Remixing Everything Seems Like The Best Option by The Day After The Last Crime as remixed by Imperium Nova
01 - Falcon in the Gloomy Sky (Space Flight Mix by Bart Nova)
02 - Destroying Everything Seems Like The Best Option (Desintegration Funk by Alien Kontenaaier)
03 - The Last Days (Dark Summer Mix by Alex Kontra)
This little EP contains 3 songs by german post-rock band The Day After The Last Crime, remixed by 3 members of Imperium Nova. The original versions of the tracks originally appear on TDATLC's first Demo, and all 3 remixes also appear on their Remix EP. As you might have guessed, the title of our remix EP is inspired by track 2 from the demo.
The first track is Bart Nova's spacey rework of Falcon In The Gloomy Sky, in a style that combines ambient atmospheres, groovy downtempo beats, and progressive trance synths. Pretty epic, if I say so myself ;)
Next is Alien Kontenaaier's remix of Destroying Everything Seems Like The Best Option. It's the only remix of the 3 that actually uses sounds from the original. Surprisingly, it's not the guitars that where sampled, but in fact the drums, cut up to make some funky electro-breaks. The track has a rather unexpected switch in style when it reaches its climax, announced by an appropriate vocal sample. I'm not going to ruin the surprise though, so you'll have to check it out for yourselves...
And finally, there is the Alex Kontra remix of The Last Days (Summer Epic Part 2). After an ominous sounding intro, the tracks moves into dark trance/hard trance territory. Out of the 3 remixes, this one is probably the most club-compatible.
In related news: The Day After The Last Crime have recently released 2 new EPs with new songs, and I'm pleased to announce that they have invited us to once again provide remixes! Hopefully they'll turn out at least as good (hopefully even better) as the first batch :)
And here is a little ongoing project:
Random Remixes by Imperium Nova
A collection of remixes made by Imperium Nova-artists, from various sources.
01 - Xyloblast - 精神 (Clubminded Mix by Bart Nova)
02 - Corroded Master - Last Truths (Instrumental Lies Mix by Alex Kontra)
This is not really an album in the usual sense of the word, since this release is not complete. We intend to add more remixes to this collection when we finish them, or when we recover them from the Imperium Nova archives. And since we have more than 3000 finished and unfinished tracks scattered across various hard drives, that could take a while...
Anyway, the release currently contains 2 remixes:
The first is Bart Nova's club/trance remix of 精神 ("Seishin") by Xyloblast, which also appears on Xylo's album You Mean Love!?.
Secondly, there is Alex Kontra's instrumental remix of Last Truths by Corroded Master, turning the track into a dark electro/hard trance-hybrid (in triplet timing!).
When I add more tracks to the collection, I'll most likely mention it on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BartNova - so make sure to like the page so you can stay updated on our productions, and find links to our downloadable tracks!
