Great track came in this week from Poplab in Austria – the songwriting and production team of Natascha Hagen and Martin Frainer. The track was called Run and a perfect, high-energy, edgy, dramatic pop song. Time was short so I offered to do a midi-only arrangement but in the end I created the audio with East West and some samples I built myself, specifically for this song. As usual I threw loads of ideas at the track (start to finish) knowing that some would get rejected, but I was pleased with what Poplab decided to keep!
They were very fussy about every last note, and so they should be. They had clearly put a lot of effort and passion into producing the song, so the arrangement went backwards and forwards a few times before we settled on a final version.
