Telafonica – Heartbeatings For Those With Heartbeats remix

Telafonica cover


If you’re still reading this… well, thanks for not deleting me from your RSS reader. I still have dreams of resurrecting this blog, and one day it will hopefully happen.

Usually in the past I’ve posted here when I’ve done music work and I’m still active in that capacity from time to time – but I just realised I never noted the remix I did for Telafonica. They’re an amazing Sydney band who I’ve mentioned before a long time ago and have since become good friends.

They recently released an album called Sleeping With The Fishermen, which is excellent. The release occurred alongside a (very) ambitious project to release a remix EP for every track on the album once a month. The number of incredible Sydney acts that turned out to release it was staggering – featuring names like Scissor Lock, Jono Boulet, Option Command, Dave McCormack, Sounds Like Sunset and many more.

Amongst that very impressive list of artists is little ol’ me. I hadn’t finished a remix in a long while, so this kind of came from nowhere. Had a huge amount of fun actually: turning up the monitors super loud and make a lot of noise around a really wonderful melody.

Have a listen, see what you reckon! But listen to the others too, because they’re better.

Old news: Ships remixed

A few people have mentioned that it slipped under the radar a little, so what the hey:

Once upon a time, The Basics made a great single. It was called With This Ship. I remixed it. It got released on their Like A Brother EP last month. The end.

If you want to take a listen to said remix, have a crack at this stream:

    Will it Blend? The Wooden Spoon Project

    Sure, you’ve all watched the iPod getting some blender treatment, but all our humble little blender is capable of in the arcane world of inappropriate blending activity is wooden spoons.

    Still, it does that with remarkable efficiency.

    Made a good mess too.
