Warezio - Unconditionally Crystalline (Katy Perry vs. The Midnight)

Katy Perry - Unconditionally (Stems)
The Midnight - Crystalline (Instrumental)

The Midnight recently showed me some kindness so I decided to work with the Nocturnal instrumentals. Turns out there is a Katy Perry song for each one, but this combination is my favorite.

Warning: long and with a high dynamic range.

Version 1: (more BGV)

This is a very nice production, warezio :1rolleyes:

I have to agree with you about the length. The intro is too long for me (almost 2 min) and I guess the same for radio stations. I already heard some of your tracks in Shahar Varshal's show, and I'm sure he will be glad to broadcast a Radio edit version of this one.

What do you think of making a radio edit version? I think you'll only have to deal with the intro, nothing else. In any case, keep this version alive, you can always publish more than one version for the same track :1wink:

It's a good idea for mass consumption, but I'd like to get feedback on this version. I tried to preserve the instrumental as much as possible to appeal to The Midnight and their fans. (I had to edit it slightly for harmonic reasons, but note the original is 6:02 I stuck pretty close to it, it actually "wants" to be longer in that the final KP chorus is cut in half).

Sounds good to my ears. I recommend. But I'll recommend almost anything mixed with a The Midnight song.
However, you have the stems, but I didn't notice your use of the background vocals (which are very nice for Unconditionally) I would recommend you experiment with the BGV's to add some interest to this mix.

Let me revisit this with fresh ears.

For version 0, I used BGV tracks 1 and 2 starting with the 2nd chorus. BGV track 3 seemed clashy at parts, but I do use it "open up your heart". BGV 4, 5 and 6 seemed to cover up the sax so I didn't use them. But I may have missed some opportunities.

Version 1 posted.

There was some tasty stuff in BGV 6 I was missing out on.
