about

Forever green. Anna Luisa soars again with a serene collection of remixes celebrating the one-year anniversary of her debut release, “Green”. “Green Remixed” brings together nine of Luisa’s closest friends and collaborators to reimagine her verdant atmospheres with renewed energy. ‘80s synths, dance floor rhythms, and glistening ambient textures reimagine “Green” in concert with Luisa’s original intention: creating space for healing, relaxing, and contemplation.

“Green” was released in 2018 to local acclaim, followed with a West Coast tour promoting the album. “Green” represented a transformation as Luisa stepped away from the high-production theatrics that defined her former moniker Jeepneys, and moved towards an earnest, stripped down performance under her own name.

“Green Remixed” reintroduces listeners to Luisa’s “green place”—a new age refuge of lush landscapes and verdant soil, an oasis of collaborators and friends in Los Angeles, where she lives and works. “I imagine us all chilling in a rich green ambiance of plants, herbs, birds, lizards… a conjured space to provide a mental and spiritual break from reality,” said Luisa.

Briana Marela, a Latinx experimental composer whose remix of “Green Place” evokes nostalgia for ‘80s vocoder and Kraftwerk. The Creatrix, a beloved techno wunderkind of Oakland, expands “Maintenance In Loving” by The Creatrix into a late-night pulsating dance track suited for driving through long tunnels. “Green Remixed” extends beyond the conventional remix format, as some remixes that might be considered reworks. Micah James, a Los Angeles-based rapper, extracts Luisa’s chorus and inserts his own rap verse; Xina Xurner, a Los Angeles-based experimental performance artist, extracts Luisa’s harmonies and slows the rhythm down into an ominous, brooding remix of swordplay suited for a dark, candlelit dance club.
