I built out this Kylie Minogue remix a few years back using Reason and Studio One and it remains one of my favorite remixes because the arrangement came so easily, and the final mix is exactly what I was imagining in my head.
My workhorse laptop from 2002 is now dead. Thanks to my stupidity. But it served me well. And much longer than I thought it would. Here are the last 4 tracks I ever made on that machine.
My Ethnic Mix for the Bukas Palad track “All Shall Be Well,” which is a little world music, a little drum & bass, a little acid jazz. And all groovy.
Emorej (aka Jerome Llama) took my lyrics and set it to a beautiful melody. I then took the vocal track and constructed a mournful worldbeat track with a little drum-n-bass in the chorus. This worldbeat/ethnotronica remix was produced using Acid Pro and some VSTi’s. I posted the track back in 2009. As I recall, Emorej loved it.
Stuck on a musical idea? Here are 2 possible solutions: share it and sit on it. This is the story of how I got stuck on a song idea and how doing those two actions allowed the song to evolve into something much better than its original.
