Thanks George- that might happen, I think this one’s going “under the knife” again anyways ;-)

NICE! I like that groove - I gotta see if I could write a melody that works with that feel. I’m a bit of a traditionalist but that won’t stop me from trying funky, chunky grooves like this! Tight!

Damnation Dude …… you beat me to the punch with the mid-east thing with “thrushes”….. I really like yer mix; even after I’ve been agonizing over mine for weeks. Great to hear another/yet similar perspective.

Thanks! There was a lot of agonizing over this one too, believe me…

Very cool. Great match with KT’s vocal power here IMO.

Finished your continental check-list yet? Latin beat-check, Afro-beat-check, Middle-Eastern-check…..

Eagerly waiting for Antarctic beats next. ; )

Thanks! Actually, I’m waiting for the Phoenix lander to dig up some Martian tunes to remix ;-)

Great rhythm parts but felt it needed something to break it all up a bit.

I must say though that your use of the percussive elements in all your mixes is always interesting

Needs some breathing room, eh? Ah, well. When remixing, it often seems I solve one problem, only to create another ;-)
Thanks, though- good to know I’m not ho-hum, percussively speaking!

Thanks, AT. I might not be one those “automatic 15+ recommends” people, but I’m more than happy to keep at it, as long as they let me ;-)

You keep at it very very well, your output is amazing and you still have time to review!!!!

well finally I am to it-
a truly fascinating treatment (my 1/2 turkish side obviously snuck in there) I missed a big old open chord on some of the chorus, but the lack thereof made this all the more dissonant and unexpected
BTW I passed……
