PLATONOS, LENA - SUN MASKS REMIXES (MLP)


"Lena Platonos is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. Her debut solo album 'Sun Masks' was produced in 1984 and reissued by Dark Entries in 2016. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the Roland TR 808 drum machine and Yamaha C60 synthesizer. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 1980s. We've recruited four of our favorite contemporary producers to remix their favorite tracks from 'Sun Masks'. First up is "Lego" remixed by triple scorpio supernova Avalon Emerson. Her remix morphs the track into a solid dancefloor twister. Next is "Lego" remixed by Lena Willikens. She provides a deep and psychedelic journey through the darker shadows of the early night or morning. On the B-side is Kim Ann Foxman remixing "Hoping By Shopping". She transforms the spacey robotic vocoder track into a dynamic deep house workout, tough and dreamy all at once. Closing out the EP is a remix of "Wrong Love" Borusiade aka Miruna Boruzescu. Enhancing the original melancholic piano ballad to a cosmic processional with poignant bass lines that build and recess like the ocean tides." (label info)
