“The Post,” the song that I rewrote, recorded, mixed, and mastered during a short two weeks last month, was chosen for the Indaba Sync Library. This is really exciting news, because it represents the first such acknowledgement of my musicianship and production skills. Plus: I have a really cool “Pro” designation on Indaba. (And, oh yeah, “The Post” might show up somewhere on some kind of mass media content!)
The past couple of years I spent with my face in the academic side of this stuff—which I consider “putting myself through a college music program”—were well spent. Through much practice, I am finally in a position to make the musical stuff I envision happen, and have fun while doing it. Indaba provided (and continues to provide) an excellent platform to apply what I was learning and continue to learn.
“The Post” is also my 10th submission to the site, so it seems like a good time to post my Indaba resume of songs I’ve remixed so far:
- The Post (original “dirty blues rock” submission that I just wrote about)
- Chocolate by Big Boi (hip hop)
- Havoc by Adrian Daniel (R&B)
- Swerlk by Scissor Sisters & MDNR (disco rock)
- Free by Body Language (club)
- Always With Me by Jesus on the Mainline (folk-ish)
- Homies by Frenchie B (French language rap)
- Lover In Dark by Benta (alternative pop)
- Rasta by Jah Cure (reggae)
- Face Your Fear or Die by Vifolly (modern rock)
Shout out to Uncle Bruce, the author of the original version of this song, and my archetypal musical inspiration. I hope we end up with spoils to share!
