Erasure to release fans’ remix of new single
20 June 2005, London: Erasure has announced they have teamed with London digital music company Digimpro to use the new di music format allowing fans to remix the single using original material. The top ten remixes by fans voted for by fans will all win prizes with the band selecting one over-all winner.
The new single Here I Go Impossible Again will be released on June 20 as part of a double A-side with All This Time Still Falling out of Love. It will be come packaged with the new di music player that gives fans the ability to edit and personalise tracks using alternative, original material that is also included with the single, and resave them as MP3 files.
Far beyond traditional remix software, di also allows for real time and randomly generated remixes using these alternative tracks. Available for both download and CD sales, the di music player can produce almost infinite variations and works on all PCs, MAC computers and digital music players.
Erasure has provided a wealth of alternative vocals, guitar, drums and bass tracks. With the almost limitless number of combinations no two are ever going to be the same, so each version is truly personal.
Andy Bell of Erasure, said: “We have been bombarded with requests to include the di music player on more singles, our fans have absolutely loved it. So we thought it would be great to give exposure to some of the better remixes of the new single and showcase the work of our fans.”
“With the di player we are able to explore our own creativity further, whilst giving fans the same ability to also get creative with the music and give it their personal touch,” he added.
Erasure’s record label, Mute, expects the releasing of the remixes will prove popular with fans.
Iain Forsyth, Digital Manager at Mute, said: "When Mute and Erasure first worked with di we had such an overwhelming response - we know the fans love the format. That's why we're delighted to be working together again. Putting remixes created by the fans on Erasure's official web site will give them great exposure and demonstrates just how effectively the di music player can be used."
Rupert Evans, Managing Director of Digimpro, the developer and owner of di, said the idea for di came from the need for a new kind of format that was for all artists and music fans.
“The computer age has given us the ability to listen to music in exciting and sophisticated new ways. So far this potential has been largely untapped, but the di format brings these new possibilities to life in a really simple way for artists and fans alike,” Evans said.
“This is the first single that will incorporate the Mac version of the di music player, so now everyone can enjoy the power of di, regardless of what computer they have,” he said.
