This is my remix of 7 Skies Expanded for the FXpansion/7 Skies remix competition. I created the remix without hearing the original.
The remit was to create a track using at least 3 of the 7 supplied wavs, and optionally use any of the 7 midi tracks. I decided to use all 14 of the sounds but added around 35 tracks of my own including all the percussion. I also cut up parts of the original tracks, rearranged them and added various effects.
I wrote some lyrics for the middle of the track, which is sung by my cousin Mick Brears. I even managed to put some tubular bells in there. With some help and advice from both Mick & Bri I hope I’ve created a good solid pop dance track.
When I finally listened to the original several months after I was surprised how very different mine is. The original artist (and judges) are trance people so they may genuinely not like my “pop” version which would be understandable.
