Color Film "Until You Turn Blue (Anenon Remix)"
Calm + Collect is a new label/collaborative project helmed by XLR8R advice columnist Nick Hook along with a small crew of music and media specialists. The imprint's first release comes from Color Film, a duo fromed by production veterans Daryl Palumbo and Richard Penzone, whose "Until You Turn Blue" will serve as the title track of a four-song EP which also features remixes from Doc Daneeka, Michna, and Anenon—whose dense rework is featured here. While the original "Until You Turn Blue" is a heavily '80s-influenced slice of uptempo pop, Anenon takes the track in a much more subdued direction, wrapping echoes of Color Film's production with engrossing layers of spacey synths and floating textures. The complete Until You Turn Blue EP will serve as the inaugural release from the Calm + Collect label on October 22.
