Shades of Motown or an Isaac Hayes film score, J
Crowd noises be occupying the mixes!

I thought we were going to get Woodstock era protest music before the music set in, and then we get Pimpmobile era music. :)
Tasty stuff, esp. the wah rhythms, the arp strings, the insertion of the crowds as a musical element, the electric piano, and the lazy bass.
The guitar swells near the end, are really tasty… like whale song. :)
Thanks AB! Yeah, the protests these days are a lot more street than the “hippy-love-organic-flowerchild” days of old. Though there is a bit of that still in there, which in my opinion is a good thing.
We can thank timberman for all the tasty spice—I didn’t play anything on this track,except for a little white chocolate rap in two sections, I stayed out of the way for these two talented artists to lay it down.
Thanks for listening!

The combination of Panu’s voice singing “When will it end” with the protesting crowds… yeah, I couldn’t hold back the tears either. Emotive, inspiring remix.

When I did this mix I had “What’s going on” in mind and you’ve kept that spirit but transformed it thematically and musically to 2011. Very nice, sir.

Very polished. people need to stay awake on this topic :)
I agree, and music is a great medium to awaken people without shaking them too abruptly. We are living through a historic time
When we look back at history, our tendency is to think that everyone experienced the crisis of their time, like the 60’s protests for instance. But in reality, most just keep doing what they did everyday, experiencing the time they were in through the news, or by what someone told them about it.
Music can capture those historic moments and keep them alive forever.
This is why creative commons music and ccMixter is so important, it allows us to share music written about the time we are in now, worldwide. Thanks for listening!

very beautiful mix — but very heartbreaking too.
“people on the left and right, pray to your God tonight, to forgive this sin, when will it end.”
the power of music to crack the exterior and expose the soul is demonstrated in this beautiful mix highlighting the poetry of Panu and production of timberman.

Words and Sounds together. This really does have beauty. You understand that funk is space. Great bass part, and the tremelo guitar riff is real cool. The siren like guitar (did someone say whale? Or was it wail?) at the end was nice too. I’d recommend if I could.

Beautifull mix my friend. I can hear that the occupy movement have had is influence to booth your and em’s creative thoughts.
It’s a song that grows on me. The first time I heard it I didn’t care for it so much. Now at the end of the fourth time I’m really starting to love it. Alltough listening it too much isn’t perticulairy good for ones mood ;)
