Her, and holy crap this is sooooo good. Thank you so much! I love how perfectly this track works and it’s fitting that the music from the little game OST happens to fit a vocal from a song with the same name. :) I’m trying to pick this apart to figure out which elements you used from which track.

I’m so glad you like it!!! You inspired me to write the song… (I named it after your stems) :D

Some pieces will be difficult to discern as stems, because I cut and shifted and edited and effected things to pretty crazy extremes in spots!! The loops and bass are obvious though LOL

Thank you for such awesome stems!!!

Oh, I thought this was a mashup with an existing song! The fact it’s a brand new song made from my stems makes it even better. That is so awesome. :)

Very nice. Great energy and motion. Quite an impressive suite of samples from fluffy, well implemented.

Thank you! I’d never delved into Fluffy’s expansive sample library — I highly encourage it. :)

Oh yes. It builds up great.
Love the twist of the tempo.

Great sample selection, great work on them and perfect Song you made out of it.

Thank you for listening and for your encouragement. Listening again I think the lead vox is a bit too loud in parts. May need to remix a bit and upload a new version. I’d love your input! Namaste.

Now that’s kicking off the event with style. I love it, and also noticed that fluffy’s link to the game is broken, it needs a little questions mark like this:
http://ludumdare.com/compo/...

Can it still be downloaded and played? My boys are getting into unity game development and would love this.

Unfortunately no, the game is not available online anywhere. It was web-based and the developer hasn’t bothered to keep it working.

Also I don’t know why the ?s disappeared from the URLs on my song posts since they were there when I posted it! Weird. But regardless the game isn’t accessible anymore anyway.

Man, bummer to hear that. At least the music lives on!

I hadn’t looked at the game yet LOL…Thanks for sharing the link. We’ll need to ask Fluffy about it. Very cool your boys are diving into unity game dev. Thanks for listening!

love the way the piano drives the tempo. Awesome secret mixter!

It took so many attempts to get that piano part right at the end (embarrassingly, I’ve never learned how to work with midi so I record live) — and my left arm really hurt after all of those banging eighth notes in the bass clef. thanks for appreciating my efforts LOL

I love the beats, clean with swing, and then the breaks are tasty treats…many layers here, and the melody ties it all together. May we all carry on through the chaotic changes like the way this song carries through …with love!

There’s a hint of neo-soul to this, I hope I’ve heard that right. :) I love all the vocals, and the interplay with the stems.

And of course, the lyrics are spot on and super-topical, without being preachy in the least. Just macro-life lessons for the world.

You’ve done so much really terrific Secret Mixter work, you could probably make an album out of just that. :)

An intense performance Madam ;)

Just incredible! So many wonderful things going on. The double tie at the end reminds me of Jim Steinem. Brilliant writing.

Great mix—the lyrics and vocals hold my attention, and the smoothness with which the elements of the song fit together make for a great sound.
