Oceandrift – out now

The latest offering from the 64 bar collective is now on Bandcamp, available as a name your own price download.

Oceandrift is a remix chain. What the hell is a remix chain?

Kelp explained: “A remix chain is the process of a second artist remixing a track delivered to them by the first artist, and then passing the stems of the remixed track onto a third artist, and so on. Eventually, the penultimate person passes their remixed stems back around to the original artist, who remixes all the remixes in one track to complete the chain”

Geddit?

“The results are astounding, considering each part of the chain only hears the previous track,” said Kovas, from 64 bar music.

“This is a bit of a break from the norm for 64bar, as the tracks aren’t constrained by the normal parameters of tempo or length.

Oceandrift is a marvelous journey from the opening track, which floats underwater, through hard-edged electronic noise and leading-edge progressive sounds. You can get it right now, here

64 bar goes global with Olympic mix

64 bar music calling on beat-makers from around the world to participate in Olympic sized production project.

With the world’s largest sporting occasion coming up this summer  64 bar music are putting together a soundtrack for the games that reflects the passion of sport and its inherent link with the joy of music.

“We wanted to mark the Olympics with a mix that defined how people were moved by sport, and what the Olympics means to them,” said label head Pete Griffin.

“The music that is made will reflect the feelings we have when we watch sport. It might be joy through victory, or the melancholy taste of defeat.

“There could be the essence of hope in the music, a sense of pride, of determination, or of drive.

The 64 bar music concept began in 2009, and since then, the label has self released seven albums, three EP’s and an album on big-hitting indie label Ninja Tune.

They have released music from artists based in China, Canada, Chilie, The US, Australia, Germany, Belgium, France, the UK and more, and with over 150 countries participating in the games in London and Cardiff this project is their most ambitious yet.

“We’re calling for submissions today,’ said Griffin. “Tunes have to be sent in by the end of the closing ceremony on August 12, 2012.

“There is no restriction on style or tempo, but tracks must be 64 bars in length,” he added.
