I would love to make a dance mix of Since I left You (title track) and I have all the samples from The Recipe, plus others from YouTube. But all I have is GarageBand which isn't exactly brilliant for remixing.

I would love to hear The Found Sound Orchestra do a version of SILY, or maybe Radio, because they have gone a long way towards filling the void where the second Avalanches album should be, and are totally on the same page.

You have the recipe? I have looked everywhere for that, can you send a copy to me or at least a download link?

Thanks for that, Janiz. Beat me to it! Does that mean we can start remixing?

There is a channel on YouTube which plays loads of clean samples from the album, and tells you where they're from if you want to get the songs themselves, so I guess it's open season....

I ticked 'bullshit', sorry!

I have heard a few remix albums and they're generally rubbish. If talented people are going to spend time and effort on avalanches influenced music, I'd much rather they found their own samples :wink:

Ok, that's understandable. I keep going back to The Found Sound Orchestra who are great at this kind of thing, and quite a few of our members are remixers or DJs on this forum. Of course they are - it's The Avalanches forum! Goes with the territory.

We have Coconut Slaying and Drix, and me. I've remixed The Flaming Lips (adding guitar, backing vocals and flute)...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4T_x_75A4yw

And I did the Goldfrapp/This Mortal Coil mashup Black Siren (under the name Devious Corporation)...

http://markjwallis.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/black-siren-its-a-mashup/

Both of these are just me messing around as an amateur

I'm going to have a crack at Since I Left You, but GarageBand is crap for this kind of thing. Nobody hold their breath! :|

Great choice! 8)
I have added it to first post.
I believe you will manage it with Garage Band, if not - consider downloading free trials of more remix friendly applications (like ACID, Ableton...) ;)

What about deadline: 1st of June?
Will 2 months be enough?

However, we can always adjust the deadline ;)

do we need to call which one we want to have a stab at?

better to just do whichever one(s) you think you can make work rather than not at all just cos someone else called Electricity.

Yes, you can still choose whatever song you want.

I downloaded Ableton and just sat staring at it for days.

After bursting into tears I got onto some YouTube tutorials and I've managed to load drums/flute/organ! I'm going for a similar introduction to the title track, but with a different setting (ie not a beach bar) and the missing samples might have to be recreated from scratch in GarageBand. Going for a slightly more lively style....

My demo software says I have 20 days left. There's a deadline for you.
:shock:

another good program is fl studio, you can download the demo for free on their website but the catch is, is that you can't save so you would just have to keep the program open until you finished whatever you were working on. I would suggest this more for a desktop because laptops have battery life. It's annoying but the upside is im pretty sure the trial doesn't run out so it would give you more time.
