On April 6, @GravityKillsSTL posted the tracks for Guilty, for anyone to remix.

It's only taken me 2 1/2 months to remix it.

Enjoy. (This may be my only musical output for 2011.)

Holy crap!
People seemed to dig it.

Transcript from the completely distorted clip Mike recorded on his iPod:

Mike: My iPod's recording right now. This is at the DNA right now, dude. At the show. They're playing your shit.
Billy?: Fuckin' a. Go Aki!
Mike: All right dude, I don't want to stand here looking like an idiot.

Sweet.

Speaking of, I wrote, recorded, and mixed down that entire remix in Reason 4... after chopping up the vocals in ReCycle. I have a shit ton of gear that's not being used right now. I'm going to give it some time to see, but I foresee some gear churn in the not too distant future. 'Cause there are new toys I want to play with.

Aki: Have you seen the APC 40? I haven't tried it, but that thing might let me play all the loops myself while I'm soloing.
Aaron: (laughing) You really don't want to deal with anyone else, do you?
Aki: ... No. No, I really don't.

[edit] Still really proud of being part of this cd, especially this remix. This is a rare and precious thing.

Work has [re]begun on the Slave Unit remix album. We just passed Mike's "The Hammer!" deadline for remix submissions. I managed to sidestep mastering duties; Chris has been pressed into duty there.

Shawn's remix kicked my ass.

I finished version 24 of Go this past weekend and submitted it; then Chris asked for my Etched remix as well. When I sent that I noticed the timestamp on it was from March, 2008. Oops. This is how projects take forever to finish.

We're throwing cover ideas around over email... it'll probably be something simple.

Mike's only planning on pressing a couple hundred physical copies. We'll see how that goes.
