    Cool HTDA (Remixes)

    Hello all,

    You will not find a bigger fan of TR than I, but I hadn't seen anything posted regarding the topic of "liking the remixes (people are coming up) with better than the record itself?" The Floor Factory (I think?,) Deadmau5, and now the Soft Moon "Ice Age" remixes have caught my attention more then the originals. After hearing the ideas the remixers have been coming up with I kind of wish the HTDA camp would put down the basic idea, and then outsource the parts out to others for collective input and then pick the best. That would truly be an experimental project. (It's just my opinion, but the Soft Moon remix of Ice Age is how I wish the original song (and record) sounded more like.)

    This is just my two cents, and I would love to hear others thoughts on this?
    (Also, does anyone know if the remixes will be commercially available?)

    Thanks...
    Keith

    That said, the Factory Floor remix sucked ass just like the Dave Sitek remix. What I'd like to see is a remix EP for all of An omen, in the vein of Further Down the Spiral and such.

    I like the Sitek remix. But then again I bothered to listen to it more than once.

    The two KIT remixes were on a limited-run 12" vinyl through the band's website, if you got the album on vinyl, but they're all sold out now. You can download both KIT remixes and Ice Age through soundcloud by hitting the download button, and deadmau5's one by googling "download from soundcloud" :P.

    As for a remix album, I think it would be a bit superfluous at this stage, we have 4 free remixes, I'm not sure how much more they could add to make it worthwhile buying beyond a collector's perspective.

    Well, do they really need to be sold? I think if HTDA wrapped up these four alongside a few other remixes and threw it up on their website and a bunch of other places as a free downloadable EP it'd be good press.

    Well, there's a flat rate union pay for doing remixes, so if they did a few more, they might want to sell copies just so Columbia makes its money back :P

    here's a pretty good insight into why remixes exist at this point (and i fully agree with everything that's been said) from an artist (Elite Gymnastics): http://deadgirlfriends.tumblr.com/po...culture-i-mean

    Is there a list of all the official HDTA remixes (or remixes endorsed by TR including Deadmau5's remix)?

    HTDA (remember to turn off "don't show unavailable tracks").

    And that's 4 official remixes (KIT Factory Floor and Dave Sitek, IA deadmau5 and Soft Moon), 3 official demos (the believers' Wired tracks) and one official alt version (IYLSE? film version).

    It's only showing 6 songs. I remember you having three short clips, 2 were "Verbalization" and "Instrumentation"... what was the other one? (I assume it was also from http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/05/process_song/)

    i'd like a copy of the "Is Your Love..." alternate, if it's not too much trouble. i haven't been able to find it anywhere else in decent quality.

    @sheepdean I, too, would appreciate a copy of IYLSE (film version) if it's not too much trouble.

    The Ally remix of The Spaces In Between, known officially as "Between the spaces (SONOIO rework)", just went up:

    http://hypetrak.com/2013/04/hypetrak...j-thing-remix/ In case anyone missed the new Keep it together remix, officially promoted by HTDA.

    How is everyone cataloging these in iTunes or whatever media player you use? I have the first two KIT remixes as their own EP because that's how they were physically released, and the other four grouped together under a generic "Htda remixed_" album.

    I've put them under "Soundcloud Exclusive", though partially just so I remember where they came from if someone asks me. I think the odds of a remix EP/LP are slim now that so many remixes have been released for free so there's not much chance of Sigil 5 being W3LC0M3 0BL1V10N

    Is the trailer edit of Immigrant Song considered a mix? (I know it's not related to HTDA) I think it clocks in at 01:32. Also i'd appreciate a link to the alternate version of IYLSE.

    Also, is there a better version of the soundcloud rip of the Deadmau5 remix of Ice Age?

    I consider it a [version], though it is an alt. mix (I guess director's cut?).

    And so far, no. Though you could always ask deadmau5 for one.

    Also, pm incoming.

    it really bothers me that i spent so long on these and nobody's really listening to them (but me, on endless repeat)

    anyway here are the links:

    Strings and Attractors (n30fr05t remix): http://indaba.us/pDg5
    On The Wing (n30fr05t remix): http://indaba.us/jCfT


    and, though i didn't necessarily like it more than the original it's still pretty good (basically a string quartet version with vocals)

    How Long: http://indaba.us/bC1O



    I made these for people to listen to, so i hope you enjoy them as much as i do

    peace
    dude, you already posted about them in the remix contest thread. this is the thread for official remixes.

    and i listened to them. they sounded like extremely subtly tweaked versions of the originals.

    I know this is slightly off-topic, so forgive me, but I just wanted to say: as someone who makes his own music, I totally feel your pain. But if you're enjoying them, then the mission is accomplished. It might just be that people aren't interested in hearing remixes of these tracks (I mean, frankly, a lot of people don't even seem interested in listening to HTDA, much less remixes).

    I did a remix for The Social Network contest that I thought was pretty good (http://remix.nin.com/play/mix?id=22098) but it was a) roundly ignored and b) has pretty dismal ratings from those who did listen. That was a pretty big blow to me, because I put some time into it and felt pretty proud. But, hey, I still listen to it now and then, and feel pretty good about it. The experience taught me that if I'm going to put a lot of effort into a project, it's going to be original.

    sorry about that, i deleted it
    thanks for your feedback (i was going for that with my remix for "On The Wing", but i'm not sure why you thought that about the other(s))

    anyway,
    to add to this topic,
    i loved Deadmau5's remix of Ice Age and Sonoio's version of Between the Spaces was pretty tight
    haven't really heard many of the others (at least not ones that i liked as much as/more than the originals)
