Original text:
Gone for a faster tempo style track, taking the original vocals and chopping them up to work around a more electronic sound. Managed to layer in the guitar too nicely. My favourite bit are the hums, reminds me quite a lot of Enya.

Would have liked to spend more time on this track to add a smidge more ambience, play around with volume levelling some more and fix the peaks, but it's quite late in the day now.

Other than that, enjoy and I'll be uploading more stuff soon. Got my hands on some Yamaha HS7s today, some sound proofing stuff and bass traps, going to actually spend time to set up my space properly. All my old tracks are literally run off 40 quid logitech speakers from years back. Hoping to make some difference in my mixing stage so everything comes out cleaner.

Not even going to attempt to mix this on the Yamaha's until my ears get used to them, so I'll likely be reviewing a bunch of NG stuff on those speakers, till I find out what things are supposed to sound like!

Anyway, back on topic, good luck to all the other contestants. Had a listen to all of your tracks and I'll drop a review once the tournament is over :)

All the best,

Writing this like a damn love letter / essay xD

p.s. what genre does this fit into? Chose Electronic - New Wave, but tbh, I had more Future Bass influences in mind when making it, especially the first drop. Like a lighter Dubstep?

p.s.2 1000 views! AWESOME :D

Awesome dude!

This is not ABHF review. I hope the spam is reduced now. ;)

Dang, this is really good. The remix breathes new life into the original, and at the same time it keeps to that original. It's balanced, it's chill, it's new and beautiful. The higher pitched vox actually kinda give off some of many cat vibes that are in EBF5 (by many I mean many), and it just feels really good to hear. I really love this remix, and I know I'll come back to this many times, because it really hits that sweet spot. Congrats on the first place win on the ABFH remix contest :D

ABFH Judge Review/Comment:

A lot of reviews have covered off a few points and stolen my thunder, but I think I'm committed at this point.

The beat and vocals definitely felt more Future Bass-y than New Wave, but I also associate New Wave with more synth (versus rock New Wave). It is a bit in that weird grey area though, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I've had a time enjoying what everyone has done with the vocal stem in particular, and this was no exception. You took a lament, and made it more upbeat. That can be challenging, but it worked well.

The plucking from 1:10-1:23 seemed out of place, as it wasn't replicated in the same way elsewhere in the track although 1:24-35 kept the same tone in a bit of a scale. It gave it a bit of a zither quality.

Good work, and good luck in the contest!
