Info:
British label chief, producer and musician Mark Reeder is a product of what many regard as the Golden Age of science fiction. He grew up in an England dominated by security forces of the future with outsize heads jiggling on strings to save the world from intergalactic menaces in hit after hit from the Gerry Anderson stable. He saw Doctor Who take his first tentative steps into the past and the future on carboard sets populated by jumble sale aliens. In cinema there was the constant threat of Communist stealth attacks always from Mars or the psychadelic trip that was Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. He was fascinated by the electronic pulsations of the Forbidden Planet soundtrack and devoured fan magazines like Century 21. Wobbly spaceships, cardboard robots, ray guns and bug-eyed monsters; as a child he was drawn to this sometimes quaint, sometimes ominously correct visions of the future.

It should come as no surprise then that Five Point One, his debut compilation of Remix work, should concern itself as much with modern technology as it does with music.

Five Point One presents a hand-picked selection of some of Reeder’s Remixes remastered and re-mixed in crystal clear true 5.1. surround sound. Present is work for legendary heavyweights such as The Pet Shop Boys, John Foxx, Anne Clark, Die Toten Hosen, former New Order as Bad Lieutenant, Blank&Jones, Vanessa Daou, plus an exclusive Remix for Depeche Mode, while Reeder also puts his particular retro synth-pop spin on tracks from up-and-coming artists such as Fidelity Kastrow, Electrobelle, May68, Echoes or Noblesse Oblige.

Five Point One is a deluxe collection of some of the best of Reeder’s recent work, a double CD/DCVD package gloriously Remixed and remastered in true 5.1 surround sound creating a listening experience which enhances the depth and radiance of the original stereo mixes – which are also included for a traditional 2.0 stereo too.

Five Point One is an album of many layers and facets, a rich listening experience which allows you to dive in and go on a multi-dimensional Fantastic Voyage back into the future. The DVD also contains the original 80s classic John Foxx Underpass video, the artistically acclaimed videopicture by Sam Taylor-Wood for German Film Star, as well as a couple of specially produced videos, such as the scary sci-fi puppet video for Twist of Fate, the innovative video for 21st Century Girl or the mystical and dreamy videos for Black & White and Ice Cold.

And as Doctor Who himself might say, to understand the future, you have to look to the past. Mark Reeder was born in Manchester in 1958. A fan of radical new music from an early age he cut his teeth working in Manchester’s flagship Virgin records store while at the same time playing in the punk band Frantic Elevators with a pre-Simply Red Mick Hucknall. After re-locating to Berlin where he worked as Factory Records Germany rep he formed the darkwave trio Die Unbekannten, co-managed dour all-girl line up Malaria! and sound mixed for bands Einstürzende Neubauten and Die Toten Hosen. As the 80s progressed, the dark, Unbekannten were repackaged as the more accessible Shark Vegas and they toured Europe with New Order. In the dying days of Eastern Bloc communism, Mark produced the last ever indie pop album in East Germany, Torture by Die Vision, becoming the only Westerner ever to produce a band in the German Democratic Republic. As the tide turned towards the radical sounds of techno, Mark formed the first ever electronic dance label in East Germany, MFS, discovering Cosmic Baby and Paul van Dyk along the way and was largely responsible for the development of the trance genre. In recent years, Reeder has established a reputation for himself as a much sought-after Remixer for bands both established and new, looking for that particular retro-modern synth-pop sound which has become the hallmark of his work.

Five Point One is undoubtably a must have album for anyone interested in synth-pop or a fan of any of the artists featured. You will need it!
