The Q-Burns Abstract Message album ‘Invisible Airline’ showcased a new direction from the Astralwerks artist’s previous work and featured the vocal talents of Naked Music's Lisa Shaw. For ‘Re-Routed’, Q-Burns Abstract Message took a number of his friends — all well-respected DJs and producers — on the trip with him. Remixed underground hits from the album include the Lisa Shaw track "Shame" which has been reworked electro-stylee by Swedish producer Hakan Lidbo, known for his excellence in the tech house scene with releases on labels such as Paper and Loaded as well as his ground-breaking work with the late ’80s acid jazz pioneers Solid State. Lovesky (Hooj Choons, Hardkiss) gives Lisa's "Innocent" a deep sexy house reworking while world-renowned Philly spinner King Britt gives it a super spare minimal house redo. The third Shaw track "This Time" also gets two workouts: a rocking latin house jam by (Pete) Rivera Rotation (returning the favor Q-BAM paid him remixing his hit "On The Beach") and a full-on electro mix by Q-Burns Abstract Message and a fellow Floridian, Hallucination Records artist Grumptronix. Other super talents that boarded for ‘Re-Routed’ include Eighteenth Street Loungers Thunderball, Midlands UK act Funky Transport, the Russians of Pork Recordings, Tetris, French breaks pioneer and the first DJ on the moon Doctorolive, and prolific Nottingham DJs Neon Heights.
