Reed - Panic Room (T-101 Diesel Remix)

Well then! This is a track I started working on back in 2010, and this is now the third and final iteration. I heard this track at Assembly 2008 as the soundtrack for the glorious Fairlight 64k. Blew my mind. I rarely do remixes, but for this I wanted to do one. Just to upgrade the soundscapes from the 64k track, and give it a little spice while I'm at it. At the first iteration I was actually consulting Reed that does he like it or not. He gave me the original vocal samples and told me it sounds "ok". Second iteration was almost the same but with new software, and what you are listening to now is the final iteration, where I decided to take the song to more my level, while still keeping with what makes the original so great. There!

On a technical aspect, this was pretty much what I do these days, except for the fact that my Line6 audiointerface DIED on me the last night I had to work with this track before I had to fly to Stockholm for the launchparty. The thing is: if that interface dies, my Line6 vsti's die with it, as they are harware dependant. With the help of Ziphoid and my mad skills I was able to rescue this, and record the final guitars and stuff needed. It is now 3:12 AM and I do have to wake up in the morning, and I am now listening to what I hope is what you will be listening when you read this!

Anyhow, small miracle this song made it. Greetings and Beerings to Reed for the original, greetings to Smash for the other stuff he did for the 64k. T-101 signing off.
