Now you’re selling yourself short. You put her wonderful vocals in a great musical context with a very fine production. Excellent stuff.

Ok, so i added a few more ingredients in the soup, but it’s based on the original recipe.

Thanks and Happy Holidays

Some people who listen to ambient music profess a preference for a kind of “purity” in the sound. They want their drones and atmospheres to be free of beats, melodic themes, and easily interconnected ideas.

They profess not to understand why people listen to the dancefloor-derived electronica genres, like downtempo or chill music.

This song is why people listen to downtempo and chill. Music is about atmospheres—about using
sound-as-sound to create environments. Music is about colonizing the moon—terraforming
the ether with sound until it’s safe for humanity to live in what used to be an airless void.

Here you’ve built a crystal city
on the Sea of Storms. It’s a gentle
graceful place in which a sense of peace mingles with heartbreak. It’s a place in which everyone wears a knowing smile, because everyone feels it, and knows it, and nods along to the beat as if
earth-rise is just around the corner.

When one is leaping around the craters, one imagines how one might have planted the flags a bit differently—perhaps the voice could “come up” and have a barest dash more fx, perhaps the drone could have a trifle-ish more delay and pan out to the edges of the headphones like a blanket on the dark side rotation. Yet I’m struck by the graceful, unassuming way this song blends together. This ‘pella is very good—but it tempts one to do too conventional a pop melody. You resist that temptation, and the result is a delightful chill melody.

Thoroughly uncomplicated pop Mr Lang. Your music compliments the pella completely and lifts it to a higher place.

beautiful, instantly likeable track. smooth, sophisticated, urban chill. i’m pretty sure we could sell several copies of this, you know, if we weren’t homeboy & girl recordists doin’ it in our spare time and all.

Hmmm Homeboy & Homegirl Records. If you have the money i’ll fine the time.
I’ve been wanting to change jobs for quiet some time.

Thanks but i’ll wait till you get that fat income tax check. Your gonna need that $17 dollars to finish off your Holiday shopping. I got $ 21 and it’s amazing what you can get at the dollar store.

Mr. Lang,

You proved with this one to be a very versatile musician. Very smooth mix, and a lot of feelings in this quiet piece.

Thanks for the Compliment, but i wish i could call myself a musician, more like a remixer.

I agree with Subliminal…you’re being way to modest. Great addition, great mix.

This is an excellent remix mate! The delayed rhythms and drums go well with vocals. Also, I have listened to some of your other remixes and you have a tremendous ability to pull out the feeling and vibe of the song.
From my side…I am such a perfectionist that I would love to do my vocals again and have you remix them to try different vocal phrasing and smoothing out. I think I sent you an email about that. But, sometimes it is good to just except what you have done (sayin this about me) and see how people interpret what you put out (and you interpreted this piece excellent and gave it more depth with the drums). What people have done with my vocals is exceptional and all of the compliments have been encouraging. You are da bomb JLang. This is like the “JLang and the special sauce” mix (aka “G-love and the special sauce”…love these musicians).

It was truly my pleasure to work with your Beautiful Vocals. Your vocals have inspired some really cool remixes, and each one shines in it’s own light. It’s not often you see so many Mixter working on the same track unless it’s a contest.
I think it’s a testament to the quality of what you bring to ccMixter.
Thank you for your kind words.

Happy Hoildays

I am late to the party here. What a beat DJ Lang. You have the unique sense to add so cool drums on tracks that enhance the vocals like this here. Wonderful drifting track!

Happy holidays to you!

Oh, MAN, this is cool! The beat’s thick, the vocal fits in the song and the mix like a glove, the guitars and synths complement without attracting too much attention. Everything works fantastically.
