My last full length album was released in May (The Horrorist, Joyless Pleasure). Before this year is up I will release a remixed version. All the remixes are in and I hope to finalize the artwork this weekend and get it off to download stores and the CD duplicator. I put together a quick sampler of some of the mixes above. Everyone did a great job including some readers of this blog.
1. I Stand with You – Haujobb remix
2. Modern – Steinkind remix
3. Love Sick – Tomas Tulpe remix
4. We Will Get Wicked – Miss Duckin’ remix
5. I Stand with You – Raytrace remix
6. Hostage – Miro Pajic remix
7. I Stand with You – Millimetric Remix
There’s more… more remixes on the download album/CD when it is released later this year!

Now that I’ve finished my album I am putting together the same album full of remixes. Instead of paying 20 people to do remixes for me I am trading a remix of my own for one of theirs. This serves three purposes. I don’t have to shell out a bunch of cash. It forces me to work on material that’s not my own which I find a challenge. Lastly, every remix I do for someone else gets promoted by that artist therefore extending my own name into the world. I know this is obvious but maybe this post will trigger you to go trade with your friends, fans and if your lucky music heros. This weekend I am finishing remixes for Haujobb and Steinkind. See how they just got some free press?
“A remixer uses audio mixing to compose an alternate master recording of a song, adding or subtracting elements, or simply changing the equalization, dynamics, pitch, tempo, playing time, or almost any other aspect of the various musical components. Some remixes involve substantial changes to the arrangement of a recorded work, but many are harmonic, such as creating a “vocal up” version of an album cut that emphasizes the lead singer’s voice.” – Wikipedia
