heard your call, Jack .. :D


it was tough choosin btwn jambo, club n saxor. all great stuff. arrangements, sound design, mixing/spacing

i voted saxor in the end, the minimalist approach is so working here. moving. liked the vox processing too - staying away from any hint of original melody i think worked better than semi-following the original (as all these are covers anyways, not a remix of original per se).

amazing effort. =D> =D>



@Jack: i think its bcs most ppl i know i do) automatically skip the sticky section, looking at regular postings. sounds absurd, as sticky is supposed to draw more attention, but its automatism of sorts.

They are a bit of a blind-spot - they're there, but they become 'part of the furniture' and blend into the background somewhat. :wink:

Now that I got the studio back in order I am ready to do my Bee Gees remix, oh, frick! missed it. Voted, but missed it. Being unemployed and doing nothing but sitting on forums this type of thing should not happen to me, poopers :?

Man, choosing was pretty hard! I went for OJ's in the end, but I actually liked all of them. CS-TBL's was probably the closest to the original in terms of arrangement, but that fact that it was all done with FM8 shows off his programming skills really well. Sexor, I loved that bit at 2:45! That awesome bassline at the start made it sooo difficult. 8)

Sexor's getting my vote. The only thing I can think to improve this would be using the Mac Speech program for the verse :). Clubbed has a lovely vocoder going on, though!

Thanks, Dracena!

Anyone worked out what I'm actually singing towards the end of the 2nd verse?
