Gritty, warm, gnarly and at times quite beautiful; “Remixes, reboots and alternative versions” is both a remix- and original effort from first time collaborators Abstract Artform. Mumbles and Co-pilot.
“Remixes…” started out as just what it sounds like; a remix album. Using a microphone, a loop-pedal and one 15-watt amplifier Mumbles put together rough remixes of tracks lifted off his friend, Winnipeg prairie-rapper Abstract Artform’s album “As the Crow Flies”. Enter Co-pilot; with who’s sincerely dope and playful cuts, amongst other additions to the mixes, the sound of the album broadened.
What started out as a simple and rough remix album soon bloomed into a dynamic and diverse folk-blues-hip-hop-album and the random collaboration turned into a three-piece project with thought out plans for the future. The track list contains both alternative versions of previously released songs by Abstract Artform, and original – previously unreleased songs made by Crows: as a three-piece.
On December 10th Crows: released their first video for the song “As the Crow Flies”. The track is a down to earth tale of family, love and the circle of life. (link for video can be found at bottom)
