Thanks, Ic3m4n, appreciated! Especially given the genre/style of your remixes and recs (just listened to Sunrise (Purple Sky), btw - which I very much like)!

[Edit] Btw, that piano part is from Durdan’s excellent instrumental pack listed in the from list - highly recommended.

Really good backing track. The vox sitting on the mix as opposed to in it can sometimes be a problem but here it works very well.

Nice textures throughout that keep the interest going.

I’m glad you like it. The timbre of her voice is relatively un-aggressive - so I tried to make sure that it had room, and added some saturation to make it stand out.

Hey, great track. Is one of the best remixes of this song, I like the way you used all the samples integrating them in one song. Very good, and a very clever use of the resources.

I liked a lot.

Thanks! Btw, I originally came across your instrumentals via the sample browser - now listened to your rough (?) mix - nice progression and build. I like your mixes - it’s illuminating to be able to hear the elements in isolation - appreciated.

Very impressive- it’s flashy without being flashy, if that makes any sense. Nice how you manage to showcase all the elements while still keeping everything balanced.

Thanks - that is a compliment given the music-scapes I’ve heard from you :)

Very well composed. I didn’t just merely listen to it, because it was composed so well that it had the ability to capture me and take me away. That, among many other fine details, makes this piece a success.

Good to hear! - I was going for a cinematic-ish progression to accompany the spoken word.

Always a treat, yours. I love it. I have a soft spot for Jaspertine’s Marmolada guitar too, I am glad it got used again.

Thanks - yes, Jaspertine’s Marmolada guitar part is a real gem.

Very impressive - professional without being slick.

Your quite the master at taking many samples and creating these wonderful atmospheres. congrats on the pick—very nice

Glad that you hear that - I’ve been thinking about the samples more as “players” these days - with their own personalities - I think it makes for a rich listen.

It continues to amaze me how mixters can take spoken word pieces and make memorable musical backings to accompany them. This is an exceptional example of what I am talking about. Great vocal to begin with but I love the instrumental, especially the guitar and the treatment on it. Great job.
