Since returning from tour in April I’ve been busy quite literally cleaning house here in Toronto. Finding new places for all the clothes and kicks I picked up on the road is hard work!
All kidding aside, I’ve actually been renovating my home studio and fiddling with gear pretty much non-stop. Fortunately, my spare time has been devoted to taking in all of the great music that my friends and musical allies have been releasing this spring. Good work, everybody! So now that my working conditions have improved and my pals are just killing it musically, I’ve decided to celebrate and announce a new project!
Remix Rainbow is a six part series I’ve been working on as a thank-you to the aforementioned group of artists whose recent work has brought me a sense of newfound inspiration. I’ll be releasing one remix for free download every Tuesday until June 21st, which is also the date my debut full length Special Affections is being re-released worldwide via Astralwerks. The artwork for each remix will represent a different colour of the Diamond Rings rainbow and when compiled together they’ll make a pretty cool sonic artifact for the digital age.
I can’t tell you all of the artists involved, but I can tell you that this week’s remix is “Raw Spectacle” from the latest Miracle Fortress album Was I The Wave? which was recently released by my OGs at Secret City in Montreal. If you haven’t heard this record yet I can assure you that it is phenomenally emotive and incredibly uplifting. The fact that MF’s mastermind Graham Van Pelt is a fantastic human being and an excellent teammate on the basketball courts just seals the deal.
