Hello and welcome to the next installment in my music journey here on Steemit. After an amazing recent collaboration with @zipporah for my track Waiting on a Rain Cloud and my version of Wish Away for @pechichemena #coverasteemian contest by @paintingangels -I’ve been in secret talks with two of the very best EDM producers here on Steemit and beyond. They are Ma.De aka @d-vine and @jeffleinwand


They have collectively and ingeniously remixed my track ‘Was It Right’ which has transformed into a beautiful dancing creature glowing with that warm summer sunshine vibe. I am so flattered and impressed by their work that I’m championing them through this post and beyond! If you would like their magic sprinkled over our music, I strongly suggest that you hook up with them.

For all you tech heads out there @sevaux and @chiefmappster – here’s what @jeffleinwand and @d-vine magically did to my track.

  • Sent guitar & vocal through the Neve 1073 preamp and 1176 compressor.
  • Drums from the DSI Tempest .
  • Pad from the Roland Alpha Juno 2 through Eventide H9.
  • Snare with reverb from an old Dynacord reverb unit.
  • Arp sequence is from the DSI * Tempest.
  • The hi resonance feedback sound was made with the modular system.
  • The Bass is from the Cwejman VM-1.

Here’s what Ma.De had to say about my track –

We wanted to remix this song because it touched our hearts, and we can relate to your lyrics. It is melancholic, yet uplifting, that is what we wanted to express in our Remix ♥

Lyrics:Were we lost, did we find
how you been, healed in time
was it wrong was it right days were dark, now they’re light
Contact made through sharing a passion
the beautiful music I loved to listen
thought we shared, but disagreed
but always, always beneath
but always, always a need
Were we lost, did we find
how you been, healed in time
was it wrong was it right
days were dark, days were dark, days were dark,
now they’re light
now they’re
days were dark are they light?

Darren Claxton is a Songwriter, Musician and Producer of his own music, from Derbyshire UK. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’ . But most of all, it’s his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.
