the secret cavalry rides! the richness of this mix is only surpassed by the awesomeness of your willingness to step up on such short notice and produce such a fine piece of work. thanks again!

hey dude this has great emotional depth

I sense the mixing was tough because of the amount of low mid range tones, you either had to drop out some instrumentation or smother the vocal, am I right?

Theres a lot of close mic technique on the take so once it was balanced i brick walled it ,

Thanks for your comment.

This is lovely and a perfect demonstration of why I was really glad that you weren’t in the secret mixter pool, because if I had to remix you in two weeks I think I’d faint.

You are kind, generous, and as always, obscenely talented. Beautiful piece of work.

Well I was in the very shallow end of the secret mixer pool.

Sort of a lifeguard eh ?

This is quite lovely. The string notes actually make the piano sound better - the interplay of the two is beautiful.

Very minor point - did you have to manipulate the pitch of the vocals a lot? Sound like a few artefacts here and there - nothing really disturbing though (unless it’s just in my head in which case I’m sort of worried).

Beautiful track.

If you look back at some of my stuff its a pattern to try and find counterpoint melodies to the basic chords. That and i am lazy so can’t be bothered to change the loop.

There’s some phazing or room ambience in the original vocal and i sped it up by 20% which brought that out even more . I fed it thru Antares then. Some notes get pulled harder than others thru that route. If had more time i would have by passed the culprits.

So your ears are fine ;-)

Some time you just listen and some times it’s just blows you away with no words what so ever just pictures!

Loveshadow comes off the bench and scores the winning goal in extra time!

This remix is State Shirt all dressed up in a tuxedo! I bet the chicks will dig that! :-)

Well I bet you’re the sort of person who helps old ladies cross the road even if they cannot sing!

So no surprise to see you step up and help out at a time of need and produce not just a filler but a really nice piece of work.

fourstones at Puako, Jan 2009

After a 26 hour travel day (from Melbourne), instead of going straight to the rental, we stopped at a Costco (major super-duper-mart) and I picked up three packets of white T-shirts. When we got to the place our landlady for the month greeted us as we got out of the car with “Oh my, look at you two, all black!” (Indeed, both Cin and I were black, head to toe.)

I was beyond tired but I managed to ask her “Does the word ‘Loveshadow’ mean anything?”

well if you went back and asked her now she would say..

`oh yea i know.. that guy with a rare picture of Fourstones on one of his comments …’

I’me privileged indeed.

just to bring in people other the that 3 who are “in” on this…

Loveshadow agreed to remix StateShirt on the condition that I post a picture of myself wearing any color other than black.

I probably shouldn’t admit this but there are few colors I would not wear for that combination of remixer-singer - as you can hear here.

Lookin’ good Fourstones!

A Real Trooper, and a pretty good remixer/producer.

Another one for the LS section on my ipod. My friends and family know who Loveshadow is.

Simply amazing work.

We all had 2 weeks to mix something for Secret Mixter. LS, 2 days.

He’s in a different class, he’s a Double-Secret Mixter. ; )
