Orbital- Halcyon+off (fm campers remix)

September 22, 2009 2:44 AM

The remix I did for the song that changed the way I perceived music, forever.

I've always loved this track. The first time I heard the live version, with the "heaven is a place on earth " sample breakdown/reversing/everything coming together thing, it blew my mind. Hope you enjoy my ode to it.

I loved Halcyon+on+on too. To my untrained ears, I find your remix nicely put together and the tempo reduction is a great idea, but those relentless "cuts" are quite jarring and make it hard to keep listening. Just my opinion though.

well, it's certainly intentional, definitely not for everyone. It's more about what the music did to me, and my interpretation of it, than about pleasing a dancefloor. Thanks for the comment.

This rocks. The source track has been one of my favorites for a long time.

Very trippy and jilted but nothing like what I'm used to hearing in electronic music. Most of the stuff out there today is very clean, neat and polished. I like the 'back masking' approach you used with the vocals, like when I'm in a dream state of mind and I jump from one picture to another. Nice job. Free falling.

Thanks -- an intriguing rework of one of my all-time favorites.
