Marumari The Remixes

CRPK14

May 21st, 2002

In the works for many years, meticulously prepared and fine-tuned by Marumari’s friends, Carpark presents the much-anticipated Marumari remix CD.

The list of remixers reads like a who’s who of Marumari’s IM buddy list: Electric Company (Tigerbeat6), Robert Lippok (from to Rococo Rot), Casino vs. Japan (Wobblyhead, City Centre offices, and future Carpark recording artist), Lackluster (Defocus), Cex (Tigerbeat6), Greg Davis (Carpark), L’usine (Isophlux, Hymen), Octopus Inc. (Kracfive), Stars As Eyes (Tigerbeat6), and Colongib (Kracfive). The CD also includes the ever-popular “Baby M” music video (which made its way onto MTV2 last year), a short video piece about Marumari’s dog Bacon (with remixed audio by Miami’s o9), and mp3s from Vim, Kettel (Planet-Mu), Multiplex, Buddy System, Phluidbox, Yuppster (8 bit peoples), Proem (Merck), Thug (Defocus), and Atomly (Atomiq).

There’s something on the remixes for everyone. Casino vs. Japan turns Marumari into a blissful sonic haze, Greg Davis reinterprets Marumari with his arsenal of acoustic instruments, and Electric Company strips Marumari down to the basics: a melody, a rhythm, and a wolf’s howl. The remixes will definitely keep you happy until Marumari finishes up their next LP and epic science fiction novel.

Artist Bio

No, he isn’t from outer space as his surreal tunes would have you believe. How then to explain Marumari’s offbeat taste, his predilection for clothes from the gap, or his scooter fetish? This mutated breed of earthling is obviously the result of a childhood plagued by episodes of star trek and peewee’s playhouse, digging hobbit holes, an obsession with toy rockets, and disco dancing on cruise ships for $5 poker chips. It’s a wonder that his royal elastic feet are still grounded here on earth. The springy feet however are apropos since Marumari, a.k.a. Josh Presseisen has bounced back and forth in his young musical career from twee indie rock to laptop pop.

Dwelling in the faceless suburbs of planet earth, this galactic composer has captured an ever broadening audience, mesmerizing them with his musical mumbo jumbo. How does this genius create his unique sound? Forget the standard composing programs; Marumari has masterminded the generic PC shareware programs and created a style to formulate 21st century tunes on his outdated 20th century computer.
