When it comes to cool electronica and mesmerizing dance music, Norway’s Sienná never disappoints. So how cool is it that she is revisiting her catalogue to reissue a series of remixes designed for the dance floor? Very!
“Motions” is the first in this series – with more to come. Check out the exciting new video:
I asked Sienná what inspired these new mixes: “The very best part of being an independent artist is that you can do what you want when you want,” she said. “There´s no concept of ‘need.’ I felt like I wanted to release some re-mastered EDM remixes, and I got a distribution well suited for such groovy music as well. So simply I thought, why not! ”
Which songs are slated for remix/remaster? ” My current plan is to randomly choose one of the dance tracks I already have from my own discography, remix it, and release it – one release a month for a certain period of time. The first release is scheduled on 6th November, and the second one on 3rd December. I´m currently working on my 3rd remix/single for release in January 2018. ”
Can you tell me about the technical aspects of the remix?” I´m mainly using Logic pro x and Denon MC4000. Bit rate is typically 24-bit/192Hz. Traditionally speaking, my tracks tend to have so many layers of synths and pads, which I think is ok as production of original music. But I´m also trying to aim at distribution for live DJs this time. After performing as a live-act and DJ, I understood that it works much better to keep it simple live. So basically, my songs are going through weight-loss programs. ”
Besides the remixes, are you currently performing live, either as a solo act or as a DJ? “I´m mostly busy sitting in a studio for the remixes. And all the works around the releases like artworks, registrations, promotions etc. The sound engineering is what I´m really enjoying / eager to learn more at this moment. It should be fun to perform outside sometimes, of course. But I must give priority to something as we have only 24 hours a day. If I had to choose, I would love to produce inside more than perform outside more. It´s a phase.”
