We had to send our sweet cat Charlie to heaven last week - he was only 10 months old and a very positive source of energy for our entire family. He was extra close to my heart and I’ve taken it pretty hard. I started working on my secret mixter track a day after he passed, and that night it was pouring rain in the dark night. I stood outside in the rain, just as this song describes, my tears blending with the raindrops. Suddenly I started dancing! Somehow it helped heal me, and this song was born.

Tanzmob’s remix of illi was such an awesome frame for this song, and I cut, chopped, and copied. His excellent production, sounds and changes really inspired me in a new way. Although I have no idea what he’s saying in the rap section, it felt right to include it :)

spinningmerkaba played upright Zeta bass for me (channeling Tony Levin) and I cut, zoomed, pasted, aligned. I felt like I was channeling Peter Gabriel! he also played a great trumpet track that i manipulated.

I’ll bounce pella and stems soon. Thanks for listening.

Dance in the Rain

Dance, dance, dance

I like to dance in the rain, head back, arms out
I like to dance in the rain, wash away my pain

Breaking down, make no sound

I’m gonna pray for the rain, give back this drought
I gotta dance in the rain, tonight that keeps me sane

To the ground, make no sound

And there’s a whisper riding on the wind
Singing slow down, slow down
Staying here when the eye draws near
Saying slow down, slow down

Rain, rain, rain

Like to dance, I like to dance
Like to dance, I like to dance

I like to dance in the rain, clear off my doubt
I love to laugh in the rain, shed what I can live without

And there’s a whisper riding on the wind
Singing slow down, slow down
Staying here when the Is draw near
Saying slow down, slow down

Breaking down, breaking down
To the ground, make no sound

Dance in the rain
Dance in the rain (repeat)

Breaking down, breaking down
Breaking down, make no sound

Editorial pick

Combining Peter Gabriel circa Peter Gabriel IV with modern Hip Hop sensibilities, Snowflake does what CCMixter does best: celebrating life, and giving source tracks their own new and very different life.
