LOS ANGELES, June 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Electronic producer and composer
Harrison Lee, a member of the Canadian group Secret Squares, is
remixing the house-electro-funk single, "Dance Criminal," by Swedish
singer-songwriter Linda Lind. The HAL9K Remix is releasing June 10 on
Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Lind's website, www.lindalind.com and at www.hairdurecords.com.
Lind and Appu Krishnan, also known as The Professor, produced the
original version. "The original mix has an amazing anthemic style," Lee
said. "I wanted to take that big sound and try and infuse more funk
into the rhythm. I have a deep love of harmony and texture and I find
that it's an important part of how I produce. Linda's song has a great
hook and lots of cool ear candy to work with. I have experience
remixing in a number of electronica genres, but I felt this remix
should definitely be a straight-ahead house banger!"
Lee attended the University of Southern California and is a longtime
collaborator of Kurtis Schultz, also known as Kusch from Secret
Squares. The group is signed to Hairdu Records.
A versatile and burgeoning talent, Lee's film music credits include the
films Cheyenne is Burning, CBC's The Journey of the Polar Bear, National Geographic's Ice Bear, Orc Wars, File Not Found, Osiris Entertainment's Awaken, and Far, a nine-time award winning short that swept the independent film festival
circuit last year. Lee's television music credits include Devious Maids (ABC/Lifetime), Ballup StreetBall (Halfpenny Marvel Noise) and the 2007 Western Canada Summer Games.
Lind said, "It's been a pleasure working with Harrison on this remix. He
brought a whole new vibe to the song, which is exactly what I wanted.
The remix he made is super funky and is going to be perfect for the
club. His ear for writing film music shines through as well with the
rich chords and melodies that he has added."
Music producer and vocal coach Johan Jämtberg discovered Lind. Together
they wrote the song Oskyldig (Innocent) that was recorded by the Swedish pop group E.M.M.A and released on their
album Vänner (Friends). Most recently, Lind sang a live duet in Egypt with Julio Iglesias, a
Spanish singer-songwriter whose sold more than 300 million records
