Mark de Clive-Lowe - Crush Velvet (Foursixone Remix)



Original song by Mark de Clive-Lowe Remix production by Foursixone Mastered by Michael Gallagher Mark has offered many of his Mignight Snacks to his backers for remixing via the Patreon platform over the past two years. So I already had some of them on my studio machine and edited them in some way. I could have taken it easy on myself and just finished one of the approaches. Instead, however, I went through each of the Midnight Snacks and made a list of what I like about them. I really like "infinite" melodies, similar to Mark's collaboration with Atjazz "Awake We Stay". And in Crush Velvet I found exactly this kind of melody that I wanted to work with. I also knew that Crush Velvet is a very personal track for Mark as he dedicated it to his late friend Phil Asher. That's why two things were very important to me: on the one hand, I wanted to pick up on the emotionality and put myself in Mark's situation in a musical way and, on the other hand, I wanted to work as much as possible with the technical means that were up-to-date at the beginning of 2000. That's why I recorded all the sounds with a 12-bit E-MU sampler, arranged the key elements on an Atari and only digitized them for mixing at the very end. This process took some time, but it gives the result a contemporary rawness that I felt was appropriate for my reinterpretation. I'm really happy with the result and the feedback I received during production and afterwards, and makes me curious to see where the journey is taking me. ----- This remix was produced as part of the first Mashibeats remix contest and selected to be minted through community voting. Primary collectors will also receive the ltd edition remixes color vinyl EP including this remix - estimated delivery late October 2022.
