I treated my remix as if I was making an alt version of "New York City", just like the 3 versions available in "Cinematic".
That means I took inspiration from a few Owl City songs to make this remix, such as:
- The simplistic instrumentation of "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" with the distorted E-piano leading the song & an electric guitar part.
- The Stomp - ish drums from "Corduroy Road" & "The Endurance" albums under Adam Young's Scores.
- The generally oldschool synth approach from "Cinematic" (like in "Madeline Island", "House Wren" & "Winners Never Quit").
Due to this approach, some parts of the remix are played by me on an old e-piano with various presets, such as the e-piano in the choruses, the high e- piano in the bridge before the final chorus and the brass instruments in the final chorus.
I had a lot of fun making this version of "New York City", hope you'll like it ;)
