I’m a big fan of your stuff. This one is extra fantastic. Like a journey. In express speed. Around the world. Equator latitiude.

Thanks very much. With all the fantastic uploads offered one is bound to mix up something extra fantastic once in a while.

I totally agree. Another world-music-infused-transcendental-trip-remix! Which is great in my book! And your remixes, all of them, are just PRIME for movie soundtracks. I’m absolutely serious. The actual “mix” of the song is splendid. Very well done. Another great remix my friend!

I rather like this.

Will you take offense if I call it easy listening (not to be confused with muzak)?

I hope not, because to me it really has that quality that allows me to enjoy it without it taking up too much of my active headspace.

Could you share some details on how you work (what software, hardware, maybe something on the process)?

I’m very interested to find out.

Not at all, I know just what you mean. Are you familiar with somafm? It’s the internet radio station I listen to when I’m doing other stuff and want some music on that’s not going to take my attention too far away from what I’m doing. Maybe I’m being influenced by that?

Quote: colabCould you share some details on how you work (what software, hardware, maybe something on the process?Well, let’s see. I do all the mixing in AcidPro, pre-mix chopping, sound quality improvements, and effects in Soundforge. Final mastering also in Soundforge. Usually if I’ve played something in the mix in comes from a Yamaha keyboard (PSR-530). Most of my original beats I do in Reason with Redrum, also synths might come from there. Basic information, subject to whims. The process part is harder to pin down, at least right now, dinner’s ready. Thanks for listening, it is appreciated.

Ah, thanks for sharing your remix process. BTW I didn’t think this was Easy-listening but more like “Modern World Music” or something.

Speck I really like this, has alot of elements in there that remind me of so much music I’ve listened to over the years. I love the hazy,sexy,pleading opium smoking vibe of it, some parts remind me of this mortal coil-=—lovey work Speck—thanks so much for making me a part of it

I am dazzled by the control and precision you bring to your beautiful, dark and chaotic mixes. Am I sounding a bit up myself? Oh well, you know what I mean, Speck. It’s bloody marvellous. xx

Aaah another person who is listening to somafm. I have already mentioned this station here especially to our collegue colab.

And it_s true, this music (yours and some on somafm) that take your attention but can give you also calmnes at the same time.

This song I like very much. You’ve created your own sound world. I would recognize your music without a name. That is probably a good sign. warmly J├╝rgen
