Last year, filmmaker Mark Oxman asked me if he could use one of my remixes in his short film called “Sing Along” a musical short film starring Myles Erlick, Alice Ripley, Sam Tsui, Heidi Blickenstaff, Uzo Aduba, Remy Zaken, Cassandra Taylor, and Patrick Page.. It was from a special remix I did for some friends of mine many years earlier.

This is a remix I did for the lovely Fisher, a wonderful wife/husband duo, whom first gained fame getting a record deal from their mp3.com exposure in 1999. And were on the soundtrack to one of my favorite movies of all time "Great Expectations":

Listen to the original track so you can see how much I changed the original song. The song is about artists who don't appreciate their fans... and take for granted their success... That's why I used a Christopher Walken quote. The remix:

Justin says: The end sequence in the remix is me singing tons of layers of falcetto vocals! don't miss it. :)

And here is Kathy and Ron's review of my EMT Remix of the same song:
"AMAZING!!!!!!! Kathy and I just listened, and were blown away. Kathy put it best saying "Finally someone has done a remix the represents us instead of them". I thought that summed it up perfectly. The textures, sonics...EVERYTHING is so incredibly interesting. Much more like great sex instead of a race. You are very gifted my friend...It's a total soundtrack."
- Ron Wasserman, Fisher
