Desert Phase Remixes - Kaya Project  
Desert Phase Remixes
Play Entire CD

Desert Phase, the fourth Kaya Project full length album, drew its inspiration from the time Seb Taylor and Natasha Chamberlain spent in some of the world’s largest deserts. Incorporating field recordings made while traveling across these windswept landscapes, along with additional studio sessions with several world musicians back in London, Desert Phase evokes colouful and dusty imagery of a timeless and mysterious terrain. Carrying on from where the digital-only Ummah Oum Remixes EP left off, Interchill decided to turn the distinctive Kaya Project sound over to the talents of a group of other accomplished producers to see what sort of re-interpretations would emerge.

Scattered across 3 continents, the select remixers represent a diverse range of musical inclinations from dubstep, breaks, glitch hop, techno, drum'n'bass and modern downtempo sensibilities. From New Zealand and Australia, Opiuo, Oblique Industries and Interpulse bring their unique skills to the forefront while US based producers Bluetech, EarthRise SoundSystem and Liquid Stranger each take their preferred tracks 'Vijaya', 'Sundown' and 'Dust Devil' into newly discovered sonic territory. UK based producers Tripswitch, Gaudi, Eat Static, 100th. Monkey and Seb Taylor's three aliases Hibernation, Chaos By Design and Biotone, round out the tracklist with further globetronic treatments which offer further perspectives on the different phases of the desert.

The second release of its kind for Interchill, the Desert Phase Remixes album is a high calibre collection of divergent takes on the classic Kaya Project style. Each track opens a broader glimpse into the original piece while highlighting the individual tastes of each of the remixers and the diversity of their production techniques. The result is a digital melting pot of exotic influences and genre-defying grooves for dancefloors everywhere. Containing the best of both worlds, the remixes are an example of global fusion electronica at its finest and show the remarkable nature of intercontinental musical collaboration.
