Fun game, guess the remix

Post by timforsyth »

Hey,

I’m nearly done making something new.

This is the intro, it’s a remix of my remix, question is, what tune am I re-remxing?

https://soundcloud.com/timforsyth/guess ... ivFRmKNW6d

Backstory - I must have tried 4 or 5 times to come up with an intro to this, in the end I spliced up my remix and attempted a daft punk which took on a life of its own.

A friend said I should have released the remix of my remix before my remix, but I’ve got a short attention span and fleshing this intro out filled me with dread, so I left it at the start.

Well, call me stupid, but I am not recognizing it. Sure sounds cool, though!

It's building to something familiar, but I can't place it. It sounds cracking, though.

I'm not going to venture a guess. But that's mostly because I got a notification that you have submitted something to the RKO queue earlier today.

That said, if you'd let it run for 2 seconds more everyone would have recognized it. :D

People better take guesses now before it gets published on RKO! Although, I guess, kwed, you can just hold it back as long as you wish to stretch this game a little longer. :D (Which was a great idea, Tim!)

It occurred to be because it sounds absolutely nothing like the remix or the original..

Apparently I’m No. 1 in the upload queue so I’m not holding anyone up if Jan fancies delaying it a few days..

Wow!
Took me over a minute until I could recognize it.
And as I was aware of the titel, I tried to so hard...
Fresh take. I'm surprised and yet not that surprised regarding who did this.
:cheers:
All is lost.

Found it on RKO. After hearing it, the clues started at about the 40 second mark.
If it had ran 1:02 ... yup give away.
Excellent remix Tim.
Two thumbs up!

Thanks Steve, it took a lot of experimentation and effort to find a vibe I was happy with.

If anyone's interested, here are a few variations from the cutting room floor, the first one shares a fair amount of similarity.

My original prototype, just to get the notes down:
