PARK LIMITED MUZIK presents HOT STATION - the collaboration in between DJ 19 (aka AMBROZIA, VALID EVIDENCE, TRANCENTRAL STATION) and HIDE (aka HotDog, HIDEOUT) that has been gaining a positive reputation for all things eclectic in electronic music. Previously their focus has been on the Japanese domestic market through the 19BOX SPECIAL label. That has all changed after their recent debut album. As a result of this focus on the Japanese market, 'Paint It Black' previously saw a release under the track names of 'Makkuroku Nuritubuse' and 'Random Factor'. You may have also heard the original version on the album and remix version on PARK LIMITED MUZIK(catalog number PLM014) as 'Random Factor'. 'Makkuroku Nuritubuse' was released as a rap version on 19BOX SPECIAL. Sufficiently confused? We are too! That's why were taking this opportunity to straighten it out and release it to the world as 'Paint It Black' and give the tune a fresh coat of paint to start anew.
The remix comes courtesy of a new Taiwanese act by the name of FEO. DJ 19 met him recently in Taipei during a gig when DJ 19 opened for the infamous John Digweed. This is a first release for FEO, but hes a graduate from the Vancouver, Canada-based branch of the prestigious North American Art Institute. It was here he developed a professional knowledge in music and started to gain numerous experiences in recording and music production. This drove him to begin DJing and composing in 1999. FEOs two remixes inject tribal elements that have us here at 19BOX towers wanting to put on a pow-wow.
