Lionel Richie and Diana Ross – Endless Love (Neverending Love Remix)

by Ruben on July 9th, 2009 3 comments »

This remix was actually never meant to become a remix at all. A friend had a quite simple request for an audio edit he wanted for a DJ session he had to do at a wedding. The personal song of the married couple was “Endless Love” and my friend had the idea of giving them a little scare by faking the CD player to be breaking down after about one minute. So the original idea/request was just some stuttering effect after about one minute in the song.

While doing this “stutter”, I got the idea to use the tempo of the stutter as a basis for a beat and started to add a bassline to that beat. That’s really how this remix came about in the end.

When this song was finished I had just discovered SoundCloud and I used this song to test how I could upload my own songs in there and embed them on my blog. Even though it wasn’t my first remix, “Endless Love” was my very first SoundCloud upload!

The first minute of the remix is just the original, then the “stutter” is introduced, raising the tempo from the original 92 BPM to 128 BPM.

For the full effect, just listen to this remix from the very start and imagine yourself slow-dancing with your partner to it on your wedding day.

Additional info

After this song has been hanging around on SoundCloud for about 4 years, it suddenly because very popular amongst mainly Asian people. I have no idea why, but it went sort of viral when everybody was reposting this song to friends, who were reposting it, etc. etc.

While I was wondering what the hell was going on, the song suddenly disappeared from SoundCloud and then I received a mail from SoundCloud. The money-eager music industry vultures struck again and my song was banned…
