Near the end of the summer I was contacted by a producer from London called BRASSICA who wanted me to sing on one of his tunes. After checking his stuff out and deciding that it is in fact very good, I agreed! It came together relatively quickly too, in terms of writing, because there was a lot to draw on in the music. It's rich synth-and-guitar disco that reminds me a bit of Daniel Wang. The tune has ended up being called Without Your Loving, and its about not knowing when to let go of a relationship, even if it's doomed. I prefer the title Without You I'm Nothing, which I guess is ok as it's Brassica's tune, though out of interest I might run a little poll here to see which one readers prefer ;-)

Here is a remix that did get released in the end!

I got this through a DJ called Matt Walsh who charted the Hots at no. 2 in his DJ charts (wow!!). When I contacted him to say hello he asked if I would be up for remixing his music project called Clouded Vision, which is Matt and the producer Steve Cook. I said sure, and after receiving the track decided to take it in a Lindstrom-y / Brennan Green-y electronic disco direction. So far the response has been good.

I've also been getting into remixing a lot lately, thanks to a friend referring me to a remix agency and also using Ableton Live, which makes sampling, quantising and arranging easy peasy.

The first remix I got offered from the agency was for a band from Liverpool called Wave Machines. To improve my chances of getting a remix accepeted (no payment otherwise) I did two - one upbeat mix for clubs, and one vocal mix for radio play. Unfortunatley both of them got knocked back, but there have been some mutterings from some dance labels about them, so you never know, they might see the light of day at some point. But just for you, my buddies, here they are. Grab em quick before the links expire...
