wow, this was great!! love the adds you did, the little flourishes, the pad strings, and especially that little stutter guitar drop out thing after the initial instrumental break after the first verse. :)

you also balanced the tracks out nicely, evened the drum track volume out and balanced the guitars nicely.

excellent job, and honestly, i’m really flattered i inspired you to do this and it’s put a smile on my face this morning. superb.

great style & soul in the writing, vocal performance & mix. i’m gonna take some time now to listen to sunbyrn’s songlist. (sure, he’s been here since ‘05, but i’m not especially bright!). great listen.

I loved what MCJitB did, and I must say what you’ve changed makes for an equally moving track… sometimes it’s not about reinventing the wheel, but just about some tweakage.

Your “slight changes” are super. I think it is nice because you kept the heart of the original piece and then built on that… sort of picked it up where it was not really left off. Your addition adds another level/dynamic and gives new development that accents and transcends what was already a super piece. Kind of like standing on the shoulders of giants.

You know - I had described what I did to your track as a very selfish thing in the sense that I was only thinking of changing it to fit my taste and nobody else’s.

But here I see by doing that it actually works for others too - I think you took what was a good concept and elevated to something that I really, really enjoy. The tweaking is all in the right places - enhances what was good about it and adds just the right stuff.

Nice work.

i think it depends on the attitude of the artist being “remixed”. i think if you cut too close to the cloth, it just seems like repackaging, which some may take offense to. But that’s the risk you take adding your source tracks, and i’d much rather have a great producer like DK “enhance” my remix than someone muck it up by trying to reconstruct it in it’s original arrangement wrong.

in some ways, it’s like a cover of a cover. and while my cover might deviate more from the previous version, as i mentioned i’m flattered and humbled that my little version inspired DK to create his version.

i think it’s easier (and people are more open to the idea) here since we so freely give our stuff away, but as you mention mickael, i have done this myself (remixed close to the original but feeling like i “improved” it), gotten grief for it, and removed the track without fanfare. for the time and effort i put in to my version, it wasn’t worth the bad vibe i got from the person i remixed. no problem. i moved on. but like i said, it depends on the artist i think.

The role of an executive producer is very underated. I should know. !

You have presented the orignal work in a very polished wrapper. Nice DK, nice.

After to have listened to the work of McJ, now i hear your work more like a very good collaboration. The remix of Mc is really excellent, but you have succeeded to transcend his work..Man, your sens of the production is absolutely impressive..
