For Greater Good Remixed & Reworked – First batch of the New Year!

Yeap, it took a couple of weeks, but after the holidays, here we are again with a brand new batch – batch 8 already!

That means we have a stunning 24 remixes up till now, and we’re still not quite there yet! This week, enjoy three superb remixes and reworks again:

– An ambient/experimental remake by Nils Parmentier, AKA Ater X Decem, rendering Love Your Terrorist into an even more intense song…:
Love Your Terrorist, AXD(istortion) Remix

– A dancefloor remake if we ever heard one! The Yellow King groovin’ it out on this super Bart Vervoort remix:
Judgement (Bart Vervoort Remix)

– Distress has been remixed quite some times already, but this rework by Dan Fox mixes noise, electro, punk and a good dose of symphonic elements into one very interesting blend!
Distress (LOSS Remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, listen to all 24!

We are nearing the end of this extensive batch, remember you will have the chance to buy all remixes very soon for a modest price!

DREAMWASH, project by samdevos – EP out this week!

As some of you may know, samdevos is a busy man. Not only is he busy with all things FOR GREATER GOOD, he’s also a live musician with Vomito Negro, does nice things with SwanDream and still finds the time, inspiration and energy to make his own DREAMWASH sounds, an experimental electronic-ambient adventure that is really worth your attention.

And lots of people appreciate it, so it seems, because it landed him a deal with Deaf Owl Communication, the label founded by Roel Butzen (Bonzai Records, Violent Wake-up and others) and housing some other memorable new acts like VV303 (which you may recognize from the super remix he did for For Greater Good recently) and SteMaTik !

The first DREAMWASH EP will be out on November 29, 2012 and is titled “Double Sided E.P.”, containing the songs ‘Double Sided’, ‘Dark Secret’ and ‘Atmosphere Is For Breathing’.

Check out the Deaf Owl Communication site for audioclips, and in the meantime, watch the teaser trailer!

For Greater Good Remixed and Reworked – The Sixth Batch

18 songs! What a feat! That means at least 18 artists found our music worthy enough to remix and remodel to their own liking…

OK, so here’s another three, and some cool remixes/reworks they are!

– A mesmerizing trance-inducing ambient-electro take on De Te Fabula Narratur (DTFN), by VV303:
De Te Fabula Narratur (VV303 remix)

– Disassembling and re-assembling Love Your Terrorist, the 25Men (a James Ray project) do what they do best — their own interpretation!
Eat Your Psyche (25men remix)

– A new, refreshing, sparkling and spanking take on Spring Mechanist, by another long-time friend of ours, ZiBiT!
Spank Mechanist (ZiBiT remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, listen to all 18!

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

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 – First Batch OUT NOW!!!

From 06062012 on we are going to release three remixes of the For Greater Good’s  “For Greater Good” album in our biweekly “Three FGG remixes Summer-Treat”… for this first batch we have selected No More (D), IoNiZeR (B) and Liquid G. (B). Enjoy!

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.

“For Greater Good & Friends – The All4s Sessions” out now!

“FOR GREATER GOOD & FRIENDS- The All4s Sessions” is out now and available on Bandcamp!

Years ago, we did a jamsession at Veranda – Kessel, Belgium with the FGG core members Izzy and samdevos plus some guests; Evan Roy on violins and Jonas G on additional sampling. The 3-hour jam was recorded live to stereo track that we cut down to a 1-hour ambient electroacoustic session without any further editing and was named “The All4s Sessions”.

You can download it here: http://forgreatergood.bandcamp.com/album/the-all4s-sessions

We consider this a conceptual album, so it is only available as full album download, You can listen to the tracks separately, tho.

The price for this album is 1 euro, but when you think it is worth a lot more, you can enter any amount above 1 euro as well, which will be highly appreciated by us! :)

Enjoy and share this release!

 

Happy 2012… with a special gift for you!

FOR GREATER GOOD wishes you all a Happy New Year and a healthy and music-filled 2012!

The album “FOR GREATER GOOD & FRIENDS – The All4s Sessions” will soon be available on Bandcamp!

Previous to the release, we would like to give away the track “No End” totally for FREE, to listen to in the drowsy aftermaths of New Year’s Eve. It will be available from January 1st till January 8th 2012, then the full All4s Sessions will be put online.
