I really, really love this. It started out as one thing, and ended up “communally enhanced”…..

edit- I forgot to say, I think the vocals are a bit pointy feeling in terms of mix during the beginning….not too loud, just equalization-juxtaposed. THey just stand out far above the rest of the music.

hey bill, thanks for the honest feedback about the vocal track. it was kind of bugging me too and your grammy winning ears just validated it for me, so i went back and tweeked it. thanks for the comments, and more importantly, thanks for the awesome drums!

Really imaginative blend of samples.
A really good listen. All it needs is that faux-LP-spinning sound to transport me to a 70s reggae festival.

i love this BT, Bill & Bob nail a reggae sound much punchier & more free sounding than most of that genre. and i gotta throw my pell points to Reb, she’s great here.

That’s a perfect acapella from Rebecca… may be even better suited than the original vocal. Like all the variations, and your editing choices. I was hoping the remix fight might see some creative splicing, rather than just lining up Bill and I directly. :)

One note, on the guitar tone: you’ve thinned it out and put some filters on it… which if I’m guessing are designed to craft a bit of an Andy Summers tone out of it.

I’m not sure it works. It may be a bit too thinned out, as the sonic range you’ve removed isn’t very present anywhere else in the song. It sounds as a result like the song has a bit of a hole in it between 600 hz and 1.2 khz.

Cool…reminds me of going to a random city and luckily catching a live reggaeish band

Terrific curating of source material — It’s exciting to hear this familiar vocal in this unexpected setting. Thanks!
