I've earlier said that there isn't much to remix with The Hitman, but I changed my mind and tried to make a mix from the song.
There are no majore changes, except some (small) things.
Please leave a comment when downloaded/listened :).

enjoy it.

This track wants professionally remixing from scratch. It's such a weak production - everything needs beefing up, particularly the drums. This should have been Innuendo's one heavy rocker, but instead, it's a let down - and worse still, they couldn't even give it a proper ending!

That said, I like what you've done with it, Dan - your recent mixes have been very listenable, but it's still a crap sounding track, without that being your fault. Hopefully, if Innuendo ever comes out with a 5.1 mix, Hitman will be a better mix than the original, and we can have a good play with it.

Nice extended edit/mix indeed. Really adds some interesting bits and pieces here and there that certainly make it more listenable. I especially liked the extended guitar soloing parts.

Only bad thing for me would be that, "it's magic" sample.

As for Fickle's comment about it needing beefed up. I can only say that a hefty altered mastering would change its feel more. I'll look into that later tonight.

Peace,
Adam.

P.S. I just listened to my copy of Innuendo that I processed a few years back. Nothing radical, but certainly it's a helluva lot nicer than this one used by Daniel. Would you wish me to post it Daniel?

Sure, could always make another version ;)

I know it'll just get more MP3 compressed and that's no good. But it's all I have. Still, I'm sure you'll notice it's a little livlier.

*Applauds loudly* Dan, this is a FIVE STAR mix...wow...I actually like this MUCH better than the original!! This is almost what I had in mind, but just with more powerful drums and the such brought forward, but this is and has to be the the best mix I've heard you do...esp. with the little bit that you had to work with. But I tell you that i hear things in the song that I never heard before, such as certain guitar bends and dives and riffs that were just hidden behind other phrases and whatnot. Genius remix Dan!! Give yourself a major pat on the back for your efforts!!
