    Default Custom edits of popular tracks...

    Here's something i've been doing lately.
    I've been taking some of the tracks that i play out regularly, and doing a little edit to them. Nothing big, i'm trying to do a remix. Just trying to give the people something unexpected.

    So here's an example, "Zero Machine" by Le Castle Vania, at a point in this song i always wished some break would come. But after the drop on the original it just goes into the main hook for the song. Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, but i felt like it needed something more. So i added a nice wobbly break. I just chopped up some samples using Ableton's slice to new midi feature, a few Samplers, and a Simpler for the wobble bass, and voila, the break that i always wanted.



    My edit is around 1:58.
    Let me know what you think.

    The download is now available to all.... or at least the first 100 people to download it... Damn soundcloud free limitations. I think its time to get a pro account.

    I think it's awesome to do stuff like this. If anything it gets you into production if you aren't into it already.

    That and, it just overall makes your sets a little more exclusive and helps build your name. I mean how many people were fiending for this edit or that edit? Keep it up!
