Excel Monkey / In-Tension (gajoga flip 02)

Caustic Song file (optional): 

this is basically a fixed-up version of my original flip made for I N T E R I M / 0 2. the whole mix is brighter and instead of the half-time coda, there's a stripped-back bass-heavy vibe closing things off. if you listened to i02, you'll noticed that this track was laid under Disclosure's flip of Pharrell's "Frontin,'" making for an unlikely mashup that I think works really well. 

i'm gonna delete the original version in a few days because I don't think it's as great, but i'm leaving it up for now in case any of you want to check it out. hope you dig the new one!

An amazing remix of probably

An amazing remix of probably the best recieved track I've made in the last 12 months - I love the minimal house beats with that crunchy clap and sharp hats. You've got a great affinity for slow(er) tempos and it gives the whole thing a dreamy vibe (I get 121 BPM if I tap it out without checking the file).

Only comment would be that bass is too overpowering, especially in the first half where it it overpowers the beats (the section between 01:00 and 02:00 where the kick is pushed way down the mix). The kick should still be solid and central when the bass rises up (beyond my mixing / mastering skills to achieve that though) smiley

ooh ok! i'm still pretty bad

ooh ok! i'm still pretty bad at anything involving mastering, especially considering all i have are some Apple Earpods haha. i'd love to get some flatter headphones but i don't want to spend the money lol. and thanks dude; i really like working in that tempo range. i have a few tracks in the 140 range but i'm comfortable at like 110-130
