Soon after the release of Voice from the Lake on Scratch Records in 2011, Jansen got his hands on the studio stems (a sub mix of individual or groups of tracks) from David Carswell (JC/DC) and solicited a wide array of old friends, complete strangers and celebs to remix a song from VFTL. The remixes rolled in leisurely, people fell in and out of the project but somehow in the subsequent months Jansen compiled enough music for a slow party of downcast electro-rock.
The EP features a heroic deforming of Work of Art from Calgary icon Lorrie Matheson, the gloomy sex electric Can’t See Through Tomorrow from Saskatchewan’s only family band Foam Lake, a harmonically voluminous take on Inseparable by Victoria BC’s Lane Arndt (the Specialest), the all-absorbing drone distillation of Don’t See it Changin’ from mystery man Holzkopf, and a thrusty dismembered version of If It’s Meant to Be from Southern Alberta’s Cameron Dahl (CameronSound).
