Revisions Revisions is a
collection of remixes that Los Angeles based producer Nobody (Elvin
Estela) has completed in the last 5 years. Between albums for a diverse
group of labels such as Ubiquity, Mush and Plug Research, Nobody faced
many a deadline in completing remixes for various artists from across
the world. This collection of remixes reflects a broad range of musical
styles that Nobody has dabbled in throughout his career, from the
vintage 60's softpsych of The Free Design to the underground hiphop of
LA based MC Busdriver.

Nobody's debut Soulmates
(2000) was the album Elvin had been making all his life - the best bit
of beats he had made in his bedroom combined with fresh new tracks he
did with the cream of the LA underground. From these roots, Nobody
still claims hip-hop as his first love, and is always willing to lend a
hand to his peers when called on. Build an Ark's "Always There" ode to
great, lost jazz musicians is turned into a tribute from Sach to his
former partner in rhyme Yusef Afloat. Busdriver's "Unemployed Black
Astronaut" becomes the theme to finding a home in outer space. Ellay
Khule is called on to offer a different point of view on Adventure
Time's "Whetting Whistles." Instrumental hip-hop artists Presto and Ill
Suono get their tunes redone with a new palette of samples and
melodies. More than just supplying a different track for the original,
Nobody always seeks to support the message and meaning of the song with
it's prefect sonic partner.

With the release of Pacific
Drift (2003), Nobody entered new territory, twisting the sounds of 60's
psych into something that was half dissonant pop and half hip-hop
banger. This intriguing sound eventually attracted the ears of various
bands and labels, all interested in hearing Nobody's take on their
music. The Free Design's dark and mysterious "Girl's Alone" is
transformed into an instrumental cover, with Ikey Owens (Mars Volta)
faithfully reproducing the song's soaring melodies. Mia Doi Todd's
"Autumn" sounds like a lost outtake from the Pacific Drift sessions.

Electronic indie acts Her
Space Holiday, Clue to Kalo, Pepe California and The Postal Service get
their glitchy electronics swept from under their feet and find
themselves afloat sparse bangers with their own melodies turning in on
it's self. Nobody even tackled a full on rock song, courtesy of Domino
Records' Clearlake, and turned their Jesus and Mary Chain wash into a
stabbing 60's freakbeat anthem.

Although these remixes span
several years and reflect changes in Nobody's sound and direction,
Nobody made sure that they form a cohesive whole when presented as an
album. Revisions Revisions takes in 5 years of different artists,
styles and sounds and unites them under Nobody's vision of "psychdelia
for hip-hop kids and hip-hop for psychedelic kids".
