Press Info:
Factory Benelux presents Collaborator, a new collection of remixes by Berlin-based producer and musician Mark Reeder.

Expanding on Reeder’s acclaimed Five Point One collection in 2011, Collaborator gathers together door-wobbling remixes for European dance acts such as Westbam, Koishii & Hush and Blank & Jones, along with electronic and EDM artists including Ladytron singer Helen Marnie, elegant Greek synthpop duo Marsheaux, and hotly-tipped newcomer Queen of Hearts (aka Elizabeth Morphew).

Reeder’s early influence on the electronic/dance direction taken by New Order after 1981 is reflected in several collaborations with his friend Bernard Sumner. As well as sharp electro remixes of the two Bad Lieutenant singles Sink Or Swim and Twist of Fate, Sumner is also the featured vocalist on tracks by Westbam, Blank & Jones and Corvin Dalek (the latter track an early version of New Order single Crystal). Sumner also produced You Hurt Me by Reeder’s band Shark Vegas, released as a single on Factory way back in 1986.

Other featured vocalists range from postpunk poet Anne Clark to Duran Duran bassist John Taylor, all topped off by a beguiling version of I’m In Love With A German Film Star, recorded by noted British artist Sam Taylor Wood with the Pet Shop Boys. A collaborative effort indeed!
