Richie Egan aka Jape has remixed a track from the Swedish artist Badlands’ remix project, where the musician has asked her pals to take a track from recent album Call To Love, and rework it.
Badlands is Swedish producer, composer and sound designer Catharina Jaunviksna, and the 8-track album was released in November on the RITE label.
Jape is the third in the series of remixers, with Odd Nosdam and Art Feynman preceeding.
Jape’s remix of ‘My time will come..’? has some warm electronics and synth work recognisable to the the origin project, as it takes the album’s opening track in a new direction.
“Jape’s genre-bending interpretation of the LP’s lead track is eerie and raw, clearly inspired by acts such as later Aphex Twin & Autechre,” says Jaunviksna.
“This remix project is my way of bringing some of my favorite independent, primarily electronic, music makers together in a bouquet of Badlands interpretations. I’ve purposely asked people with widely different and distinct sounds. People that inspire me.”
The remixes of the album touch on kraut, hiphop, electronica, psychedelia, house, dub and italo.
