Ah! Been waiting for a Habi / DB collab... and here it is !  :)

This is a really interesting combination, guys. Folk on acid.  ;D
I'm surprised how well the acoustic guitar fits in with the drum beat and the synths !

Like the continuous up and down of the arrangement a lot.
Some nice and calm sections, and then the really catchy chorus - I love the bass line of the chorus in the 2nd version! So much energy without overcrowding the mix.

The 2nd version sounds a lot more energetic anyway. The higher tempo was unexpected at first, but works really well.
The only downside, there's a couple of phrases of the sped up vocals that sound a bit too 'digital' and FX heavy for my taste.

But really a super cool arrangement!
So many different sounds and... synths? Is it all synths, or samples?
There's some elements in the mix that I couldn't even guess what they are or how you got them to sound this way.
Like that 'electrified' hi-hat at 1:14... Small detail, but it sounds fantastic. How did you get that?  :D
And then those pitch shifted vocals towards the end... so cool!

A collab the Kitchen world has been waiting for! Nice job, you two :)

Ha Michael, thanks for all these questions  ;D ;D ;D

i lbelieve Stylus would call them quest-onionszzz

the strings are synths, so midi notes, and string sounds from cakewalk
part of the bass is synths and midi notes (also from cake walk) but also a bass sample groove pitched up asnd down togehter with that  ;D ;D ;D ;D

the hiatts is a simple sample
and much of the high stuff (towards the end, a bit flute sounding) is deformed pitched up habi vocal chord bits

that "too digital" sounding vocals is of course my bad skills of getting vocals mixed right and in the end putting on too much fxs, but i must say it also my (bad) taste for liking that, and that make it difficult to not do that, but i really must restrain myself...I MUST restrain myself.....i must RESTRAIN myself.... i must...(perhaps i should ask dr. Stylus for medication for this)


because Habi really sung this track (and some harmony vocal lines) excellently, i think

but new mix coming soon, but it will be rather more mixed up and dance than less...mhh
me, myself, and Pie

What a mad mix - sounds like a futuristic hoedown. Works well for me. I like the changes in pace. If i could change one thing it would be to make that kick really thump when it comes in around 3.30 - make it really foot stomping/head nodding.

Good work DB.
