sadness” was written and composed by Klaus Doldinger.
Without going into too much detail, 2014 wasn’t the best year. Still, I had some awesome gigs at Neko Nation and a set at Reclaim the Streets.
My Neko Nation set from October is probably the best I’ve ever done and can be listened to here:
Also, with the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies released in cinemas, I thought “Why not? For old time’s sake.” and reprised Annie Lennox’s Into The West from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
