This is an extended remix of my original song, "Hey You Robot" that I posted here in iComp back in 2008.

My old friend Tilden (who did the Distance Lab Remix) made the comment to me the other day that he was always dissapointed when the song was over... "it's one of those songs that you go oh, it's over already?" is exactly what he said.

This got me to thinking, which can be dangerous.

So, I decided to do yet another remix. This one is my birthday present to all of you.

My birthday is April 28th, so Happy Birthday to all of you from me, DJ Shadowkat!!

The robot picture I used I found via Google as usual. I thought the "steampunk" robot image was perfect for the song.

I hope you like it. This is the result of several weeks worth of work I did with the original tracks I imported from Gargageband into Logic 9.

Enjoy!!

Peace, Always!

Cool! I sense a new sub-genre here--bot music... do robots dance?
I like the driving rhythm by the drums, the slow downward slide on the electric guitar at the end of the first form, and after the break, is a little unsettling (in a good way). Did you do the robot voice with processing? What is the text, I can't quite make it out?
Happy birthday on Wednesday, significant number? Party?
Cheers,

mre

Thanks for the comments and the ratings!

I actually thought of you while I was doing the synth strings, which I beefed up from the original recording! I noticed that I was a bit sloppy in my timing on the original tracks, so I relaid them completely. This time I used more Cellos and Violas.

I did not do the robot voice, but I did treat the daylights out of it! That's a loop I found somewhere, but where exactly is hard to determine as I have downloaded so many free loops and purchased even more. (I've got about 100 gigs of loops, vst's, EXS sounds and soft synths).

I'll have to pull up the original loop to tell exactly what he says, but it's something like "Hey you robot, you can see, (something) the warnings, doo doo doo".

Wednesday will be a good day for me, I've got a new job and my wife and I plan to go out for dinner with friends and family.

Peace

Many thanks to TheShamanKing! It's always nice to see new people drop by and say something!

Misha, good to hear from you again, my friend. Many thanks for the kind words and the ratings.

Also, Thanks to everyone that have dropped in and gave my tune a listen! And I also wanted to say Thanks to the folks at iComp for putting me in the Artists' Spotlight and for this website. Without iComp so many artists like myself my have never had a voice to express ourselves and meet other artists.

Peace to you all!

I like it, but is a bit repetitive the vocoder sound. The concept is good and the mix too but I'm still amazed with Beat Minister.
Thanks for sharing shadow.

Vegetal,

Thanks for the comments and ratings on this song. I'm glad to know you are feeling better and wish you a speedy recovery!

FEAHM,

Good to hear from you again! I love the one word review and thanks for the great ratings.

This song is one of my favorites, and doing to new version was an absolute blast. An old friend asked if he could add some things to it, so I'm looking forward to hearing what his take on the song will be like!

Stay "tuned"

DJ Shadowkat

Char Artist I like that the thing keeps marching along...to its own drummer. I think it is marching out into space and beyond time. Happy belated birthday. Thank you.
