Neon Tiki (Futchlogic Remix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I was so impressed with this song that I had to try to do a remix of it ( http://www.macjams.com/song/30783 ). At first I completly transformed the song by cutting a lot of parts and changing the tempo and melody. I decided to simply add to the jam with thicker drums and a few scratches. I tried my best to stay within the same spirit of the original and to simply add a small impression of myself and this is what I've come up with. I hope I did this song justice.

Lyrics
been a long time comin', no doubt, can't wait no longer, give me tiki
I've searched this world throughout for a thing that gets me wild and freaky
to the desert, to the oceans, it's a myth that stalks my head at night
in the limestone, beneath the lava, maybe I'll get lucky, huh?

on every street in every town, standing on a corner, lookin' for a bit of the light
they say, "hey man, get on with your life", but I can't relent the search for neon tiki
in the city, out in the country, in a book or an egg or a voodoo doll
dripping sweet from a poison grapevine or a message on the wall

I'm looking for a neon tiki (you will never find this tiki)
auwe-ah, yes I will

it came to me in a dream, now I find I gotta have it or I think I'm gonna forfeit my mind
in the words of a muse or the eyes of an angel, a tear from a painter's brush
it's the whim and the joy and the glee, it turns my brain to mush
to the racetrack, down in the subway, upon a jet leaving Tuesday night
without a care for the cost or the consequence, I'm there in coach, watching movies in flight
I hate flying

I'm looking for a neon tiki (you will never find this tiki)
auwe-ah, yes I will

I wish I had a way to show you
what it's like, why it's here, where it hangs, what it sees, how it lives
how it breathes, where it grows, how it glows, watch it dance and know why I need it

I LOVE IT!
You have totally plussed this song, man - what a great job! And you're doing that live on turntables? Holy Crap - I need to hire you when we do this song live - that is WICKED! Nice choices all around - the guy, "my dreams become reality" - I mean, that got me laughing and smiling - your treatment made the song brand new again, and that is no small feat, it's been around awhile! The digital snare is a little high on the frequency range, it could stand to be tempered a bit. But the bass kicks and other beats you added - damn - super-solid. The scratching and other bits are just awesome. I'm glad you took to this tune and decided to to do this - I'm going to get a huge kick out of playing this version for people. You're a great turntablist and imaginative, with a fantastic spirit. You really did a great job with this track. BIG-ass kudos!

That is...I meant to say
MY DREAMS ARE VICTORY!!!

I am listening to this over and over again - I can't get over that first verse - the pause, echo, scratching....oh yeah, we gotta work together again sometime, this is sweet!

Thank you, thank you, thank you
I am very, very glad you enjoyed the small peice of myself that I attempted to integrate into this song. I see what you mean about that snare. It does seem to be a little loud.
I am definately looking forward to us working together sometime in the future. Thank you for the opportunity and the appreciation of what I've done to your song.

Club Tiki
I guess that would put a new twist to a neon Tiki outside of a beach club. Sometimes following your deams can lead to the wrong place (or maybe the right). This remix kinda acts as a everyone's tiki is different vibe. Thanks for the comparison (perspective) and thank you for the listen.

thanks
I liked the original and wanted to add some thump to the drums. Im really big on bass and that was the first thing I did on my second attempt to remix the remix of this song (did that make any sense?).

Thanks for stopping by and having a listen.

cool
My only production add-on was the drums and the cuts. Most of the credit has to go to dreadmon for the original song. He did a great job and I just tried to compliment it.

Thanks for the comment and for enjoying the music.

Most of the credit (of course) goes to Bing for making such an inspiring song. A remix can only be as good as the original.

It may still need a little work, but I believe the concept of what I'm trying to achieve is working (so far).

much appreciated
Everytime I heard this song originally I kept hearing a cut on it. Even when It would get stuck in my head, I could hear the cuts. I had to do something about it or go mad with what "could have been."
