As i've posted previously, i have a new album of remixes due for release very soon (10th June to be exact). I had the idea to curate a remix album for WABHOW, ever since this the album came out in 2012. But it's only when i started touring the album, that this idea slowly became a reality. Most the artist involved in the project are like-minded artists that i've met through playing shows with, but also artists who i've never met who i reached out to because i liked their work. I feel honoured that all these talented artists agreed to be involved in this project. I love remixes because it allows someone to come along a take something that took you a long time to assemble, to break it down and take a completely fresh approach on your work, with no strings attached.
The album also contains a few original productions by myself. At the time of writing WABHOW, i spent a lot of time trying different ideas and taking tracks in different directions. All this experimentation generated lots of spare ideas, sketches and recordings. Many of these never made it onto the finished album. Not necessarily because they were uninteresting, but maybe because i felt they didn't quite fit the project at the time. So rather than confine them to an archive on a hard drive, i thought i should spruce them up a little as little skits - or offcuts - in between the actual remixes. In that way this remix project retains a little more of the Little People DNA.
I'm very happy with the way this record came to be and how it sounds. I hope you enjoy it too!
