So, many people have been asking about doing a remix mix, so lets do it.
We might as well start at the start so first up, we’ll be remixing tracks from the first 64bc, from June 2009 @ 108 bpm.
Anyone can enter, and we’ll get the stems up soon. It’s possible we could put all the samples from all the tracks into one big zip file for a mashed up soup approach.
No point in stifling creativity now is there.
Here’s the facts:
Track Length: 64 bars.. or extend out to 128 or 192
Tempo: 108 bpm
Deadline for confirming you want in is 1 Jan 2010.. then we’ll get cracking
TRACKS YOU CAN REMIX
Kovas – God‘s Plan
Proof of Concept – How to feel (nothing)
Jose B – Down With the funk
James++ Cromulent Formula
Bobby Corridor – Sinner

Proof Of Concept
Let’s remind ourselves of this gem from Kovas from last year. It’s a selection of works from kovas’ vaults from 2006-2009, and is a electronic flow through the darklands of his imagination.
He says: “I look at Timeframe as my long overdue debut album. It’s 17 tracks, including a few interludes that I had been working on for a couple of years, here and there. It got to a point where I realised I had a body of work which was coherent enough to put out as a single piece.
“The mood is mostly sinister, and at times downbeat. For some reason I just don’t tend to write euphoric, or uplifting songs. I like the darkness, I like tunes to have space to breath and I think that comes through in this.
Standout tracks include True Force and the Blanket, both from 2006.
Kovas says: “I suppose The Blanket was me testing out a mood than some would describe as post dubstep, its a real nightcrawler and has tons of atmosphere. ”
There are a few tracks on the mix that made it onto other projects. Cutt (track 6) featured on the 13 Point Shuriken Hur this (track 12) was on Benevolent Beats and God’s plan (track 3) was on 64:1
Remi aka Remdog aka Roughe thanked the lord after he won the Renderyard Best Documentary prize. “Thanks to you all – and God” – he told the peeps on ntf
The video below earned him and his cohort Timid the prize. Here’s the scoop, taken from their vimeo page “The Ghostvillage Project was created over 3 days on the west coast of Scotland. 6 artists – Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm – were given free reign to paint in an abandoned 1970s village. Working together on huge collaborative walls and individually in hidden nooks and crannies all over the site the artists realised long held dreams and were inspired by the bleakness and remoteness of the site. Drawing on the history of the village the artists’ stated intent on completion of the project was to populate the ghostvillage with the art and characters that it deserved.”
Pretty amazing project, and how cool would it be to paint an abandoned village. Impressive.
