Collide "Mind & Matter" double album - OUT NOW
Collide are back with their best remix album yet!
Label: Noiseplus Music
Product Code: Noise 017
Also released as an Instrumental version
Today's Mind & Matter remixer / collaborator profile is for Maria Lui.
Maria did a remix for the song "Intruder", and is probably one of the most jaw dropping remixes on the album. It takes the song into a totally orchestral place, that will leave you with goosebumps!! Here's what she had to say about herself and doing the remix.
"Hello Collide Fans! After 17 amazing years of building a career in golf swings, I decided just last year to make the giant leap back into writing! Maybe because I shut one door and opened another, I've had the opportunities to co-score a film, perform on stage and experiment doing my first remix ever, thanks to Collide, who provided this super cool contest that ANYONE could enter!!
I chose the song 'Intruder' because kaRIN's lyrics and exquisite voice, captured me completely. My interpretation was written as an orchestral piece, mirroring kaRIN's soulful expression, magnifying all the convoluted emotions that we sometimes find ourselves struggling through when facing huge life decisions. The remix holds great significance for me because it reflects my own decisions in returning to music! "
