Process

I placed the DJ lang guitar part as a wave file into Sawcutter, and sequenced the basic melody. It was then a slow keyboard bpm without a lot of "hop". I loaded the wave file resulting into slicer, and used the settings smooth, pitch and pan--about 3 minutes into the Sliced piece, this jazz version awoke.

Other Notes

I chose to apply a telephone effect to the vocal as the setting in my mind is two people who should be together but are apart.

I chose to keep it very simple, although I thought some slow brush rides and things might help it--and even a little guitar or horn solo. I decided, though, that less is more on this one. I'd love to hear someone else try a full-bodied remix.
