    Alice Boman released her debut EP "Skisser" earlier this year. And it seeped out to the public eye as steady as blood from a wound.

    The 7th of November Adrian Recordings is releasing a remix successor. 4 of the finest Swedish artists are trans-coding Alice's songs to another dimension.

    Here's a version featuring Stockholm based kraut dance act NATTEN

    I want you more than I need you. Are you coming back? Are you coming back? I'm waiting," sings Alice Boman in her fragile and hypnotizing voice. In her song "Waiting," the Scandinavian artist's voice is accompanied only by her melancholic piano playing. Boman recorded the song, as well as her entire debut EP Skisser, which means "sketches" in Swedish, at home. It is a raw, unedited testimony of the power of the relationship between music and emotion. Later this fall, Boman will re-release her EP with now in remixed form.

    Skisser / Remixed will be replete with more complex sounds, featuring up-and-coming Swedish music artists. Straying from trite DJs and already established remixers, Boman deliberately selected the younger artists with whom she collaborated. Here we are pleased to premiere Boman's unison with Swedish kraut dance orchestra NATTEN for the remix of "Waiting."

    "I think I somehow become more aware and observant when listening to the remix," Boman says. "I love what NATTEN did—the beat and the horns and that bass. They added another pulse to it."

    With NATTEN's additions, "Waiting" retains its melancholic tone while simultaneously acquiring a stronger substance from analogue instruments, such as the trumpet, and synthesizers. The remix further develops Boman's original sound; it does not entirely replace it.

    Accordingly, Skisser / Remixed's album art reflects Boman's progression. The original Skisser cover depicts a costal field in soft focus with the ocean looming behind the trees on the horizon line. It is as though Boman stepped forward, across this field and through the trees with Skisser / Remixed, as a hazy image of crashing waves fronts the remixed EP. She traversed the placid landscape to explore the more rhythmic patterns of the ocean.
