Day 2: PRINCE “The Beautiful Ones” (Brooklyn Remix | GIBRIL) + DAY 3: “The Beautiful Ones” (Mandinka Remix | GIBRIL)

Day 2 + Day 3 was an interesting journey.  I’m recalling the cherished memories of tracks as they play.  Family gatherings, cook outs, parties and my heart is not sad but empowered by Prince’s incredible spirit.

As a creator of sound, he was a genius at manipulating it and a prodigy of it’s mechanics.  I was actually sick yesterday, pretty bad too.  It wasn’t till late at night where there was time to tweak it, but out of all that, these 2 works emerge.

The Brooklyn Remix is an Afro Drum induced classic thats pretty straight forward.

The Mandinka Remix is where the mind started to explore the world of sound and that’s where it went.  – Gibril

I had a bold idea to do 14 daily remixes to Tribute the Legend PRINCE.  The thought and intentions were well placed, as for time… thats another thing.  I seem to always do this lol, but it’s all good I work best under pressure.

This is the best therapy for me right now.  Prince and his Gemini spirit is kindred to my own Gemini Spirit.  I hope you all enjoy… bless up!


This went where it went and I pretty much just let that shit flow.  I thought I was doing a Hip Hop beat but something else transpired.

This is one of endless song direction options, if I play with it again, something else would transpire.  I wanted to keep the original essence yet make it unique enough to showcase my sensibility of sound.

This can always be improved, cleaner chops and such but time is a luxury that I don’t have.    Who know’s where we’ll go tomorrow but I hope you enjoy the free download.
