The Wind-It-Up-&-Go Tale of Dv2.5
“A lot of guys want to be with me…” Created in several non-traditional hodgepodge basement “studios” during a very hot summer, OttO Vector’s self-produced debut Dv2.0 was released in the fall of 2004. “Our collective experience as ‘studio engineers’ was basically nil, and our budget to produce an album was next-to-nothing,” stated OttO Vector’s Andrew “Ginseng” Lemanek. “For better or worse, we made [Dv2.0] entirely on our own. While the results definitely aren’t as polished as our later releases, the finished work is extremely representative of OttO Vector’s sound/vibe during our first year as a band.”
As OttO Vector prepared to release their sophomore album (3-D Odyssey), the initial print run of Dv2.0 quickly dwindled. Rather than simply reprint the sold-out CD, OttO Vector opted to remix/re-master Dv2.0’s original tracks. As an added bonus, the band scoured the vaults to include a handful of unreleased recordings of early demo tracks: Just That, This Life and a live version of Watch What You Say. Rounding out the retitled dv2.5 release- Life Without It [The Slave Remix], remixed by friend and fellow electro-geek Rob Stuart (of Toronto’s SLAVE to the SQUAREwave).
This Life is the first song that Sonic and Ginseng wrote together…nearly 4 years before being released on dv2.5! To maximize exposure to the re-release, dv2.5 was unveiled at the 3-D Odyssey album-release show.
