Remix Madness

Over the summer we've had quite a bit of movement on some various remix projects.

First is a remix of a George & Caplin track called "Highway Driveway" - this is slated for a release on the Plastic Sound Supply label. You can find a link to their website in our links section. It's an older remix but many will probably be hearing it for the first time. I'm not clear what else will be included on the release, but I bet their website will tell you more. A fun fact: the George crew gave us the broken-out pieces of the track and we did the entire remix before ever hearing the original. The result was an interesting version that i believe is even in a different key. Definitely intending to do that in the future for other remixes - it was a unique way to stay "uncorrupted" from trying to make it sound like the original.

Second is a remix of the Sound Logic track called "Sage Advice" - this one is going to be a digital release if I understand correctly, and we'll add links to it at some point when its made official. Our friends over at Dorje are the culprits.

Third is a remix of an old Equulei track. We did this just for the hell of it; there is no release save for maybe throwing it up on the Virb player to enjoy at your leisure. We worked on it because why not? thats why.... Track is an older one called "Your Time Is Up" - written way back in 2000 i think and I was waxing sentimental about Equulei's tenth anniversary. Yes, we're that old.

To let you reminisce along with us, I bought our very first piece of gear in November 1997 I believe, the Korg Prophecy at a Denver shop i wish had not gone away (Keyboard Exchange). That was followed shortly thereafter by a PC with Cubase, a Lexicon soundcard with reverb chips built-in, and the Kurzweil. The fun times began in earnest in 1998 when we started spitting out a few tracks and trying to get some gigs. So to bring this back around to the theme, I went back to the archives to find a track that we actually hadn't effed up too bad and we still had a lot of the source material laying around. That happened to be this song. the remixed version is called "Your Time is Still Up."

Enjoy, and thanks!
