IMTS – I Mixed “The Shock” 2008

Just finished the cover artwork. Video coming soon. =)

Here’s the full version of I Missed “The Shock” – the very first remix we half-released to kickstart the underground project. It’s one of my personal favourite remixes (and of course the original song remains one of the greatest works from the 80s which never fail to make me go “how on earth did they come up with a song this kickass!?!?” Enjoy, and remember to BLAST THIS! Jen, hope this makes your day. ;))

Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

    Thanx so much for sharing with us.
    =)
    p.s.- addition to my ipod’s akina list

  2. Thanks guys!! Glad it made your day. Jen, I understand about the doom and gloom. We can all do with some cheering up!! =)

  3. I think this greatly improves on the original. There were also doubts (by fans) as to why she chose this over “Bilitis” as the A-Side, because the latter was slated to be the A-side till the last minute when Akina changed her mind.

    A review that I remembered reading from “Ai Eye” magazine which reviewed this single when it was released said “A simple melody with difficult arrangement”. After reading some other blogs on this single, I could see why Akina chose this song because it stood the test of time, and perhaps this remix is the best representation of its timeliness.

    I need this song for my birthday party at home. Gonna convert more Akina fans. LOL.

    Here I am working (sort of) and was thinking about the remix of IMTS.
    The remix is so great I decided to make it a single CD, sort of like an album kind of thing.
    And plus, my work place has good color printing machines =)
    And OMG! After I printed the cool graphic by dannybunny, I came to realize it’s the PERFECT size for the CD cover!
    How cool is this?!?!??!!
    =)
    Made my day again! Two days in a row~~
    dannybunny 好貼心~~

  5. Wow, Jen. It’s great you’re so psyched about the remix. It makes it all the more worthwhile working on the project cos the sole purpose is for fans to have fun and to breathe new life into the songs. PLUS she’s never had a decent remix ever.

    Jen, to sweeten Day #3 for you, lemme know your email addie and I’ll send the audio file over. =)

  6. Jamez – Bilitis IS a superb song for a side-b. It’s single material no doubts about it. Which was why we got that remixed as well. It’s one of my Top 3 favourite Akina songs ever. When we worked on remixing IMTS, it was almost impossible at first due to the BPM. It’s super fast for what appears to be a mid-tempo song. Giving it more ooomph and punch makes the song sounds much faster but it’s actually the exact same speed. =)
