Covers

Whevever I wasn’t feeling creative or inspired to work on my own stuff, I often opted to create remixes or cover versions just to keep my head in the game. This practise stems back to the early days when I was still doing MODs in trackers. But over time, doing covers has become an alter-ego and has allowed me to flex another talent besides production.

Below is a list of all the cover versions I’ve done, those that I felt were appropriate to showcase have been linked.

I Want You Now

Depeche Mode

2001: This was not me singing, but it was my first attempt at a cover version production, and the first of many Depeche Mode songs.

  • I Want You Now (Time To Kill)
  • I Want You Now (Time Killed)
  • I Want You Now (Killing Time)

Enjoy (9 tracks)

  • One Caress
  • Only When I Love Myself
  • Halo
