Amour Records presents: Lia Hide – “Fairytales Remixed”.
A year after the release of “Tells No Fairytales” the multitasking songstress Lia Hide invited and cooperated with the crème de la crème of musicians and producers in Greece.
The result “Fairytales Remixed”, a high standard electro album that spreads from Ambient to House, Minimal Techno, and Chill-Out, with Pop and EBM/Dark Wave surprise-production.
Lia Hide has up to now 3 studio albums in her discography and plenty of working experience with electro music and features in compilations (Planetworks, Sound of Everything and Global Underground, Grecospectiva/Amour Records, and more).
Her charismatic voice easily transforms from aethereal to dominant and from playful to fragile, combined with her almost pop-friendly songs, making them the most appropriate colors in the canvas of artists who transformed her.
The established and beloved K. Vita (Κ.Βήτα), Monsieur Minimal, Rsn, ION, Robin Skouteris, ELIOT, Tareq, and MCD, together with the upcoming artists Runes, Kuppo, Incirrina, Resonoot, Mr. Collage radically change the tracks from “Tells No Fairytales” but also from her previous discography to imaginative remixes.
