ECCODEK - Remixtasy (Big Mind Records : Interchill Independent)
OUT NOW !!!!! With Remixtasy, Eccodek invites a tastemaker's list of remixers and producers to re-imagine tracks from the Canadian global fusion band's first 3 releases. Putting Canada on the map with their forward thinking blend of dub, funk, tribalism and cinematic electronica, Eccodek flips thescript on its signature sound by turning a pack of musical alchemists loose on tracks from More Africa in Us, Voices Have Eyes and the Juno-nominated (Canada's Grammy's) Shivaboom.
This sprawling, 14-track opus moves from dub, funk, techno, reggae, lo-fi electro to Middle-Eastern, Afrobeat, Rockers, Asian Massive and beyond. Trailblazers like Transglobal Underground.....Six Degrees' Jef Stott.....Dubmatix.....EarthRise SoundSystem.....Real World's Syriana .....Adham Shaikh rub shoulders with fresh sounds from Sub Swara's Sharmaji.....Four80East.....Delhi 2 Dublin's Tarun Nayar and Rise Ashen.
Eccodek mainman Andrew McPherson even works up 2 radical redubs from the first album - an Afrobeat throwdown and a sensuous steppers dub odyssey. About the Band Over a 10 year career, Eccodek has amassed an impressive list of achievements - a 2009 Juno nomination 2 Canadian Music Awards (Best World Group), performed in London, England's Trafalgar Square before 5,000 people, appeared on Buddha Bar 9, hit #2 on CMJ's New World Chart and represented Canada in National Geographic's GeoRemix project, joining Karsh Kale, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Nortec Collective and Antibalas.
