Prolific in their short lifespan, Red Eye Express released music here on Tempest, as well as on our sister label, Cosmicleaf, and a host of other labels.
Reemixed brings together a collection of tracks released on Cosmicleaf, featuring remixes and collaborations with Zero Cult, Side Liner, D. Batistatos & Cydelix, as well as a selection of previously unreleased remixes from Tempest artists, Arcane Trickster, Lonely Faces, Stickleback, Garagee & The Omm Squad.
You can find links to Bandcamp (above) and Spotify (below).
You can also find it on iTunes, Amazon & pretty much everywhere else.

We will be launching the album this Friday night, in our home town of Melbourne at Geotech #6, with a special DJ mix from Damiano.

We've also put together a special Spotify Playlist as a guide to the new album, featuring all the tracks from the album, a track from each remixer, and (where applicable) the original version.

Lonely Faces - "Silver Moon"

"Silver Moon" is the debut album from Lonely Faces, the alter ego of Melbourne based producer Michael Baum.

"Silver Moon" spans a variety of influences. Diverse in stylistic breadth, the album was created as an aural experiment on classic analogue synthesizers, heavily influenced by classic techno and electro sounds.

Michael made his debut on Tempest Recordings as one half of liquid drum and bass outfit Guilty Hero, on their debut album "Sweethearts", before debuting Lonely Faces on our landmark 50th release.
