In the last RSE Update I mentioned that older releases from RSE would be redistributed via CD Baby and all other major digital music stores in the coming months.
I would like to take this time to announce that the first re-release will be Joey Tee & Pica – The Split EP (Remastered Deluxe Edition)!
Originally, I had planned to remaster the original release, add one or two previously unreleased tracks, a previously unreleased remix and call it a day. As luck would have it, Joey Tee contacted me two or three weeks ago. He had a hard drive crash on his computer and lost everything and asked if I could send him everything that we had recorded together. As I was going through my files, I found a bunch of previously unreleased songs and demos by both Joey and Pica. Some of these songs were held back for solo albums that I had planned to record with Pica and Joey Tee. It didn’t work out and they released some stuff on their own through Joey’s own label, Str84ward Entertainment.
It turns out that I have rediscovered enough material to add a second disc! (Internally, this “Deluxe Edition” is being called The Split EP, Vols. 1 & 2.)
Again, these are mostly demos – but I have assembled a track listing of 10 additional songs, plus 3 bonus mixes and a still-to-be-recorded RSE Message for 2014. It is coming sooner than you might think. I’ve already mastered or remastered everything except for two of the songs on the second disc and I expect the entire project to be finished by the end of this week!
Once I’ve finalized the track listing, I will post the full details as well as the release date.
