Description
I have been bugging Jay (PrototypeEightyOne) to send me a song since the first one we did together a year ago. I really like his blend of sounds and style. Well...he finally broke down and let me have one. This track was smooth and I felt really called for a "Cloak and Dagger" type theme. I hope you can get where I was heading with this one. I had a great time with it and look forword to more with P81.

Lyrics

what's that?
I think im paranoid
i turn my fucking head
at every single noise
theres all this clicking and clacking
and its got me back tracking
I know theyre coming for me
better bring out my toys


There gonna pay pay pay
for blowing my cover

youre Deep inside
youre living in disguise
your smile says theyre-
in for a big suprise
when it all goes down
and it must go down
theyll know you were
the mastermind

Run and hide
and never close your eyes
there right behind
in the shadows of your mind

i get the lay of the land
while im on the lamb
now Im ducking and bucking
on the run from the man
no they cant ever stop me
Im the cardinal sin
If I did once
you know Ill do it again

youre Deep inside
youre living in disguise
your smile says theyre-
in for a big suprise
when it all goes down
and it must go down
theyll know you were
the mastermind

Run and hide
and never close your eyes
there right behind
in the shadows of your mind

you know I must face it
face it
there's no way to change it
change it
I put my faith in the game
and played it
Now I forfiet my life
to save it

youre Deep inside
youre living in disguise
your smile says theyre-
in for a big suprise
when it all goes down
and it must go down
theyll know you were
the mastermind

this is cool gaylen....love the elvis costello type delivery you have going on here...you do it so well. this is a fantastic sound bed jay...really dark and urgent. the harmonies at 2.47 and the section after up to the end are fantastic. personally i'd have preferred the lyrics to be about something more interesting than hollywood (no offence matt if you happen to be reading this)...but i'm just nit-picking because everything else is pretty much as good as it gets. it's catchy, expertly mixed and the production values are through the roof. i'd be very proud of this one guys.

Very cool. Very suspenseful music. I like that second vocal set at an octave under the lead vocal - really enhances the suspense. Great music as well - P81 did a really fine job. I like this piece and truly got a kick out of listening to it - Thanks!

mastermind....
master voice and one hell of a master track..... you have been very busy Gaylen. The rise in tension about 1:50 is killer. You and Jay nailed a monster. A soundtrack for a future 007 I think.

Very different for you. I love 81's backer he is quite a talented guy. I had fun listening to you record the vocals for this one. I must say that you surprise me sometimes...I think OMG really, yikes. Then you mix it and do what you do and it sounds fantastic. I don't know why I am surprised, because you are pretty damn amazing at everything you do! Love it!

This is so wonderfully dark. Almost disturbing. You're in particularly great voice. The chorus has a Bond theme vibe! In fact couldn't "Mastermind" be the title of the next Bond movie? Great production and mix.

ted23 said 2467 days ago (January 15th, 2011)
Agree
With Andrew, just add some trademark bond theme strings and this could be the perfect accompaniment to one of those floaty, smokey bond animation title sequences.
Really good!

Thanks

I said it once and i'll say it again, I love what you did with this. Love the vocal layering and harmonies that come into play. Very cool. Couldnt have asked for any better.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to listen and comment. It's a great feeling.

Hott!
You two are the "masterminds," seriously! You guys really cooked up a killer track here, complementing each other very well. This rocks you guys!!
PeterB7858 said 2466 days ago (January 16th, 2011)
Where are the Bond girls?
All it needed to make it complete was backlit Bond girls floating in psychedelic splendour across a widescreen. Killer collaboration that would do a contemporary 007 justice. Well done! Regards, Peter.

Gaylen,
The music and lyric definitely have that secret agent kind of feel. The rhythm and performance of the vocals has a slight hip-hop/rap feel in parts. It creates a very interesting and unique effect. Great job by both of you.

great vocals
Like the off kilter vocals - works well against the wall of chords behind it. Really chugs along - my head was nodding away. Great. very professional sounding too.

Good fit of lyric/melody to backer. Well sung. Nice mix of sounds and well-produced. I agree with the others on potentially placing the song in a spy movie.

Cool tune man! Very dark, could be a theme for a Bond film maybe. Off to order a Martini (shaken not stirred!!) Well done cool collab!

Good job.
This song has a lot of bottom, but not enough top. Haha, just kidding; I don't know what that means.

That's some good singing on what seems like it would be a tricky melody. Good job.

You covers are blown.
Gaylen, your voice sounds like... you... even in disguise. Always on pitch and lotsa power. Jay, you definitely provide a fitting soundstage for a bit of cloak & dagger. At least here at MJ, your collective talents are anything but undercover and we can freely enjoy 'em.
