I’ve uploaded another old remix I put together, this time from April 2003. I was using the PHatmatic pro on basically every track I was making at that time and was attacking quite a few tracks I loved with it. This is another track from that period. The arrangement is actually typically dance and is a bit out of character for me, it being pretty conventional and to my ears sounds a bit more coherent than you might normally expect to hear from a track of mine. It’s a fairly straightforward production, but one that works well, especially at keeping it’s energy up.
I first heard the original of this track on Jon Lisle’s brilliant ‘autobiography’ mix. I met Jon shortly after I’d put this together but perhaps unsurprisingly he didn’t like it because to his ear it had some ‘euro’ elements to it which I would have thought were the lead synth line towards the end. The original ‘surreal’ mix is a moody as they come trance break beat track which blows this mix out the water but I thought I’d put it up for people to hear as I recon it’s got it’s charms. I was really churning out the tracks at this point, riding a wave of enthusiasm.
