Awesome remix! It’s very cool how you went down a more Japanese musical path as a reference to the original BWT title. Thanks for the “How I Did It” production notes. I like how you shifted most of the original samples from 3/4 to 4/4. Can those Japanese robot mermaids go on tour with us? :-)

Thank you so much for your kind words of approval - although I took so many liberties with your most excellent and inspiring original!

Cool. The robot mermaids are a treat. Nicely done.

brilliant! i’m feeling japanese, i really think so :) i enjoyed reading your notes on how you did this. i imagine this was a pretty big editing job! i love the overall “ethereal glue” holding the mix together. each section builds with interest, dynamic and instrumentation so that i’m completely enthralled. really great work on this spin! you just keep getting better (like a fine wine!)

hehe - I really think so, too! And yes, the 3/4 into 4/4 editing took a good while - also since I had to match the 2 original guitar tracks. Thank you for your kind words! … making music is hopefully the medicine to avoid turning into grumpy old white vinegar! :-)

great!!! Is it anyhow possible to upload stems for this one? I would very much like to do a take on this one :)

thanks! - And I just uploaded the parts I can legitimately share (i.e. the drum and the bass parts make use of samples/soundsets from commercial libraries, where the license doesn’t allow me to upload individual parts - I uploaded the midi parts for the bass, but most of the action in the bass parts is in the softsynth programming, so not present in midi).
