Since we are all stuck at home with the Coronavirus lockdown, The Midnight announced few days ago a Remix Contest to help boredom during those hard times.
They let artists choose between 4 tracks, “Los Angeles”, “Explorers”, “The Comeback Kid” and “River of Darkness.
Remixes are quite fun to make usually, it’s a good way to show composition creativity with vocals.
It’s actually one of Lueur Verte’s favorite exercise to do, as he did many remixes in the past, it was a pretty good challenge to make specially knowing that there was a one week deadline!

Lueur Verte actually finished his entry for the contest in just 4-5 days.
You can listen to the remix below and compare it to the original track right under the remix.
Original track by The Midnight:
Terminator has always been a source of inspiration for many Synthwave artists, not only for its incredible retro futuristic atmosphere but also for its dark and epic soundtrack.
Brad Fiedel’s work is very inspiring and has definitely marked a big step in the Retrofuture/Cyberpunk genre.
French artist Lueur Verte did a remake of the “Terminator Theme”, with this work, he makes his own tribute with some re-arrangement of the track.
Cover created by Lueur Verte
Skynet’s cyber war representation fits very well with Lueur Verte’s “Terminator Theme”.
The Endoskeleton has always been such a fascinating character, his strength and determination are feared by all.
