Week 22! yeeeeezaaay!!
my week has been complete and utter chaos i tell you! And I was really hesitant about doing this refix because of the amount of samples in it, but yesterday i thought “if i just MAKE the samples myself it should be fine right?” it was a gamble but i think it payed off! the messed up thing is that i finished this refix in a very short space of time, but because i was just so busy, i could only upload it now! 😥
APOLOGIES for the mix! although instrumentally its pretty close, the mix is near enough awful! eek!
anyway you crazy cats! till next tiiiime!
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 20! MY VOICE IS GONE STILL! SORRY!
yaaargh its pretty darn bad too, i had a show in madrid on wednesday, came back thursday to realize id lost my voice, had to perform in the g-shock shop on friday (ironically with wretch 32), then did a video shoot for my new single overload on saturday! can you say epic fail?
but hey VERY busy week, but it got done in the end! The mix on this is a liiiiiil bit scrappy but with 12 hours sleep between 4 days what do you want from me!?!
whats that? you want a well mixed refix you say?? very clever lol
anyways people thats it from me till next week! im off to bed! at 6pm! o_O!
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 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!
week 11… its 1pm, again no sleep, and my laptop got wiped. good times! haha.
ok this week its the man himself mr labrinth!
I Added a HELL of a lot of things that wern’t in the original, from hi hats and cymbals to guitars all over the place, oh and I think its the first time i put down a guitar solo at the end of a refix too. Ive taught myself quite a few instruments this past year, but one that I havent quite got the hang of yet is the keyboard, and that made the main riff of this refix take a while to say the least.
I hope he gets to hear this as id LOVE to hear what he thinks if my remake haha!
anyway till next week guys and gals…
week 7: I will not lie, i’m VERY proud of this one! When I first thought to do this song i though it would be near enough impossible to recreate an entire brass section and violin with just my guitar but i think i pulled it off! there are one ore to cutting issues with this one, but hopefully it wont stop you enjoying all the same!
until next week 😀
