Vampires (ScarKord Remix)

Glitchy remix from a few years back of the Clear Air Turbulence track ‘Vampires’, featuring Siqboi on vocals (in there somewhere 🙂 ). Given an update, a bit of spit and polish and some analogue bassline goodness for 2013.

The Industrial Zone (ScarKord Remix)

Here’s a new remix I’ve done for Savage Sound System that will be featured on their forthcoming remix EP.

I have a soft spot for singers and rappers who don’t try and disguise their regional dialect, so really enjoyed remixing this track. Had a lot of fun squeezing some Native American chanting into the choruses too (You’ll understand when you hear it) and did literally hundreds of micro edits to get the drums swinging just right.

The remix is underpinned by some lovely evolving pads, courtesy of the excellent Hideaway Studio Blue Zone series, using a combination of their Ambivox and Heavenly Pad instruments. Definitely worth checking out and really reasonably priced too!

ScarKord revisted

Have just been going through some backups and came across a folder of old ScarKord remixes. Have spent the evening listening to them, reminiscing and in some cases, wondering just how the hell did I come up with those sounds / arrangements / breakdowns / drops (delete as appropriate).

Anyway, it’s both inspired me to do some new remixes and reminded me that I did some pretty good remixes in the past. I’ve put a selection up on Soundcloud for your listening pleasure. If you are in a band and like what you hear, get in touch and we can have a chat about a ScarKord remix of your very own (ha ha). Jason at scarkord dot com

Ariel Aparicio remix and collaboration

Happy New Year!

Got a couple of bits of good news for you. Firstly, Ariel Aparicio has kindly made my remix available to download from his website.

Go and check it out here…

Also, Ariel sent me one of his older demos, a track called ‘Feel the Rush’ which he thought might fit my style of music pretty well and he suggested we collaborate on a new version. The re-recorded backing track is all but done and Ariel is planning to go in the studio soon to cut the vocals. Can’t wait to hear the result!
