In 2013 I wrote and recorded a song called Please Don’t Make Me Cry.
It was a little experiment to see if I could write a “Bond” song.
Once it was done I did a second experiment; I wanted to create a montage video of Bond movies to put it to.
I was really happy with the result and uploaded it to YouTube in December 2013.
And then I more or less forgot about it.
A few weeks ago someone shared it on Twitter and I had a fresh listen to it.
The first thing that struck me was how much improved my mixing skills have become since then!
Certainly, I’m not up to professional standard yet, but I knew I could do a lot better job than the flat, thin and narrow sounding mix I did back in 2013.
So I set myself a challenge; could I remix the song to make it sound much better in one evening?
Well, I certainly achieved the first part of the challenge!
As for the second, well, I leave you to decide.. 😉
Below is my 2016 remix and you can listen to the original 2013 mix here on YouTube.
Did I succeed?! I’d LOVE to know what you think in the comments section at the bottom of this page! And please do SHARE this video if you dig it 🙂
