To shed new light on three of the band’s tracks, the label has craftily pieced together an international cast of electronic artists capable of reinterpreting the psychedelic and free jazz influences of the project for the dance floor. The resultant reworks give the tracks solid functionality while staying faithful to the band’s influences and standing firmly within the label’s ethos.
On first drop Secret Circuit’s penchant for melodic, euphoric sounds meets Free Tech head on, the LA producer’s trippy, driving remix focuses on fine-tuning and blending the more musical elements and vocals, with kaleidoscopic results.
Former band mate and Rub n Tug’s very own Tom of England turns the package on its head and drops a mechanical, Balearic meets Punk take on Wild Joy. Turning things off the beaten dance floor trail, the mix is as blissful as it is claustrophobic.
Trus’me is an artist who knows a thing or two about the collaborative aspect of the remix, he is also a man whose continually evolving creative process make his remixes so unpredictable and vital. Currently exploring spaced out dance floor dynamics, the experienced Manchester producer puts a Detroit spin on Klerin Priest, turning in a slice of broken electro funk with a distinct UK flavor.
London-based Ivan Smagghe has long been a proponent of industrial sleaze and brings his vast experience to bear on his chugging, restrained, ‘Crossed’ remix of Klerin Priest. The Frenchman’s ‘Ghetto’ mix is even more reduced and touches on the now resurgent minimal sound. With musical cycles once again aligning towards a more stripped back, tripped out approach, both mixes tap into the essence of Smagghe’s undeniable, electro-leaning influence on the darker dance floors of today.
All four producers twisted, experimental and driving effort’s ensure that all of TV Baby’s musical ethos is explored across six varied and divergent tracks.
