Amazing Hunz Remixes by Sefiros

<a href="http://sefiros.co.uk/album/sefiros-versions">It&#8217;s So Light (Sefiros Remix) by Sefiros</a>

 

Here are some more remixes that have completely blown me away. They are for “In Tomorrow” and “It’s so Light”. Thank you so much Sefiros for taking your valuable time and creating something that enhances the emotions of the tracks. He takes familiar phrases and vocals from the tracks and creates something that is between a ambient sound scape and something pop. It really is a perfect meld of our 2 styles. Please check out his albums and thank him if you get the time. Click here for his page

“The Commotion” Remixed

I can’t believe the amount of fan generated remixes that have happened for my last album, Thoughts that Move. This one really show cases a new direction in carefully controlled distortion which really pumps more energy into the track. Really fantastic work. Also note the video clip that runs with it. Some amazing old footage that really works a treat with the song. I can’t tell you how in awe I am. Thank you Extraneous Vapor

Soon, Soon Remix by MMD

Mr Mark Dollin, the guy that mixed my last album, has done a very awesome remix of the song “Soon, Soon”. My favorite type of remixes are ones that take the existing work and build on it to take it out of it’s comfort zone. You can hear wonderful echo’s of the original song through it. Great work MMD!

Lost Demo Track Found and Released.

<a href="http://hunz.bandcamp.com/track/borderline">Borderline by hunz</a>

 

This demo track was written at least five years ago, but I thought it was lost in a hard drive crash. Recently I was on a roadtrip with friends in the USA, and we were listening to their ipod on shuffle in their car. Somewhere along the journey, this track popped on, and I laughed and cried a little. Turns out I had emailed it, so it wasn’t gone forever. I love moments like that in life. Thank you, Nate.

 

Please note this track was only supplied as a 128kps file. It was written completely on buzz with a Shure sm58 mic (no compressor) and mixed in headphones. I may one day return and re-write this track but I feel like I need to move on. Also note that you don’t have to pay for the track to download it. Just put in “0″. If you wanted to throw a few bucks my way then you are more then welcome too ^_^

 

Hope you enjoy.

 

“On Me” Remix

<a href="http://sleeperspaceborn.bandcamp.com/track/on-me-hunz">on me (hunz) by sleeperspaceborn</a>

 

Back in 1999 I released a song called “On Me”. So 10 years later sleeperspaceborn decides to remix it and inject some more life into the track. A big thank you to Ssb for doing 3 remix’s of my tracks. I don’t think I can thank you enough. Something about a good remix makes you feel very special .. :D

 

So if you’ve never heard the original here it is. I converted it over to .mp3 so you can listen to it and get a feel for what I was writing in 1999. I think my face is about to flush a bright red with embarrassment but I’m ok with that .. O_o

Sleeperspaceborn has done another wonderful remix of one of my tunes. Such a wonderful talent and I feel honored that we would consider my work. I love how this song plays out and it has a lot of depth and variety to it all. I’m such a sucker for around 4:59 onwards .. hehe. Thank you so much Sleeperspaceborn.

Renoise Files
I wouldn’t be anything without the demo scene. I really loved it when an artist would release their work in a raw format. I loved going through them all and just learning. I hope these renoise files help some people out ^_^. www.renoise.com is hosting the files for this. A BIG thank you to the team. Renoise is one of the most exciting things I’ve used in a long time.
 

February 2009 housed 28 days. That’s 672 hours for potential productivity, but far less when working around employment and social commitments. This time constraint make the conditions surrounding the release of Hunz’s second album all the more remarkable.

“Thoughts That Move” was conceived, written, performed and produced by Brisbane independent electronic artist Hunz (http://hunz.com.au/) throughout the month of February 2009. It’s Hunz’s contribution to a worldwide contest known as the RPM Challenge (http://rpmchallenge.com/), which saw over 2,200 bands commit to releasing an album of original music within those 28 days. Those 672 hours.

These ten tracks find Hunz tightening his grip on a peerless pop sound that hints at dark electronica undertones, while never misplacing his outstanding melodic sensibilities. In a similar manner to Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails offering the GarageBand source files used to compose his music, Hunz is simultaneously releasing “Thoughts That Move” in the Renoise format that contains the core components of each electronic composition.

“Thoughts That Move” is the sound of Hunz evolving the themes explored on his 2008 debut, “When Victims Fight”. First single “You Said Hello” skillfully contrasts sinister verses with an uplifting chorus, while “Car In The Meadow” will be accompanied by an intriguing animated video later in 2009. On stage, Hunz collaborates with bassist Phil Evans and drummer Richie Young on his devoted journey to the frail heart of pop music.

TOBIAS FISCHER – TOKAFI
“It is neither forced experimentation nor a complex concept which holds these emotionally bipolar pieces together but the simple, yet hypnotically crafted rhythm of verse and chorus, as well as a voice capable of expressing discreet ecstasy and uncliched pain.” (“When Victims Fight” album review, March 2009)

DENIS SEMCHENKO – RAVE MAGAZINE
“Backed by a powerhouse rhythm section, the soul man/laptop wizard gives a glimpse of what Pivot could have sounded like if Richard Pike sang conventional lyrics; his expansive range, in-song vocal loops and sheer passion make for one memorable opening slot.” (Live review, January 2009)

ANDREW MCMILLEN – RAVE MAGAZINE
“Hunz augments electronic samples with his unique voice and live drum and bass to produce an enchanting sound. Why haven’t we heard him earlier? Blame ineffective promotion, blame infrequent performances; it doesn’t matter, as there’s several dozen new fans appreciating the trio’s thoughtful, restrained pieces.” (Live review, November 2008)

I REALLY hope you enjoy this release. I had a lot of fun making this and if it wasn’t for Danielle none of this would have happened. thank you.
