wow, the air in your voice is giving me goosebumps! if only my mom had sung this to me during my sleepless nights. your reinvention of this childhood favorite is so incredibly creative, and takes it all to a much deeper, moving level.

i hear a lot of meticulous editing here that works just perfectly. your production skills continue to expand — and blow me away!

listening a second time because i was so impressed.

from concept to execution this is a beautiful, inspiring mix!

Awwwww shucks… thank you, Emily. As you know, I wasn’t confident about this one at all, so it delights me even more that you enjoyed it. πŸ’—

The synth tones you use here are sick, and the lullaby is fresly hypnotizing. I’m dancing too!

Nice one, Kara!
Many layers to this emotional downtempo.
There is a thread of ironic sorrow throughout, it stays submerged as the synths merge with your backin
g vocals.
I kept thinking this is like I don’t know emowave, if that’s a thing.
I really enjoyed your work with this, I wish it was longer.
I keep having to restart it :)
Love it, so perfect for the theme.

Thank you, Apoxode!

Interesting how you said “ironic sorrow”… I hear it. It wasn’t intended, but yeah, it was my energy at the time and I suppose it seeped in. Hmmm…

And I like that… emowave. It’s a thing now! :)

Thank you again for all of your help to make this event happen. I’m really grateful to know you and that you’re part of ccMixter.

This is the first time since the attack that I’ve been able to play an upload. And boy did I choose a good one to try today. Impressive indeed, scores really high on the ‘you did this from that?’ scale.

Aaargh… first and only I guess, next attempt didn’t go so well. Ah well… patience. (I really miss my daily morning habit of listening to new music.)

Shoot. Yeah, I can’t stream either. That bot attack is ridiculous. Honestly, it’s impressive that we were even able to come back online. No small feat. Did you catch this playlist on SoundCloud? At least it can catch you up on the Secret Mixter tunes.

Did ya’ see how we can stream again? All thanks to Sjef!
permalink   Speck Fri, Sep 23, 2022 @ 2:50 PM
Yes, indeed. I even uploaded a mix this morning. All hail Sjef!

Good job delivering the dreamy vibrations, Kara

The synth lines added good contrast.

Clever mix, mix, mix your song life is but a dream approach. Kara’s kitchen, yes?
