Absent Without Leave is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist George Mastrokostas, based in Athens, Greece. "Faded Photographs" was originally released in late 2010, including guest appearances by Port-Royal, Stafrænn Hákon, Epic45, Millimetrik and members of Hood, The Declining Winter, Eksi Ekso, Plumerai and Tupolev amongst others. The album received really great reviews from many magazines, webzines, blogs and radio shows worldwide and was promoted with the first ever Absent Without Leave European tour in spring 2011. In 2012 he invited some of his friends and artists he admires to remix all the tracks of it and one year later Faded Photographs Remixes is presented as a double album of 28 remixes, with a total duration of more than two and a half hours. The artists who gave a new dimension to the tracks of Faded Photographs are the following: Dalot, (ghost), Reigns, Aerosol, Ruxpin, Sun Glitters, Eleventhfloorrecords, SubtractiveLAD, Ghost Bike, Landing, Arc Lab, Kontakte, The Echelon Effect, Dedo, Elika, Oppressed By The Line, Dreissk, Plastik Joy, Keef Baker, Crisopa, Dankerque (Giardini Di Mirò’s Jukka Reverberi & Con_Cetta), Slow Dancing Society, To Destroy A City, Midas Fall, Mark Harris, Olan Mill, Ex Confusion, Tokyo Bloodworm. "Faded Photographs Remixes" is a great collection of tracks, which appeals to all fans of dreamy electronica, cinematic ambient, ethereal shoegaze and atmospheric post-rock. This is a limited edition of 500 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies, packaged in a lovely hand-stamped white recycled cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper and an insert printed on nice fabric paper.
