Anglo-Maltese quartet ĠENN announce a remix project of their 2023 acclaimed debut album unum for completion on February 23rd via Liminal Collective. The first release from this comes courtesy of Indian producer Goya, with his edit of ‘Calypso’.

Anglo-Maltese quartet ĠENN announce a remix project of their 2023 acclaimed debut album unum for completion on February 23rd via Liminal Collective. The first release from this comes courtesy of Indian producer Goya, with his edit of ‘Calypso’.

This is the first of a trilogy of remixes created in collaboration with 3 artists from 3 different countries. In selecting artists for their reimagining of unum tracks there was a strong focus on PoC and queer artists, and the extension of creative freedom and experimentation explored in unum, as interpreted by each individual.

The band explain a little more on the purpose and process behind the remix project:

“We’re excited to kick off the unum Remix project with Goya’s remix of Calypso. As a band, collaborating with other artists is something that we genuinely enjoy as it reinvigorates why we do music in the first place. So when we came up with the remix project idea, we chose three individual artists from three different countries – the UK (Bristol), Malta, and India – who aren’t afraid of pushing the envelope and challenging the norms in their respective countries.”
