Aeroplane Interview

Thanks to Alan, for sending the link for this interview Aeroplane did, wich has a wee mention of Brazil, which apparently doves didn’t like..

The Doves remix they were kind of upset because there was a really cool guitar that was doing the whole track. We never even tought about keeping the guitar we just skipped to vocal.At the end the remix was completely different than original.That is not what they expected at all.But that is what makes us exciting about remixing

Producer Richard Norris (a.k.a. The Time And Space Machine) has posted a clip from his remix of Doves’ ‘Jetstream’ on his MySpace page:

His MySpace blog also claims that the song will be the third single released from the Kingdom Of Rust album.

The Time and Space Machine mix of Doves’ “Jetstream” is now up on the player. It is currently being promo’ed by Heavenly/Virgin.

“Jetstream” is set to become the third single from Doves album “Kingdom Of Rust”.

DJ Sasha Remixes Doves

In a recent widely-syndicated interview, DJ Sasha has revealed that he has just “remixed the Doves single.”

No further information has been given to confirm if the single in question is the forthcoming ‘Winter Hill’ or a third single release from the Kingdom Of Rust album.
