    This is my first time remixing another person's song and I'm honored that it's for my friend and @Dark Humor collaborator, @reverendterryrice [Liberty, Kentucky]. I'm also excited about this being my first collaboration with fellow SoundClound artist, @Stikman [Birmingham, Britain], who brought his unique beats to help create the backbone for this track!

    This reworking will be part of Terry's "The Strong and the Reconstructed," which is the remix companion piece to his acoustic album, "The Weak and the Wounded." I was given the original vocal and acoustic guitar tracks, but I decided to start from scratch to create something completely different from the original. I also slowed down the vocal track 70% to transform the catchy country tune into something moody and heavy.

    The original remix vision was cinematic trip-hop, but the bluesy guitar riffs and bass lines took over completely. Even though the main instrumentals took a straightforward rock direction, I wanted to maintain a cinematic feeling to it which is why I avoided rock-oriented drums and repeated choruses. I also feel that Stikman's abstract beats and ambience really added a lot to this new vision for the song.
