Ive started doing weekly refixes again just to shake the frustration of recording without being allowed to put anything out and this week I did Drakes ‘Fake love.’ I Usuall remake everything from scratch but as a friend of mine where the exact samples were from, the beat sounds near identical. the only thing I didnt nail were the sub drums but whatever. I reeeally regret not adding guitars too, but I was a bit short on time with it, I rewrote all the lyrics as always though, and I even had my first try at adobe after effects ro make the moving vid, so thats something lol.
Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it. till next week!
I know I put something of ed’s only a little while ago, and it kinda makes me cringe how much im blogging on him but hey, I like good music and my boy’s churning out the Bangers!
I wanted the song on my iphone so I turnt it into an audio file, without the interview bit at the begging and thought i might as well share the love so you can download it here
Check the video below:
I’ve been slacking a little on the updates with what’s going on with me recently, but thats only because I had a lot to prepare content wise for you all.
As you may (or may not) know, I’ve put my band ‘random impulse’ and have started a new project using my real name ‘Jovel.’ Now Random Impulse is by no means gone, It’ll be back, but you have to go with the flow of wherever your creative juices take you, hence this new project. Now this new music isn’t going to be 100% completely different, but its definitely different enough for me to need a new alias for it.
the MAIN difference, without sounding cheesy, is that this new music is honest: Its all from things Ive really seen and experienced, without trying to compromise anything to make it more ‘universal.’ Sonically its… well you’ll hear for yourself, and I’ve got a big surprise for you with how Im going to present it in the live shows.
MY NEW TWITTER
ANYWAY!!! because random impulse is on hiatus & wont be tweeting anything, I have to start a NEW twitter for this project which is @JovelMusic So if you could all follow me on that, I can stay in touch with you and keep you updated as and when things happen, as well as answer any questions you have etc.
THE 47 FREE TRACK MIXTAPE
The ‘Downloads’ section of this blog has been naked for quite a while now, so Ive decided to compile ALL of the refixes Ive done and my ‘100 tracks in 4 minutes’ freestyle into one quick download. If you don’t know, my refixes are where I pick a song, remake the entire instrumental from scratch using electric guitar, drums, base and synth, then write and perform my own lyrics that are based on the original. Im gonna be throwing this out once this new twitter gets 1000 followers, and although its only been a day, i’ve got half of that already. so get following and keep your ears peeled in the next few days for this mixtape & a LOT more secret content dropping, but more on that later
