Acidplanet remixes

Have posted a couple more older remixes to my Soundcloud page, both of which were originally for competitions on the Acidplanet website.

Starting with Bleed Electric’s Birds as High as Planes (ScarKord Remix), which is a pretty frenetic Drum and Bass version with some lovely bass sweeps and a crazy amount of edits on the vocals.

This is followed by a remix of Drowning in Ecstasy by Lords of Acid. My main recollection of this remix is that I really didn’t think much of the vocals, particularly in the verses, so I went full on Cylon with the help of a Vocoder to dirty them up and disguise the cheesy lyrics. Add some Aphex style percussion and an overdriven acid bassline and there you have it!

Clearing the Decks

Have posted a few more remixes to my Soundcloud account, two some of you may of heard before and one you definitely won’t have!

Firstly, I’ve uploaded my remix of Jesus Jones‘ ‘Idiot Stare’ from back in 2005. Not much to say about that one other than it was already a good track, and I (hopefully) improved it a little by beefing up the drums.

The second track is a lot more exciting though, and truly a lost remix! The story behind my remix of Gabriel Rios‘ track ‘Broad Daylight’ starts in 2007. I was working for the Digital Agency LBI and one lunchtime, demonstrated to a colleague Paul how I used Sonic Foundry’s Acid software to produce my remixes. He passed me the Gabriel Rios track to see what I could do with it and this is the result.

Ten years on, and it still sounds really fresh to my ears. I should probably have put it out long ago, but better late than never!

Rounding things off is one of two remixes I did of the Amanda Blank track ‘Might Like You Better’ back in 2009.

The other remix was a quick drum and bass remix, but trust me, this was by far the better version. It even has one of my trademark fake endings with bonus acid synths.

I wonder what I’ll find next 😉

Meat Beat Manifesto – ScarKord Mixtape

Another mix from my archives. This time, a mini mixtape of sorts built around drum and synth loops from various Meat Beat Manifesto tracks, remixes and solo tracks by Jack Dangers. Includes the obligatory ‘Radio Babylon’ too but with a new, dirty acid bassline I added in there to spice things up a little. “It’s in my brain now…” and hopefully, in yours too

Who we are? (ScarKord Remix)

Just finished my second remix for Savage Sound System featuring vocals by Werd. Couldn’t decide whether to go uptempo or downtempo, so included elements of both in the same mix

Very different sounding to the original, both musically but also in terms of the vocals which have tons of microedits to get the timing to fit. Really happy with how it turned out, particularly the switch to the double time ‘rap’ section at around 1:15.

The instrumental part from 1:45 onwards reminds me a little of Orbital now I think of it, but this was entirely unintentional 😉

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.
