Deep unofficial remix iv done of Warpaint - Stars is now up for download. Bit of a niche sound but I love the record and wanted to do something with it, hopefully keeping some of the original vibe in tact without using a great deal of the original.

Listen / download below:

Equally cheeky video edit as well...

You aint seen me right....

I know no one seems to pay much attention to random nobodies mixes on here. Get your violins out etc. But here is a set of mine from Egg where I warmed up the garden recently. Quite a varied track list. New material, classics, chill out through to dancefloor stuff. Hopefully it makes some sort of sense over the 2 hours.

https://soundcloud.com/garyoptim/gary-o … 3-apr-2013

Tracks and remixes from the likes of Pier Bucci, Acid Pauli, Chymera, DJ Koze, Todd Terje, Agoria, Pachanga Boys, Bonobo, Ripperton, Four Tet etc etc. If you want the full tracklist let me know.

Weighs in at a healthy 2 hours 13 mins. High quality download.

My latest deep house track out now.

Label blurb...

For Evo Music's third release they welcome on-board Gary Optim with his weighty debut production "Lucem".
Remixes come courtesy from label owners Andy Lemac and Stride with both tracks being delivered at different ends of the musical spectrum whilst still sustaining the depth of the original in this well rounded package.

It is accomplished. The music world witnesses the birth of the 10th release on Enough!

Gary Optim's EP "SEED" is a musical highlight. Gary's orginal track is a wonderful bath of sound, being authentic and surprising. Impulsive, oriental melodies and grooving percussive elements tell their own story.

This EP is accompanied by the producers Wigbert and George P. Both artists have put their talent as well as their hearts and souls into the remixes.

Gary Optim - Seed (Wigbert Remix)...
This playful remix, refined to its smallest details, will give anybody goosebumps. Perfectly arranged sound elements and an impressive bassline lend the remix an unmistakable signature. A true delight.

Gary Optim - Seed (George P Black Market Remix)...
The remix of George P.'s simply feels good. With an impulsive bass, it is powerful, rolling and deeply alluring. Clear accents make this EP a spellbinding experience and thus a virtual pearl.

Hi everyone. Here is my effort for the Nick Curly remix competition over on Beatport. I dont really expect cecille to be up for signing it but I like working to a tight deadline sometimes just so I get something finished! And was fun working on it.

Style wise its got a long intro on it its something I might like to open a set with. Lots of organic percussion, minimal use of the vocal... have a listen if you have a sec anyway and let me know what you think...

Video for Lost http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Llarj19QlyQ
Video for Spell Therapy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cFpc3dQ9QM

Electric Sheep Recordings end 2011 with two exceptionally gifted producers new to the label, Mike Walken and Gary Optim. These two close friends have submitted a solo track each plus a collaborative track, each having it's own unique flavour, but all three symbiotic of one another.

Track one 'Lost' sees the pair hook up to deliver a slick and sophisticated contemporary house track. Smooth synths, tight percussion and a sleazy bassline.

Gary Optim's solo offering 'Spell Therapy' is an evocative piece of modern machine soul. Lush pianos intersperse with subliminal vox refrains, primitive instrumentation and tribal drums.

Mike Walken's equally smooth 'Back Off The Wagon' could be looked upon as a blueprint for 21st century deep house.

New deep house bootleg of Timbaland ft Nelly Furtado on vocals. Still in progress... I'm going to mull this over for a couple of weeks and tweak it a bit before getting it professionally mastered and releasing a free download on my page. Follow me on Soundcloud for updates smile

Any feedback at this stage is appreciated as im still working on it

http://soundcloud.com/garyoptim/gary-optim-hurt-nobody

Iv just uploaded my latest deep house track for feedback and critique...

'Gary Optim - Make Good'

http://www.soundcloud.com/garyoptim/gar … -make-good

Its deep, laid back 115 BPM but still with a bit of punch for the dancefloor once it gets going. Big house claps and hats etc and a punchy bassline. Let me know what you reckon smile

Cheers very much. Yeah I can see exactly where you are coming from now that you mention it. Good point indeed

cheers for the feedback smile

http://soundcloud.com/garyoptim/gary

New track on the go here. Will probably do a little more to this id say 90% done though. Opinions welcomed as ever and all critique is appreciated

DEEP 115 bpm with some middle eastern vibes... Little bit Guy Gerber in places

Dunno who would play this one to be honest. Is a bit of a niche market. Quite Dixon perhaps. Lots of real instrumentation but big synths too. Quite an epic feel to it but very understated as well. Not a scooby... In a nutshell as iv described on my page... 115 BPM, 4/4 beat, moody as f*ck. A peak time club banger this is definitely not...

Bit of a drunken haphazard set from Prehab this weekend. Lots of classics and a few slightly random numbers to keep you on your one toe. Featuring tracks from Daft Punk, Marshall Jefferson, Breakwater, Chez Damier, Son Of Raw, DJ Sneak, Deetron... Full tracklist in the description on my soundcloud

Cheeky summer mix of some festival type stuff. With a classic theme running through as they don’t make em like that anymore etc. Tracklist includes some MJ, Grace Jones, Prince, Shades Of Rhythm, some Disco / Italo Disco, a fair few Greg Wilson and Wolf + Lamb bootlegs.... You get the picture. Take it wink

after some early feedback, rate / slate etc. worth cracking on with do you think? only took an hour or so. Drums are very bare just got a groove on the bassline and the synth line really. All opinions welcome smile
