A pic from a few months ago for my buddy/awesome rapper Alex Silas' remix album of his double disc from last year, Roots. The remix album is gonna be called Branches, and it's to be released this fall. Not only did I do a art for a single release for the track Zombeez, I also am featured on the album with a remix of the song Le Beat, I called my remix Le Beatnick. Featured in this pic is a shit ton of local talent from the Ottawa hip hop scene, can you pic em all out??alexsilas.bandcamp.com/album/i…
here's what Alex has to say about these initial sticks from Branches:"If Hip Hop is Dead......................Very excited to be dropping these brand new remixes of ZOMBEEZ feat. The Adding Machine!!! Can't think of a better day than today, the 1 year anniversary of Roots.Remixes by: GEIS†ERH∆US and Doc S∆v∆geArtwork by: Nick OG
I'm doubly excited that this is the moment I can announce a project that I've had in mind and been working on since the release last year, a full remix re-release of Roots. That project is: BRANCHES.
The idea is to flip the whole record on it's head and breathe new & different life into it. I wanted to shine a different light on these songs that have so much of my lifeblood in them and let go of the reins a bit to let someone else do their thing with the tracks. This also gave me the opportunity to work with some people that I've wanted to work with for quite some time now. I've been lucky enough to enlist the help of producers, musicians, and beatmakers that are as talented as they are eclectic. Peers, friends, inspirations, lovers.
This was an unusual hands-off approach for me but how the songs have been shaping up has really blown me away and I think the results will make for some really interesting music. This has been a privilege for me, to have my ramblings get remixed by this outstanding group of humans.
You'll hear music from:
FLOR∆ P∆LMER (f.k.a. Odcmplx Flyonthewaltz)
MATT dorgan PROJECT
The Apparition Beats
Mike Threat (Peter Parker)
Amanda Lowe W
Watch out for that Fall 2015.
