Recently I have been working on a couple of remix projects. One for jazz-fusion band ‘Subject 2 Change’ featuring staff from the Otago Music Department. The other is a couple of tracks from the album ‘The Stone Soup Sessions‘ by John Egenes. 

Drawing from the stems available on the remix site John has, I selected two tracks to remix. The first is the track ‘Little Bird’ – a lovely little folky tune featuring acoustic guitar and vocals. I took that extended it out a little, edited the vocals and replaced the acoustic guitar with a percussive accompaniment. Here is my remix version:

The other track I went for is a song called ‘Crazy Sons of Bitches’. I took this country tune and rearranged sections, removed some stuff, and added some synth bass, electronica drums and some distorted harmonica to create this kind of electro-blues version of the tune:

Free downloads of both tracks are available on Soundcloud.
