Well this one went under the radar a little bit. Over a year and no review thread? Welp.

Operation Pulse (remix) & (Live Remix)

Well the Operation Pulse remixes are a little more uneventful, some of it's parts have different arrangement and some different details. The Live Remix has the original climax with a new take on the melody itself which makes it a bit more exciting but generally I didn't really care for these two remixes. The original is such a masterpiece there's not much you can do with it honestly.

Stars (Warped Remix)
Stars Starstuffing in a black hole instead? If you felt the original wasn't crazy enough he literally warped the melodies sound like they're being eaten out from inside. It's a lot less light as this remix is filled with darker moments of bubbling acid or otherwisely unnerving atmosphere. It's mental, a worthy successor to the original, though now I'm interested in hearing a version of just Stars.

Navigate (Pitch Down The World Remix)
Well first off the mix on this sounds very muddy. I don't know if this is intentional or just age taking it's toll, but it sounds much less sharp than the rest of the mixes. It's basically navigate with pitch adjustments and generally slower tempo. There's also many interesting parts like a break at 4:44 where he's just messing about with a knob and some high pitched sounds. And then a part after 5:50 where it just sounds like the track is literally dying, very funny. It's an interesting take on the track, but it's also holding back on the remix part imo, it still generally feels like the original track whereas I would have prefer ed to see it completely broken down, especially the main melodies.

The Snuggling Snail (live remix)
This one reminds me of how Etnica remixed their tracks, albeit could use a tad more grooveyness. It really goes out on creating more madness on top of the existing framework. A great example is a part at 5:29 where the melodies are coupled with wicked pleiadians-esque synth. Same goes for the ending. Another interesting track.

Ultimator (Ultimated Remix)
This one was already released and I've heard people say it's the best Filteria track ever. It very well could be! Also maybe one of the most intense remixes ever too. It's spaced out, it's emotional, it's maximal, it's clever and has perfect production. If you took best bits of Heliopolis/Sky Input era and crammed it into one track this would be the result. Absolutely an epic grand voyage'.

Generally it's what you'd expect from a bunch of remixes (remastered might I add). A new(er) take on an old track. So how does it hold up? For the most part, definitely! What else? It's only 6€ and all funds go directly to support the artist. Worth it.

On another note I would love to see this happen again! Maybe some other unreleased tracks (like that one compilation that had 2 tracks that were never released) and remixes from Filteria AND KOB? I'm sure there are more and I'm also sure there are people ready to eat it up.

Whoa ! never knew this existed. Thanks for bringing to my attention, will buy. Filteria's set was one of the highlights at Boom 2014 for me.

How in the world am I finding out about this for the FIRST TIME today?!?!

 

I searched Suntrip's Shop but couldn't find it on there. This is great. I love that he went back and remixed such already awesome tracks with new improvements and skills. Great work and mastering!

 

Listen to it here. It's so good. I bet most Filteria fans don't even know this exists! :blink: ?!

...one of his best IMO. I think i bought it from Janniz himself through Bandcamp when it was released.

On second look I've grown fonder of Operation Pulse Live Remix and Navigate Pitch Mix

Really awesome stuff here. Haven't heard the Sky Input tracks for awhile, but this throws you right back to a time when goa was making its comeback. Blistering sound with layers of melody that will take your breath away.
