This one is a kind of megamix I made last year. It took me quite a long time to make it as good as possible. The main thing is a HFE/BeautifulDay/BreakFree(keys) hybrid track with many Queen bits attached here and there: Track 13, KYA, Bites The Dust, One Vision, Now I'm Here, Hammer To Fall, Made In Heaven, IWTBF (some percussions samples). It's funny how those parts fit to Heaven For Everyone, of course in selected spots :-)

Nicely put together, Piotre. Personally, I don't tend to go for these sorts of things, as I find it a little frustrating that you never get to hear more than a few seconds of the complete song, but I fully understand what you've gone for, and I think you've done it to good effect, for the most part.

There are a couple of bits that I felt didn't work wonderfully well, and the main one is at 4:45, where the time compression (speeding up) can clearly be heard. Also, the pitch drop of the 'Now I'm Here' parts is quite pronounced, and sounds a little odd at first.

I love the One Vision part, though, and overall, I think this is technically a very good piece of work. At least you have tried to create something different, rather then just another stems mix, so well done for that!


Remember to deliver with the speed of light

A little bit of love and joy

Thanks LF. Glad you like it. This remix is probably the most experimental one I have ever made ;-) Many people liked it so I decided to put/expose it here. To be honest, the original intention was to create it for myself as a kind of... let's say 'private mix' but after couple of listenings I decided to add it to the last year batch of remixes as I found it quite interesting.

I have to agree. But sometimes we have to choose between the lesser of two evils. In this case: higher pitch of the backing track or lower pitch of the vocals. Bisides there were lots of other samples and it was very hard to adjust them individually, however I'm quite satisfied with the effect.

I hope the vocals of NiH in this mix don't sound like one of the version of Goin' Back with 'spooky' Freddie ;-)
