Great track Khidir. Elements of the postal service in there I think. The fast paced beat is a great touch, keeping a quick and quirky rhythm whilst the music plays at half speed. Cool

Thanks Scott, I’ve only managed to listen to a couple tracks from The Postal Service and dntel before, and I really, really enjoyed them.

I would echo Scotts comments on the postal service - it did have echoes of that (not a bad thing at all!)

nice remix though

This is a very nice arrangement. As Scott said, I think the fast paced beat is the secret ingredient in this fantastic mix… Kepp them coming!

Thank you, I’m glad you liked the beat, I tried putting some effort into it this time!

Holy smokes! That is cool! Very fun and inventive. The changes and breaks are well placed. The whole band listened to it after practice tonight and we loved it. We’re all thinking it would be well placed on “The Crow” soundtrack ;-). Your handle of the very end was a great unexpected twist.

Great job, thank you!

Thanks, I love your original arrangement, so to keep things in spirit I decided to change things up.

The Crow soundtrack eh? I’m deeply honored!

Glad you guys liked it, cheers!

I agree with WSD, a very original filmic take.
I love that ephemeral distorted guitar you seem to constantly pump out.
Keep on doing it!

Hey now. Very nice surprise. Fantastic blend of beats and time signatures. You have a terrific sense of build-up and how to manage variation throughout a track.

Love it.

Simply wonderful!

As I know since some time waysidedrive, I am surprised about the wonderful vocals of Natalie. Inspiring remix!

I really should pay more attention, because I missed this beauty when it was published. Again a very good and special tune.
