Avarine - Tricks (Laguna slow motion mix)

By laguna on September 17, 2018 12:01 am

This week I have to give special thanks to Avarine for her inspiration and kindness, allowing me to remix her song from week 2: Tricks.

I really loved the synth lines and that somewhat melancholic melody, though I was hessitant to ask. This remix has not any proper funky bassline (as I imagined in my head) and lacks a lot of details and variations. The sound is too thin on some moments and I didn't have the time to add some new melodies. Maybe you'll be better listening to the original wink

Again, thanks a lot for allowing me to use your music as a starting point. I'll keep working on this one beyond WB, for sure.

Not much time to make music, yet still I wish you all a great week, wherever you are smile

So cooooool!! I'm honoured that you chose to remix my track. I love the direction you took it, it's heaps more trappy than I know how to do. Love the way the beats develop through the track. I really enjoyed listening to this smile

Went back to check the "Tricks" track (say that fast three times): both versions are great; outstanding re-work on your part!

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, Avarine, specially since I wasn't able to keep you properly posted on the progress due to lack of time. I must admit I'm pretty relieved smile

I've been working on it today, adding beats and pieces here and there (it seems that my main reverb was off the whole time when rendering because of me updating macOS and not updating Max for Live accordingly). Yet still I haven't got a final bassline smile

Never thought of those beatbox beats as "trap" (maybe the rolling hihats?). Guess I'm getting old and keep thinking about "dirty south" when I hear a flaring 808 smile

Again, thank you very much for letting me use your song and take it to a new different direction.

Thanks a lot, Jim. It means a lot that people like you continue to give a steady feedback. Also, I'm happy you enjoyed both versions. Hope I did not digress from the original too much

I just checked out Avarine's original tricks track and I can see why you wanted to remix it.  The cool opening arp line is very inspiring.  Your remix builds on that and has a nice underwater feel cuz of the slowed down trip hop feel.  I think it's more trip than trap imho wink

Thanks a lot for both checking my version and Avarine's original. I really love the "underwater" remark, and personally I'm completely out of touch with the current "trap" thing. Guess I'm old enough to consider it just plain old 808 hip hop, though I still dig the occasional Hudson Mohawke track (he's really imaginative and good)

Thanks again for listening, man!
