Blue Vitriol at The Press Club in Sacramento - Sunday, July 1

1/2 of Blue Vitriol will be doing a set this Sunday in Sacramento with our friend Resynthesize and the Escape Artists crew. It's Josh's one year wedding anniversary (congratulations!) so he's got better things to do, and I'll be playing solo. I'm planning to spin equal parts our material and my never-before-heard-in-public mashup dubstep dancehall insanity. If you're in the area - or if you enjoy driving - we'd love it if you came out.

Remix: Blue Vitriol - Summer Will Never Come Again

We participated in the Medl remix contest for our friends at the netlabel Vocoid. Medl released the component tracks for their album Medly on the excellent CCMixter, and we chose my favorite, their breezy Summer Came Late This Year.

The rules stipulated that our remix use 50% content from their track. Our remix is comprised entirely of material from the original, except for a new subbass line. We processed the hell out of the samples, slowing everything down, making the beat gritty and dark, employing a healthy amount of cutup trickery and digital glitching. The result is more of a recomposition than a straight remix, teasing a new melody - suggested by the shape of the melody in the original - out of the sounds that were already there.
