Machinarium Remixed is the title of a 7-track remix album celebrating the 10th anniversary of Amanita Design's robot city adventure. The Prague-based independent studio teams up with 7 different music projects from across the globe to shed new light on Tomáš Dvořák’s (aka Floex) critically acclaimed soundtrack. The album is out on both vinyl and digital today in collaboration with Minority Records.
“I played Machinarium when it first came out and it quickly became one of my favourite all-time games, with my favourite game score of all time. In fact simply one of my favourite albums of the last ten years,” said Orbital's Paul Hartnoll about discovering Floex’s soundtrack. “When Tomas asked if Orbital would like to take part in the project I jumped at the idea knowing full well which piece I wanted to do and how. I was thrilled to find ‘The Glasshouse with Butterfly’ was ready and waiting for us. This has been one of the most fun remixes we’ve done for years, and to top it all we asked Tomas to remix an Orbital song in return. He didn’t disappoint, he delivered one of our favourite remixes that anyone has ever done for us. What a joyful creative transaction!” he added.
The rest of the line-up consists of some of the most frequently praised artists and music projects within the indie games community such as C418 (Minecraft), 65daysofstatic (No Man’s Sky), Jim Guthrie (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP), Baiyon (PixelJunk Eden), Ed Critchley (Lumino City) or Amanita Design’s very own freak-folk duo DVA (Botanicula, CHUCHEL).
The 7-track album is out today on all major digital platforms. Collectors and vinyl enthusiasts alike can order the exclusive amber-coloured 180-gram vinyl, strictly limited to 700 hand-numbered copies. The LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with Eva Marková’s reimagination of Adolf Lachman’s original artwork for the game.
This autumn, Tomáš Dvořák aka Floex will be touring the Czech Republic with a brand new show, playing his music for video games live for the first time ever. The main concert will happen on 27th November 2019 at Palác Akropolis, Prague.
