Infamous - Parallax
This tune took about 2 weeks to make, then over a period of a year i went back to it over and over again to try and flesh it out .. it was originally a 1:1 redoing of the tune but i realised so many had already done that, that I didnt want to be part of the crowd so I took
paragraphs of the tune and then worked around those sections keeping in the parts that i felt are most recognisable to the original. hopefully ive done a good enough job for at least one person other than myself.
I am relatively proud of this work, a combination of two daws (ableton and buzz) and not that many vsti's for once too.. I used the sylenth for the leads, the bass comes from the nexus which I re-recorded down to sample's so I could mess around with them in audition so they didnt sound too recognisable from that vsti. Bits and pieces i made in vangaurd and the massive flesh things out nicely and the drums as usual programmed from the bottom up by myself. Cut up and .rex'd so they could be messed around with suitably.
Anyway.. i hope you enjoy the tune.
The intro is pretty cool sticking to the spirit of the original, but I feel the rest seems to be too afraid to cross over from the simple side.
From around 5:30 it takes on a definite kraftwerkish quality: pumping base, electronic drums, all the goodies. Unfortunately, it doesn't last too long.
Another satisfying part develops after 8:30-ish which demonstrates loads of creativity.
All in all, a technically superb remix with a few remarkable portions, but I wish those remarkable portions filled out the rest of it, too.
