"Innocence" first cut

Here's the bit I did on the Innocence dance remix (1.8MB mp3/160) over the weekend. I've been listening to it quite a bit... currently it's kinda more chintzy-electronic-y than I'd like. That will change as I keep working on it and mixing. It's on the right track. I'm borrowing bits from several different techno/trance/electronic artists that I like, but I think it needs more "Dirty Vegas" feel to it. There's nothing fancy going on with the beat either, just a straight beat with no percussion or fills, so some variation will help there too.

Here's the original version from the CD (5.28MB mp3/128), for comparison.

Quite a difference, huh! It's fun for me to play around with stuff like this and go "against type" musically. I don't think musicians should be limited to only doing one thing for their entire careers.
