In 2010, Paul’s First E.P. was my first “proper” release. This was available worldwide as a digital download, distributed by Ditto Music on their Native Tongue label.
I used the original versions of Life’s What You Make It and Try To Live Your Dreams and remixed Long Way From Me and Let It All Hang Out, giving both a very different sound. With all my previous albums, I had used the same live drum and bass sound throughout. I changed these for a different sound and reprogrammed and improved the drum fills. In the case of Let It All Hang Out, I gave it a really funky drum and bass sound.
Long Way From Me was taken even further away from the original version by speeding it up slightly and cutting the lead guitar outro. I added some of the lead guitar over the last chorus and applied the fade there. This reduced the length of the track from 5:59 to 4:46. A much more palatable length!
