Super high energy and totally cohesive. I appreciate the ability to make disparate pieces sound like they were all meant to be together, and you’ve definitely done that here. Really like it.

The way you mix samples together is so natural you’d think this was all produced with source that was created specifically for this track. Seamless and filled with texture, you take remixing to the next level. Amazing! Bouncing in my chair as I type this!

Right on, thank you, spinningmerkaba, I appreciate your feedback and I’m happy you were moved by it!
Yeah, I try to trim and modify cuts just enough to fit, and there are those rare moments the keys match :)

Very cool mix.
It would be so much fun to edit footage of fireflies to beat-match this. With some psychedelic fx of course.

And I thought of/wrote that before I heard the perfect ending. :)

Awesome, I love that visual, it definitely would realize the little concept I had for the track.
Thank you, Speck, I’m glad you liked it :)

I am so impressed with this track, I’m blown away! So many sounds, so simple a mix, yet the complexity is subtle indeed. I bow to your skills once again!

I’ve been enjoying this tune over and over, trying to identify each part, and am truly awed by how you arranged it. I had it on repeat this morning in the car while I was on a 1 and a 1/2 hour drive. I’m glad my wife didn’t mind me doing that lol, but she enjoyed it as well, since she never stopped tapping her feet :-)

Heck, she liked your remix better than she liked mine lol.

Subliminal said it, except I don’t have the power of Ed. Pick. This should be up there with the others.

SNAP!!! Classic Apoxode with Subliminal sounds. YES. Love the beats, energy, and super-fun vocal snippets. This is a BLAST!

Dude! Your imagination is immense. You must also have extraordinary focus to create such cohesive music from so many different bits and pieces. Bravo!

Thank you so much, SackJo22, that is very kind of you :)
Yeah, I tend to become quite immersed, often to the point of mania … but in a good way :)

“Bloody hell!” That was my first thought when I saw the number of samples you had used. And “Bloody hell!” was also my second thought while listening to the remix. It’s pretty insane (in a good way of course). It’s a lot of fun hearing all these snippets from uploads that I had almost forgotten about. (There’s another one. :-) )

Your remixing skills are unsurpassed and would deserve an ed pick. Not only for the effort, but also for the result. But as Emily once said to me, it would be über-tacky to ed-pick a remix of my own source material.

Anyway, thanks!!

(And apologies for the somewhat late review. When I saw the e-mail this morning I uploaded my remix and then hit the shower, before going for a walk and doing other stuff.)

Yes! That is good to hear, Subliminal, I am overjoyed to know you liked it!
Thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot to me :)

I want to state for the record that this song sounds great in my car!

Awesome, thank you, kthugha, I appreciate your support!
I’m glad you got a jam for the road, lol, I know what you mean.
Come to think of it, that would be a cool sample for a mix … “this song sounds great in my car!”
Then follow it up with some 808s, Miami style :)

Exquisite slicing, dicing, splicing…and a lot of fun. Saved this for next to last listen, got a late start but at least had fresh ears tonight. And you’re right about the keys, this has amazing chromatic cohesion.

Nice, that is very kind of you, Mr_Yesterday, thank you so much !
Yeah, I know what you mean, I take my time listening to all of the new material. In the past, I have found that trying to power through all of the remixes at once leads to a decline in appreciation.

Thank you, but … not sure why you added a Google Drive link with the track?
