Remake of the 2012 Mad Essence album

Transmission 2.0 / Q & A

Q: A re-release?
A: It’s a ‘remake’, not just a ‘re-release’. Same ‘Transmission’, only ‘better, faster, stronger’. More modern, more on point, and closer to what is was supposed to be back in the day.

Q: Why?
A: Two more months. Exactly so much was required to bring the album to the desired state. Alas, we jumped the gun, having released it on December 21, 2012. The correction of this annoying mistake was only a matter of time…

Q: What has changed?
A: Mixing, mastering, sound design, 40% of instrumentation.

Q: What’s the same as before?
A: Tracklist, vocal parts, 60% of instrumentation.

Q: What will happen to the previous version of ‘Transmission’?
A: We don’t intend to delete the 2012 version, it will remain in digital distribution services.

Q: Any bonus tracks?
A: Yes, one, but it’s Bandcamp-exclusive (available after buying the entire album). We believe that bonus tracks have little-to-no place on a conceptual release.
