If the music industry wouldn’t killed me with the dumping and overdose of mediocre products last year, more aggressively then ever, “Feel You’re Different”, the debut album of this NY based trio, definitively would made it to the list of my favorite albums of 2011. Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance last year to listen it, fortunately I have it now. Indaba and (probably) the band offered their track “With the Pieces” to be remixed. The first thing which stroked me was the excellent sound. Produced/engineered/mixed by Mike Sapone and mastered by Emily Lazar & Joe LaPorta, the track – and the album – sounds awesome! Intense and clean, groovy and cutting, really-really rocks! The song is also great, have some killer verses, pounding drums, a murderous bass-line and huge vocals. Honestly and… actually I did not felt like it need to be remixed at all. But!
I re-arranged the track a little-bit, make some small changes in its structure and build-up, added some nervous synths and wobbling basses, and not at least some good-old fashioned distortions. I make it sound a rawer and heavier, but tried not to mess it up too badly… 😆
Hope you’re gonna bang on this!
Listen and if you like, please don’t forget to vote for my remix!
The band now released a special limited vinyl edition in 4 different color options, and a very special DELUXE edition.
