"Insomniak" - "Im Asleep" Backwards

Post by fibreoptic » Thu May 03, 2007 3:10 pm

Right ive never got over this scince back in the day on Acid when I stumbled across this when mixing

DJ PC - Insomniak

The Vocal part "Insomniak" If you play it backwards is says "Im asleep" and vice versa

What is this all about - still to this day i find it very spooky infact it scares the shit out of me TBH

Are their any other tunes where similar happens?

i don't have it to listen to right now but i'm sure that the "asleep" was definitely another vocal sample. only the "I'm" comes from the "insomniak" sample reversed.

In the main tune yep, but the bit I posted above is it being reversed in cool edit (as u can hear it doesn't sound as clear as the bits in the actual tune - due to the extra sample).

Reet i cant understand this

Whenever the word Insomniak was invented i doubt very much audio was available - so how the fuck does this happen? It's the opposite to being asleep for christ sake

Im off to boil my heed :lol:

Deffo not an overlaid sample

We've just recorded a voice clip of Phil saying "Insomniak" and played backards is does sound like "Im a sleep" deffo not an overlayed sample

Im going home like - had enough of this crack

Ive reversed it in the clip above - does sound pretty much like I'm asleep - but in the actual tune when it says 'Im asleep', they've layered an extra bit to emphesise the word sleep - pretty amazing even without the layering bit, although not quite as clear

You know I always thought it was "time for sleep".
That is pretty cool though, I've only got it on CD single so can't play it backwards.
