Rich Aucoin Treats 'United States' to Deluxe Expanded Edition
It will add on new remixes and instrumentals
Published Mar 31, 2021Rich Aucoin is taking his United States on a victory lap. Today the beloved East Coast artist has announced he'll treat his 2020 album to a deluxe expanded edition.
The deluxe reissue will arrive on April 23 via Haven Sounds. It will include two remixes of tracks from the album by Double A and Steve Bays, as well as throw in an entire bonus disc that features instrumental versions of all the tracks from United States.
"I'm really excited to include the album with these remixes as well as releasing all the instrumentals for the first time," said Aucoin in a statement. "Howie Beck's (Charlotte Day Wilson/River Tiber/Feist) mix really shines in the instrumentals too. It was great to work with someone on back to back records as we've got a great work flow established. Since I wrote this record on my bicycle to demo versions of these instrumentals while cycling across the United States, people can now hear what I heard over and over again as I figured out the lyrical content while observing my surroundings in 2018."
Right now, you can hear the remix of the album track "Walls" done by Double A over here or down below.
"After touring the world as a prolific Drum n Bass artist, Double A attended King's College with me where we met and where he convinced me to change up my usual sit to the side of the stage style performance while accompanying a projection of the films I write my music to to get actually into the audience and play a more dance style set," said Aucoin. "Playing Famous Players with Small Town DJs really was my first foray into what the show eventually became as its mainstay (while seated shows still occasionally occur as well). I was excited when Double A expressed interest to remix 'Walls' upon its release and give it his classic Drum n Bass treatment."
