The main reason I wanted to produce my own original music was so I could use it to make truly original remixes.
It’s all very well to use the digital equivalent of a crowbar and sledgehammer to mash two existing tracks together, to create something larger and more unlikely than the sum of its component parts, but I wanted to be able to take an existing piece of music and be responsible for ALL the additional bells and whistles.
I almost achieved that when I successfully submitted my reworked version of Number‘s Face Down In Ecstacy, but even then I used something I’d previously created, not material I’d specially composed for mixing with their song.
Now, having sufficiently mastered my latest discipline, I reckon I have successfully produced a fairly credible debut; an extended, elaborate and somewhat noisier reworking of Lindstrom‘s The Contemporary Fix
So, here is my first genuine, bespoke remix, with its very own lovingly created video.
