When we last checked in with Gary Daly he had released his new album titled ‘Gone from Here’. And now he has released a remix EP titled ‘Gone From Here Remixed’ as a gift to his fans (link below). The remix is far from the original, concentrating on a few songs from that album (‘Time It Takes’, ‘I Work Alone’, ‘Low Tide’, and ‘Antony’). I would recommend listening to the originals first and then diving into this set of remixes. You will not be disappointed. You will not only notice the contrasts between this EP and the album but the contrasts and spread-wings style freedom the remixer was obviously given. They are more like reinterpretations than remixes. Each song is made fresh, and fresh again. Not to say the originals weren’t fresh but with this EP they are given extra lives as opposed to new life. Brilliant.

About ‘Gone From Here Remixes’ by Gary Daly
“It was always my intention to mess with the tracks from ‘Gone From Here’ in a creative way. Back in the day with China Crisis, Eddie and I would always look forward to creating 12-inch mixes of our most popular singles and always relished the chance to be experimental with the B-Sides. The ‘Gone From Here Remix’ EP is a fun thing with some great artists involved.”
