Remixes & Samples

What’s good about great tracks is that they can have many incarnations. A meaningful song could have been a hit in the 50’s and then re-imagined by a fresh 80’s act. A rock anthem from the 70’s can sound new when a DJ puts it to a beat that’s twice the tempo or half the tempo. Snippets from disco recordings have been put on top of infectious grooves by sampling geniouses like Daft Punk or Breakbot to make brand new tracks. Gotye and Kimbra’s 2012 smash hits “Somebody that you used to know” was written around two chords sampled from Brazilian guitarist Luiz Bonfá’s “Seville”, an instrumental track from his 1967 record. 
Many times a DJ or label want to make a remix but the original tracks can’t be used: maybe the multitrack is lost and there’s no access to the isolated instruments, or speeding up the song too much degrades the quality, or the recording is locked-up due to copyright barriers lifted by a family member of the deceased or insane or retired artist. Reasons are countless. 
What we do in those cases is to call a professional singer that already has a similar voice tone and have him or her replicate the exact phrasing, groove, accent, pronunciation and feel, crafting a perfect copy of the original. Focus is also put into figuring which microphone and console models were used and what’s our closest option to that.
