For Dark World artists, Summer 2008 was the summer of NIN remixes. AndyN, a friend of Dark World from the UK, told Kylyra about the remixes that Trent was allowing on his website. This led to Kristi asking the artists to come up with mixes that were based on NIN songs, but had the flavour of the Dark World artist or band doing the track. 9 tracks in total got finished and are now up on the NIN site, free to download. They contain performances from Kylyra, Deemed Psychotic, Infinisynth, Future Dialogue, Tor's Angst, TechnoKy and Doctor When. The tracks were not simple computer remixes. Each artist took their song into the Dark World Studio which has no computer. Descriptions of each track can be found on the 'NIN tracks' pages 1 and 2 (on the left).
a Statement from Kristi Ameringer about the remixes
Over the past 14 years I've watched Dark World artists work tremendously hard in the studio to achieve their own sound. There's been times that's been difficult; as with any small label Dark World has always had to operate within a tight budget, and that's sometimes meant we've had to record our artists with very limited equipment.
The Nine Inch Nails remixes that Dark World artists have worked on truly showcase the talents and versatility of everyone involved. Each song has the band or artist's signature sound, and each stands apart from the other. I find it amazing that all of these remixes were done in one studio, on essentially the same equipment. I am very proud of the sound captured for each of the remixes, and think all the artists, engineers, and producers deserve recognition for their talented performances and hard work.
