This past Sunday Germany Germany released his album Adventures over at his bandcamp page.If you haven’t bought it yet, do so now and then continue to read this post. While I was on his main site I saw that he had released stems for his song “Reflections” in case anyone wanted to remix it. I figured I’d take a crack at it so I downloaded them and got to work. The following is an in depth look at the creative and technical processes involved.
When I first started working on the remix I had a really nice mustache going and I felt good. I was designing timbres on my miniKorg and had set up a nice drum sequence. My mom kept trying to convince me to shave the ‘stache and she’d tell me that it looked horrible. All the bros at my gym felt otherwise, and when it comes down to it guys with big muscles know more than moms do when it comes to cool facial hair.
I suffered a serious setback after designing some of the timbres and getting the bass line recorded. While trimming, I accidentally pressed to hard and screwed up the mustache. I’m convinced it occurred because my mom was subconsciously hoping that it would happen and kept sending negative energy at me. Moms can be a bitch like that sometimes.
I was not to be deterred, however, and I got right back to work. After a few days I had another solid ‘stache going. Also, I had finished the remix. I sent it off to Lindsey to listen and she liked it so she sent it directly to Germany Germany himself. I got lucky and he ended up liking it, too. He even said he’d consider including it on a remix EP.
