An amazing few weeks and the curse of the remixer!!

15 Jul

The last few weeks have been a fantastic time for me. As well as finishing a very busy work period, I’ve also been asked to do some remixes for a couple of major artists – which was very exciting and also slightly daunting at first but once I got my teeth into them, the nerves disappeared and I’m enjoying every second. When I think back only three or four years ago, I would have sold my sister (If I had one) to even just get my stuff played out at a gig so to be asked to work on official remixes for well known artists is mind blowing for me. More news soon….

The remixes are going well – I’m really happy with how they are coming along but its so hard to escape from the dreaded remixer’s curse – by that I mean, no matter how well a certain mix is going and I might have laid down some nice keys or a funky bassline but somehow you can’t stop thinking that you could do it better or find a nicer sound to use! I think anyone who’s ever had a go at remixing will understand exactly where I’m coming from. Its truly a nightmare and somewhere along the line I have to have a word with myself and convince myself that what I’ve already done is good….you should hear the neiltomo ‘hidden’ files…there’s probably a gem or two in there somewhere…haha!

Anyway, more news coming soon….thanks for all the support and apologies for the radio silence over the last few weeks.

Cheers, Neil

    Glad it’s going well. That feeling that somehow you’re settling for something less good and thinking you’re mossing a better idea is so natural and part of yhe creative process. Best to think of everything as an unfinished project this helps me as I know that if the better idea comes along I can always rework it or start it off knowing that it will be better. Painters , writers , designers often feel let down or see their work as unfinished ,incomplete. It’s a curse not just for the remixer. KTF. Terry’SoulFly’
