Check out a trio of remixes of "Wasteland", a song by the English art rock outfit Satellites.

When Johnny Vic dropped off a couple of his CDs that he made under the name Satellites in London record shops, he found that they sold out rather quickly in most cases. Following up on this momentum, Satellites crafted a full-length LP, .02, which was released in the UK last year, and will soon see its stateside release. Below you can check out three remixes of the .02 number “Wasteland”.
  
Vic tells PopMatters about the remixes, “These versions of ‘Wasteland’ are more apocalyptic and baron than the original. But they still make me want to dance. The Invisible remix is all about building melodic tension. The Clas Tuuth remix strips the production right back to something beautifully skeletal. And the Vestrrbother remix turns up and stretches the beats from the original into an epic bit of Balaeric.”




.02 will be available in the US and the rest of the world on October 7th.
