Here 'tis, friends! My submission for the #GravitasRecordings / #GravitasCreate #CloZee #Harmony #Remix contest.

This one was super fun. I'm not usually prone to remixes, but the opportunity to de- and re- construct CloZee's music (whom I'm a tremendous fan of) was far too tantalizing to pass up. Between the two possible sets of stems (Secret Place and Harmony), the latter spoke to me the most, especially with the myriad of mellifluous layers (the vocal harmonies, noises, FX, etc) that do wonders to fill in the spaces behind the main instruments (drums, pitched vocals, mid-basses) that occupy the forefront, but kind of go unheard in their own right. It was my intention to take those ear-catching elements, and bring them out into the spotlight, giving them each their own moment to shine before they once again coalesced together as one final epic number that is the slightly altered take on the original drop. Further adding texture to the finale are warped/resampled glitchy snippets borrowed from other sections of the original, hovering over a stamped-down solid bedtrack of heavy downtuned guitars (as per #Alyag tradition, ha). Really jazzed on how this tune turned out, and I hope it serves as a worthy tribute to the incredible artist that has time and again inspired myself and mine to wiggle and groove the countless times we've had the pleasure of seeing her live.
Conjured via #Ableton, and a combination of #xFer #Serum, #CamelAudio #Alchemy, #SlateDigital, #UniversalAudio, and stock #AbletonLive plug-ins... along with my pointy hot-pink #ESPGuitars Alexi-600LE, hah.
