Here’s a change of pace. This is a remix of a song on the Cambridge-MT site. (I did it with with my son - he’s all the synthy parts. ) It’s a remix of Heart Peripheral by AM Contra. Tracks and original version can be found here. https://cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/#AMContra
If you DO listen to the original, you can hear this version is quite different. We went for a “lo-fi chill” remix.
Well, I do really like the original song and mix found on the great Cambridge-MT library, so I was very curious to listen to a remix on this (and not another mix).
I really like the overall mood, tempo change, song/arrangement choices and I found it works really well to me.
The final solo is another great idea to me!
I do enjoy those 4 minutes of music and it has it own fingerprint which isn’t easy while remixing song.
Congrats for all this great stuff, and for both of you!
Mixing-wise, I only find the low-mid frequency area a bit burried and maybe a little cut on these would help
Remixing-wise, I might play with some ping-pong delays on vocal to add some point of interests, like some strong cuts and glitches to create some more obvious transitions.
By the way, it is a very pleasant piece of music to me. Now, I am very curious to listened to another work from your duo (expectation? maybe)
Hi Phil, thanks for the listen and comments! I suppose that’s one good thing about Covid - it’s an opportunity to spend more time with my 2 teenagers. If the world were still “normal”, they’d be hanging out with friends, working, going to school, and avoiding their parents.
I’m not certain what you mean by this comment? It seems contradictory. (?)
We did a remix of one of Cristina’s songs - “Moment of Weakness” on here a while ago that I never really quite finished, but it’s here somewhere. We also did this one few years ago now…
That’s a great recasting of the original @miked , totally different vibe and you didn’t change the tempo right? Very creative vision and sweet and mellow arrangement, minimal but very effective. You don’t have to add more bass but I think it could be a good addition, it’s a little bit empty down there as is. AM Contra should hire you guys!
