As you’ll notice in Flex Vector’s remix, the vocals are sped up for a majority of the song. We often receive remixes where the producer changes the tempo of the vocals in order to fit them to the tempo of a beat they’ve already pre-made. However, the special attention that Flex Vector gives to the pacing, change-ups, and reconstruction of the entire track prove that the changes to vocal tempo were not forced. They were deliberate. 3/4 of the way into the remix, when the vocal tempo switches from double time to half time, you fully realize the genius at play.
Not only do vocal tempo changes normally turn us off, but this style of beat is not something we’d typically be into. However, when all is said and done, our love of this remix and our respect for its craftsmanship have pushed it above all others.
CONGRATULATIONS, FLEX VECTOR! We will be seeing you this Sunday for the Portland, ME date of the “Church of Love & Ruin” Tour! This tour begins TOMORROW in NYC. Get all details on the tour at www.BDolan.net
