The audio editing for ‘Body Shine’ was quite difficult as the track has a very progressive character and is constantly building, and by removing sections here and there, it was disrupting the overall flow of the track, a common problem I had to face across various other tracks on the compilation.
In the end I decided on removing a couple of sections from the start of the arrangement to speed up the progression, and also altered the ending of the track.
The ending of the track is actually an interesting area to listen out for, as at 6:11 ‘Meet Her At The Love Parade’ is introduced, and if you listen very carefully to the filtered bass of ‘Body Shine’ I did some audio editing so that the full bass progression plays just before the track ends, and this helps improve the cadence between the two tracks as it resolves harmonically, something which is not available on the original version of ‘Body Shine’, as the bass note does not move.
