nah, i dont know if you listened to mine, but i just used the original weeknd song + a lot like birds acapella, so i didnt use an acapella by the weeknd. i doubt there are any out there that are very good quality, because homemade acapellas are generally kinda weak.
seeing as your friends with all the dgd guys, how would you feel about remixing one of their songs?

doing remixes for something isnt as easy as just picking a song you dig and "making a remix." there are a few things that go into that make it difficult and usually not possible.

1.) you need the individual tracks (personally, i like working only with a vocal track so that i can create a new song underneath. rarely do i use other parts of the song im remixing aside from vocals) some bands release the individual tracks, but if they dont, its pretty hard to do a cool remix of anything without that. i dont really have any dgd stems.

2.) the songs cant really change tempos. a lot of dgd songs change tempos. for me to do a solid remix, the song has to stay the same tempo, other stuff just gets really wacky and impossible to deal with. i could probably remix something off Happiness potentially, because there are a few songs that dont change tempos, i think. but again, id still need the vocal track by itself, which i dont have, and is kinda hard to get because it requires the engineer/producer of the album to dig that shit up
yeah, the acquisition of stems is what I was mainly asking about with that question. I didn't have any idea if you guys or crumett had that lying around somewhere to just give out to certain people. and seeing as you have a tendency to share cool shit (see: Prepro demos) with people on the internet, I wasn't really sure if they would be willing to just up and give them to you.
