Progressive Mix 2017-02-26

I got suprisingly nice feedback after my previous mix, so decided to do some more. Here’s quick progressive mix. I don’t have a time yet for 2-hour Moments of Peace podcast, so I recorded something shorter – but this time live. Enjoy.

Kamille Louis – Still Waiting Remix

Another month, another remix contest.

Just before the deadline I finished a remix of Still Waiting by Kamille Louis. Good thing it’s shared in public and you can actually vote for it. The competition is strong though, mostly thanks to significant rewards.

Please vote here!

Now back to backyard: The original feels pretty uninspired. I guess the author had no idea what to do with, and neither had I – the genre was quite off :P. The basic idea was to use samples from remix pack as much as possible. I started down from cutting every sample out of it and procesing them until they ended up with something useful. The track is driven by polyrhythmic maracas (new technique to me) and basslines were resynthesized in Serum from original samples. The pads were also resynthesized with Harmor, though with poor results – mostly ending up with atonal textures. Second lead was chopped guitars playing MIDI extracted from generic drum loops – Ableton bread and butter.

Still, it eventually turned out to be pretty nice progressive house with a bunch of unusual sample FX. In fact it’s all about mixdown.

So it’s done. The next remix will be full-on trance at 140 BPM made from this. Should be quite straightforward.
