► divideD - A Hundred Times EP
► The remixes as described by the band:
Lounge jazz remix:
"Sometimes a falling out that leads to breaches in friendship can also unleash creative energies in the band, and this version is a shining example of that. We’ve felt for a long time that A Hundred Times has the potential to work in a completely new approach with a different instrumentation. So when the aforementioned problems prevented us from testing some of the new gear in our home studio, all we’ve left is an acoustic guitar and the mood of American pubs of the ‘50’s - ‘60’s. To crown the performance and deliver a more authentic feeling and scent of cigar smoke and Tennessee whisky, we’ve invited our friend András Schubert to enrich the song with Saxophone."
Campfire / unplugged:
"We’ve always wanted to make a puritan, acoustic guitar-only version of this song, but we’ve always had something more important to do. The ‘Lounge remix’ already introduced the utilization of acoustic guitars, so now re-arranging the vocals is all we had to do to create a version that makes you remember on cold winter days what it’s like to sit beside a campfire on summer nights for a few minutes."
"Belmont and PsyKlone are huge Cadillacs & Dinosaurs fans for at least twenty years, and the whole theme/design of the Modulus album was based on Konami’s classic arcade games, so it was almost mandatory to create a version fitting for the pixel-graphic artwork of the booklet. Belmont approached TomboFry, who’s known for his 8-bit YouTube videos, to make an 8-bit version of the song. He even programmed an additional solo to it. To see a Cadillac with a divideD logo in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by dinosaurs is a dream came true."
"The 2015 version of the song, as it was released originally on our first material. Different sound and mixing than the album version."
"Live recording of the song as it was performed on Stagediving Festival earlier this year. The whole show was recorded with multiple cameras in good quality, and will be released at a later date. This first song is a token to those who attended the event, and a taste of the band’s live performance for those who have never seen us live."
