THE KNIFE, WITH MT.SIMS AND PLANNINGTOROCK RELEASE “SEEDS” REMIXED BY PORTABLE AKA BODYCODE AND SHINEDOE RELEASED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BEATPORT ON NOVEMBER 19th, FULL RELEASE DECEMBER 6th
The Knife, in collaboration with Mt.Sims and Planningtorock are set to release “Seeds”, with remixes by Portable aka Bodycode and Shinedoe, exclusively on November 19th through Beatport, with the full digital and limited edition 12” vinyl release coming December 6th.
Taken from the album Tomorrow, In A Year, “Seeds” is a delicate but driving techno pop track and features vocals by Swedish pop star Jonathan Johansson and Danish mezzo soprano Kristina Wahlin. Since the album’s release earlier this year, “Seeds” has already made waves in the dance world.
The remixers – Ghostly International’s Berlin-dwelling South African deep house producer Portable aka Bodycode, and the Dutch head of Intacto Records, Shinedoe - were selected by Olof Dreijer..."I just really like their music - a very nice mix of melodic and moving dance music. I've been spinning their music over the last few years and most often it brings a smile to people's faces and makes people dance a little more."
Bodycode has injected some Berlin deep-house warmth, stretching the track to 12 minutes, while Shinedoe has turned the original’s sparse instrumentation into a layered, big-room tech-house track.
Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma Tomorrow, In A Year is a unique musical project, based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’. The compositions challenge the conventional conception of opera music.
