February 9th 2007 - Remix of Onision's "Desperate For Sorrow" completed

Chris has finished off and delivered to US experimental solo artist, Onision, a remix of his haunting track "Desperate For Sorrow". Commenting on the remix, Chris stated that this was the most difficult remix he has done so far although the end result appears to be very good as Gregory from Onision has given his seal of approval to the mix.

This is COAB's third remix for other artists, following on from Cassandra Allen in '06 and Dizasteroid in January '07. It is hoped that the band will be able to release these remixes at a later stage and will also be adding them here to play on this site.

The band have one more remix on the go right now, whilst they have been contacted by bands as far away as Australia and Los Angeles to complete remixes for them. It is hoped that they will reciprocate with remixes of new songs by COAB as well.

Coming out of Dublin, his Broadjam site has almost 100 songs of varying genres but never varying quality. "Waterdance" is his take on a cinematic soundtrack of the classic 1950's film "On The Waterfront" starring Marlon Brando and features various cuts from it. COAB have provided two remixes so far, the first the COAB Contender Remix can be heard on their MySpace site, just follow the link below. A second version has also been loaded at Dizasteroid's Broadjam site where you can hear both songs and also as a bonus, his take on a Christ On A Bike song  from the forthcoming LP "Child's Play" entitled "Running For The Good Life" which may now feature as a possible single too.  To reach the Broadjam site just click the following other link and search for Dizasteroid.
