This track has had a special place in my heart since it first released years ago in BT's grammy-nominated album, These Hopeful Machines. A pioneer such as BT meeting with one of the most impeccable and angelic vocals in Dance, JES, was bliss waiting to happen. These two have put together a track that not only is beautiful in its musical composition, but in the palpable lyrics that accentuate and define Every Other Way.
I wanted to go beyond a "typical remix" for this one. I've spent the last 3 weeks working on this and not limiting myself to what's traditional. I didn't go into it thinking "I can only make it this long" or "'CHECK OUT THE DROP AND SAY IT'S EPIC'". It was done when it was done. I just wanted to make a beautiful piece of music that honors the original, while, of course, having my interpretation shine and differentiate. I wanted something that not only caused a reminiscence of the original, but one that could also be fresh and DJ friendly.
I imagined a story while writing this remix. Closer to the end you'll notice an "over-the-telephone effect" while strings staccato and pianos arpeggiate to make it seem as if a couple is talking about the future of their relationship. The music intensifies, and your imagination interprets the rest. Later on you'll notice the "telephone effect" fade and go back to normal, as if the two meet again.
That's just me though. Everyone perceives art differently.
Enjoy these 12 minutes of Every Other Way.
