This year ‘Like Splitting the Head from the Body’ by WOMB has been reimagined by eight producers across China and Aotearoa in this special remix album ‘Like Splitting the Head from the Body: Remixes.’
Inspired by DJ SNAKELEGS’ remix of ‘Blow You Away’ from drummer Georgette Brown’s mixtape for the MESH mix series, the project was developed during the period surrounding WOMB’s ten-date tour of China in July. The resulting compilation brings together participating artists from the tour and associated friends, including Shishi (South Acid Mimi), Zhuoling (Wednesday’s Trip), thruoutin (Seippelabel, Jingweir), Sugarman (Angry Navel, Deep Water), Ex Luna (a.k.a. Shii), DAO (Dumb Sound Records) and Kaishandao, the musical alias of WOMB’s tour organiser Kiwese.
Featuring a mélange of interpretations from Pōneke to Chengdu, these eight beautiful tracks have been meticulously chopped, flipped and recreated without stems as eight distinctive bodies of work that draw upon genres ranging from ambient, IDM and experimental to electro pop, house and techno. Coordinated by Kiwese and mastered back by Thomas at Sonorous Circle, these remixes come to you as a cross-Pacific collaboration full of love.
