It’s been a pleasure ‘remixing’ you!

Great use of riffs and industrial elements to create a rock song that explores sonic possibilities with the gusto of a scientist exploring a promising theory in the lab. I like that although some of the influence here is the noise subgenre, the track never irritates, but just sends the listeners into places like a rock club in Berlin or an art space in Stockholm or an abandoned factory in the American midwest

I totally agree Gurdonark—I was going to write a review, but I can’t say it better than that. Great track!

You’re too kind - not sure what kind of monster I’ve stitched together but glad you like. The real breakthrough was playing two sitar samples a tone apart and hearing an interesting dissonance, then adding one two tones apart and hearing bells… So, a bit like a lab. Or a factory.

Lots of cool variations in this. I like the guitar riffs, the long sitar-like droning, the radio beeping… and its all fit together like verse, chorus, bridge: the structure all makes it sound like, well, of course, this is how this song is supposed to be!

That’s funny. I don’t consciously think of verse, chorus, bridge. I think loud bit, different bit, loud, different, quiet bit for shortwave sample… But I suppose that’s the same!

Perfect rock composition, I could listen to this all day. I would’ve liked to hear the drums take the lead when they entered though, as they are kind of back in the mix. I like how they are when the sitar plays, but I think they need a louder, heavier, rockin kick at the beginning! Great job

Yeah, listening back to it I think you’re right about the drums, but I have made the whole mix LOUDER in Audacity. Cheers!

It’s Sunday morning. So far, I have only had one cup of coffee. I don’t think I need anymore after listening to this heavy, crunchy, interesting and well put together collage of texture and sound. Terrific job! (And I must add that it is quite fun that you got Mana Junkie and that he got you!)

I like the collage word. Yes, I just figured out it’s weird that Mana Junkie remixed me too!
