I may have said that I'm not going to be posting new originals/remixes on here, but I will make news posts about them.
Hey guys! So me and Ionic Force are hard at work again with a remix that was originally for a Beatport contest but the deadline was March 11, 2014 at 12:59AM for us, but that's long gone as you can see. Do we care? Eh, not really. We weren't in it for the prizes. We just wanted something to get us out of our creative rut.
This is a preview of what we've got so far. I cut out the intro and the first complextro drop. The drop you hear here is just so we had something reminiscent of the original. The original didn't really have much of a melody, just that bass riff was it. There wasn't a chord progression, so it was just G# all the time. So I got to put my harmonizing skills to the test and pulled that gritty arp melody out of my ass. Then after Ionic Force made the pad and other arp, I ended up making that piano break. This track wasn't a particular favorite of mine by FTL, but I'm really enjoying making this remix.
Here's the original by Far Too Loud if you wanted to compare or something like that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ONv5fT4Yrc
