The other week, I shared a tune from Freemasons featuring the amazing vocals of Siedah Garrett, released in the late 2000s and it was an uplifting house track that helped me get through a rough patch in my life.
Of course, dance music videos back then featured a pretty lady or two which also helped promote the tune but that's besides the point lol.
I've been working on a drum & bass remix of this tune as a way to creatively vent a lot of "ish" that's going on in 3D world right now but if you haven't heard the original or would like to see that music video, well, here's a recap:
You will probably notice that the key of the remix I've done is different, along with the tempo. The pitch of the acapella I found of Siedah's vocals is what I've used in the remix.
This provided another interesting challenge to then re-arrange the chord sequence I've done to one that's slightly lower and now, after listening to my remix a lot during production, hearing the higher pitch in the original sounds odd haha!
But in any case, the only thing that isn't mine in the remix is the vocal acapella, I wanted to keep the vibe as true to the original but I'll be the first to say that the original is unbeatable :)
Here's what I've got so far, it needs some final polishing and a bit of mastering magic to finish it off :)
Oh, and a video of professional dancers to do a faster variant of Daft Punk's Around the World video... THEN we'll be good to go for the full release on YouTube lol!
