Comparing with your previous experiment this one is better I think. Using that short vocal to create all (all?) the “instruments” is a great work
And I also like dark techno! :)

Yes, apart for the kick drum, everything comes from the 4 words “set my soul aflame”, but there’s quite a lot of effects.

In fact each letter of those words brings very different sounds, so I could have done something more varied. Maybe next time.

I’m stunned. That’s quite a groovy variety of sound coming from such a short sample.

this is strangely captivating - a very successful experiment! I’m sure this will find takers for further remixing.

A remix would be a most unexpected but very pleasant surprise!

I wonder where other ccmixters would take this…

Inspiring! I think I might play around with a similar idea, and see what happens :-)

I’d love to hear your take on the “voice sample” challenge! :)

Interesting and inventive. I particularly like the low sounds, amazing overtones.

Like a lot of good ideas simple but very effective.

I think the tonality of the piece is what drives it. Anything different may not have worked but you have pitched it where it forces the listener to listen!!

After a listen through a lot of po/hiphop/funk/ethno tracks this is amazing towards idea and sound. Always good to see that tracks like this get a lot of attention.

Well I must say I’m very impressed by the feedback!
