Welcome back to the Sunday Soundtrack for 16 Aug 09. I trust all is well with you. Here we are in the month of August. I want a do-over (as we used to say as kids) for the summer. It’s flying by waaaaay to fast, but, I’m enjoying it anyway. It’s been especially a good time for new musical endeavors, discoveries, and connecting with new artists that allow me, as well as request for me, to feature their tracks on this podcast – that’s always a good thing.
Speaking of connecting with new musical endeavors and connecting with new artists, the last month has afforded me the opportunity to do something I’ve wanted to do for quite sometime: working on remixes. Just over the last week, I was asked, and got the chance to, lay some guitar tracks for a remake of a Stevie Wonder classic, Rocket Love. The artist who did the arrangement and recording is none other than Fave of the world famous Friday Favecast. Fave sent me his initial track, I laid my track, sent it back, he worked it and sent it to the third party on the flow on in LA, Todd Kelley of Flowink, for the drum programming. I love the fact that we are leveraging the net, as well as Logic Studio to make this track nice. Gotta be truthful about it, it’s already a winner. Stay tuned.
Similarly, while this is all going on, another NICE artist we both follow on Twitter, Philip Clark approaches Todd and I to do remixes for his previous album. While Todd has mad flow in this area, I am very excited to get the chance to a remix for an artist with such mad flow. I received his vocal stems today and will start work on it soon, something I’m defnitely looking forward to. Stay tuned to the Sunday Soundtrack for featured tracks by Philip Clark.
That being said, this edition of the podcast features a number of tracks that are remixes, three speicifically of a track entitled “Janeiro” by Soul Sessions. I’m liking the flow of the playlist. I hope you do as well. With that being said: the playlist.

Thanks for listening, as always I appreciated. Special thanks to Kim for the photo above. She was driving a few days ago, snapping and posting everything she found interesting to Twitter and this one (as well as another for next week) caught my eye! Good job (your BB seems to take great pics!)
For the Twitter fans and Facebook crew, please feel free to follow and join me there in both places, respectively.
