"With my remix of Aquakultre's Pay It Forward I wanted to keep the same message and atmospheres of the song, but with my own style and interpretation. I loved the message of Lance's lyrics and needed to retain those same lyrics and ensure they were heard clearly and utilized a choral treatment with certain phrases sampling and layering his voice.
I loved the background sounds in the song so I wanted to bring some of the more subtle atmospheres to the forefront and used and resampled the beautiful original instruments and drum machines recorded at the NMC. I made my own drum beats with the LINN drum sounds used and chopped up the original drum set part to play with the rhythmic aspects and to add to the intense texture at the end of the song. This is the first remix I have worked on and am grateful and honoured to work with Aquakultre."
