The REMIXES 2008 press release

Following the massive critical and commercial success of Yoko Ono's ambitious remix collections - Yes, I'm A Witch and Open Your Box (Mindtrain/Astralwerks) which paired the seminal performer with the 21st century underground -- ONO readies for the digital release of "Give Peace A Chance" (The Remixes). The new release (available June 1 at Beatport.com and July 1 at the iTunes Music Store) commemorates the 39th anniversary of the world peace anthem's historic June 1, 1969 recording. The song was recorded during John Lennon and Yoko Ono's infamous week-long "Bed-In For Peace" in Room 1742 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada.

The enduring, landmark song has been re-recorded by ONO as an uplifting, poetic narrative resonating with a contemporary sense of urgency and optimism. The timely release speaks to today's tumultuous political, social and environmental climate. And with it, Ono - the tireless humanitarian - offers a poignant and evocative mantra that is a song of hope, inspiration and limitless possibilities in a time of change.

For this important milestone release, Mindtrain Records again partners with legendary dance label Twisted Records. Together they issued ONO's #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart-toppers "Walking On Thin Ice" (The Remixes) and "Everyman / Everyman".


"No, No, No" (The Remixes) and "You're The One" (The Remixes)

Concurrent with the release of "Give Peace a Chance," Mindtrain/Twisted will also digitally issue the highly sought-after and previously unreleased mixes of ONO's #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charting single "No, No, No" (The Remixes) and #2 charting "You're The One" (The Remixes). "No, No, No" includes superlative reconstructions from international superstars Linus Loves, Tom Novy, Eric Kupper, Friscia and Lamboy, Peter Bailey and more. "You're The One" (which was the #6 Billboard Dance track of 2007) includes vibrant re-workings by Bimbo Jones, Richard Morel (aka Morel), Friscia and Lamboy, and Claude Le Gache.

Already the Hot Shot Debut (#43 with a bullet) on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart (Issue Date: 6/7/2008) and previously the #1 Breakout (Issue Date: 5/31/2008), "Give Peace a Chance" (The Remixes) will be released as a series of three digital-only, environmentally-friendly "green" singles, the third of which will feature a diverse assemblage of international dance/electronic music innovators, galvanizing the familiar and timeless rallying cry: "All we are saying is GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!"
