Following a suggestion by PCLeddy in comments, I have decided to remix Kool and the Gang's classic "Jungle Boogey".
The original is too fuzzy but I found a cover that sounded clean. I decomposed the song in four block (the whole song is an arrangement of those blocks). Scouting for compatibility was a bit of b*tch, even with harmonic matching however I did find 3 that matches greatly and decided to play with this.
The result are 3 mixes a/b/c in TF12
- Jungle Boogey + Zookey == Jungle Zookey
This version is very close to the original. The polydrums supports plays nicely and doesn't impact the melody too much. This is a true "nip and tuck" close to the original.
- Jungle Boogey + The Path == A Path through the Jungle Boogey
The Path is great Detroit classic that is notoriously difficult to mix with everything else including itself. However here blocks of Jungle fit nicely. The resulting track has 2 interesting parts. The beginning with "Feel the funk" from Jungle rapidly evolves as the Path's melody kicks in and modulates the melody from Jungle. Surprising result.
- Jungle Boogey + L8 == Acid Jungle Boogey
L8 is a very acidish track. Even though it is low-key its acid nature overtakes everything and most of the work was on the reconstruction of the structure of Jungle to match L8. This is a new beast, completely different from the original and qualifies as a acid track remix.
Enjoy, more to come. Feel free to suggest stuff: 70's, 80's, Funk, Soul, Pop.
