For my peer remix, I chose Hope’s first Loop Song. I liked it for it’s chill feel, and thought I could add more to it to help set more of a beat to it.
When the pan flutes come in, I wanted to add extra percussion to it to really add to the groove. There are some high hats and claps going on in the original song, but I think adding a drum loop with bass drum hits helped. I used the Drums-Rock 8ths and sticks as the first new layer to the pan flute part.
When I was first listening to it for the remix, I personally wanted to hear more beats and melody before the breakdown. So I repeated another section of the first theme before the breakdown because I thought the extra time with full sound would make the breakdown a little more effective. For the repeated section, I wanted to try to flesh it out a bit more by adding the Beat-808 Deep Electro 1 loop, which had both high and low timbres to add to the section.
I spliced and rearranged some of the themes for after the breakdown and took out the guitar part–mainly because I feel like it wasn’t working with where I was going with the remix. One last addition I made towards the end was the SFX EDM Build-Up Snare 9 to add a little nice chromatic transition and to add a little difference to it.
