Very nice composition, however if we're talking compo here then I'm afraid it's somewhere 10 years behind. If we have older sound design then it has to has a motherf0king impress ratio. This piece has potential for it, but didn't [yet] delivered.

On the [very] positive note - 8580. I'm supprised no one commented. An oldtimer moving on the chip is very promising (same as with GRG), you only need to make sure the player you use is able to use it as much it can (99% of old players can't).

Looking forward to hear moar, your nickname has it's place in my mind from the days of old. Thanks!

Great one!

does "Compo Edit" mean, there's a longer version yet to be released?

Didn't immediately like it at party (probably due to really high set expectations), but after a couple of listens now at home it really grows. Hoping for more Zardax tunes! :)

my fault is in that i expected more, after hearing all the circulating rumours that Zardax did his best tune ever for the compo. namely, i looked forward to "Retrograd 2" ;) still a decent, inspired and moving one, this!

Maybe I'm a little bit biased but I can't get enough of this tune. Let me also tell you that this version was pretty quickly squeezed 1 min off from the original at the partyplace (therefore it's called compo edit). The original full-length version will follow in the furthercoming ALD music-collection.

The same as with GRG tune. I have been waiting to have a proper listening at home. I knew I would not be disappointed :)

I keep hearing Jarres Rendez-vous part II together with this. Mashup in my head.
