When I heard of this contest (http://www.indabamusic.com/opportunities/lalah-hathaway-my-everything-remix-contest/submissions/85723) and heard the song, it occurred to me that to really make this a challenge for me was not to keep it uptempo, but to flip the script and remix a dance track into a ballad...so there you have it ;) Funny enough, doing it that way, I actually listened to the lyrics and really heard the fullness of their meaning this way. I can hear this played at someone's wedding reception, perhaps lol
As for what I did? I simply used her vocals only, then decided to make it sound acoustic, so I didn't even quantitize or record to the 123 bpm metronome, but instead played it free-form. What you hear was all played on the keys, using Logic Pro 9 software instruments, and no loops/samples. Just Piano, strings, bass, and drums...and the incomparable Lalah Hathaway.
Not really concerned about the voting and what not, just did this for the fun of it and maybe get some free exposure, and perhaps even work with Lalah in the future? Who knows ;) I'm also posting on here for free download if you want a copy.
