My attention the past few days has been dedicated to 1) The International and 2) sleep. One of those has been sacrificed for the other, I'll let you guess which.
Took a too-long nap yesterday and wound up not getting to go to sleep until around 4, so I ended up randomly shuffling through my iTunes looking for something to remix.
I came across Beck's "Dark Star," and that opening drum break was too much to pass up on:
So, after about two hours or so this came out. (I realized later I'd misnamed the track, whoops).
This is one I'm pretty satisfied with, given the time it took to make it. Lemme know what you think in the comments.
Last week saw another track getting the ol' VAPOR touch, this time rerubbing Quench's trance classic, "Dreams."
Now this one took a little more work to get it where I wanted. The original hovers somewhere around 140 bpm, and my ultimate goal with these is to use them as hip-hop beats. Humans can't really get up to 140, so I halftimed it down to around 70 (then sped it up a hair).
This required the addition of my own drums, which have always been my downfall, I can never get them to sound quite right or pack the punch I'm looking for, but I think it turned out as a pretty good proof of concept.
Stay tuned for more shitty remixes, folks.
