Why remix this song?


I was going through my weekly search for songs to DJ when I first stumbled upon this Bearcub song.

The weird rhythm and sounds gave me huge Radiohead vibes. At first, I wanted to use sound manipulation to create an original song using a sample from Underwaterfall.


However, as the song grew to completion it sounded too similar to the original Bearcub song. I decided to call it a remix.

In my remix, I use a sample of a firearm being cocked. Shortly after finish the first draft, the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL occurred.

This tragedy kind of fucked me up a bit, and inspired me to revisit and keep working on what ended up becoming the final version of this remix.

It starts cool and placid, slowly building up to a heavy and dark climax. A composition to me that resembles how an actual school shooting would take place emotionally.
