The completed re-worked Servant and Mastermix now called Servant and Re-Mastermix. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] I have now discovered that the original Servant and Mastermix was made by MegaMiXers. In the Links section further below, I have supplied … Continue reading →
After a brief detour, away from the remix project, it is now done – or as done as I’ll need it to be.
As mentioned in a previous post, I only stumbled upon two minor problems:
At the end of the ‘Get The Balance Right‘ track, there originally is a percussions part that I haven’t been able to find. At a point I thought that ‘Why’ (Remix), by ‘Bronski Beat‘ had the last part, but that was a dead end. Finally I replaced the percussions part, with a “percussion” part from ‘Why’, by ‘Bronski Beat‘
Almost at the end of ‘Goodbye 70’s’ there is a echo of ‘Fashion War’ – the last line of the verse. I wasn’t able to reproduce this part in a satisfactory way, so this part has been omitted, unfortunately
Besides the two minor problems, the work with the remix went really smooth. There was of course all the hard work finding the correct parts of ‘Situation’ …
If I was to step back for a moment and look at the remix in detail; the first half of the remix is quite brilliant (cut/fade/overlay) but the last part is a bit dull.
It is as if, someone who really loves the music did the first part but the last part was finished by someone else – in a real hurry. And that is a shame.
The original Servant and Mastermix consists of 12 songs – divided into 17 parts, beginning at 108 BPM and finishing off at 150 BPM. Luckily, most of the tracks used are album and single tracks and easy to come by.
As work progresses, I’ll post a few before/after bits of the mix, even though the ‘after’ bits aren’t finished yet and is still missing a volume mix and also a finishing touch.
Story Back, when I was a little boy, I had this wonderful mix on tape. It was back in 1987-88 and I got it through a friend’s friend – or something. At that time, I didn’t know the name of … Continue reading →
