Today my charity album ‚Recontrol – The Remix Sessions‘ is released! It presents 17 remixes by amazing artists remixing original tunes of my debut album ‚Control‘ – plus a continous mix of mine for those purchasing the entire release on selected platforms.
During the lockdown this release was initiated openly and everyone was invited to participate. Read more about the story behind the release and the track list below.
Today Bandcamp is giving their fees to the artists, too.
As a Bandcamp special, until the end of the upcoming week, buying my entire discography is dicounted with 50% and on top I will donate all profit from all sales on Bandcamp that happen in that period to Doctors Without Borders, too.
When Van Bonn gave control over the sounds of his debut album during the Corona-pandemia, everyone was invited to create a remix, no one was excluded. The idea was to get creative in a challenging period when most of us were under lockdown. This release is the result of the many contributions Van Bonn received from all over the world. All profit from these remixes will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
Since his debut album ‚Control‘ back in 2016, Van Bonn thought about the idea of a follow up remix release. The album‘s title ‚Control‘ refers to different forms of events that are connected to that term. For example: keeping control over your own life, losing self control or control due to one´s will or an unforseen event. When the Corona virus spread all over the world and the first countries went under lockdown, it seemed to be the right moment to turn the idea of the remix release into reality. Van Bonn gave up the control over his sounds.
The 17 selected contributions from 9 countries span over many facets of dubby techno: from groovy to rhythmical, reduced and layed back to forward driving, almost functional vibes. But there are also leftfield dubby excursions and an almost elektro-dub like version as well as a neo classical finale.
Thank you very much for your support and to everyone involved!
