Winter Sunlight (featuring Leza2unes)

Just wrapped up another new mix for Snowflake's Music for Tibet project. This one features vocals by Leza2unes, and I again kept it pretty simple, with a simple beat, bass, and a few guitars.

Amazing Grace (featuring Frank H. Carter III)

Songboy3 aka Frank H. Carter III is one of the finest vocalists at His vocal tracks are both inspiring and excellent, and to have access to them and be able to create new musical works with them is a real treat.

I'd been wanting to do something with this for some time, and had no excuses yesterday as I was recording the latest Cool Music show. For this, I recorded 2 tracks of 1-take live beater Sigma guitar, a DI track with my P-Bass, and a whole bunch of hummin backing harmony vocal tracks. With the song itself being such a classic traditional piece, and with Frank's beautiful interpretation, I didn't really want to clutter it up with too much, or detract from his vocal track.

Big Guardian Angel

New remix I posted recently featuring the wonderful vocals of Jacinda Espinosa. Actually, it's more like I worked up a simple acoustic arrangement based on her vocal track. I made some minor changes, like where the bridge comes in, but i more or less kept it intact. Recorded with my beater Sigma acoustic into a large diaphragm condenser, as well as with a P-bass direct in to an MBox/ProTools.

The Secret Mixter

Just wrapped up a couple new remixes for the "Secret Mixter" project over on ccmixter.

"The Orchestral Movements of 1932" features Jackson Torreal, Calling Sister Midnight, and MiElle of the BO Crew. It tells a story. You can read more about it from the download link below.

In addition, Loveshadow performed the daunting and most admirable task of slicing up a ton of my Cool Music voiceovers and turning me into a beat poet with "Things I Love Things I Hate".

2 more recent remixes

A flurry of activity lately! In addition to the recent "If I Wait" remix, I did a couple other remixes over on ccmixter.

"The Love Connection" features Loveshadow and Jhon Black. Lots of bounce per ounce on this one.

Ciggiburns is a dynamite english singer and one of ccmixter's best kept secrets. My nickname for her is "the voice". I know, it's unoriginal but it's the first thing I think when I hear her sing. She also does great radio promos. I've been wanting to remix her for some time, so I took CiggiBurn's vocals into the far depths of MIDI space with "Small Back Room - The Space Station mix".

If I Wait

Just wrapped up a new song/remix which I really like. The vocals are by Sunbyrn, and I do the rest. The drums are looped, but all the rest is me playing live.
