Today’s featured music is my new Remix of Anna Awe’s “Transcend” (Friday, November 12th, 2021).
Anna Awe is an American singer/songwriter, music producer, and DJ whose songs blend poetic rock/pop storytelling with the latest technology. I connected with Anna who is based in West Hollywood, CA via Instagram this Fall and we agreed upon this Remix collaboration. Anna wrote the song and lyrics which are inspired by concepts of physics and quantum mechanics.
After receiving the track stems from Anna, I worked my magic with cinematic effects, some of my own vocal accents, some Splice samples, and electric guitar.
I started playing guitar when I was 5 years old and electric guitar when I was 16, but this is the first time I have officially released a song with my guitar playing featured on it in a notable way. The way my overlapped dueling guitar riffs play off of the synths create a unique solo that gives my shivers!
When approaching the Remix, I wanted to make sure that Anna’s unique timing and vocal qualities would be carefully preserved while making the mix fun, dark, and dancey. The result is a futuristic, ethereal dance hit perfect for your Y2K warehouse party needs. This song is now available on all major music streaming platforms including Beatport.
One of the things that most attracted me to remixing Anna’s song and collaborating with her on this project was her sheer passion for her craft. Not only is Anna a prolific and talented songwriter, but she is also an NFT artist and helpful music community builder. Wherever there is something new, genuine, and truly exciting happening in the world of music, Anna is sure to be there at the forefront.
