production tips? This sounds like Daniel Lanois producing Laurie Anderson! You should be giving us tips!

Great vocal additions and the guitar effects.

You’re way too sweet Admiral. I’m still not happy with the final mix, but got to the point where I just could not futz with it any more. Cheers and here’s to more secret mixter fun!

I’m so glad you’re blown away! That’s so much more than I could hope for. I am always relieved when my mixter assignment isn’t horrified by my remix. You have such a trove of material, that it was actually a challenge to make creative decisions. Thanks for sharing so much cool source. And it was really fun to sing along with you too!

You’ve created an impelling force of sound with this one. Not the kind of force that requires fortitude to withstand but rather the kind that compels one to join, as you did with your vocals. (Speaking of which, will you be uploading that stem?) It’s a very good mix.

Thanks Speck. I did have a lot of intention with this song and it seems like that may have come across, at least a bit. Sure, I’ll upload the vocal stems. Probably tomorrow.

That was a pleasant listen.

I liked the idea of starting with dry vox, with the heart beat. The drums are very original at my ears. And I liked a lot the bass, and ofcourse the vocals are wonderful!

Great Work Sackjo22

The “vocals” you added on top of the track were a nice touch to something that was hypnotically groovy to begin with! Definitely going into my playlist… I really like how you mixed in the voice from Midnight Sun too…

Thanks Em. From a technical perspective, this track kicked me in the butt — so many vocals, many of which occupying the same space in the mix… I really wish I had a producer.

Such a laid back groove, especially the first half. I love the mix of vocals. That industrial synth really darkens the mood which I personally like.

Very successful musical experiment Susan. I love spiritual atmosphere, vocals (your is so amazing and expressive). Good idea also to place AA breaking parts. I like your work very much.
