Very tranquil. Can almost hear the waves lapping at the shore :-).

Cool! I feel better now that I didn’t sample actual waves onto the mix :).

Very smart and respectful choice to create this track, because you’ve really highlighted the musical side of J.Lang when the easy approach would have been to do a hip-hop track.

Very nice work.

Thanks. I wish I could do hip-hop, but I’m afraid I would not do it well—so I did what little I could.

Thanks! I love for drones to achieve an inner resonant depth with a listener.

I’ve been gone most of the day, running around like crazy. After a very stressful day, it is truly a pleasure to come home, relax and listen to this wonderful track you put together.
Very relaxing, and COOL.

Your work deserves a lot better remix than I was able to do—but I’m glad that you liked this modest effort. It is always fun to use your samples—and I’m glad these were BY so that I could do a BY remix. One kind mixter has already made a video!

Great job Gurdonark, somehow your sense of imagination always translates beautifully to the soundscape you’re building, and this one is refreshingly well-made.

thanks, Khidir—sometimes imagination and soundscapes are my only cards, but I try to play my hand as best I can :).

Thanks, Victor. I could mix J. Lang over and over, because there’s so much to work with in his uploads.

Gurdonark,
You just find a way to make the mellow dayscape slow and lusty. It reminds me of the old faded baby blue steam-type boats that lingered around the lakes in the Ozark mountains serving as concession stand and dock for paddle pushers. I loved wandering around the decks, up and down the stairs as if being on those boats put me in another time, another place, calm and far away from even imagination.

I love the Ozarks! I went to college there. What I loved about them was looking across vistas, into sightscapes that seemed pregnant with silence—an ambient music.
I wish I had seen those steam-type boats!

Gurdonark, this mix has caught me from the beginning. I love your ability to abstraction on music. Congrats.

what a winning combination indeed! This remix inhabits that mysterious area between a feeling and a story. Intriguing and delightful!

i think maybe the coolest thing for me is how you use the drones as others would use beats, as the underlying layer of the arrangement, the bed, and you use the beats as others would use other incidental instruments or samples. very nice job robert. you really highlight j’s source very nicely.
