Massive AttackHappy Solstice!!!

Today is the longest day of the year, and we are spending it deep in a whirlpool of brainstorming. So many exciting projects and concepts are being hatched, and while we are being Mad Scientists in the Labs, we wanted to share another little piece of music:

The Massive Attack Remix is here and ready for your ears and bodies to consume!!!

One of the most influential bands in the ‘trip hop’ universe (and well beyond), this remix has been unfinished for over 10 years. I first played it at Burning Man in 2000, and as many of my hybrid mashup creations, it has constantly evolved. As with any customized edit it has taken so many variations from uber-deep hypnotic eyes-closed moments to crazy jump-up 10 feet high bounce sessions. This version kind of goes both ways, and includes a sizzling lazer synth over loco 808 bass and an additional vocal dedicated to the heat of summer time. As with all these mash up edits, it is a gesture of respect to musicians who have inspired me, i hope you enjoy it at some moment in the future.

Thanks to Lia for splicing together some of the dopest video content of the past 3 weeks of mayhem! We really appreciate you guys sharing your photos and video with us, it gives me goosebumps to feel it from your perspective, and verse vica. As i said before every one of these last shows has been almost intolerably hot, i have left the stage soaked to the skin and headrushed off of boiling adrenaline, and somehow the energy is just building and getting more intense every time – THAT IS BECAUSE OF YOU!!!! THANK YOU FOR SHARING! It is like a live social experiment every time, and it is constantly blowing my mind.
