Switchfoot’s “Afterlife” – (Rocky Bourgoyne Remix)

This was my entry for Switchfoot’s Remix contest for their anthem of a song, “Afterlife”. I programmed heavier drums making it more like a beat and giving the rhythm more a push instead of laid-back feel. I also added piano, synth, pad and did some vocal edits; nothing fancy. I took a simple approach because I really didn’t want to take core elements away from the song.  I have included both my version and the original song.
