Quotes: The greatness of Ennio Morricone, for us, is in his ability to express deep and complex emotions in a simple and minimalistic way. What we also love in his music is the influence of Mediterannean which can be felt throughout his music. It was a great honour to do a remix of a composition by such a great composer !!! Eddy & Dus (Croatia) / Morricone has doubtlessly a good sense for creating tunes you’ll immediately get hooked on. At the same time, the very sound of the melody is so catchy it makes up a part as vital to the track as the tune itself. To me, “A Man in Space” is a nice example for this. My remix of the track is mainly based on a variation of the original tune. Computerjockeys (Germany)
