Early 2006 release. "Three years in the making, the Free Design Redesigned series comes to its logical conclusion. Compiling both vinyl-only volumes of the critically-acclaimed series and including 3 exclusive bonus tracks onto one CD, Redesigned features a stellar selection of today's finest music makers. All have risen to the challenge of reworking classic tunes from '60s soft-pysch masters, The Free Design. Redesigned contains 19 radical reinterpretations for the club, home, or hi-fi. Highlights include Stones Throw's official beat conductor Madlib, who turns 'Where Do I Go' into an Afro-funk celebration. Belle & Sebastian's Chris Geddes envisions '2002 - A Hit Song' as a four-on-the-floor stomper and Grey Album mastermind Danger Mouse & Def Jux legend Murs make their debut collaboration with a wicked twist on the unreleased Free Design track 'To a Black Boy.' Caribou (formerly Manitoba) delivers an insane 8-minute free jazz psych opus while the Super Furry Animals and Stereolab & the High Llamas celebrate their love of the group with their trademark sound. Previously unreleased works include Styrofoam's (Morr Music) fresh take on 'I Found Love,' Koushik with Dudley Perkins (Stones Throw), and renowned turntablist Kid Koala & Dynomite D rework the darkest song in the Free Design's catalog, 'An Elegy.' Far from being another boring tribute piece, Redesigned's musical testimonials speak for themselves. Everyone involved has sought something deeper than your average remix; obvious testaments to the Free Design's unique brand of feel good pop-pysch."
