    OK, a re-working of a track i had a clip up of a few months ago, i've added the accappella of Erykah Badu's Honey as an interesting mash-up inspired by blu mar ten's remix of you got me.. Hope ur all feelin this :)
    Got the original with no lyrics at 176 and 165 BPM! :)

    Give me ur opinions etc good or bad!

    Thanks
    Mike

    Much prefer the slower version, would like to hear vocals in that one. The reverses work well. The piano and the sub sound good. Pretty nice tune.
    For me the faster version sounds like a slow version sped up, rather than a faster tune, if you get me.

    don't forget the first one isn't a remix, just a mash-up!

    Cheers tho :p

    your drums are a bit weak, and vocal si very "in the face!",but with better mixdown, it will rock!

    Try taking them down by compressing them
