Praveen Achary Remixes Above & Beyond

ILM: Congratulations on your new remix for Above & Beyond! What inspired you most about the original track?
PA: Thank you so much! I’ve always been a huge fan of Zoe Johnstons voice, so the vocal texture immediately appealed to me, and the piano parts were on point too. Instead of completely turning it around, I decided to use those parts and add my touch to it, more of a rework or interpretation. The lyrics are quite sad and happy at the same time, so it was important that the music gave that sense.

Quick 6 with… RICHIE SANTANA

1. What’s the first thing you do for inspiration when you get into the studio?
My inspiration comes from three sources, in no particular order. Sometimes it’s from listening to some of the latest promos or new sample packs, but of late I’ve been finding lots of inspiration from some new analog hardware kit. When I get in the studio, I usually like to listen to a lot of music or listen to some sample packs.
