It was an honour to be asked by Audio Obscura to provide a remix for one of his tracks in this Self Isolation Tapes project, where he tried to make sense of the Covid-19 lockdown between March and April 2020 in the UK.
I was fortunate to meet Neil in Norwich back in 2018, when we both performed at a Naviar Haiku Fest, we exchanged tapes and had a good chat, keeping more or less in touch after that.
I got asked to remix the track named “One day I’ll grow nostalgic for these days”, which is an equal parts beautiful as well as ominous exercise on sampladelia, turntablism and radio art. My remix picked up some hidden sounds in the track stems and turned them into protagonists, while keeping the radio art flair of the original work. This was my first remix ever, and what a great experience it was!
You can stream and purchase whole album here: Self Isolation Tapes.
And this is my track:
Hope you like it! And if you do, support Audio Obscura!
