It’s been a while in the making, but I’ve finally pulled together enough ideas that I feel comfortable starting to release my latest project, life.remixed into the wild.
“life.remixed” started several years ago as a general brand for the site(back when you probably weren’t the ardent listener you surely are now). I’ve found a renewed interest in the ideas around it, and I’ve been developing some general ideas about making an album around the concept. Much of the material will be based around everyday perceptions and our experience here on Earth. This project is a back-to-basics approach to electronic music, with an intent on being approachable yet consistent with the “Karl D/randombeats.com Sound”.
It’s fairly uncommon that I release artwork with my albums, mostly because I personally don’t really have much talent in that regard. However, a few times a year, my graphic design skills prime my creative capacity enough to sit down and crank out something mediocre. This time I had a concept in mind, and the artwork was simple enough that I could do it on my own. So, as a special preview, here’s the artwork for life.remixed(click for larger size):
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the cover bears some resemblance to Existential Funk. In some ways, this album is the “true sequel” to it(in a way that recent EP releases are not), and shares some of the same general concepts.
Stay on the lookout over the next several days for the first track from life.remixed. Lots more content will be on the way soon, and will be the focus of this site for the near future. Please see below for a downloadable alternate cover you can use as your computer’s wallpaper. See also the original life.remixed image from 2004!
