Behind The Track – by DJ Flubbel
“The first time when I heard the original song (a classic piano song with the same title, by Yiruma) was during a funeral of one of my patients that I lost last year. The melody touched me deeply and I was truly amazed by it. For me, music is a very powerful tool to really experience my emotions. I directly thought: “Wow, I really should remix this song one day”. But weeks passed and I kind of forgot what the song was called and whoever made it. Then one day I heard the track again, this time in a sushi bar, where I was after a very long day of work. I went to the waitress and asked what song was played. She told me, and after that I decided to do the remix and dedicate that song to all the patients I lost. Also I decided to make a Christian version by adding a scripture from John 7:38: “Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare: Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.” The video on Youtube was made with the help of DJ Flubbel fans, sending in pictures or photos which a message of love for people all over the world. I decided to donate 100% of the profit to Charity (providing drinking water in third world countries).”
I don’t really have too much to add to what DJ Flubbel has already said other than that this is a really uplifting track. The melodies from Yiruma’s piano piece work really nicely as they transition between the piano and synths riffs while the bouncy kicks and chords keep things bright and positive.
The scripture vocal is simple but communicates the gospel message in a very effective way alongside the video.
It’s also great to see an artist doing something positive not just musically but physically as well by supporting a good cause with the proceeds from sales of the track.
