Description

It became obvious that Pride And Fall's last album "Of Lust And Desire" was lacking mainly one issue that set it apart from their three competitive predecessors: a good club hit. While their first albums "Nephesh", "Elements Of Silence" and the classic "In My Time Of Dying" were plastered with competitive clubhits, the Norwegian trio chose a more moody approach for their fourth longplayer. To offset this shortcoming, the band started a remix contest earlier this year, and made remix files of their song "Turn The Lights On" available. More than 50 skilled remixers and a handful of DJs took the opportunity and used their creativity to carve something new out of the song. Pride And Fall's keyboarder/programmer Per Waagen remembers the process: "We were surprised about the general quality of the mixes. The top 25 was really usable, the Top 5 of the mixers were very strong. We had spent money on remixers before, but these people created something extraordinary from our song without getting paid, which was absolutely stunning. The three top mixes, which we ended up using for the E.P. were among the best remixes we heard in a long time. And they were from all over the world." The Ukrainian industrial duo Ginger Snap5 took first place with a forceful deconstruction of the original song. Ginger Snap5 had won several remix contests before. The other winning mixes are constructed by Mexican DJ team/remixer Ricardo String ft. E.R.R.A. and the talented US-industrial outfit Ruined Conflict. Linked with Pride And Falls own remix of the title track and the exclusive B-Side "As I Carve", this EP will turn to be a forceful assault on industrial clubs worldwide!
