Following the release of their critically acclaimed second album ‘CCTV’ earlier this year, Columbia Mills are thrilled to announce they have teamed up with some of their favourite artists Jape, Girl Band, Ryan Vail and Get Well Soon, for their ‘Remixed EP’. This EP allowed the artists to create their own interpretation of tracks from ‘CCTV’ and put their creative spin on the songs. The first release from the remixed EP is Jape’s remix of their song ‘The Greatest Love’, which will be released Friday, 30th October 2020.
Columbia Mills will be releasing a track a week throughout the month of November, kicking things off is Jape’s remix of ‘The Greatest Love’, due for release Friday 30th October 2020.
The full release dates for the EP are:
Jape remix ‘The Greatest Love‘ – 30th October 2020
Get Well Soon ‘Mirror on the Front Seat’ – 6th November 2020
Ryan Vail ‘Car Crash TV’- 13th November 2020
Daniel Fox of Girl Band ‘Understand’ – 20th November 2020
Frontman from Columbia Mills Fiachra Treacy speaks about how the idea came about for the remixed EP:
“Above all else, the members of Columbia Mills are massive music fans.
We spend most of our free time attending gigs of all genres and discussing our favourite artists. Our broad range of influences can be heard in our music, so we thought it would be a good idea to ask the people who influence us most, to remix some of our tracks.
We put out the feelers and we were delighted that everyone agreed to be a part of this EP.
Getting the mixes back from each artist was like waking up on Christmas morning. To have your favourite artist remix your tracks was an awesome feeling for us.
Given the circumstances we find ourselves in, there has been a massive sense of community amongst artists of all genres. We are all in the same boat. Some of us are unsure as to whether we keep paddling, or whether to get off before it sinks entirely. This project, and the support that we have gotten from our friends and fellow artists, have galvanized and inspired us to keep going. It has inspired us to plough ahead and write our 3rd album.
This EP represents the sense of community that has been created by the decimation of our industry. 5 artists of different genres coming together to support each other when it is needed the most.
Thank you, Richie, Foxy (and the lads from Girl band), Ryan, and Konstantin for your genius. We are inspired and truly grateful.”
