Published Mar 13, 2014Phonetically self-explanatory duo Saxsyndrum released their album Future Circus back in the fall, and now the Montreal instrumentalists have treated it to a remix album. Fairground: Future Circus Remixed will be launched with a show at Montreal's Le Cagibi on March 22, and it's available to stream ahead of time on Exclaim.ca.
Saxsyndrum features Nick Schofield on drums and synths and Dave Switchenko on saxophone. For Fairground, 16 artists reworked their tracks, with contributors including Beta Frontiers, How Sad, Pick a Piper, Wake Island and more. The results range from blippy syncopations to dreamy dance beats to quiet acoustic pieces to swirling ambience and everything in between.
According to the band, these contributors reflect the artistic community that Saxsyndrum have been a part of since they began work on Future Circus. Check out the results below.
The bill for the aforementioned launch show also features Syngja and Loopsy Daisy, both of whom contributed to Fairground.
