This topic has come up before but I thought I would bring it up again. Mainly because we recently received a fat sync fee for a repurposed track. This is the second time this particular track has paid off handsomely.
I’ve always been a fan of looking back at older tracks and giving them a new life. Maybe through re-structuring, adding instruments, changing beats, software tricks, anything for a fresh take. In this most recent example I took an old country track, added a banjo and, in the spirit of Gangsta Grass, added a hip hop feel to it (in reality a half time feel). Here’s the video https://vimeo.com/433160569.
Wow, that is a really great track, and fits the commercial perfectly! Did you play in the fiddle/violin live?
Yes, reworking tracks is something I’ve done quite a bit to make additional versions for the same library. Some have gone on to do better than the originals..
