NYC musician David Bronson is back with a very fresh new take on his customary guitar driven rock – he’s teamed up with up and coming beatmaker Silk Lung to remix former single ‘Times’. Could you check this out and post if you’re into it?
Times comes from his previous album ‘Story’ (produced by Godfrey Diamond, known for his work with Lou Reed) – Bronson’s in the process of finishing the follow up which will be ready for release this autumn.
While wrapping up the second instalment to his 22-song opus, ‘The Long Lost Story’ NYC singer songwriter David Bronson has teamed up with Brooklyn beatmaker Silk Lung to electronically revamp one of the most epitomising tracks from his recent debut ‘Story’.
On the collaboration with the Brooklyn, NY multi-instrumentalist Jim Orso (aka Silk Lung), Bronson says:
‘I was introduced to him by Maria Neckam. They had done some work together that I really liked. From there it was a very easy process, I sent him the tracks and his first draft was more or less what you hear on the remix. I was totally psyched, not only because I immediately loved it but also because, while it’s obviously a different thing than the original he managed to maintain the essence of the song, sort of the same bones, which I thought was great.’
Watch the video for this new remix here:
‘I wanted to somehow keep a connection to the original ‘Times’ video,’ David says, ‘and we basically just went with the over-arching theme of time passing, but also the idea of repetition (staying in the same place). There’s definitely an element of poking fun at myself and joking about something that was serious, which is a good thing in general I think, but also connotes time passing. The video will also be the first to bring in a few small elements from a much larger written background mythology behind The Long Lost Story, which will start cropping up in a number of the videos.’
