Charles Webster – The Gift of Freedom (High Skies Remix)

An appropriate post for the 24th July (today), is the High Skies remix of ‘Charles Webster – The Gift of Freedom‘ from his ‘Born on the 24th of July‘ album. Actually it was on the remix album ‘Remixed on the 24th of July‘ as an album of remixes from the album.

Uncoincidentally, today is Charles’ birthday.

I should post a picture of the Arrange page from Logic, I seem to remember using over 300 tracks for the remix. There is an unreleased mix somewhere too, with more of a beat. Vocals by Xan.

Happy birthday Charles!

UPDATE: It would appear that the record company has removed the above video from YouTube. Shame.
