Ahead of a busy festival season, Sinkane have announced a deluxe edition of their remarkable album Mars following its success last November. The new edition is out on June 21 through City Slang and includes a variety of remixes.
When Sinkane released the critically acclaimed Mars, one of the original ideas was to take this work to another dimension and find a remix for each song. This was inspired in part by the stellar mix done by Ahmed’s friend Dan Snaith, aka Daphni (Caribou). Before they knew it, the band were swimming in new sounds, jaw-dropping mixes by Monkeytown flagships P.hono and Benjamin Damage, west coast dub-vibes from Sun Araws Duppy Gun project, psychedlic acid treatment by Africaine 808, retro futuristic house filter from Ostgut heroes Barker and Baumecker and much, much more.
There were so many remixes in fact, that the band decided to put it all together as a special edition. Mars (Deluxe Edition) comes complete with 15 remixes in total, plus the original album. For the first time this edition collects all available remixes as well as six new and unreleased remixes by Helado Negro, Kissey, LBC Soundsystem, Dungeonesse (aka: Jen Wasner from Wye Oak and Jon Ehrens) and DFA studio friends Tippy Toes.
One of the brand new remixes from the forthcoming release has been revealed today. Swedish producer Kissey transforms the already incredible track Lady C’mon and takes it to a whole new level with intoxicating house-beats and sci-fi sounds. You can hear the Kissey remix of Lady C’mon here.
