It really is. I love your comment about how it is a wonderful way for us to get to know each other better. Not only through exploring the work of our mixter, but also, we all seem to be paying more attention to each other at secret mixter time. I really think it brings out the best in us. I just love it!

Yes, we are getting to know each other better, and the mixes are getting better. Mixters are stepping up!

btw-Vidian is offering secret mixter drinks over on his review page ;)

Great track, lovely Latino feel to the guitar, and melodic vox. L

Thanks! Very much liked your mix too…wink wink!

and yes, Carlos was definitely on my mind during this mix. Not to compare at all…he is in a world all his own.

Ok so I sound even more tightly wound than I am but I can live with that :-).

And yes… I do want to dance, a lot in fact so thanks for mashing me up. My next round of remixes will be danceable so you’ve kick-started my imagination.

Nice work…you put the “fun”in my “funky”…. Thanks :-)

Mr. Stone, do advise the next time you will be in the vicinity of the Eastern U.S. We’ll settle this outside ;-).

Some polished guitar work in here.

I think you had a hard task with the limited samples essesq has but you took the right route and built a new track.

I know where to come for my Santana licks in the future. :-)

What a great remix! I couldn’t agree with you more: getting deeply into someone’s sample pool is quite a surreal experience in how one can feel one gets to know someone even without ever exchanging a word in the traditional sense.

Love the wicked guitar work, too!!

Thanks spinmeister! And yes, I find the a cappellas particularly personal, and when I’m listening intently for a hook, a line or meaning I really connect with the part when I find it.

Rock On!
