What a beautiful opportunity to be able to talk again about Fibolae, the latest album from Scanner aka Robin Raimbaud, released at the end of December 2017 on Pomperipossa Records ( Anna von Hausswolff ‘s Label ).

 If this 2017 Scanner release has passed you by,  I highly recommend you take the time to listen to this spofity play list. And why not buy this beautiful album, in my opinion one of the best releases of 2017, via the links I’ll leave at the end of this article.

But the reason why I talk once more about this album, is due to a nice gesture by Robin Raimbaud.
I‘ll leave you to read his words about this digital download ep, the one he offers us as a free download or as a “name your price” release on bandcamp.

“Back in December 2017 I ran a competition in association with BLEND and ROLI to offer prizes to anyone who wanted to remix my track Footpaths taken from my latest album, Fibolae. I provided all the stems to the music online, featuring the percussion, melodies and so on, and offered these out to anyone who wished to remix them.

We received many entries, and chose Shane Williams / X1L3 as the overall winner. An extremely limited edition 7″ single was then pressed up, with only five copies available in the world and given away randomly for free at my show at London’s Iklectik in February 2018. So many of the other entries were so strong that I didn’t want them to simply evaporate into the ether so here’s a special edition EP featuring my own personal favourites form these remix sessions, offering up all manner of alternative approaches to the original tune. Thanks to everyone who entered the competition!”  (Robin Raimbaud)
