Love the remix bro (especially the humble little break beat you thow in)
I thought the remix by DJ FBI was good but this is great. Nice work here. Up and down rythym and flowing atmosphere.

Really good Illusive - very uplifting and positive feel to this mix.

Thanks Matt & J CRYS.

I'm very happy with how this turned out, though I might fix a couple of glitches when I get home from work. (The postpartum critique kicks in!)

OK there were about 16 plays and 4 downloads, I've updated the audio where the vocals are now in sync in the last part of the track.

Ive noticed these vocs in the end, but i didnt mention it, because you said youd change the track when youd get home
I knew this would include these vocals!:D

Good work man. Your good with the nobs and mixing as well. I dig it especially the delayed keyboard synth.

illusivemind's picture

Cheers Teddy, every new track I make I seem to raise the bar for myself. Which is why I tend to take so long to make em!

Wicked job on this one illusivemind... Whats your next project gonna be? you got any more remixes your working on at the moment? Sounds like you have done alot with automation and tweeking in this track.

illusivemind's picture

Thanks Lawmouse,

Yeah I think the trick with projects like this is to finish them quickly which means consecutive chunks of working on them, in this case I think I spent two days, six or seven hours a piece to get this thing finished.
Otherwise it drags on and you get sick of all the little tweaks and the time it takes to try and polish it.

At the moment I'm working on a collab with Sole and then back to my own productions. The rate at which some MakeTuners produce music around here boggles my mind, I'm jealous!

Coolboy in the mix.

A bit of trivia.
The vocals are taken from a remix (possibly Miss Jane) which was less famous than the ATB remix of the original by Opus 3 which itself was a cover of the original song by Jane & Barton, you can listen to it here: http://www.sideload.com/cb/track/?id=313845.

More trivia, Hawkshaw's vocals were sampled by Orbital in their brilliant track, Halcyon. They're reversed and chopped up so you may not hear it at first.

Orbital - Halcyon +on +on
