Eclectic Method Remix U2
Audiovisual masters remix the biggest band in the world...
Imagine being tracked down by the biggest band in the world and being asked to remix all their work.
That's exactly what happened to London-based audiovisual trio Eclectic Method, who were recently offered the chance to remix all of U2's music videos.
"They saw one of our mixes on YouTube and asked their management to find us," explained Eclectic Method's Jonny Wilson.
"They gave us everything they had, all the U2 music videos ever made, from 1980 to the present day.
They also gave us some backstage footage and the Zoo TV DVD.
"We jammed, made loops, riffs and scratches using Pioneer's DVJs and edited them all with Sony Vegas, which is the key programme, like Acid for video.
We were given a lot of creative freedom and they were delighted with the result."
The trio's remix of U2's Zoo TV Tour is now showing at www.u2.com
