Like the music in an epic western movie when the good guys are riding across the mountains to save the town folks from the bandits

Thank you, TRF. In this case it’s more riding of the vampires in the Carpathian Mountains. Can you smell the garlic? (to keep them away from my remix)

Love what you’ve done here R!!! Lots of work you’ve put in I guess!
Knowing your quallities, I’m very happy to be remixed by you! And it’s nice to live next door to you too ;)
Thanks for the remix

Thank you, Alex. I had good luck to get you as my remix source. It spent a lots of “time”. But it was more fun than work. Your stems are so easy to work with. Just cut at a any bar and no additional corrections necessary to use the part.

And well, next door is not fully right, but a 1000 km is nothing in the virtual remixing world :)

Was there some sampling of a chimpanzee cry in there? :) The blending of the pells sounded smooth. Oh, your pope analogy cracked me up!

Thank you, Ivan. I love this cry too - during remixing I always waited for it and nearly couldn’t resist to put it in every single bar :)

I like the way the different pieces have been blended together seamlessly. And I think I hear that chimpanzee too. :)

I thought it was a velociraptor : )

Man, they are extinct! Even my kids know that. This is a field recording of a strange huge bird I made with my Zoom H2. It was a very cheap last minute flight to a far away island. I don’t remember it’s name but I wouldn’t recommend it anyway. They definitely need a cleanup there. Lots of car wrecks and rusty film equipment lying around. And ruins of a fun park called Jura Park or something like that…

swanky, sexy, soon to be internationally acclaimed! Euro-Tom-Waits (he is a fav of mine). very, very excellent in concept and production. love how to tie the different pieces together with the same hook. a musical novel. brilliant.

Thank you, Emily! Like the musical novel attribute. Could also be described as “Alex medley”.

Thank you, radiotimes! Glad you like it. Didn’t know to tag it 57 or 114 bpm as it moves…

Holy jars of pickled turnips - this is incredible. Excellent idea, and really well executed. Nice surprise after the first bit where the track gradually moves from the lose swing to a tight/straight 1/16 beat - very nice touch.

Yeah - great tour through Alex-land.

Thank you, colab! Glad you noticed the move from swing to straight. Was some work to fit Alex into the gipsy swing :)

Another excellent remix that I missed. This remix is like the work of a surgeon who do transplants without scarring unless he transplants sounds …
Magnificent.
