In 2019, Thomas Park suggested to work with Mahorka on a new project, to use his generative composition techniques coded in Python to remix one or more releases. Label curator Ivo Petrov furnished Thomas with a set of tracks from the early Mahorka catalog [2001-2006], selected specifically for the purpose at hand. Using his Python tools, Thomas extracted and edited fragments/loops from the tracks and created different sets of iterations.The results were quite magical to Thomas. He felt that there was something special behind the sounds, the combinations, so he arranged an album out of selected tracks, further mastered them and presented that as a suggestion for Mahorka release. After hearing the album Ivo realised this should be the perfect revival of the "Mahorka Remixes" series that had had three volumes, 10-12 years earlier (reworks of Mahorka material by Iversen (vol.2) and Adrian Juarez (vol.1 and 3)). So here is "Mahorka Remixes Vol.4 (Early Mahorka Iterations)".
