The Entire #StimulatedRemix Collection & My Unknown Fans :-(


The entire collection of Stimulated Remixes is now posted and available (scroll down).  Well… It’s actually missing a few remixes (Jay-Z, J-Lo, Ciara, more Aaliyah), but those were kinda corny (to me).  But… I digress.  I’ve made just about every remix available, with few exceptions.  There are some rough mixes that I’m still working on, but they’ll drop in time.
 
I’ve been so blessed.  These remixes have been rocking in clubs, high-end hotel rooftop pool parties, radio stations, podcasts, mixtapes, choreographer/dance videos and various stage productions around the world.  Who knew?  I didn’t know.  I started these remixes out of boredom, after being stuck in Tampa and tired of making tracks.  I never really considered remixing prior, but now, after so many remixes, I can’t get enough.  The beauty of the remix, in my opinion, is the ability to take something from one genre and rework it into something sweet for a completely different genre and audience of listeners.  From BK streets to Miami beach sunset chic, anything is possible. 
 
These remixes landed me radio interviews and a gang of fans I STILL DON’T KNOW.  Thats the one thing I don’t like.  I NEVER KNOW WHERE MY WORK WINDS UP and who appreciates it.  I’m an artist.  I’d love to connect with the people who like my work.  It’s 2014 and I just found out Phonte (Little Brother, Foreign Exchange) and DJ Brainchild rocked my Aaliyah remix on their Gordon Gartrell Radio show in 2009.  How did I miss that?  More important, how the hell did they get word of my work?  I may never know.
 
I would like to change this, because I enjoy sharing my work with people.  Now that this is my sole way of earning a living it has become more important then ever.  If you’ve seen my stimulated remix somewhere in the world, or if you heard about me via some show or mixtape, reach out to me.  I’d love to know.
 
Love and light.
Be well.
Be wild.

#PHONTE & #DJBRAINCHILD rock my #REMIX — who knew?


Talk about being out of the loop…  I wish I knew this when it happened, but like I always say… I NEVER KNOW WHERE MY WORK WINDS UP.
 
It turns out in 2009, Phonte (Little Brother, Foreign Exchange) and DJ Brainchild rocked my Aaliyah Rock the Boat Remix on their Gordon Gatrell Radio podcast (THANK YOU!!!!).  I know its long ago, but… Wow.  It’s an honor and a surprise to be in a playlist with my own favorites, J*DAVEY, Miguel, Dilla, Estero, Little Dragon, Atjazz and many, many more… Huh… I don’t know what to say… I’m still wondering how the Gordon Gartrell Radio show even heard of my remix. Check it out here (remix and related banter about 59 minutes in the show):


Shout out to DJ HARLEMBROWN. Thanks for letting me know.

I wish I had the original version.  I would be nice to compare the two.  The original is COMPLETELY different.  :) An old remix… I really love the piano stuff at the end.  I hope you get that far.  Its a long song.

I really like the bassline on this remix.  That and the pads give this a nice groove.  Not too keen on the drums…  I might have to reuse that bassline.

Continuing with the “scrapped” remixes… I didn’t really scrap this one.  It was one of the last few I did.  I kinda didn’t want to do this song, because the original track was so hot to me.  But… I kinda wanted to make it a bit more laid back… So here it is… Sloppy keys and all.
