Centercourse is back in swing and this is our latest banger. Zero 7 seemed a perfect remix for introducing our newer, harder sound through a familiar track that downtempo enthusiasts know and love. Enjoy and download it free here.
DJ Rap and I got a hold of the multitrack masters of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and decided to wrap it up in electro. ala Dirtyloud, this track was a blast to make because I got to flex my Drum&Bass bones with heavier, dirtier synths and also opened up for a lot of edits.
Enjoy, Download, and Share:
Synthesis, which I produced and co-wrote with DJ Rap last year, has just come out on iTunes and climbed up to #9 on the iTunes dance chart in the first 24 hours! It’s an honor to sit next to Daft Punk and Deadmau5 on the iTunes Dance page.
This record was in ways a very experimental record and in others just a straightforward song album, I honestly believe there’s something for everyone here. Some of my personal favs, you’ll hear a lot of me in these:
Dave Lewis was looking for some extra electronic programming on his debut jazz record (in mastering now) and had me sprinkle some synthetics on a few of his tracks. Awesome working with such a great rhythmatician, and what came of our sessions really glistened up the tracks. Crispy, atmospheric kind of stuff.
He’s a ridiculous drummer to note, check out his site here:
One of the tracks I produced and co-wrote for DJ Rap’s forthcoming album “Synthesis” will be on this evening’s episode of The Hills [11.03.09] on MTV. “I Just Wanna Feel Good” is the name of the track… I’m not sure where it’s placed but they’ll have a tag on the screen when the track plays.
Here’s a sampling:
Just finished a remix for Jeremih’s latest track “Under”. Went with a really gritty synth line for the bass on this to give the flavor of the lyric an edgier feel. Added some harmonies to the vocal to support the new chords, laced in some DnB flavor, and double/half timed the choruses/verses.
