I really love all of the work you’ve done on this track. Your editing, re-arranging and mixing is quite excellent. (I especially appreciate the call-answer of the guitar). I believe you’ve absolutely succeeded in creating a commercially viable hit here. Perfectly executed, hip and smooth.

Thank you very much and I had fun remixing it.

I do love the challenge of a good remixter.

This is really great! I went back to the source material to hear how you worked with it. Fantastic job arranging this track. Bravo!

Thank you.

As you heard the original was very good to begin with. I felt there was a more commercial track hidden in there and using pieces from the original I tried to reveal it.

Hey Quarkstar - I mean you have really grown your talent over the past few years here on ccM. Your harmonies are very cool, the selection of samples is cool and overall I do like that you didn’t go the “commerical” road.

Catchy, cool, and completely engaging. Thanks for describing your process… I love how much thought you put into your mixes. It shows in your high production standards.

Thank you, I actually did two tunes and chose to put up Cracker.

I am learning, mostly from others here.

amazing work!
I just listened to ‘Below’ too…thank you, I’m really honoured that you took the time delve so deeply in to this.

With regards to this track, a massive mention needs to go to John Van Buren, who wrote and sang ‘Crackerbread’ and also plays bass on it (can’t claim credit for that unfortunately!)

great work!
