EDITORS MIX IT UP FOR THE HOLIDAYS | Jackson Free Press | Jackson, MS


release iTunes exclusive Remix EP...bands and fans leak their own remixes as well. On the cusp of leaking the details to their next album (which they're currently in the midst of recording), Editors have opened the vault to their debut, The Back Room, and passed around the files to various producers, bands and their fans to take a crack at mixing it up. Sebastian, Ghislain Porier, P Nice and Prince Language came together to create Remixed, which will is available exclusively on iTunes. Bands such as Shy Child, Pase Rock, Rubber Bullets, Trackademicks, Phones and Dr. Rock The Knobs have done their own remixes as well...which are not for sale..but rather have been surfacing as streams and downloads all over the web. And to bring it to the fans, the FADER Label partnered with AcidPlanet to create a contest that allows people to do their own remix of Editors' song, "Bullets," for an opportunity to win prizes and have their version featured on the Editors' official site.

Remixed culminates an incredible 2006 for Editors. The Back Room reached the Top 3 in the UK pushing well beyond platinum; a UK Mercury Prize nomination; three sold-out US tours including stops at Coachella and Lollapalooza; and a warm embrace from American critics, blogs and fans.

Sebastian ("Camera")
Sebastian is a member of the Ed Banger crew in Paris, which also includes buzzed-about producers/DJs Justice and Medhi, as well as teen electro rapper Uffie. Along with producing original tracks and beats for his fellow Ed Bangers, Sebastian has completed remixes for the Rapture, Annie, and Cut Copy.

Ghislain Porier ("Munich")
This Montreal producer is best known for his recent album Breakupdown (Chocolate Industries), remixes for Lady Sovereign's "Fiddle With The Volume," and original electro-dancehall cuts on the Shockout label. He opened Lady Sovereign's US tour with DJ sets, and runs a popular party in MTL called Bounce Le Gros specializing in beats from around the world: dancehall, grime, baile funk, and more.

Prince Language ("All Sparks")
NYC's Prince Language rocks clubs around the world with his personalized mix of vintage disco, house, and new jams from around the world. He's released well-received mixtapes (most notably "Negroclash" with DJ Lindsey and Duane) and secretive disco re-edits, along with an official compilation for BBE, "Real Music For Real People." Last year he released two collaborations with Lindsey on vocals ("Blue Miles" and "Won't Do It") and is currently in the studio working on more originals and remixes.

P Nice ("Blood")
P Nice is one of the Certified Bananas DJs, the mash-up masters behind the hit "Sprang" mix CD and other online favorites. Originally based in Providence RI and now living in Brooklyn, P Nice's uptempo "Boston Bounce" remixes of Juelz Santana and even DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's "Summertime" were hits with selectors around the country. Along with this Editors track, P Nice has also recently lent his remixing touch to young Boston band Blanks, and is working on music with his band Miss Fairchild.
