The festival season is firmly in swing, Christmas is nearly here and if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, chances are you’re probably rugging up inside due to the cold. But in the Southern Hemisphere it’s a different story and, in Australia in particular, the hot summer is setting in, bringing with it the massive summer festivus season.
It is in this party spirit that Open Records is giving our fans both at home and abroad a special Christmas treat in the shape of Fiord’s Keen String Remixes EP, featuring 7 top tracks including four winners from our remix competition earlier this year. The end result was almost overwhelming and with over 200 entries from all corners of the globe, we decided the standard was so high to declare four equal winners in a variety of styles to join Open Records artists GMJ and Eegor on our final release for 2009.
Canadian‐born, Melbourne‐based producer Timothy Allan immediately impressed with his sophisticated melodic progressive house interpretation, while another Melbourne producer, Blinky, also proved he is a name to watch with a driving progressive techno bomb. Mexico’s Interactive Noise caught our ear with a big outdoor festival stormer, while New Zealand act Opiou rounds the EP off in spectacular style with a glitch, bass‐heavy broken beat monster that has been tried and tested at events all over the globe.
Open Records are proud to work with these exciting artists and thanks everyone for their efforts in the Keen String Remix Competition.
