AUDITION


as long as she thinks of a man
nobody objects to a woman thinking

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind audition
Feb/20

remix of a remix

right
think of it like there's this amazing cake
and now there's icing on it

ok, after a spurt of originals from scratch

I'm back into remix land here
there is this small scene, primarily in London U.K.
just a few years old
in my ongoing curiosity for fringy shit
I came upon it - very cool

it's loosely called 'wave' and is the vision

of a few young European electronic music beatmakers
the most notable being French born øfdream
who took his own life last year
this is his remix of London dark wave dj
verasect

it was about 5 minutes long

I took about 2 minutes, chopped it up
then stretching it out, kicking it up a notch
adding more analog synths and voices
ample logic automation on the mix
a total blast

the idea of crusty old men
gawking at a pole dancer came up early on
the track really ripped but felt incomplete and 
I needed something visual that would cut
I think making the clip was as much fun
it feels finished now

this is my 4th øfdream reconstruction

earlier remixes are on two lives & three lives
(links below)
now watch it again (and crank it)!

let's dance
