There is a weird problem embedding this track. Please go to SoundCloud to listen until I solved this: https://soundcloud.com/omnidextrous/telocin
The word Telocin is actually the name of Ed's wife spelled backwards. For more info on Ed Starink and his music, visit Starink World. For more info on my planned "Ed Starink Greatest" album, visit the dedicated topic in the Ed Starink forum.
In 1977, Vangelis released his epic "Spiral" album with the evenly epic title song. In 1989, Ed Starink released a cover version of this song on various synthesizer albums, most notably the successful Synthesizer Greatest series released by Arcade. In 1991, I did my own cover version on a Roland SoundCanvas, using Ed's cover as a guide.
Now it's been 35 years since the release of the original Spiral by Vangelis and I felt like doing a fresh cover of this songs now I have some better quality equipment. I based my cover on the original version, some elements from Ed Starink's cover and some of my own 1991 cover. Hence the Cover³ title.
My good friend Thomas de Vries is a big fan of what I like to call "beep music", so this was just a little 'over the weekend' fun experiment to create a remix with all sorts of bleeps and blops in it. Besides the ultimately annoying starting beep sound, an even more annoying "riser" effect and other bleepyness, you can hear the epic bleepy riff from the famous 80s series Knight Rider in the remix. I also used the hihats and rims shot percussion from the Knight Rider theme and of course I needed to add the famous K.I.T.T. scanner sound at the end. ;-)
Besides the Knight Rider samples and various AU plugins you can also hear the voice stack sample from the Fairlight CMI synthesizer that was made world famous by the Art of Noise, who used this epic synth and its sounds in almost all of their productions.
