Quite a "foxy" mix, indeed. (Please don't attack me, but) I can't say that I've actually heard "Foxy Lady", nor that I'm a big house fan, and yet I'm rather surprised at how good a house remix of a classic rock song can be. I could definitely picture this being played in some underground dance club. Don't let anyone's negativity over how much it may "[butcher] the original song" stop you from exploring your creativity with your mixes!
don't respond to my comment
Umm....haha I'm going to respond anyway. I'm not sure why you told me not to respond to your comment but... thanks for the review and I'm glad you like the track! =)
once again you make a totally awesome song, keep it up.
Hello again, happygoat2. Thanks for reviewing yet another one of my tracks. I'm really glad you liked it. Anyway, I'm still tryin' to figure out what to work on next, but I'm sure I'll come up with something fairly soon. Later dude! =)
Nice housey thing you got here. Bass is pounding (maybe a bit too loud), kick and hat are EQ'd perfectly, and the sine/pseudoelectric piano thang was alright. Good stuff!
And it's a good thing it doesn't like the original. This is a remix after all.
Yeah you know what I'm talking about. There's definitely a big difference between a remix and a cover, but unfortunately I think a lot of people won't enjoy this simply because they expected something very different than this. It's like, walking into a strip club expecting titties but it ending up being a male strip club and getting, well, something very different than your expectations. Perhaps that's too ridiculous of a comparison, but it's all I could think of to describe the type of disappointment you may feel when encountered with the unexpected. Haha anyway man, thanks for the review. I agree the bass could be lowered a tad. I'm gonna remaster this with Pro Tools 8 when I have access to a studio in the fall. Later Rawrthaas! =)
I'm being nice here, this totally butchered the original song, way too damn repetitive and just generally doesn't sound a single thing like Foxy Lady, just that it had Jimi Hendrix's voice in it.
It's electro house music, therefore it revolves mostly around a fairly repetitive pattern like the majority of dance/trance/progressive/house music, you know, what most people would typically refer to as "techno". Electro remixes aren't usually meant to sound much like the original song, and it's still a new and unfamiliar genre, so it's definitely understandable that you would think that I butchered Hendrix. However, I did try to capture what I felt Jimi had in his music. It was funky and it was also aggressive and in-your-face, so I just tried to make it work. I also believe that a track like this will easily mislead someone with high expectations, especially if it's called Foxy Lady, but electro is a new genre revolving around gritty basslines, bloops bleeps and a bit of optional funk, so sorry if it wasn't what you were hoping for. You might actually enjoy some of my older work more if you're looking for more melodic music. Thanks for the review ComradeJack. Peace =)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
