After c-c released his first album (“Muse Ick Fact Or Y“) in 2007 a few unsolicited remixes trickled in, which started this snowball rolling. The result is a collection of 36 remixes/reworkings/reinterpretations by artists from a wide variety of mostly electronic genres of c-c’s hamfistedly recontextualized & regurgitated sounds, essentially remixes of remixes. What was broken has now been pieced together in to new forms — some fixed, some further broken, the sum of the new versions eclipsing the source. This collection of remixes works as a diverse & fascinating compilation in its own right, the common source material often a loose thread that disappears from audibility altogether.
Features remixes by The Viirus, Dim Past, Undulations Marcel, Hifi Envelope, Chefkirk, Johan Ess, jde, Christopher Byler, DJ Deadfinger, SatisHouse, Local Duo, 3P1L3PT1C F1T, Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, Ghost Fields, Tom Smith, Big Whatever, Travis Johnson, Textual, Adikt, Kragle, Rauh, Oddknock, Luminous In Nummer, Cult Cosmos, Black Stabbath, Newton, Isabelle Gunn, Frog, DJ SKA, Jody Luna, Xingu, AG Davis, Bánh Mì Soundsystem, p.sparrow, & c-c.
Songs In The Key of Ⓝ serves as a compendium of many varieties of recordings, including but not limited to commissioned songs, ghost-written pieces, jingles, parodies, song poems, voicemails, personalized tracks, and crowdsourced audio. Each was collected, solicited, and otherwise produced sometime during the period of 2003-2014, but all have one common thread: Newton.
Each track is presented in its original Hi-Fi / Lo-Fi / No-fi quality.
