Tim Green’s special 8-track compilation album ‘In New Light’ on his brand new label ‘For A Memory’, celebrates his 15 years of releases. Nine artist friends and contemporaries remix their favourite tracks from Tim’s back catalogue. The result is a rich and lively diversity, both within the LP and compared to the originals.
Fifteen years of releasing music is a milestone for any artist; but through his career, Tim has established himself as a truly talented and chameleonic producer, creating emotive, genre-spanning cuts on labels like All Day I Dream, Anjunadeep, Cocoon Recordings (his acclaimed debut LP ‘Her Future Ghost’). He’s also remixed Friendly Fires, Paul McCartney, Cassius, Booka Shade, further underlining his abilities as a multi-faceted producer, whilst still amassing millions of streams on Spotify/DSPs, plus securing the top spot in Beatport’s Organic House category; from artists and tastemakers to the mainstream, Tim’s success continues to grow.
Her Future Ghost (Dave DK Remix): the remix adds a bounding beat and more vocals, half-heard dialogues adding a surreal edge to the dreamy subtle melodies of the original. By contrast, Curious Smile (Alejandro Mosso Remix) eschews the strong vocal and lyrics of the original, substituting pizzicato notes and swoony, zoomy synths with Laurie Anderson feel.
New Life (Lost Desert Remix): Lost Desert, Lee Burridge’s compadre on their shared album, brings an upbeat vibe to Green’s signature interplay of complex synth chords, the hop and skip beat pattern keeping feet moving. Dodjo (Amonita Remix) has pure pianoesque melody and breathy vocals while chords from what sounds almost like progressive rock guitar sweep in dramatically.
Among Wolves (Volen Sentir Remix), the forthcoming single: RA top rankers, Russian duo Anjei and David inject a jazzier feel to the original’s raindrop piano and more portentous synth chords, with a brisk beat and an ocean-floor-deep bass riff.
Over The Water (Tim Green & Izhevski Remix) goes for sustained vocal notes behind the beat as fanfares of horns raise the temperature, with a tranquil interlude in the breakdown. The Incident (Mathew Jonson & Quenum Remix) is a conversation you can dance to, with plangent notes in call and response mode. In Colliding (Janus Rasmussen Remix), Reykjavik’s Rasmussen also opts for a dreamy breakdown, but swaps the original’s interweaving arpeggios for a fast tap-dance of drums and fuzzy bass. One half of Faroese-Icelandic duo Kiasmos, his remix will be the second single from the LP.
‘It’s 15 years since my first record, ‘Little Flies’ on Four: Twenty music,’ Tim says. ‘I feel the nicest way to celebrate the milestone and highlight my back catalogue is via my new record label ‘For a memory’, as a home for my discography, beginning with friends and artists I love remixing their favourite tracks for this compilation album.’
