Unreleased track #4: Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It

Yes, you read that right, a remix of Will Smith. Sometimes when programming a track that I don’t have any vocal part for, I’ll throw an acapella over it to get an idea for pacing and timing in the arrangement. In this case, I had Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It laying around. I originally composed this track mostly from samples I recorded on The Atomica Project tour (special thanks to Corey McCafferty for his impromptu beat-boxing, and the Cheathams for their hospitality). Because of that, I was hoping to get J*Star, who we met in Cleveland, to rap over it. Once I had a demo instrumental, I passed it along to him, but he couldn’t do anything with it, and neither could anyone else I passed it to. I’m not too suprised; the track jumps all over from 7/8 to 4/4 and things like that. So rather than collecting digital dust, I’m backpedaling to a Will Smith remix.
