So I have been carrying an idea around with me since last year… it’s time for it to be let out of the depths of my mind, and aired for you all to hear: The Circle Project
Rather than do a standard remix album or a CD full of covers, the concept is to create a closed circle of remixes. Artist A reinterprets Artist B, Artist B does Artist C, and Artist C does Artist A, thus creating a circle. The tracks are selected by the label rather than the bands, solely with the intention of creating a full concept of an album or EP, rather than a random set of tracks.
The bands/artists are given their tracks and the only boundary they have to remain in is that the reinterpreted track is recognisable as the original. Apart from that, they have a completely free hand to excercise their creativity as they see fit.
