nice work on that piano track. like the build up too.
the piano and vocals seem to be separate from the drums, bass, and synth though. they stand out too much i suppose. that’s the only minor criticism i would give this piece.
fun listen and thanks for the stems.

Wow, you transformed Robs piano into a new masterpiece. No doubt, this must be the Catch of the day!

Nice mix Rocavaco! I agree with septahelix in that “the piano and vocals seem to be separate from the drums, bass, and synth”, but the again is not the easiest melody to work with. I still like it lots because it does try and pay homage to the actual pella - and this it does quite charmingly. To answer your question about which bkg did I use to record Suki, it was simply an 88bpm finger-count loop to a memorized melody I came up with type-deal. I’ll probably do some sort of 88bpm mix with the pella soon to better project the idea. In the meantime - much respect for this B-)
It comes from a children’s rhyme commonly use at least in my natal Puerto Rico to teach children to count. It pertains to the saying: “looking for the cat’s fifth leg”, which basicaly reffers to someone looking for alternate ways to figure something out when there is no other way - it is what it is! Suki added it to the spoken section of the lyrics as she recorded it as a way to say “What’s the point anyway?”.
Here is the rhyme as they say it in Puerto Rico with translation:
Uno, dos, tres, cuatro = One, two, three, four
¿Cuantas patas tiene el gato? = How many legs does the cat have?
Una, dos, tres, cuatro? = One, two, three, or four?
The “pan, chocolate, mantequilla, y cafe” part is from a similar play on words - but that’s a whole nother story [LOL] She just threw it all together.
*Hope that helped solve the enigma :-) *

a beautiful piano work (besides the fact that the piano has a sound and excellent compression, i just love it), I can hear a lot of passion .. a final note on the clarity and the considerable pressure of the drums, my woofers have left home following their way. :D Good work, sound, and good interpretation
Thank you for the nice words. I know the kick drum has a massive punch. But I don’t know if there is a way to create a mix that sounds balanced in small headsets AND for people who own a sub woofer.
The final mix sounds good on my Genelec monitors but has too much bass on the Denon Hifi and barely enough on the iPod. Is there a remix way to suit all of them?

How many legs has the cat?
