Perfect nothing with: Jan Hammer – Crockett’s Theme (Vice City Vacation Version) #Ambient #Chill #Electronic #Synth #Remix

Here’s a remixed classic. It’s so familiar in its original form that part of me isn’t entirely sure whether I’m enjoying this for the memories or because it’s a great remix. I think it’s a great ambient remix of a classic. The track is Crockett’s Theme by Jan Hammer. And the remix is provided by Perfect Nothing.

Jan Hammer is an 80s synth legend. This track is also legendary, coming as it does from 80s mega TV show Miami Vice. The show that lanched a thousand hairstyles, pastel jackets with the cuffs turned up and that whole T-shirt and jacket combo. But those memories aren’t enough to sustain us on synth fumes alone.

Perfect Nothing are described as coming from Iceland and as “an uplifting, ambient music project by two Tathagata Buddhas.” Fair enough. The original track is one of those 80s dreamy synth compositions but with an almost rock guitar sense and a bouncy beat. All neon lit sunset and cocktails. The remix oddly sounds as if it should be the original. The cheap 80s beats are dumped in favour of something more beatless and so slower and more dramatic. This is all about the space and the chill. Notes slowly tumble towards you in a constantly rotating arc. The sound of a tropical sunset. This is forever cocktail hour. Beautiful.

  1. Not bad, but it’s not as good as the original. Hats off for trying something new, but they slowed it down too much.
