Years ago, I entered a remix contest for the band Lunik. For those of you who don’t know, Lunik is a Swiss pop/trip hop(a la Cardigans) band featuring the lovely Jaël as the lead singer. She has also done a couple tracks with Canadian group Delerium.
Lunik held the contest to promote their new album “Weather”. The objective was to remix the title track from the album.
I entered the following to the contest. I felt the tune was perfect for a dnb/trip hop treatment, but I needed to slow it way down to match the tempo I had in mind. You may find the timestretching of the samples sounds obviously “fragmented” in some places because of this.
Sadly, I didn’t win the contest. Either it was because I was American or they just plain didn’t like it. I still feel it’s some of my best work. I’ll let you make up your own mind.
