My lucky Secret Mixter draw this round was… Stefan Kartenberg!

The song I landed on hadn’t been remixed before and it’s an instrumental GEM with a mega zip of stems! Everything in this mix besides vocals & some sound FX (tech glitch, birds, crickets) is from Stefan’s beautiful, sparkly song.

Thank you for the inspiration, Stefan. And thank you for the musical fun, ccMixter! I hope you all dig!

Here are the vocal stems in case you’re interested.

Are you here?
Your eyes are starring down
Your mind is somewhere else
Do you care?

Are you here?
Can you see that life
Is happening around you?
Do you care?

When is the last time
You felt alive
You watched the sun
Set or rise?

Are you here?
We’re in proximity
But your screen is in between
Do you care?

Are you here?
You’re nodding in agreement
But you didn’t hear me
Do you care?

When is the last time
You looked above
Searched the night sky
For shooting stars?
Shooting stars
Shooting stars

Come with me
We’ll discover life
Happening around us
Without our screens

Look in my eyes
You and I are here
In our living flesh
We are alive

When is the last time
You felt awake
You felt hope
You felt engaged?

Take my hand
You and I will talk
Without any distractions
And understand

I am here
You and I are human
With everything in common
Do you care?

Do you care?
Do we care?
Will you care?
Will we care?
Are you here?
Are we here?

The classic simplicity of
Kara’s lyric and melody weave around a gorgeous B/T by Stefan in a song that will be remembered in a deep part of the soul for all lucky enough to hear it. I still say Kara is one of the best ‘undiscovered’ singer-songwriters of our age. Combining her with Mr. Kartenberg… . goosebumps!
