ONO.MIX - 30 Track Remix Retrospective
OUT NOW on Mindtrain/Twisted Records via iTunes & Beatport.
Yoko Ono scored her 5th Consecutive #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart-Topper With “WOULDNIT (I’M A STAR)” The Remixes, featuring Mixes By Dave Aude, Ralphi Rosario, Richard Morel, DJ Yiannis, Emjae, Denny Tstettos, M-Deep, Rob Rives and Timmy Loop.
Originally appearing in 2 different settings, one on YOKO’s LP BLUEPRINT FOR A SUNRISE and the other on her IMA collaboration RISING, the previously bluesy WOULDNIT has been retooled into a surging motivational anthem courtesy of vibrant reconstructions by DAVE AUDE, RALPHI ROSARIO, RICHARD MOREL, DJ YIANNIS, EMJAE, DENNY TSTETTOS, M-DEEP, ROB RIVES, and TIMMY LOOP.
The song is easily one of the enduring avant-garde visionary’s most dynamic remix offerings to date and it’s meteoric rise to the top of the club charts has been nothing short of amazing.
The fiery anthem quickly ascended to the #24 power pick (Issue Date: 08/14/2010) before landing in the Top Ten at #8* with a bullet (Issue Date: 09/04/2010).
Then, just three short weeks later, WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR) seized the coveted #1 spot!
Not only is this a testament to the potency of ONO’s original work, it’s also further evidence of why she’s become embraced as the reigning queen of the dance scene.
It’s unbelievable that at 77 years young, the alt-rock matriarch continues to be a major influential force on the cultural landscape. Nearly 5 decades since first bursting onto the unsuspecting art and music worlds with her forward-thinking works, Yoko continues to evolve and thrive – both inside and outside the margins – still dreaming, pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo with her own unique and uncompromising artistic vision.
“WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR)” (THE REMIXES) and “WOULDNIT’ (I’M A STAR)” (THE DUB MIXES) are available now as digital green releases (no materials used or abused) on MIND TRAIN / TWISTED Records at iTunes and the TWISTED Records online store.
