TIme Machine Single from Rooted and RIsing Secret Mixter

Spinningmetkaba TIme Machine Single CoverTime Machine is the remix I produced for the Rooted and Rising Secret Mixter.  My assignment this time was Scomber and I found his stems from a 2009 spoken word upload that became the muse for this retro dance track that is bare naked, just like the lyrics suggest.

I haven't been remixing lately as I've been concentrating on releasing singles of original music.  You can find all that by visiting Jason Brock Music.  This was a fun side project that I hope gets you in the mood for some uplifting movement and connecting with your humanity.  

Here's to connecting to each other through music in the space time continuum!  

Cheers,

I'm Just Tired Remix Receives Ed Pick


My contribution to the Waiting remix event was an original song "I'm Just Tired" which was remixed for an Ed Pick by Stefan Kartenberg.

Get all the details here.

I’m Just Tired
Lyrics

I’m not waiting, I’m just tired
Tired of the laughter and the pain
Tired of the sunshine and the rain
I think I’ll go to bed now
And pretend it’s all a game
Where nothing stays the same

Lay down on my soft pillow When I’m curled up in my blanket
And listen to my favorite songs, Feelin where I belong
And a dream a dream that carries on and on and on...

Grateful Dead Influenced Remix

 


This remix features Joe Bone's lyrics and lead vocals.  I played "the Grateful Dead" which was really a great trip down memory lane.  Jerry is a huge influence on my playing as well as all the players in the band.  I didn't realize how infused their style was in my psyche until I started recording this.  If you're a dead head, you know where this song comes from.

Joe Bone is a ccMixter artist and uploaded his vocals to the Time Of Terror remix event.  As soon as I heard the chorus, I imagined the last line being "We Are The Dead Heads" and from there everything fell into place as if Jerry was being channeled somehow.  Even if it's all in my head, it was still a great time jamming in the headphones.  

This song lifts my spirits and I hope it does you the same.  We're all going to the great gig in the sky someday.  Until then, jam on!

NOW AVAILABLE:  Spotify LInk

Lyrics (by Panu)

i’m not sleeping very well
My concentration is gone to hell
i’ve fallen under some ancient spell
Must be the gypsy in you

if you’re not looking for a game of chance
Or the easy passion of a quick romance
aAbrand new partner for the same old dance
Then i’ve got a deal for you

When it’s time to pick up the pieces of your latest broken down love affair
Somehow inside you know
You don’t need permission and you owe it to your heart
Let’s fall together and just let go

Be my lover, be my liar
Hold my ego to the fire
If there’s a chance to be your heart’s desire
That’s all i want to do

Sleeperspaceborn's Remix of Shine is A Hard Rock Gem

Jason Brock Shine Sleeperspaceborn Remix


                      

Sleeperspaceborn's remix "Way To Love" features the vocal source tracks from a recent vocal upload of mine and was awarded an Editorial Pick for its powerful hard rock feel and production.   Here's what that review says about the track:

"This powerful, exciting hard rock remix by sleeperspaceborn takes Spinningmerkaba’s inspiring vocals and pushes them to 11! ROCK ON." -Kara Square

Sleeperspaceborn is the alias of Andrew Nissley, who releases original music as Vetra Miga.  You can discover more of his work by visiting his website.

Vetra Miga


The vocals featured in this remix were uploaded for the Break The Silence music event held by ccMixter.org and are from the original track "Shine" which is released on Jason Brock's music channels.  

These two versions of the same song are like sister galaxys in the universe of independent rock.  May we all shine on!
