I didn't get the Prince reference initially.

I was thinking more along the lines of "....haze, all in my...."
Ah, no not purple haze.

TBH, the track has no references or nods towards the Prince track; I just liked the play on words. I’m sure it’s been done a zillion times before me though.

As Forgotten said this genre is normally not my thing but I enjoyed your work on this. It has energy that has me feeling like I should get up from my computer and dance... Also, it maintains interest with all the additions. Well done!

Thanks man! Great feedback that you still felt the urge to get up despite the genre not being your thing.

Bumping this for additional feedback before I pull it down over the weekend to remix.

Ah, no not purple haze.

a lot of people dont realise "purple haze" is about prince.
he was so amazing, knowledge of him leaked throughout time.
hendrix took just the right amount of lsd one day, to tap in to the akeshic records, and actually meet and jam with an astral prince.
its all in the sleeve notes :)

Nice track. I would make the kick a little punchier, but thats just personal taste. One thing I feel might add to the track is to make use of the stereo field a bit more and give a more 3D impression. Did you use the Haas effect on any sounds? Or something like Precedence from 2C-audio. I think you could probably just pick one or two sounds you already have and position them (instead of adding additional sounds).

I was reading this thinking it doesn't sound right, surely they were years apart. I even took to Google before it dawned on me :dog:

Thanks for the listen :tu:

The kick and bass were the priority with the remixing and I think I've nailed them now. They certainly punch as hard as my reference track.

Re the stereo positioning that indeed was another item on the list of improvements but I was mainly considering panning rather than Haas. I have however since purchased KHs Haas to do just this so thanks for the tip 8) Precedence is on my list of plugins to acquire but haven't grabbed it yet (too many post Christmas bills :cry: )

Hopefully the new version will be up mid week.
