Our second 40th bday double-mixpost feature from OceansAndrew (Andrew Luers) is an EDM take on DKC2's iconic "Stickerbush Symphony" that's titled with its most common mispronounciation/misspelling. I'm sure I've been guilty several times over the years, myself. Now I can just pretend I'm referring to this mix, which was originally started for a "Make-a-Mix" live remixing/tutorial panel at a convention (MAG 2018) - very glad that Andrew went ahead and polished the strong initial concept into a full piece, as I hoped he would at the time. Undulating pads & synth filters us in to a big ole' sub bass drop before an electrified zappy beat gets going. Larry Oji writes:
"Nice fade-in of the melody followed by the drop at :28; right from the get-go, this puts a lot of personality and swagger to the presentation. I liked the beats added in at 1:05 giving a little extra oomph and making the rhythm feel different despite the tempo being the same.
Just a fun listen overall; even though the overall energy level's consistent, there are a lot of small yet constant subtle evolutions of the sounds and textures to keep this developing throughout. A textbook example of how to be melodically conservative yet overtly interpretive and personalized."
Some additional mileage/differentiation comes from the four-on-the-floor kick used towards the end, which pushes things forward. There are also additive/subtractive measures, some octave doubling, and of course production keeps a good deal of evolving motion going w/ modulaton. What's not to like? Nothing, for the panel, as Sir_NutS adds:
"I like the instrumentation on this a lot. Big sidechained synths and cool drums. Tons of re-arrangement when it comes to harmony and re-structuring of the source makes this stand out from the other stickerbush remixes I've heard."
The first version that was evaluated had a cutoff ending, which was really the only thing judges criticized. That's been resolved/revised since, and the finished product is a pulsing, toe-tapping rework of a David Wise classic! Happy birthday to Mr. Luers and major props for the double dose of great mixes!

I like the call and response of the piano and the synth. This track has a lot of energy from the get-go and then finds more in the tank at the 2 minute mark. It's a bright, zippy, full take on a classic from an always reliable mixer.
