In the works for many years, meticulously prepared and fine-tuned by Marumari’s friends, Carpark presents the much-anticipated Marumari remix CD.
The list of remixers reads like a who’s who of Marumari’s IM buddy list: Electric Company (Tigerbeat6), Robert Lippok (from to Rococo Rot), Casino vs. Japan (Wobblyhead, City Centre offices, and future Carpark recording artist), Lackluster (Defocus), Cex (Tigerbeat6), Greg Davis (Carpark), L’usine (Isophlux, Hymen), Octopus Inc. (Kracfive), Stars As Eyes (Tigerbeat6), and Colongib (Kracfive). The CD also includes the ever-popular “Baby M” music video (which made its way onto MTV2 last year), a short video piece about Marumari’s dog Bacon (with remixed audio by Miami’s o9), and mp3s from Vim, Kettel (Planet-Mu), Multiplex, Buddy System, Phluidbox, Yuppster (8 bit peoples), Proem (Merck), Thug (Defocus), and Atomly (Atomiq).
There’s something on the remixes for everyone. Casino vs. Japan turns Marumari into a blissful sonic haze, Greg Davis reinterprets Marumari with his arsenal of acoustic instruments, and Electric Company strips Marumari down to the basics: a melody, a rhythm, and a wolf’s howl. The remixes will definitely keep you happy until Marumari finishes up their next LP and epic science fiction novel.
