Be As One (New Mondo Mix) – Tuff n Mello

Remixed by New Mondo
Transport Recordings
Released April 2007

A remix of Tuff and Mello which is the duo of Nathan G and Rudy from Australia. This remix that I did with DJ MFR during our New Mondo period was inspired by a remix of a Miguel Migs track that MFR had brought to the studio. The bass sound is definitely a sound that is associated with Migs, although we did put in our own little touches, such as the timbale roll (an MFR thing), while I threw in the bass bendy bits. Listen out for the middle section of the remix which goes into a whole other rhythm.

Breezin

Written and Produced by Vincent Kwok
Kapa Music
Released April 2012

A bouncy little tune I put together for the Nova Planet compilation on Kapa Musicfor my friend DJ Nova from Greece. I think this is probably one of the happiest sounding things I’d done in a while. You can imagine driving down the highway with the wind in your hair in your little red convertible….

I did throw that weird vocal sample into it though…..:P

Wave of Love – D-Reflection feat Christa

Remixed by Vincent Kwok
Adaptation Music
Released September 2010

I was listening to a lot of progressive/pop dance music (what today is called EDM) and when the opportunity came to remix this track, I decided to try and do something completely different from what would normally be expected of me.  I really like the breathiness of the vocals from Christa.

Better Place – Random Soul ft Kristen Pearson

Remixed by Vincent Kwok
Barcoda Recordings
Released August 2009

Now, this is one of my favourite remixes. Combining my new found interest in tech and combining it with funky basslines over an uplifting vocal, these make a great combination. If you listen closely, there is no bass line in the first verse at all (toying with the audience, I call it), and then I let the moogish bass come in. Even then, I stay in one chord when the chorus comes in, and just when you can’t handle it anymore, I allow the chord change. The only thing I would change if I were to redo this is one of the loops that I used for the beats. It’s a bit too recognisable.

I remember playing this live at the Tramp Bar in Melbourne during the early morning hours. This was magic!

U Got The Love – New Mondo & Morrisson

Produced by New Mondo
Ovation Music
Released June 2009

This was a track that was produced with DJ MFR during our New Mondo days.  With vocals (and lyrics) from Morrisson who is one of our regulars, we ended up with this driving, soulful track that Morrisson has performed live on many occasions to great response.  There’s a nice little guitar wakka-wakka thing going on that I think gives it that little bit of a rhythm chunk.  Also, if you listen closely, there’s a hint of an organ that  plays a rhythmic/melodic part.

Something jazzy I originally did in 2002 on my Roland XV-5080.  The original version ended up on a Stereo Sushi compilation.  This is an updated mix with better instrumentation and a much better instrument balance, released on Adaptation out of Manchester.  It also includes an incredible mix from my good friend Julius Papp.
