Why did the good Doctor do it? In his own words…
I saw Lily Allen for the first time in 2006 while on tour in Iceland. We didn’t actually meet face to face and I didn’t even catch her name; my introduction was seeing her video for “Smile” in a crappy hotel room. A few days later I was strolling around a gigantic Virgin Record store in London, when I saw a poster of her and the name… Lily Allen. I snagged her debut record and went home to New York a fan.
Fast forward to 3 years later: Lily Allen is a bonefied pop-star and is releasing her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You. I reach out to her US record label to see if they were commissioning any remixes… no dice. Lily was, however, releasing all of the parts to all of the songs on the album so anyone could remix them. Brilliant. I knew I had to remix the whole album.
One thing I really like about Lily Allen is her knack for pairing bouncy music with not-so-bouncy lyrics. My goal in remixing her entire record was to see what would happen if I placed Lily’s voice and lyrics into new musical landscapes that were a complete departure from the original recordings. As most of the original album It’s Not Me, It’s You is upbeat (thanks to Greg Kurstin’s awesome production) my remixed version It’s Not Me, It’s Doctor Rosen Rosen takes on a darker/dreamier tone. I mixed a lot of organic sounds (pianos, strings, glockenspiel, horns) with dreamy synths, deep basses, and big drums to create a totally new record. I produced, composed, and mixed all of the music you hear. The only original parts I used were Lily’s vocal tracks.
I really enjoyed making this and I hope you enjoy listening.
Best, Doctor Rosen Rosen
