We Killed Privacy – Remix LP

Shroombab proudly presents the “We Killed Privacy Remix LP” with seven remixes of her work with Kitsune. It is available via Bandcamp and will be sold via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon & more from October 24th, 2016 onwards.

The seven remixes plus the original song are released under a creative commons licence. If you do not officially want to buy the remixes, you can stream and download them for free as well.

But please be aware: The artist and remixers donate their work to fighting for privacy in the digital age. If you enjoy what you hear you can donate money or your spare time to one of the following privacy organisations: AK Vorrat AT (Austria), C3W (Austria), quintessenz (AT) feat. Big Brother Awards, Digitale Gesellschaft (DE), CCC (DE)EDRi (Europe).

All the money that is collected via the bandcamp site and the stores will be contributed to the privacy organisations as well. Please spread the message and help us all to escape capitalism driven surveillance!

A huge “thank you” goes out to the following people and organisations: The streaming server is provided by kapper.net, the graphic cover design is done by Kid Atari. All the credits for the musical remixes go to the remixers: Kid Atari, Polarity, Alpha Roots Dub Project, Joachim Losehand, Freizeitlärm, Franjazzco & DMG.

First remixes in progess..

Actually the first remixes are in the making. Polarity put some video from his remixing process online. If you ever wanted to see how drum&bass producers work in their studio – here’s your chance 🙂

Remix! – We Killed Privacy – Remix!

We Killed Privacy“ by Shroombab feat. Kitsune is all about the end of privacy that we caused ourselves through our behaviour within the internet and the usage of technical gadgets like smartphones that we carry around all the time.

“We Killed Privacy” is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence, called  “Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0)”.

It is all about sharing and spreading the message – although this might sound absurd to you when you first hear that – and it is all about REMIXING. Your own remix will spread the message the most. All genres, all styles welcome.

Here are the FILES for REMIXING, ready for you to download (Surround Sound WAV with 24 bit).

Please use the hashtag #wkprivacy for sharing your remixes and the original track online. Please send all the remixes to shroombab@bassofhope.at – All your remixes will be collected, listened to and will be listed on the website wekilledprivacy.org.

I also plan to release a compilation with the best 10- 15 remixes by the end of 2016. So if you want a deadline for contributing, make sure to send your remixes by June 30th, 2016 to be considered for the compilation. The money that will collected by the release of your remixes, will be 100 % donated to a privacy organisation (probably European Digital Rights Organisation EDRi).

No boarders: All styles of music are welcome. You can also re-record the vocals with your own vocalist if you want to contribute everything totally in your own style.

Here are the Lyrics of

Alert, alert
Bad news for you
We killed privacy
And gagged democracy
We lost it
Did you know?

Google knows what you’re looking for.
Facebook knows what you like.
Twitter knows what you read.
Your Smartphone knows where you are.
Bad enough, isn’t it?

But it comes worse.
Instagram knows what you eat/look like.
Amazon knows what you buy.
Supermarkets know if you are pregnant.
Your bank knows when you are broke.
Good life, isn’t it?

We have come to an end of privacy
The end of our secrets in our lifes
We killed privacy
And gagged democracy
We lost it, we killed it
We can’t blame anybody else except us.

We accept all the Terms and Conditions.
Without reading them.
We want to use the services for free.
We pay with our data instead.

Sharing is the norm.
Secrecy is out.
Today a selfie in Vienna, tomorrow in Berlin.
Who is telling us: Stop!
We stopped thinking before acting.
Is it too late?
