Haha - I love this downtempo version - the half-speed rhythm is a perfect fit, because it gives all the sounds a chance to get the centre stage.
Nice one - thanks for being part of this project.

Yeah, I tried to keep it clean. I really liked your bass for instance (always do) but was hard to get it in there with the bass that came with septahelix’s drums, hence the breaks/changes. Thanks for starting this.

great transitions in here. really like what you did with the synth, believe it’s colab’s. i like how we each broke it down differently.

oh, how to add those links in the properties?

There’s a ‘link’ button above the description text box. Just highlight the text to link and paste the address in the box that comes up.

Thanks for your mixing it up with us. My samples don’t get mixed much. Always thought it must be because they’re unmixable, but you seemed to make easy work/play of them. I think maybe you and I share the ‘I can make something from anything’ ethos.

i’ve found that the best way to get sampled is to throw in stems with remixes. more people seem to check the remix listings than the sample listings.
yeah, i definitely think like that.

Abolutely that’s right! Only reason I’m on the stats board!

Quote: septahelix…throw in stems with remixes…Agreed. For some time now I’ve made it a habit to include stems/samples of any original material with the remixes I upload (if there is any).

i also think a lot more people are looking for vocals than anything else.

yeah, i’ve tried to do that too, even though i just love mashing up tons of unused samples.

I just listened to Three Fanged Shark, and its interesting how many similarities there are to Colab’s approach, as well as some clear differences. Yours has moments of “shock value” with the distempo use of the loud guitar blares.

Its like looking at the same thing through convex eyes after looking through stereoscopic ones. :)

so inspired by this project between you, septahelix and colab — this mixversation is taking it to a new level.

Be Mined Thrice is an incredible experience in headphones. first listened in speakers and felt it calling me in deeper. you are painting with sound. your changes are mind-bending and expansive.

Thanks snowflake. I always mix in headphones. I’ve read monitors are better but I don’t have a dead quiet room, and I do have neighbors, so headphones it is. Plus I just like that level of intimacy with sound.

so you mix only in headphones? that is quite amazing — you must really know how the sound translates to other systems. impressive!
