One Little Indian is set to release Bastards, an album of remixed racks from BjÃ¶rk’s most recent album Biophilia. The album includes some of the remixes released in an eight-part series earlier this year selected by BjÃ¶rk and remastered for this album by Grammy-nominee Mandy Parnell. Bastards features collaborations with artists and producers specifically chosen by Bjork for this project including Current Value, Death Grips, Hudson Mohawke, Alva Noto, Matthew Herbert, Omar Souleyman, 16-bit, These New Puritans, and The Slips.
“I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes,” said BjÃ¶rk of the project, “so I picked a quarter of them for one CD for people who are perhaps not too sassy downloaders or don’t have the time or energy topartake in the hunter-gathering rituals of the internet. I was incredibly impressed by how the core of the mixes took Biophilia somewhere else while still keeping its character, and like they so often do when at their best: the remixes gave the songs more beats; legs to dance on! I spent some time editing together not necessarily the best ones but the ones that made the strongest whole.”
