Heroes Tonight

Janji – Heroes Tonight (feat. Johnning) (Freccero Remix) [Freccero Flip]

No Comments Music

It’s time for some flips…and I’m not talking about Parkour. Earlier this year I decided to remix Janji’s incredible track Heroes Tonight, and while it came out decent, I felt that there was more to the track that I could bring out. It was always in the back of my mind that I wish I did something different…so I figured why not just remix it again. This is a remix of my remix (remixception) of Heroes Tonight, a full on Freccero Flip with Bass House elements blended with upbeat electro.

Song Explanation

Starting off with this remix, I wanted to create a nice percussive groove in the beginning. Not only is this good for mixing purposes, but I wanted to make the beginning a lot different than my previous remix to set them apart.

The verse is very comparable to my original remix, as I added in my own percussion, bass, and effects to really bring out the emotion of Johnning’s vocals. For this flip, I added two extra layers of vocals: One pitched an octave up, and another pitched an octave down. This added a lot more width to the vocals, making them sound a lot more full and rich.

The track then builds, and at the point where the original song drops, I decided to loop the vocals and build it up once again. I wanted to create a lot of tension, in addition to letting the listener know that the drop is going to be a lot different than the original.

On the drop, I went for a blend of Bass House and Electro, going for a heavy feel while not being too much in your face. I use a few different synths on the drop to make it upbeat and give it that energetic feel, keep that energy flowing from the first verse.

After the drop I go into the second verse, which is comparable to the first where I really highlight Johnning’s vocals. The track then builds up, and this time drops as it normally would.

Because I wanted to make the second drop interesting compared to the first, I decided to make it more melodic as oppose to the first one which is more static. I used the same exact synths as before, except had the melodic structure really punch through to make it more passionate.

The track finally ends into the outro, which really helps close out the whole track. This is the first track I’ve ever remixed twice, and I’m really happy I decided to remix it a second time.

 

Lyrics

I’m walking alone, the streets are empty
The only I can see is my own silhouette
I’m getting stronger step by step
The clock is ticking but there is no time for regrets
I’ve been flying from town to town
From London to Taiwan
I’ve been all around the globe
Trying to protect your soul

We are heroes tonight
We would fly above the sky
We are heroes tonight, yeah
We are heroes tonight
We would fly above the sky
We are heroes tonight, yeah
Night yeah

Feeling like a dynamite
Ready to explode right up in the sky
I need you to listen I need you to hear
And don’t show any fear
I’ve been flying from town to town
From London to Thailand
I’ve been all around the globe
Trying to protect your soul

We are heroes tonight
We would fly above the sky
We are heroes tonight, yeah
We are heroes tonight
We would fly above the sky
We are heroes tonight, yeah
We are heroes tonight, yeah
Night yeah

We are heroes tonight
We would fly above the sky
We are heroes tonight, yeah

I’ve been flying from town to town
From London to Thailand
I’ve been all around the globe
Trying to protect your soul
