Description : Time to give y'all a break from my vocals...
So, I was going through songs from years past on my laptop - there are hundreds - and came across this one that I'd nearly forgotten about, even though I love it.

There's a story that comes with it. Way back in MySpace days (yep, going back) I connected with a singer in the UK named Kymberley Kennedy, an amazing singer, just fantastic voice. She liked my tracks so we agreed to work on some tracks together. I sent her this song, and she and her boyfriend Mo, the producer, put a sample together, a minute and a half. I loved it. But then Kymmie got interest from a record company and dropped the project. So I was left with an incomplete song - only part of one of the verses and the chorus. What to do? I brought in a guitarist and extended the song to full length with a music bridge and some repetition. Had to. And this is the result.

So then last night I was checking Kym out on YouTube. She's got a bunch of videos up, with some modest success. I listened to some of them and yes, they're great, but at the same time they sound a lot like a lot of stuff out there. What attracted me to Kymmie's music in the first place was that it was raw and real, it expressed a real personality, it had a vital edge. The record-company songs don't, to me. I listened back to some of the songs - some are just samples - that Mo & Kym sent to me way back when - their stuff - and I like it much better. I googled and found some of the finished results - I like the first drafts better. So I started messing around with a couple, extending them, tweaking, just for my own personal delectation. To me, they sound freaking incredible. So I think that's an important lesson, to me anyway and maybe to all of us - watch the overproduction. Don't get too fancy. Keep it raw and real. Keep it human. Perfectly flawed is so much better than flawlessly perfect.

    Thank you, Heralbjon. I wondered about the density of the mix a little, but sounds like it's working ok. Appreciate the comment!

    Cool. Please make sure to say that the vocals are by Kimberley Kennedy, that's the most important thing. She's got a new track out and any boost would help. If it could be also mentioned that it was produced by Mo, that would be awesome as well. And thanks for your listen and kind comments!

    Yes this chick can sing. And she does it very well. Not surprised that she is working with a label.

    Nice to pull out some oldies and look up old artists huh.
    You should get royalties for a finders fee. Lol.

    Good job,

    Yeah, it's been years since I've heard her but lately I've been going back and listening to some of her older stuff, and the work she did with Grinny Grandad back in the day - I mean, it's just seriously fantastic. Just wicked wicked good stuff. She's an amazing vocalist. Anyway, thank you!

Description : **** UPDATED ****
After reading some comment, i've experienced some improvement to the track, trying keeping the original idea in my mind. So, after two months, these are the changes: better balancing of sounds, more fatty kicks, less redundancy of the reverberations, uplifted formant bass. Featuring Stepa K.
