another sunday another refix! boom!
another sunday another refix! boom!
Week 23! ITS NOT MY FAULT THIS IS LATE!!
First off a BIG apology for the lateness! I was at studio ALL day getting my new single mixed down and to my horror there was NO internet to upload the vid! Upon leaving i FRANTICLY rushed home to try and upload before 12, only to have youtube reject my video AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN so if you’re reading this, we finally won!!
This song is an ABSOLUTE BANGER by one of dubsteps finest – True Tiger, featuring the super talented p money, so refixing this was a no brainer! Really enjoyed making this one, so much in fact, i couldn’t actually tell you which bits were easy and hard to remake! It all just kinda flowed out!
again sorry to everyone that checks each and every sunday, but fear not! im not done yet! not by a long shot….
Till Next week! 😀
WEEK 21! The second girl to ever get a refix, JESSIE J!
im really hype about this one as jessies from the uk (which inspired the refix subject) and shes one of the most amazing singer/songwriters of our time!
this whole song was one of he most fun to do and i was sooooo tempted to do the entire song! who knows, maybe i will at another stage!!
well, i hope you guys enjoy this and more importantly, BUY THE SINGLE!! we need songs like this representing our country!
WEEK 17.. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!!
At the time of writing this its 3:14 in the afternoon and ‘fake tales of san Francisco” by the arctic monkeys just came on my itunes. Those of you that follow me on twitter or facebook will already know the horror that ive had to deal with tonight.
to make a long story short, this week i had to mix my single and had a ton of meetings, leaving me with having only 8 hours sleep shared between the last 5 days. Pretty bad right? OH BUT IT DOESNT STOP THERE!!!
So its about 1am and im just adding the finishing touches to the refix and what happens?? MY COMPUTER SWITCHES OFF!!! before the rage set in, i simply switched the mac on again and started over, i mean you all know how late i work sometimes, so it wasnt the end of the world…
so im nearly finished with the refix for the SECOND time and what happens? LOGIC CRASHES AGAIN!! Its now around 5am and bare in mind the 8 hours in 5 days sleeping pattern. What do I do? for me there’s only one option…
DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!
Im SO thankful for everybody that comes on here, subscribes and comments on my refixes every single week and to me, you’re all worth that dedication.
I’ve just realized the irony of what took place tonight… its halloween haha, what a nightmare, pun intended.
well thats all from me! see you guys next week! and thank you again 🙂 PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
week 16! another week another refix and this week i went back to my grime roots with the CLASSIC top 3 selected by ghets (formerly known as ghetto)
This beat relies mainly on power, so as an electric guitarist its right up my street! The beat was remade in the record time of 2 hours (yes, yes im very proud haha)
For those that arnt familiar with ghettos work, as an m.c hs flow is out of this world, so it was VITAL that I go all out in that area lyrically to do it justice (and i like to think i did!)
You know today I woke up and realised that this is refix number 16, meaning that ive been doing this EVERY SINGLE WEEK without fail (even on my birthday) for FOUR WHOLE MONTHS. well… only 8 more months to go i guess haha.
DONT FORGET you can DOWNLOAD ‘THE REFIXES – VOLUME 1’ (WEEKS 1 TO 14) FOR FREE! RIGHT HERE: http://dev.bigspring.co.uk/jager/randomimpulse/free-downloads/
Im going to be releasing this free volumes every 50,000 views. Im on 60k at the mo so 40k more for the next installment!
week 15! and the first in the SECOND SEASON of refixes! (complete yayness!)
This week is a personal FAVE!
One of my best pals ed sheeran has been on tour with example for the past month and what better way to welcome him home then with his very own refix?
Now I realize that he isn’t as widely known as the majority of artists that I refix but that isn’t what these are about: they’re about refixing amazing music and putting my own take on it, and if you check out the original of this, you’ll instantly see how incredible a song it is!
you might be wondering what makes the first of season two, well thats because you can DOWNLOAD ALL THE REFIXES BEFORE THIS FOR FREE on the blog, in the ‘free downloads’ section by midnight TONIGHT!
OH OH! i also have my FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE dropping soon called ‘OVERLOAD’ so keep your eyes and ears peeled for the video!!
anyway thats all from me! and a big thank you to every one reading these! (especially KayteeMusicUK) nice to know im not rambling to myself! haha
anyway till next week! 😀
ok so I have the flu, its 8am, and have only tomorrow to get better for my show on monday… greeeeeat.
Anyway woooop! what a banger we have here! Me and dot wrote this a while back over one of his produced song ‘Real Talk 2’ but never ended up doing anything with it so i thought, why not spruce it up with a good old refix?
as im going to be releasing these refixes for download every 50k views I get on my channel, I thought id bend the rules for you guys and get a feature in!
The downloadable mp3’s will be available in the download section MIDWEEK, FRIDAY at the VERY LATEST! im just trying to sort out a graphic designer for the cover
week 13: I REALLY wanted to get a Plan B song down as the Musical Influence is right up my street! I was really surprised how quickly i got the instrumental though, but I guess as its organic music, im more tuned into it.
the pith in the chorus is NOT in my range at all, but i think its acceptable (or at least i hope!)
Lyrically… well lets just say im not in a good place right now and the lirics really reflect that…
a free download of the refixes from weeks 1-14 will be up for download NEXT WEEK in the free download section so look out for that!!
till next week 😀
Week 12! This week is Runaway by the ever so talented Devlin and Yasmin who not only sings, but happens to be my favorite Dj ever!
musically this was pretty straight forward, so instead I decided to focus closer on the lyrical aspects of the song. The original version describes a young man and his girlfriend escaping their surroundings in search of a place that delivers them true freedom, but there are always 2 sides of a story, so I decided to speak from the perspective of the young mans mother dealing with the fact that her child has runaway as it were 😀
the best part of this (and also the trickiest) was transcribing the melody of the hook into guitar. I gotta say, it has a VERY interesting structure that constantly moves, top marks to Yasmin for creativity and execution!
well, thats all from me this week, only 2 more weeks to go till volume 1 of the refixes are up for download too so keep your eyes peeled!
Again i had to pull an all nighter for this this one, a solid 27 hours to be exact. Ive been preparing my ep which is going to go hand in hand with the refix download as well as well as getting a SUPER AWESOME top secret refix organized so it was the only way! but anyway, on with the refix…
this week its my my fave track on boy Example’s MASSIVE track ‘see the sea!’ first time Ive made something even remotely reggae ‘ish’ in my life (I wont lie, I had to do some guitar chord research online!) but aside from that, there was nothing too out of the impulse ordinary instrumentally.
Where it gets cool however is my play of the title!
my freestyle basically explains the mentality of MANY artists that have a bit of a buzz. A lot of new artists that have only begun to gain recognition always seem to act as if they’re the big guy that runs the show, but I explain that they are only the big shark when in the small fish bowl that is the underground scene. My interpretation of “seeing the sea” is that although im in a fish bowl, I am aware how far I still have to go: there’s a whole sea to conquer, i “see the sea” and am not satisfied by being a mere bigger fish in a small pool.
…im rambling arn’t i? lol apologies, i must sleep.
anyway i hope you enjoy!
Till next week…
