Verve Music Group’s Love to Love You Donna, a remix album of Donna Summer’s greatest hits, utilized Audionamix’s audio source separation technology to produce several songs on this recent release, which celebrates the beloved “Queen of Disco” and her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. Verve’s visionary A&R team called upon Audionamix to provide isolated vocals from mixed recordings. Produced by Randall Poster and Dahlia Ambach-Caplin, Love to Love You Donna is now available in stores and on iTunes.
“It was exciting to work on these vocal isolations, but it was a tall order,” says Audionamix’s VP of Production Rick Silva. “We’ve delivered several isolated tracks for Verve in the past, but the source material supplied for this project was especially challenging because of the driving beats and synthesized sounds layered throughout these legendary dance tracks. Fortunately, the timing was right, and we were able to utilize our latest audio source separation technology, which is also featured in ADX TRAX – our professional software due out early next year.”
Some of the premier DJs who relied on Audionamix’s separated vocal tracks when contributing remixes on Love to Love You Donna include Afrojack and Benga, who delivered remixes for “I Feel Love,” Jacques Greene for his version of “On the Radio,” and Krystal Klear, whose remix “Our Love” is an iTunes bonus track.
“For years we have been solving complex audio challenges for content owners, creatives, and pro audio technicians in the entertainment industry,” says Audionamix’s VP of Operations Arnaud Dudemaine. “We are excited to continue our collaboration with Verve, and honored to play a part in this historic tribute album. These creative remixes will surely re-ignite Donna Summer’s legacy for yet another generation.”
Verve Music Group has reached out to Audionamix on several recent releases, including Rod Stewart’s virtual duet with Ella Fitzgerald on “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” from Merry Christmas Baby; Barbra Streisand’s “Mother And Child” from Release Me; Andre Bocelli’s virtual duet with Edith Piaf on “La Vie En Rose” from Passione; Natalie Cole’s second virtual duet with her father Nat King Cole on “Acércate Más” from Natalie Cole en Español, as well as Verve Remixed: The First Ladies, a remix compilation album featuring vocal isolations by Audionamix for legendary artists such as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald, among others.
Beyond vocal and instrumental separation, Audionamix also provides dialogue isolation, stem separation, music dissociation, and much more. Their ADX TRAX software for separating full mixes into two audio files – a vocal track and its accompanying music track – is slated for release early next year.
