So recently Shure sponsored a remix competition giving producers a chance to rework Snow Patrol’s track ‘Fallen Empires’ which is the title track from their latest album. Really enjoyed working on this project and I’m really pleased with how my take on it came out. It was quite a challenge taking on the full vocal track and giving it my Electro House twist while trying to keep the overall vibe in the track intact.
The original clocks in at 147 BPM and here I take it down to 129.7 BPM to bring it more in line tempo wise to the material I play when DJing. The stems (original song parts) supplied were of the highest audio quality (24Bit / 96Khz) and I think you can really hear that in the production as I kept the whole project at that high rate. Previously every other track I’ve worked on I’ve used the standard studio rate of 16Bit / 48Khz but I think from here on in I’ll be working at the higher rate.
The crisp treble and punch in the bass is what its all about peeps 😀
