Dammit, LS - you do this to me everytime! You blindside me with what my boy, Mr Jam, calls ‘Tha Goodness! I’ve been kinda bummed ‘cuz finding time to do music is a task for me! I really gotta squeeze myself into some of the tightest places. I don’t go to bed on the regular ‘til 1:30 to 2am in the morning! But you, to paraphrase Doghouse Riley, you’re running a video company, have a family, are probably doing volunteer work on the side and somehow, literally, CHURN out one hot piece of music after a another! Then, in your spare(?) time, you share bits of poetry and spoken word that you’ve enjoyed on ccMixter and share it with the rest of us. How do you do it, man? What gods/goddesses do you worship? Please enlighten me, Sir! I need to know! You hold secrets that could propel us 1000’s of years into the future!

*sob*…how do you do it? I wanna be DOPE like you!!!!

P.S. ‘Something for the weekend’ does translate internationally.

Well it may translate internationally but it may not across the gender barrier (no pun intended, originally ;-)). However, thanks to the magic of the internet we ladies can translate your euphemisms with the click of a mouse. Now, I’ve got to go see a man about a dog. (if that translates internationally then this is a very small world indeed :-)…I learned that one many years ago from a dear friend of mine who I sadly don’t see anymore…)

`Something for the weekend’ travels internationally”

Trust me it travels more than internationally…:D

P.S hey LS what’s that vocoder thing you are using?

Magenta.
Using its midi input. Placing another track into the side chain and muting the original out of the mix.

To quote RavenTM, I lost oversight of all your uploaded remixes that I don_t get because your output is stunning.

Of course it is not easy to drop a record deal or release, but you and SB3 have all the potential to do a lush, contemporary Soul/Funk/RnB album that is worth to be placed in record shops all over the world.

So hopefully you will do it and fingers X!:-)

I rec’d this a while back after only getting through about 2 mins of it (phone, kid or some other interruption). I’ve read all the other comments about trying to keep up with the output in terms of comments etc and I’m in the same boat. It just gets boring saying “great” over and over again, and for me the words don’t always come to express what makes one thing stand out as special.

From remix 1, I said the FHC/LS combo had it all going on, and I still say it. This mix stands apart from the others in my mind because of the timbre of the sounds used. Having the vocoded vox running simultaneously with the more natural ones is masterful and highly unusual, it creates that slightly techno feel without losing the human. A little like a Dalek it’s a robot with something organic inside it. or vice-versa.

I’ve been praising simplicity a lot lately, but this mix is a good example of how complexity, when the elements are not wasted, can be a charm. This is one of those songs that you can probably listen to a hundred million times and always hear a new sound or a new musical relationship within it.

When you posted your 10th remix back in the old country I said you were writing the book on remixing, now, it’s the *#&^-ing Encyclopedia Britannica. When it’s done please let me know, I want an autographed first edition. Or better still, please let it not be done….

This track totally reminds me of my stint in Cali last year. I spent a lot of the time clubbing in Santa Barbara (only 16 days there, had a lot to do :o) and this track sums up the vibe that seemed to be happening up and down state street. Its smooth yet has that party vibe that demands shades in doors and the ladies by the dozen on the dance floor. Summer is the key word… on the beach, in the club, it don’t matter. I like this a lot…

Listen, it ain’t none a my bidness or nothin but why ain’t you and Cam and Frank already made and put out a damn CD and got some major label to distribute it? Are they all nitwits (yea, I know that’s a possiblity) or is it you fellers just aint got around to it yet? Cause quite frankly ya’ll should already be installin fur lined sinks in yor kitchen or somethin and drivin round with yor 70 inch rims with bitches all up in yor bar-b-q grills (and no that wadn’t no plug for my wonderful magnum opus which I cain’t help it bein so rootsy an all) but I digress (that’s a new word I just learned, pardon me while I use it). I mean while I can see the (very, very) minor lyric tweaks that might need to be made or this production element over that, Geeze Louise, ya’ll are as good as it gets!! Does the mafia or somethin run yor music bidness over there in Blighty?? Cause ifn it’s just greedy reptilian lawyers like it is over here in the bad (formerly good) ol USofA then hire one a them assholes and let’s just be done with it, OK? I’m tired a frettin over it.
