Remix: Cubik & Origami - "Bought & Sold"

Just released is a somewhat dreamy remix I produced for San Francisco duo Cubik & Origami, of a cool track titled "Bought & Sold." I've always liked Origami's vocals (check him out on the EIGHT-TRACKS single "Beyond The LIne" by clicking HERE) so I was well up for this remix project.

I basically just used the vocal hook, repeated, and a couple of synth pads from the original. I wanted a bayou-like flow to define the track, to give an aural impression of calmly reaching some destination. The mid-section is a bit I'm particularly happy with ... it's quite the patient build. I've had some DJs tell me this part can be a bit frustrating but, trust me: try it on a loud system with a dancefloor inhabiting the deeper zone and the track is quite effective. Have a listen here:
