Following the release of their acclaimed debut EP Tranquilize in July and their standout performance for triple j’s Like A Version in August, Melbourne three-piece Telenova announce their forthcoming Tranquilize Remixes EP out October 29 via Pointer Recordings / Remote Control Records. The EP features contributions from UNO Stereo, Meija, Joe Smallwood & Tim Zen. Listen to Meija’s rework of ‘Tranquilize‘, out now.
Telenova’s recruitment of Los Angeles-based producer Jamie Sierota – professionally known as Meija – on the first ‘Tranquilize’ remix sees the already euphoric track erupt into a synth-driven, pacing electronic soundscape.
Speaking to his contribution to the Tranquilize remixes EP, Meija notes: “I’ve been loving the entire Tranquilize EP and was super pumped when Angeline asked if I’d be up for remixing a song off the new project. I was really drawn to the haunting melody/vocals on the title track and wanted to figure out a way to keep that as the main focus while also trying a more electronic/analog approach on the musical side.”
Of Meija, Angeline Armstrong praises “I’m a huge fan of Meija’s production style and songwriting – he’s so good with weaving multiple textures and layers and rhythms in and out of a track to keep it fresh every new musical phrase. It’s super cool to hear that treatment and a more electronica edge on ‘Tranquilize’. I remember listening to his early demos in LA back in 2016 and have always wanted to do a collab of some sort – it’s a fun experiment to hear Meija’s unique production stamp over ‘Tranquilize’.”
