Re/Vision: The SkyQode Tribute To De/Vision (2015)
When a band passes its 25th anniversary, it is a moment to be celebrated and a time to look back at their body of work. In a scene that undergoes constant change and evolution, very few bands reach this point and even fewer can say that one of their first songs is still being played all over the world… DE/VISION can say both of those things. With the incredible “Try to Forget” on their very first self-released “Live” cassette (recorded 1989/90, released 1990), this band has been heard on the dance floor ever since. Remixed by the biggest names in the Synthpop/Electronic scene there have been many compilations over the years, but never has there been a compilation of their greatest tracks done by up and coming bands who list DE/VISION as one of their favourites… until now.
We have harnessed the power of the artists that drive eastern Europe’s strong underground electronic dance scene to create “RE/VISION: The Skyqode Tribute to DE/VISION”. Opening with Alpha Point’s cover of that first hit “Try to Forget”, this CD covers many of the biggest tracks spanning the history of this legendary band chosen by the bands that cover them. Joining Alpha Point on this CD are our very own Mental Discipline, Unity One, Purple Fog Side and Requiem4FM, along with 64 Rockets (a side-project of Mike of Unity One), konclever (a side project of Ayli of Freaky Mind), Dust Heaven, Fatal Aim, Mechanical Apfelsine, MIND:|:SHREDDER, and Emphalie.
This is our way to say “Thank You” to DE/VISION for the inspiration that they have provided to all of us over the past 25 years and we look forward to what the future holds for them. Their music has made this a truly wonderful “Time To Be Alive”!
