Dynamite - fan created 'cover' version

Added on Thursday 08 September 2005, 11:01 (BST)

I'd love to help share with Jamiroquai fans a superb cover version of Dynamite (2.7mb MP3), including elements of Mr Moon, Seven Days In Sunny June and You Give Me Something - all in one song lasting just under three minutes!

Chris Manias from Sydney, Australia created the track, with all bass, guitars, keyboards, vocoder, percussion and vocals are performed by himself.  To create the track he used the following software:

  • CubaseVST 32
  • Synth, Clavinet - Reason
  • Fender Rhodes - EV73 plug in (using a phaser affect)
  • sound effects & synths - Pro 52 plug in

The track was finally mastered using TREX mastering software. 

I know that there are many bands out there that cover Jamiroquai tracks but I really believe that Chris has done a fantastic job in putting a number of Jamiroquai tracks together into one composition.

Have you got any home made musical creations that you'd like to share?  If so, please feel free to put your track online (perhaps using a service such as if you do not already have webspace anywhere), and then post the URL (using if necessary to make it shorter) as a comment against this news item. 

To start it off I have added a link to a pretty funky home made remix of Canned Heat.  Now it is your turn...

Finally, please don't email me any MP3 files - just add the URL of your file on the site using the comments facility.  Thank you.

Chris, you've got the groove in your hands!!! And you sing very well. Great vocal effects and the way you play bass(great slap) is sooo funky! Man, you're on the right way!!!

link doesnt work??

I don't know why you are having trouble with the link, but try this one, which is on a different server:

Awesome mate! Astonishing bassplay, and love the Rhodes and effects, very faithful vocals, sublimely mixed! But most of all VERY FUNKY!!! (Yes!!!!) Hats off to you!

I must say that is really impressive!! I was very sceptical while I waited for it to download but I must say I was pleasently suprised. My hat goes off to you Chris.

Where did you get those programs cos I fancy myself as a bit of a singer but I am totally illiterate when it comes to using software.

Keep it funky,

@Chris: Cool stuff man!!! Groove on in down under!
Cheers from Hamburg, Germany!

yeah! the bass is too funky, great slap, pawap pawap pow!!CONGRATULATOINS CHRIS from Sidney.

I agree with you, puts a new edge on a already brilliant song, is there anyway of downloading this?


Andy: you should be able to just right-click, and "save as" (provided you're using a PC).
