I love the bouncy, happy, summer feel that this track has and I hope that you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed remixing it! I wanted to give this track an old-school reggae/ska vibe and used lots of vintage gear plug-ins to help achieve this. I wanted to try and capture the magic of some of my heroes like Toots and the Maytals, Jacob Miller and Inner Circle, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, The Slickers and The Ethiopians amongst many others. I passed all the tracks through an emulation of the very first Helios ‘Type 69’ console which was originally found at Island’s Basing Street Studio. It was used to record and mix some of the finest reggae classics ever produced. In addition I ran everything out through a Studer A-800 tape machine and also used a Roland RE-201 Space Echo for some vintage echo and reverb. Finally, I ran it out to an Ampex ATR-102 after going through a Shadow Hills Compressor and a Manley Massive Passive EQ. I’ve spent a lot of time in Jamaica over the years and hope that I have managed to capture some of that magic that I feel when I am there. Peace!
