Kill The Young has now added one of my remixes onto their MySpace page. You can hear two new tracks of theirs including the original and my remix at:
Today has been a good day, first of all it’s vernal equinox and summer is coming closer and closer every day. Main reason for being happy however is that I’ve got green light from both, Monotonik and Kill The Young because of my work for them.
My ep or mini-lp for the free netlabel Monotonik ended up including total of five new tracks instead of the three that I wrote about in my previous post. This ep will come out later in the spring, stay tuned to this blog and you’ll hear them when it’s due. In the words of Simon Carless, the head of Monotonik:
OK, so I love it, def. want to release it. It might be a month or two… OK? 🙂 It’s really strong work!
I also got first opinions from Kill The Young. For them I have done two remixes, one uptempo dancefloor filler and one easy downtempo pop tune. This is what their manager told me:
The band are REALLY loving your remixes 🙂
Oh happy days!
Today I’ve been working on the remix for an UK based indie band called Kill The Young. This project will take most of my attention this week but I’ve already got some nice test results. My attempt is to create at least one remix for the dancefloors, anything that comes aside is just bonus.
Check their My Space for more information about the band.
This week has been really effective production wise I must admit even myself. Besides having written tracks for the upcoming ep on Monotonik, I’ve been able to come up with these dancefloor tracks as well.
With Trash The Disco I took the idea of electroclash and nu-rave that I had in mind with Ask Why, even further. As a result it turned out to be pretty harsh track but I feel that I succeeded better at how I wanted it to be. Decide for yourself but be warned, this sort of stuff isn’t everyones cup of tea 🙂
Last night I started with another track. I was inspired by some of those Tiga tracks my friend posted in his Facebook profile.
At the same time I had been wanting to experiment with a bit of electro, nu-rave and house and what happened is that I finished with a stompy dancefloor filler using a bit more harsh sounds than I usually use. This version is not actually going to be the final as there are still some bits to polish, but it is the first public version.
This track uses samples from the Texas Instruments Speak & Spell toy.
