Pet Shop Boys - Do I Have To? (Fairymatic Trippytale mix)

#1 Post by nathanjay » Fri 28 Sep 2018, 2:43 pm

Hello. After 29 years of trying to remix Do I Have To? and it sounding crap, I finally turned a corner by doing it in the style of Jam & Spoons Trippomatic Fairytale mix of Young Offender.

It's over ten minutes long, but it doesn't get boring (I think it's too short :D ) I'd love to know what PSB fans think of it.

Thanks

Nathan

Really good. Could maybe use a bit more low end but I'm listening on tinny speakers. Would like to hear other PSB tracks in this style, maybe an entire album. Is there somewhere we can get a download of this?
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

Sir, I doff my cap in your direction - this is excellent. Well done! Would love a download.

it's very good....it's crying out for an intermittent Photek style amen break imo though...

Interesting that Photek does the music for the TV show, "How to Get Away with Murder"!

I enjoy it but the quality hasn't kept up since the first season.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Here's a 7 day link for the MP3.

I hope to have a remix of Sound Of The Atom Splitting eventually. It's complete in my head, but I've done no actual work on it yet :D
