When I approached Axs to ask him to produce a remix for the Cedar Mast remix effort, I didn't expect him to enjoy mixing the source material to such a degree that he'd generate remixed versions of every song on the original album. Like me, Axs is a very prolific creator when he becomes fascinated with a sound or an idea, and so it only felt appropriate to section off these five remixes for a proper release. The interesting thing is that, when considered as a whole, Axs' five remixes present the source material in such a newly configured and colorful way that what we're hearing is essentially a new album, conceived in both the Coppice Halifax and Axs universes. It is not surprising, then, that Axs and I went on to work more closely on several other projects, all of which will hopefully be released in the coming months. For now, listeners can enjoy the stimulating sounds of Cedar Mast, re-tooled by Axs into a fantastic techno album with both dub and dancefloor influences.
