E-603 recently released a remix of Passion Pit’s “Seaweed Song” on the music site Earmilk. The track is a preview of the E-603 remix album The Remixes Vol 1 which, as with all E-603 albums, will be available for free download at http://www.e-603.com.
New Hampshire’s (hence the “603”) Ethan (“hence the “E”) Ward has been creating a nostalgic yet original blend of music made from samples as E-603 since 2002. Emerging from the mashup scene that produced Girl Talk, The Hood Internet and others, Ward takes a more musical approach than his peers, including his own instrumentation in his unprecedented, superfast cut and paste production aesthetic.
Ward’s third album KSMOKESHOW showes him utilizing samples from as many as fifteen songs at once and ultimately constructs some of the most elaborate electronic songs out there. To date, E-603’s free albums have been downloaded more than 50,000 times and tracks from SMOKESHOW have already racked up tens-of-thousands of plays prior to any promotion.
In addition to the upcoming The Remixes Vol 1, which also includes remixes of tracks by Robyn, Miguel and Ellie Goulding, Ward has also been producing his own wholly original, non-sample-based music that varies in content from Daft Punk-style French House to Southern-style Trap Hip-Hop slammers.
