Even before we started Thisisnotanexit Records Optimo were a huge inspiration and getting Keith to remix the first single we put out was a dream come true. And then in 2009 we put out a release by Jonnie Wilkes / Naum Gabo's project. A limited 12" featuring a remix from Joakim and two Naum Gabo edits of a 23 minute remix that Tim Goldsworthy (The Loving Hand/DFA) had done.
The original version was never released.
And the 23 minute version was never released. Until now.
Its an epic sprawling remix in 6 parts which starts like the closing credits to Blade Runner and featuring snippets of distant echoing voices before a different voice intones "We are change. We are no longer the same" and that staple DFA-esque rhythm comes to the fore.....6 minutes in we hit a low slung punk funk disco bass...9 and half minutes in and it zones out to a strings and synth melancholic interlude interspersed with bubbling acid before it charges into what seems like a completely different track and bassline.....evil laughter.....a guitar solo....a female vocal....HEY!....the last 6 minutes of pure piano house hands in the air joy that sounds like the brother and sister to Westbam's Old School Baby.
I played this at Optimo when I was lucky enough to be asked by Keith and Jonnie to DJ there and people lost their shit to this.
I'm putting this up for a weeks....get it before I take it down.
Its unmastered and from the Thisisnotanexit unreleased vaults (aka a battered harddrive of remixes and demos). Enjoy.
We are change.
We are no longer the same.
released December 12, 2016
Additional production and remix by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA)
