Nobska Remixes

by scutopus

  • Streaming + Download

    Purchasable with gift card




Herein lies a collection of remixes exclusively made with my foghorn field recordings found on "Nobska". It begins with subtle, textured beauty, ends with epic majesty, and in between takes you on a journey past marine pirate radio stations, creepy octopus' gardens, a deranged jellyfish dance party, and a sea monster or two. We've got some solid beats, some tonality bordering on melody, and plenty of delicious dark drone. Even with the intentionally limited source material these remixes have a variety I would not have imagined, yet thanks to the same limit they cohere well.

***If you, too, would like to remix Nobska's foghorn field recordings, you may. I would like to keep this going as long as there is interest. Use *only* Nobska as source material, manipulate it however you like. Make it available online for free download with a link back to this page. Let me know it's up and I'll add a link to its page from right here. Have fun! I look forward to what may come.

The first post-release remix is in! In fact, it had been finished way before the release date, but due to a series of mishaps it had been lost until now. Enjoy "devolution" by underthetale: soundcloud.com/underthetale/20111206-nobska-4

And here is the second remix, done by Bodie, currently drumming with Infantephant, and who used to drum in (and remix) Time of Orchids. He has made a remix which might actually lead you to headnod. It also has some tasty tonal interactions. Check it out for yourself: bodiesremixpage.bandcamp.com/track/at-sunset-scutopus-nobska-remix

Two more remixes, this time from Classic Beats: Machinery remixer Tom Shad: one an atmospheric one with sense of space, and the other which has a lovely, glassy quality to it. tomshad.bandcamp.com/album/nobska-remixes
