hey guys, will catch up on any back logged feedback i need to give to the regulars especially the guys who check my tunes, i've been banging full steam and haven't had a lot of time to listen to much of anything. the good news is I'm in LA with a dope job and my productions are finally where i want them to start playing them in live DJ sets and that will all be taking place here in LA, exciting as hell!
this track is from a youtube video this girl did of a cover of Birdy Not About Angels, it was recorded with a cast member she works with on Under the Dome, and i was totally blown away by her voice... innocence but mature and rich, such a beautiful voice especially the way she hits the high notes, no shrieking at all, just smooth and well executed.
i decided i wanted to take another approach so yesterday i took another look at the vocals and processed, warped them into something else (the main challenge is the guitar in the background, which in this new take i'm working on sounds way better and isolated as a vocal) and it sounds pretty damn great, original chord progression and piano work, but i'll work on that more before i upload it. i'd love to make something that if she actually heard it would be moved. honestly i just think it would be bad ass to work on an original track with her! and she is pretty damn gorgeous, so hey, what the hell right?
the thing i'm most pleased with in the new version is the warping of the vocals to get the timing right with the rest of the arrangement and instrumentation, which sometimes for me can be hit or miss, but really nailed it in this time. anyway enough about that, i'll upload it soon!
