My producer Carl Rosamond agreed to Black Star Liner remixing one of my tracks “Your chosen one is coming”
I didn’t know what to expect and when I got back the remix I was blown away by the end result. Its radically different to anything I have done before, more like Stones Roses meets Talking Heads! Black Star Liner was favoured by John Peel back in the day and also nominated for a Mercury Music Award. BST is known for creating fantastic captivating beats and I’m super happy with the remixes.
Here’s the video of the first track below
There will be an album “Year of the Bat Cat” released in May 2023 with the fantastic Bat Cat graphic created by Sarah Patrick.
The first single will be “Nothing here sounds good” which is a great pop song. The Code E1 material will be released via Green Eyed Records on all digital platforms as well as a physical product. We originally recorded 34 tracks and picked 10 for the final album. This is a fascinating project with a massive sonic range of diverse material and in my opinion is the most commercial music I have released to date.
During the covid period BST would send over tracks each week and I was always fascinated by what would turn up. What I love about this remix project is that I never knew what would appear my end. This is also a great example of creativity through collaboration which of course is the central ethos of Green Eyed Records.
The Year of the Bat Cat – available on Bandcamp & all digital platforms
