Freeze! is my second series of electronic music tracks. In this series, i tried to go to the maximum pressure of bass - so don't use loudness or other equalizer settings with more bass!! it's already in twice! ;-)
I started from where the first series ended: the clumsy breakbeat of Freeze! is based on the 2-step beat of the track Love you, which was the last track of my first Album The Web Experience. Right after finishing Freeze! I decided to do a remix of the track. Although in this Freeze! Rmx there are only slight variations in the synth sounds and beats, the result is quite "spacy". With Freeze! Max I continued in that direction - finally it became something like a classic "hard trance"-version of Freeze! (...and my favourite one - "Well done, Max!").
With Freeze! Minimax I went back to the breakbeat. Here, the focus lies on the e-bass line. Freeze! Supermax finally can be described as a melange of the Max and Minimax-Versions, with a straight beat and several added synths and sound effects; perhaps the most characteristic feature is the guitar that joins in for the last two and a half minutes of the track. While the other versions were all produced in one go during september 2007, Supermax underwent several slight modifications until I was happy with the final result; the final mix down was in may 2008.
While working on some remixes of old 80ies tracks in summer 2008 (I'll tell you more about that in a future post) I also went back to Freeze! and produced another Remix that started from the Minimax-Version. That was it - with this track called Frozen (july 2008), the Freeze!-Series was completed. Definitely.
The original version of Freeze! and the Freeze! Rmx is available with visuals (february / june 2011). You can also preview/listen to Freeze! Max and Frozen (see below).
