For WBSS, I added some things:

-the kick (808)
-the drums (chopped, cleaned intro from WAR's "Galaxy")
-additional claps from stock stuff I use
-additional percussion from stock stuff I've collected, and the Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough demo (from the Off The Wall reissue)

Once I found the BPM (126), it was easy to properly overdub some stuff. Since WBSS's basis was a drum machine, things locked fairly well.

I also chopped the synth bassline into pieces and reconstructed it. With the WBSS stems, whoever put them together pre-mixed some things so it was a challenge to get a clean mix. PLENTY of paragraphic EQ was used... :-)

For RWY, I didn't add anything, but I took his finger snap track, processed it with a noise gate to be the official "time keeper" of the track. It was fun listening to his snaps with the headphones on 20 and shit...LOL. There was a LOT of stuff that was recorded but not used in the final mix, so it was fun to play with those tracks.

Nice. This reminds me of the Stripped Mixes that Motown put out a while back. I loved those.


Did you add anything external to this? I got the PYT stems, but I haven't really listened through them to hear the differences from what was released. Nice extension of the original track length.
