Chelsea Wolfe Remix
I first heard Apokalypsis eyes closed. I felt inspired to create a Chelsea Wolfe remix. For some people Chelsea Wolfe is about the feeling and lyricism and the emotions. While that is part of it. For me, it was all about the textures and layers of the guitars and all the music in unison.
One of my favourite aspects of the track “Demons” was the vocals. I wanted to remix Chelsea Wolfe’s Demons as a study. I love the effects on that vocal. It has such a resonant vocal slapback effect. It’s very a neat sound.
I wanted to emulate the textures of that album while reinterpreting the structure. So I gave it my own twist. I’ve done many remixes before and this one is another I was feeling. It was incredibly fun to do!
I extrapolated the chords from the track and made my rendition on piano. I connect the chords that work and adjust the levels and prepare it to be low to mid volume range. I used a closed Grand Piano. I determined how the chords should go and everything.
The bass that I used is very low, resonant and plugged, jammed and overdriven. I used a lot of Saturation, with the Softube Saturation plugin. Saturation Plugins really help in shaping the transient. So it changes the thickness and the sound becomes gritty and smashes ahead of the drums. It has three settings, Keep low, Neutral, Keep High. Naturally, I have everything overloaded with saturation. The little light flashed to hint me it’s excessive, but I push it just slightly over the yellow light.
I did lay my vocals and it is laid in the second part of the track. I recorded it all on a separate project file.In another project I added A couple of extra vocals, effects that I felt was needed for some final seasoning. The final part is the climax and I just wanted all the Demons come out and annihilated the listener with rhythm, thickness and a hypnotic, tribal groove. Here is the remix I made.
