Farr commented about his remix, “I had a lot of fun making this song. It was a fun challenge to try to flip the original into a remix that fit my Urple Eeple brand. I started by creating a new chord progression that I really liked on my Prophet 06, and then I worked with seeing which vocal parts fit over the new chord progression. I chopped up the vox quite a bit to pick out the notes that really worked well with the new chords, and did a lot of pitch shifting on vocal layers – then I wrote in some key changes and played with a few different drop ideas. I really wanted to flip the original into something that was totally different, but carried a lot of soul and emotion. I’m really happy with how this remix came out and am really excited to share it with my fans!”
Spoken Bird says of his remix: “When SEAPORA asked me to do a remix for her upcoming album I was excited at the chance to work on a song by such a talented vocalist. When I first heard ‘Traveling’, I immediately knew that was the song I wanted to work with, as its ethereal dreamy soundscapes and lush thick vocals instantly drew me in and set my imagination on fire. This was a fun remix for me to work on as I was able to play with several styles, and really work with the story provided by Seapora’s lyrics to guide my own ideas. I’m excited for the rest of the world to hear this great album!”
