I had a great time remixing Scomber; he truly is a terrific songwriter.

While I was prepared to go deep into the archive (Scomber has 582 pages of content that he has shared at ccMixter!), I landed on Black to the Night early in my research of his catalog. The existential longing of the lyric resonated.

The song itself was a journey; starting out as a tribal EDM track. This is where it ended up.

Thanks Scomber for being such a swell ccMixter citizen!

Source material includes recording of the Kepler Star from NASA, as well as crickets and a whale from freesound.

I’ll upload vocals and bass stems uploaded separately.

Editorial pick

Applying pop music production sensibilities, SackJo22 innovatively integrates Scomber’s voice, crickets, a whale, a choir and Light Curve Waves to Sound into a soulful ballad. Well positioning Scomber’s voice within a spatial soundscape delivers a dark yet satisfying mellow Paisley Park Records feel.
