Teardrops in Amsterdam (2016)

"Teardrops in Amsterdam" is a mash-up I made from sampling Massive Attack's "Teardrop" and Jon Hassell's "Amsterdam Blue (Cortége)".

I stripped down both songs, taking out some instrumentals and other elements. For instance, I isolated the trumpet from "Amsterdam Blue" and then spliced them into certain parts of the track.

The sound in the "Teardrop" sample is subdued and the bass decreased. The full copyright notice is featured in the ending credits. Photography by Michael Mira.
