Blue Shape, a designator assigned to remixes drafted for Zander One, a close friend and talented midwestern producer. Since issuing his debut album Echoate at my Recycled Plastics imprint, back in 2012, I've remixed Zander One eight times - each subsequent attempt becoming more familiar with the details of his sound. Since my remixes adhere to a strict rule of only using the source material to construct the entire mix, Blue Shape is literally Zander One with the atoms rearranged, alchemically displaced and distilled down to forms that may not have been evident in the original tracks.
Originally collecting the three "Iceberg" remixes on a 3" CD-R, which was issued in a limited run of 16 copies when Echoate was released, Blue Shape is expanded here to a double-album length, collecting all three original "Iceberg" versions, the fifteen-minute psychedelic dub-out of "Memory Faded" (from the Echonine remix album), the seventeen-minute winter monolith excavation of "Isolation" from his Inner Horizon album, the bronzed, baroque and Cylobian take on "Hazel Canticle" (released at Shimmering Moods) and the hazy and waterlogged subtropical mix of "Waves" (released under his Endless Oceans alias). New to this set is a mammoth hour-long remix for "Dreamwave", from his newest Visions album on Sequel Sound. An edit of this mix was played during recent Z1 live sets, but the full 67-minute piece has not yet seen any form of release, until now.
CH remixing Z1 will likely not end here, with these eight mixes. Let this expanded edition stand as a milemarker in the endless white snow plains of Z1's Ohio home, and a focused study in remixing as composition. Swirling blue and white psychedelic dubs for the cooler months.
