citron

Citron is a remix of the Czech heavy-metal band Citron's 1992 release Vypusťte psy, or Release the Dogs. While spending an extended period in the Ostrava studio of Citron’s leader Radim Parizek, FAT found itself with access to the original 24-track tapes of Citron's then most recent album. Working at night FAT re-mixed the entire album to create Citron. 

Citron is a far-cry from the original record’s heavy-metal sound as FAT creates a Bohemian fairy-tale-on-acid from the bones of a late communist era Czech mega-album. The mix turns the original record inside-out and often lays bare the typical "lead" vocals or instrumentation bringing the more banal elements to the forefront. Background synth fills become lead instruments with midi time code serving as a rhythm track with the mix re-configured in a cavernous arena reverb setting. Re-mixed in the studio where the original album was recorded, the re-processed sound was achieved entirely with the period equipment from a 1992 Czech studio.
