Opiate For The Masses - Step Up (EMT Remix) by Justin Lassen published on 2011-06-26T02:05:46Z This was a remix I completed in 1999 for the band Opiate For The Masses. The band's founder liked it so much he got me my first ever weighted 88-key workstation which made a dream come true! :) It was pretty magical. He showed it to Charlie Clouser who said it was "fucking amazing". That was an honor to hear. Jim even said to me that I was "the next flood." which is an honor because that's a producer I really respect. This remix was before soft synths were mainstay, before fancy plugins and mainstream software this was all hardware and all my Roland XP30 keyboard at the time. I really enjoyed working on this remix. Everything in it was hand crafted with hardware! :) It still stands the test of time, in my ears. :) Great LYRICS: http://www.metrolyrics.com/step-up-lyrics-opiate-for-the-masses.html *I went on to do 2 EP's worth and 28 remixes for OFM from 1999-2009.
