For Greater Good Remixed & Reworked Session – One hour special on Mixcloud

Villa Synergy is an independent streaming radioshow on Villa Bota. They asked us to come up with something special for their “End of the world” all-nighter. And so we did, we mixed an hour long set of Remixes and Reworks by various artists of songs of our first album.

Enjoy the one hour FGG – Remixed & Reworked DJ-set for Villa Nocturnal.

For Greater Good Remixed & Reworked – Batch 7!

Here we are with the last three remixes and reworks for this year! There are still more to come, but with the holidays coming, we decided to take a small break after this batch. The holiday season is a time for family matters and festivities, after all.

So, the final three for this year and we will go out with a bang!

– Giving Distress a Roel Butzen-makeover, making it more danceable than ever!
Distress (Roel Butzen Remix)

– Another harsh Love Your Terrorist remake, this time by Liquid G.’s noisier side-project Maxx:Impact!
Love Your Terrorist (Maxx:Impact Mix)

– A beautifully evolving tribal-ambient take on DTFN, with an epic ending befitting the Apocalypse later this month, by long-time friend and colleague TraumaSutra:
De Te Fabula Narratur (TraumaSutra Remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, listen to all 21!

You will have the opportunity to buy all remixes in one package very soon, stay tuned and… enjoy the holidays!

For Greater Good Remixed & Reworked – Fifth batch already!

And we’ve reached 15 in total with this one, as good as a full cd’s worth of remixes so far, but we ain’t there yet!

The three new songs:

– A nice floor-filler danceable version of one of our best known songs, by Phazon One:
Le Jugement Du Roi En Jaune (Phazon One Remix)

– A ripping, tearing, harsh, brutal rendition, screaming industrial hardcore by Le Moderniste (WARNING! This one goes LOUD! Watch your ears and speakers!!):
Love Your Terrorist (lowdronecore remix)

– A lovely new take on this downtempo song, by a long-time friend of ours, Red Audio Faction (RAF):
White Is The New Black (Red Remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, you can listen to all 15 tracks!

We get many questions about this and now asking for so much patience is a hard thing but you will have the opportunity to buy them later on, when all remixes are uploaded.

Enjoy!

For Greater Good Remixed and Reworked! New batch!

 

Summer is almost gone so we decided it was time to continue our Remixed and Reworked series! We will release more new remixes periodically until they are all on Bandcamp.

Individual tracks are not downloadable anymore (for the moment); we decided to offer download of the full collection when all remixes are published, for a moderate price. At that time you will be able to buy ALL remixes in one go, in lossless format! People that already bought individual tracks, do not worry; if you decide to buy the whole lot afterwards, mail us and we will work something out.

Proudly we present the three new additions:

– An industrial/electro floorfiller by our long-time friend ETHAN FAWKES (B):
Ethan Fawkes – Love Your Terrorist (Ethan Fawkes Rmx)

– A droning dark soundscape by ambient/drone genius GENERIC (UK):
Generic – Ghosts and Memories

– A sublime electro-pop rework by GHOST from Ghost&Writer (B)
aka JM Lederman (The Weathermen) aka Jimmyjoe Snark III aka … :
Ghost&Writer – Rush Hour (Ghost Remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, listen to all 9 up till now!

Enjoy!

 

For Greater Good song featured on dark ambient compilation

Priapus Twenty-Three is a very decent fellow.
Twice a year, he releases what he finds to be the crême de la crême of Dark Ambient.
And this year, For Greater Good is featured on Volume 4 with our soundscape-track “Rusted Revenge”!
Aired only once before on the “You Are Here”-compilation in abridged version, this is the full length soundtrack to an imaginary MechWarrior game.
Check it out here, the download is a Pay As You Please and also features some very fine bands such as Desiderii Marginis, Atrium Carceri, Akoustik Timbre Frekuency and ASBAAR.

For Greater Good – Remixed and Reworked – First Batch OUT NOW!!!

We have always seen our project and the music we make as a seed to be planted in people’s mind, to grow into a big tree and into a forest over time…

It’s been growing for a while… the first branches sprouted just months after the cd-release in 2008 and still remixes are coming in.

We have been asking friends, bands we are fan of and fellow musicians for some time now to do remixes for us and now the time is ripe to release these unto the world. Some used to remix for years, others are new to the game or simply did the first remix they ever made in a long career.

Remixes range from industrial reworks, cover versions, pop-edits, breakbeat, triphop, electronica… from artists: 6SISS, Ater X Decem, Dark Poem, Dead Man’s Hill, Distant Fires Burning, Ethan Fawkes, Generic, Ghost, IoNiZeR, Le Moderniste, Liquid G., Maxx Impact, Mi5, Morph Control, No More, P.A.L., Phazon One, Red Audio Faction, Roel Butzen, Toshe Station, Traumasutra, Tzii, VV303, ZiBiT,… and many more to come… over the next months.
