Experimental Irish Electronic musician Jape is next in line for Badlands‘ remix project, where she’s asked friends and sources of inspiration to take on a track each off her new album. That means a journey through many genres.
The remixes will be released over the course of the year. The first to arrive was Art Feynman, followed by Odd Nosdam. Now Jape’s genre-bending interpretation of the LP’s lead track “My Time Will Come Again” has arrived. The remixes will be gathered in a compilation by the end of the year.
This remix project is my way of bringing some of my favorite independent, primarily electronic, music makers together in a bouquet of Badlands interpretations. I’ve purposely asked people with widely different and distinct sounds. People that inspire me.

On new album Call to Love (a follow-up to 2021’s Djinn) she explores “the brutality of love” through analog electronics, sampling and organic orchestration.
