London-based duoJockstraphave today announcedI<3UQTINVU, a fully remixed version of their Mercury Prize shortlisted 2022 albumI Love You Jennifer Bby the band’s Taylor Skye.I<3UQTINVU- I Love You Cutie, I Envy You - is set for release on 3 November via Rough Trade Records.
The remix record is the brainchild of Skye, who was making multiple versions of the album’s original tracklisting to stay inspired during the writing ofI Love You Jennifer B. The guest features on the remix record range from Ersatz, who inspired Skye to make music many years ago to IAN STARR who he only connected with online a few months ago.
Skye explains more aboutI<3UQTINVU, saying, “Some of the remixes are almost three years old and some are under six months old. We played a run of shows with Babymorroco when our album came out to test them all. The main thing I was interested in whilst making this music was the sonic palette and the texture of the music. The musical material didn't matter too much, it was just about the sound. That's often what moves me, not necessarily the notes but the sound. However, I'm not even sure what that means and if music can really be separated like that. Maybe it's too paradoxical. Well… it's an experiment! I'm still learning.”
