Released as part of Remix The Universe – a remix version of legendary artist Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s final album – Child Of delivers an epic electronic reinterpretation of the track Life Is An Experiment.
NYC-based producer Child Of creates melodic house and techno with real sonic character, influenced by his myriad musical passions. After touring the world in some hugely influential bands as a young, (formerly) straight-edge guitarist from Long Island, he gradually shifted his love from mosh pits to dancefloors and Child Of was born. Infused with a sense of real, raw emotion: music that seeks to explore the idea that, ultimately, we’re all children of the same life source.
One of the artists invited to remix a track from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s final album, Child Of’s remix of Life In An Experiment is a nine-minute electronic epic. Commencing with crisp, delicate breakbeats which are soon joined by Perry’s inimitable vocal and increasing intense synthlines and melodies, by its final third it has evolved into a stone-cold techno thumper without sacrificing any of the emotion or atmosphere it so patiently built.
The full Remix The Universe album features new versions by artists from the post-hardcore, experimental hip hop, indie rock, EDM and ambient spheres. From the overdriven electronic blast by Andy Morin (Death Grips), to the dancefloor-ready groove of South Africa’s BLK JKS, to the head-banging fuzz-dub of Quicksand, and Nick Reinhart’s experimental exploration, the 12 track album sizzles across 44 minutes of new music.
