Krischan Wesenberg (ROTERSAND) reworks GLIS material on "A shot and a bassline" CD

Krischan Wesenberg (ROTERSAND) reworks GLIS material on "A shot and a bassline" CD
“GLIS 2001-2008 a shot and a bassline, the revisited collection”, an album title which has as much importance as its sub-title: “15 tracks re-cut and remastered by Krischan Wesenberg of ROTERSAND”… GLIS' frontman Shaun Frandsen indeed brings us something entirely unique in today's dark scene. A straight re-cut concept for which he teamed up with Krischan Wesenberg (known for being the man behind the music of ROTERSAND) who worked from the fully mastered original versions of the 15 selected tracks. He rearranged the songs, used some parts from one song and cuts from others, adding overdubs to the re-edits, new beat elements, additional sequences, effects and filtering; basically making every track different from the original recordings. Like ROTERSAND's mastermind explains it himself: “The “re-works“ I did on the GLIS tracks wouldn't have been termed a “remix“ in today's dancefloor culture. When you see “remix” printed on the sleeve of a record, you mostly expect to hear a version which is very different from the original. Often you will find the vocal line on another track…”. “A Shot and a Bassline” is GLIS' 5th album.

Seattle based artist Shaun F. started out with the EBM / industrial band GLIS in 2001. GLIS released its debut album, "Extract" that year, and got then signed to the European label Alfa Matrix through its last full-length release "Nemesis" on which he collaborated amongst others with FRONT 242's lead-singer Jean-Luc De Meyer. He is also known for having produced and performed the music of Canadian band AYRIA's “Debris” album in 2003, for becoming in 2005 a member for COMBICHRIST and for joining VNV NATION on stage in 2007 as live keyboardist as well. Throughout 2001-2006, GLIS played out around the world reaching as far as Mexico, Canada, England, Belgium, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Scotland, and finally in Germany at the WGT 2006 for the final concert. In 2006, after several tours of duty through the global battlefield with GLIS and COMBICHRIST, Shaun F. put the GLIS project on ice and started with an Electro fused project under his own name.

And since December 2007, besides writing more Shaun F. electro tracks, our talented artist has also been in studio producing a new GLIS full-length album from which a couple of first exclusive extracts are revealed for the first time on this blasting new album that will keep you dancing harder and longer on GLIS until his next assault. On the band's fans pressing demand, some limited promotional gigs for this release are also currently under preparation.
