Charley, the man behind the the Second System project, started making music in the late '90s after getting his first synthesizer more or less by accident. After studying the Electronic Music Producer program at SAE in 2003 he started producing and remixing non-commercial Industrial / EBM / Noise tracks using the pseudo Project Wintermute.
In 2008 he decided to change this moniker to Second System and along with the name the genre was also transformed into a more melodic one; something in-between indie, synthpop, electronic 8-bit dance with, sometimes, a few experimental sounds.
Second System about his remix:
-- All started with the crazy idea of flying to Gothenburg for a Thermostatic concert. I was pretty stunned by this new song "Animal" and I got this idea of including a piano and combining Louise's vocals with a stutter effect. In fact, I was always looking for a singer in my own projects so with this remix project I got the chance of mixing with vocals. It took some time getting the foundation, because I only used the vocals and had to rebuild the whole song around it. But from that point it was a great fun, experimenting with different beats and vocoder settings ... and, oh, and i added 5 bpm :).
