About The Cold Cut...

The musings of a teenage audiophile. Indie, Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, Dance, Dubstep, Garage, Metal... music crosses all boundaries. The Cold Cut is devoted to giving you a taste of what's going on in music at the moment.

About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

My First Remix...

Coldplay- Violet Hill (Cold Cut Remix) (Link 2)

Just thought I would share something with you: I was messing around with the new Coldplay single earlier on Garage Band, and my doodling turned into a remix of sorts. It's just about good enough to post (aka not totally rubbish), so please leave a comment with your thoughts.

Music is, in my opinion at least, designed to be open to interpretation. Therefore I decided to try my hand at the old remixing, and I can assure you, it's a lot harder than it seems. I wasn't a huge fan of this single when it was released, but it's a definite grower. In my remix I hope I have brought out some of the more important aspects of the song: its maritime connection, a little more power in the lower end of the spectrum- bass in particular. There are a couple of cool tricks that I picked up today- inversion, reversing etc.- which have found their way into the remix.

Anyway, I have to say I really enjoyed the process- having a Mac is brilliant, but the utility is wasted if you don't learn how to fully use the programs. This remix has pretty much taught me how to use Garage Band in a few hours. I hope you enjoy it, and leave comments- I'll be able to put your tips into practice next time I decide to remix a song.

    I think is pretty good for a first attempt and definitely adds something to the original.

    Be sure to check out the Nikolai Levey remix too which is pretty awesome!!!

    just throwing some reverb, flanger, and phase on a song doesn't really make it a remix...maybe next time do a little cutting and pasting, throw some personal style on there!

    im sure the time will come when the acapella will be found, remix it then...i think everyone should leave the song alone for now. Nikolai Levey's remix is garbage, and with all do respect i don't see much light for this one either

    Cold Cut?! this isn't Cold Cut! Fraudulant use of his name.

    I think Nikolai Levey is one of the great geniuses of our time. His Coldplay remixes reveal someone who is clearly sensitive to the artists' original intent but brash enough to inject his playful and warped sensibilities in without drastically altering the track.

    Thanks for all your comments- as I said in my follow up post, I will be sure to take your advice next time I remix a track.

    iguanuapunk, there is a slight difference. I am aware that using the title 'Cold Cut' would be copyright infringement, but if you look at the track title, it is called 'the cold cut', which is different. I hope this answers things for you. Also, Cold Cut is two people, not a 'he'. Peace.

    Heard nikolai levey's version- pretty nice, but I'm not too sure about speeding it up that much. The reverb is nice...

    To be a good human being is to have a philanthropic of openness to the world, an skill to trusteeship aleatory things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptionally circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty about the condition of the righteous life: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a sparkler, something somewhat fragile, but whose very precise beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
