During the summer I worked with three other artists to remix some of my tracks. Here are the fabulous remixes.
Amble Skuse used elements of Babel to create a hypnotic trance remix replaying the word ‘huh’. ‘Huh’ is a universal expression that is often used instead of the word ‘what?’ The track builds up over time and to me this hypnotic ‘huh’ rhythm represents our universal feelings of confusion, repetitiveness and fear during lockdown.
Craig Howlett produced an upbeat techno version of Keep Singing. I liked the rhythm of this remix and the subtle changes in the tone of the music. It made me want to get out my old skool techno/house record collection.
Callum Perrin rehashed Do not own it // do not open it into a thoughtful ambient remix about the harshness of PIP assessments. The remix included reviews of cassette recorders found on the Argos website from claimants. These reviews, contrasted with the sound of cassette tapes rewinding and forwarding, gave the piece a very poignant tone.
