Like the first time (Kidburn) – GPRMusic remix

This song is a rmx of the original “Like the first time” song by Kidburn.
Check out the original song at this link.

I had the pleasure to collaborate with Kidburn after contacting him via Soundcloud and it was such a fantastic esperience for me!! What a great artist he is!

The voice and the guitar are from Kidburn, the music and the sounds come from my equipment.

Hope you’ll enjoy it.

Keep out your tears (feat. Paolo Piergentili)

A track born from the collaboration with Paolo Piergentili (@piergap). The original song, only instrumental, was remixed and a vocal track was added. The entire song is inspired to “Interstellar” movie and to the moment the dad has to leave his daughter and tell her he’s to go to save our world. 
Enjoy.
