On Record Store Day, April 21, GRAMMY-winning rock band SWITCHFOOT will release a limited edition CD entitled Vice Re-Verses a remix album.
The Best of the Best worked on this project. The EP features remixes of songs from Vice Verses by Paper Route’s JT Daly, Owl City’s Adam Young, Photek, Darren King and DandJ.
JT Daly's two cuts are "The Original" and "Dark Horses."
I love how this EP starts off with a BANG!!!
You just have to turn this up!!!!!
Owl City’s Adam Young remixed "Blinding Light." Totally see this as soundtrack song.
Grammy nominated Photek remixes "Selling The News." I really love this one with it's downtempo. It's very smooth. I like all the songs, but right now at this moment, this is my favorite.
MUTHMATH'S Darren King took his harddrive of what he calls his "fishing pond of stuff" and worked on "Vice Verses" while on the road. LOVE IT!!! In listening to it, I have to wonder if Darren's "fishing pond of stuff" some old sounds from the Earthsuit days. Hmmmmmm. . .
Switchfoot's Drew Shirley and Jerome Fontamillas aka DandJ work on the last song; "The War Inside," which is my favorite songs off the "Vice Verses" LP. I was so fooled. I thought that Darren and Paul Meany of MUTEMATH had remixed this. I can't help but think that DandJ are kind of giving a kudos to their friends!! Even to the last note this has a MM sound. Totally into this track!!!
My only problem with this album is that it isn't long enough!!!
But. . . .A digital version of Vice Re-Verses will be released on May 1 and will include a remix of the band’s new single, “Afterlife,” by the winner of the Switchfoot Remix Contest sponsored by Ultimate Ears (http://www.talenthouse.com/remix-for-switchfoot). “Afterlife” is the follow-up to SWITCHFOOT’s Top 5 Modern Rock hit “Dark Horses,” which was the first single from Vice Verses.
Nice!!! Check it out!!!
