firemixes

I was listening to Jimi Hendrix “Fire” and thought again about how it was a proto-drum-and-bass rhythm and how it would be interesting to remix it as such. I later read on Twitter that a bunch of first-generation d&b producers had done just that and listened to samples of the results where possible. Some were sort of cheesy with vocal reinterpretations. Photek’s was the best, closest to what I’d imagined in my mind’s eye (ear). I wrote a blog entry about it, as in actually wrote the whole thing out in the dream, making me late for helping with supper prep (I was at home in NH). Earlier I had been walking down a steep curved road in the woods from an area of McMansion development.
