Nine remixes of Apparat Organ Quartet’s ”Pólýfónía” hit the streets 27 February
In 2011, their second album Pólýfónía received critical acclaim across the board and on the heels of its success Apparat Organ Quartet will release selected remixes from Pólýfónía.
On 27 February nine remixes from acclaimed collaborators will hit the streets presenting interpretations of the Icelandic group’s most successful release so far. The remixers include Dreamtrack, Robotaki, Bloodgroup, FM Belfast, and Reptilicus.
First up is Foals producer and avid remixer Dreamtrak, who already premiered his Pet Shop Boys-influenced remix of “Konami” over at Drowned in Sound.
After that comes soon-to-be-released producer Robotaki, who recently held the #2 spot on Hype Machine upon claiming first prize in a DJ Shadow remix contest. Robotaki takes his experience from bootleg remixing Daft Punk and Phoenix and turns his eyes towards “123 Forever”.
Fellow Icelanders FM Belfast remixes “Konami” and if one has experienced a live concert with the group, the kinship with Apparat Organ Quartet presents itself in obvious ways.
Also contributing is Danish elitist pop rockers Beta Satan, who took a break from family and student activities to tear apart and put back together Cargo Frakt ending up with their “Cargo Frakt (Beta Satan Shred to Pieces cover)”. A track that will make you want to revisit their album “Girls”.
Finally, Icelandic electro pop artists Bloodgroup, Danish producer Thomas Troelsen and none other than italo disco connoisseur Flemming Dalum give their versions of “Konami”.
Closing out the remix album is Frederik Schikowski interpreting ”Söngur Geimunglingsins” and industrial pioneers Reptilicus with their dark remix of “Síríus Alfa”.
