Well driven, the music and spoken word reinforce one another. This is no easy task, as one misstep can neutralize either or both. In this case, the edgy robo-rock creates an effacing, dystopian context from which our heroine Kara Square emerges — defiantly, righteously. In this scenario, it is not the corporate abuse of power against which she rallies, but the individual complacency which makes it possible. This track demands a video, but only one of equal strength — and one which matches your arpeggios with rapid cuts.

Thanks, yea, and buying power is an important vote that many people tend to forget in the western world. I found it befitting to couple that statement with one of the best bass sounds I have ever churned out, I think. A bit of glitch, and a weak aftertouch of vocoded Kara choir in the background - seemed a match to me. Cheers!

And now that you said a video should be made, then I made one. I’m no video expert, but here we are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs6O3O-zT3o

Whoa. This is an awesome remix. Love it. Honestly, Apoxode’s review thoroughly states why it’s so well done. It’s funny… I write these things, record them, and often forget as I move to the next project… remixes like yours give the words new life! Thank you for this.

Oh shoot! Looks like the video was removed now… I watched a minute of it earlier, but had to deal with some pressing matters & didn’t get to comment. Sorry about that!

The old links doesn’t work anymore, there was a cropping error in that video, but I’ve edited the links in here with the new one.

Gotcha! Very cool. Hypnotic.

Would you horribly mind changing the featured artist name to ‘Kara Square’ for the YT title? Thank you kindly!!
