It’s good to have choices. Jun Areia released his “house” remix of the Hyuna and Hyunseung classic. If the original is too slow or too soft, and the Epitone remix was too hard, this Areia progressive electro remix straddles the middle ground. The Areia remix #94 comes in at 128 BPM in the key of A#m. It’s not yet dj-friendly.
We’re totally digging the accordion as a replacement to the whistled melody of the original. Check out what he had to say on the release after the jump.
I’ve spent the last 6 weeks working on professional level kpop as except my arrangement for Andamiro’s new song (coming out next month), I also composed, recorded and produced another two original songs for her. They won’t be released with this single as the production hasn’t finished and had to be pushed for a later release but the experience of working in a top-range studio and having the idol at the recording room singing your melodies with you directing the whole process is…. really really hard! There were all short of difficulties mostly language problems (god knows how many new Korean adjectives I’ve learnt in order to describe singing ways). Most importantly though I found myself in an extremely competitive environment that made me push my music to new levels. I would say that in order to gain the same understandings and experience as in the last 6 weeks, I would need more than 1 year of remixes – perhaps even never. There are all shorts of people writing music and just to get the chance to get your song tried and recorded takes a lot of really hard work.
That said, this is an “overdub” remix meaning the only thing I had to work with was the original song. It used to be a really hot song back when I made the remix funding list and I somehow included it ditching my own ban from remixing songs that I don’t have clean vocal sources to work with. The result is a hybrid of the original and my own sound. Many of my older (and most successful) remixes are like that so I will let you listen and make your own view. You can hear some new sound at the intro – something you might feel you haven’t heard from me. That’s a glimpse to my 7th generation sound and it’s pretty much my new experiences put together. Since it was an overdub I couldn’t force my own sound onto it as I would like so expect more of that sound in the future.
He’s still running his fan-donated system so feel free to chip-in for the next song you want to hear in the Areia style.
