The Original Mix of Like It Used To Be is available for listen on Superchief’s Soundcloud-page
Exodus reflects the journey and desire of leaving earth in search of new places. Using many beautiful ‘analog’ instruments such as the Doepfer Dark Energy, Moog Little Phatty, etc. we’re working on an epic musical storytelling yourney. As a preview we’re proud to let you hear the first track of this forthcoming album:
I’m taking my time getting new inspirations, encounters, life-developments etc. to be part of this concept-album. Things have to happen when the time is right, and the pieces of a puzzle have to fit in right. I have thus far a continuous mix prepared for you all which shows you the first 1/3 of the album as it should be sounding once completed.
Rebecca Schouw and Gerard Kielenstijn recorded their own version, after which I offered them to do remix, and so here we are… Fun fact: The Gibb’s originally wrote this song for Marvin Gaye to be an R&B-song before offering it to Rogers to include it on his ‘Eyes That See In The Dark’ album
Back in the early 90’s I started composing and making music with Protracker and Fasttracker on the Commodore 64 and Amiga homecomputers. It was in the haydays of sampling when we had but 4 tracks available and had to hand-program all sounds, melodies and such by hand. It was more programming/coding than hands-on writing and composing we can do nowadays with modern DAW’s. There was a vivid demoscene which brought out numerous timeless and epic tunes. One of those really stood out for me. It was Guitar Slinger made by Norwegian Jogeir Liljedahl. His music has such a human and organic feel you could hardly hear it was ‘coded’ in a program. In honour of one of his songs (Guitar Slinger) I decided to do this remake.
