Image: 1582256 It’s something of tradition for Tosca to get their albums remixed. Indeed, they once released a record comprised entirely of 13 mixes of
one song, 2002’s ‘Different Tastes Of Honey’, variations on ‘Honey’ from 1999’s ‘Suzuki’. It’s a way of keeping things fresh, injecting some
uncertainty into proceedings, knocking things out of balance in order to check how they should be re-aligned.
After releasing 'odeon' earlier this year, tosca comes back with 'tlapa the odeon remixes'. 'tlapa' meaning, This Life Arouses Pure Adventure.
This will be release August 2013.
The first person the pair approached was New York producer Brendan Moeller, who remixed ‘Bonjour’, turning it into a muted soundscape of
drifting synths and keening strings that slowly warms as a bubbling riff fades in. The choice of remixer for ‘Stuttgart’ was a case of obvious connections. The track already had a bit of a Latin feel thanks to guest Lucas Santtana from Brazil.
Other reworks come from Silver City, two guys from from Buenos Aires who live in London. They apply an ’80s twist to ‘Johnny Waters’.
LTJ Experience, an alter ego on Italian producer Luca Trevisi from Bologna, turns in an atmospheric interpretation of ‘Meixner’. Perhaps
the most unusual remix is AFG’s version of ‘Cavallo’, which sees spoken word passages thrust to the fore. “That’s definitely the most
leftfield,” agrees Dorfmeister.
If ‘Odeon’ was the sound of a band at the top of their game, still relevant after two decades, then the remix album shows they’re still on
top of the music scene, pulling together well-judged names, old and new, to give their distinctive sound an equally distinctive twist.
