Here’s a glitchy, noisy, drum & bass remix I made for a track by artist and former University of the Philippines art professor, Fatima Lasay. The remix takes the original track and slices it into many more more chaotic pieces, adding drums and an overt rhythm section where once there was none. How I did it, follows.
Several years back, the quirkily entertaining Philippine indie band Ciudad released an album with the affectionate title: Is That Ciudad? Yes, Son It’s Me. My favorite track was easily an acoustic ballad with Ciudad asking (former Nirvana drummer and now Foo Fighters leader) Dave Grohl to please return to drumming instead of playing guitar. The title of the track? “That Guy from Nirvana is Now With Foo Fighters.” Here’s my unofficial remix of their track.
I decided to try creating a remix for Porta’s first track “(I’m A) Loser” — and I wanted it to be more laidback and closer to the original tempo. And this is the outcome. It’s a short track. Still rock. Still lo-fidelity. But with a little Acid42 jazziness and of course, some electric organ.
Back in 2006 (I think), I put together a remix of Christina Aguilera’s “Aint No Other Man.” The acapella track was well done, inspiring me to sequence a some bouncy beats and semi-aggressive synth lines. I put the mp3 up on Imeem a while back but since Imeem’s been bought by MySpace, the playlists haven’t returned. So here it is again. Where it belongs. Enjoy!
Here’s a remix I made for Jemex’s track “Palma.” Combining some of the piano melody with a big, booming breakbeat, this remix tried to create a gritty, urban atmosphere to the ambient, melodic parts in the original track.
