I love it when people abuse me more!

Excellent mutation of the material. Sounds like a decayed transmission from a moonbase, if that makes any sense.

Loving this!

Thank you, I’m very happy you loved my work! I’m looking forward to sample or imitate your fatboy-slim-gone-to-the-dark-side creations in my next projects.

I’ll admit right now: I wasn’t sure if I even liked this piece - then, about half way through - I realized what I was listening to in terms of emotion and craft and I was blown away. This is a tremendous achievement. Thanks so much for even trying this, let alone pulling it off so freakin well.

Thank you. Your comment really makes me feel I did achieve something, for many of my all time favorite songs are like that: it took a while to catch the idea and find the soul of the track. A song always becomes a bit more personal when it takes some time to get it. Sometimes it even takes a remix or cover to make you fall in love with the original.

Very few glitch/experimental tracks actually hold a rhythm like this one does. At first it felt like the few grounds of coffee left in the bottom of the cup. Then, once suddenly swallowed, end up being a rich explosion of flavor for the ears. Very nice.

Strange but cool.
At first I was a bit surprised, I’m used to traditional rhythmic and construction and here everything seems to be drop hazardous but it finally gives a peace and nice remix.
Well done.

I would probably fit somewhat away from the traditional rhythmic scheme here myself and so I love the feel here. I too like to use the modulations and distortions to split material into cubes of sound and smush them into something. Very nice. Did I say tasty?

i could only hope to be abused in such an intricately specific way!

I’ve had many versions of your “Blessed are the Greedy” under work since 2007. I just haven’t figured out yet how to wrap up the three very different versions into a one solid song. It’s (or they’re) coming out some day, but I do tend to spend months or years with some tracks, and “Blessed” seems to be one of those.

(I am quite reluctant to use any NC-licensed samples or acappellas, but luckily this one was released under attribution only license.)

i think you did an outstanding job on this. from the broken down transmission intro to the various changes, you paint a compelling audio visual.

Thank you! I know that my stuff is moody and gloomy, but it’s always nice to notice that other people think that is a good thing, too.

It was very nice to work with your vocals, and overlaying the repeated verse gave nice harmonics. I first thought to align the phrases to have weights on same beats. But then, when I overlapped the verses and listened to the rough version, I instantly decided to leave them as they are in the final mix, too.

I especially love your voice when you sing quite low, it has the same thing I love in Fiona Apple’s voice, too.

Underlying tension created by rhythm and space illuminated by Kaer’s powerfully emotive voice. Very fine and effective indeed!

Always a treat to hear from you. And this mix is no exception.
