Originally issued at Archaic Horizon in 2007 as Wasted Magic In The Sound, this collection of Milieu remixes has been refitted to lead the long awaited series of Milieu remix works, Plangent Liqueurs.

For years, remixing has been one of my favorite production activities. It has allowed me the opportunity to repeatedly test out new ideas, while simultaneously challenging myself to mold something new with someone else's sounds. As many of you already know, my remixes have always been so different from their originals that they are basically new pieces, although this is meant with no disrespect to the original artists. Quite the contrary, this decision is made out of respect for them, with my feeling that a carbon copy of anything is just a waste of time. So in many ways, my remixes as Milieu (and subsequently Coppice Halifax) are like islands surrounding the greater landmasses of certain albums from my catalog. For instance, it's easy to hear Three Tone Quintet in the Lumme remix, or New Drugs in the Ascalaphe remix.

At the time this collection was assembled, all of these remixes were pretty rare if not completely unreleased. In the time since then, I've wanted very badly to collect all of the Milieu mixes into an ongoing episodic format, like I've also done with the considerable amount of Coppice Halifax remixes. Like lots of things, plans were made and abandoned numerous times over, so finally it falls to me to bring these tracks back to the surface again - I couldn't be happier. Stick around for subsequent volumes of Plangent Liqueurs, as there are already five in total, with a sixth almost complete.

*EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm aware that all of these tracks, while being my work, exist with the original artists' names on them. Since it's been NINE YEARS (or more in some cases), I have long since lost my contacts with many of these very cool musicians. SO, if one of you has found this release and wants a copy for your contribution to it, PLEASE get in touch with me. It would be great to catch up anyway.
