Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos and Anja Schneider put Vienna's Vegetable Orchestra through the blender.
The Vegetable Orchestra is a group of eleven musicians, one cook and one sound engineer who use instruments constructed from vegetables. Think carrot flutes, cabbage leaf kazoos and pepper trumpets. The group first invited some of dance music's heavyweights to cook up new recipes using sounds from their album Automate in 2005, and now the fruits of their labour will be released on CD.
Remixed includes previously issued remixes from Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Oliver Hacke as well as new concoctions from Mobilee chef Anja Schneider ('Carrot Cuts Mix') and Karmarouge kitchen hand Sian ('Secret Garden Mix'). Award for the best remix name, however, still belongs to Basteroid for his Human Leak remix.
