About this Song

What? WHY “FIREFLIES”, DUDE??
Easy, bro! You will understand.

First of all, remixing "Lucid Dream" was surreal to me. Before I set out to create the arrangements, I sought to research the history of this music and the main focus of the lyrics, and I fell in love as soon as I saw something that perhaps not everyone saw in it: the motivation given to the listener to make him believe in their own dreams. Soon I kept the focus on this theme and tried to add in the arrangements and edit some things that for me were of extreme relevance to further intensify this motivational sense. And that's where “Fireflies” comes in!

For me, “Fireflies” is the real proof that dreams can come true. It's my favorite song and I believe it also means a lot to Adam, since this song was played over 200 million times just on YouTube. Placing it in the middle of Lucid Dream was as if we were telling the listener, "Hey! Believe in your dreams! See where Owl City came in, do you remember that song playing on your radio almost 9 years ago? That's right man, Owl City did it and you can reach the stars too! "Haha

As for the arrangements, I mixed up a little bit of Rock and a bit of Dubstep, all in that vaporwave vibe, which is what music, cover art and the clip suggest. I decided to keep this focus on the Vaporwave, as it is one of the artistic movements that I love so much, and would give a very special touch to the aesthetics of the music. (And yes, it even has the boot sound from windows 95, which made me go back to 7 years old, to show to the listener the first time I had contact with my first PC, haha)!

I can’t fail to mention the dream part, in which I conveyed all the feeling of happiness and adrenaline that I felt when I dreamed that I was flying over my neighborhood at night when, in the same dream, I took courage, gained some impulse and GET UP TO 23KM HEIGHT! DUDE, THAT WAS WONDERFUL FOR ME! And when Adam associated the song with a dream he had, I made a point of passing all the intensity of my dream to this remix.

I started this project with the goal of making the best remix I've ever done in my life, and in the end, my life was recorded in every chord of what, now, I love to call "Lucid Dream's Remix."

You will not hear just a simple remix.
You will hear a part of me.
I hope you enjoy!

Interesting how you incorporated some of fireflies in this. Piano melody in the intro are also very nice. Think the kick is too overpowering at 0:46, maybe a different kick to the drop would have worked better there.

Tk u so much! I've never thought of putting two different kicks to sound in each separate part of the song, that's a good idea! I still need to get lighter on the compressor, it compressed the peaks too much and I lost all the transients. The song was very aggressive, but in the next few times I'll correct this. Tk u so much for the feedback bro!!

Haa thanks! I was needing a lead to fill the space between the dubstep drop and the melody drop (that part "do you believe .."). I'm glad it worked!
