For Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber, rebirth is a creative driving force - an artistic device that informs their work and anchors it. As the avant-garde electronic group Tosca, the two artists have lived many musical lives, from their early electronic experiments with tape decks to the blissed-out dub compositions with which they have made their name. Their recent album, OSAM, takes this idea of renewal even further. They have reworked the source material from their ninth record and selected some friends to help make "MIRAGE, the OSAM Remixes."

"MIRAGE" is the name of a tiny cafe in Vienna, halfway between Rupert‘s home and the Tosca studio. Mirage also means illusion, fata morgana. Which - in true Tosca style - has a poetic connection to what music is, the illusion of a reality becoming real. It is a tosca tradition that every album is reworked. These remixes are put together, creating a new album. Ten remix albums have been made from the nine original Tosca albums, and Mirage is the 11th...To celebrate this fact and to remember the theme of recreation and rebirth of the OSAM release, Tosca, for the first time, created two versions of their original songs. Recreating illusions in a real cafe, Mirage is the 20th album of electronic music pioneers TOSCA.

They connect with previous long-term remix collaborators such as Brendon Moeller, Balint Dobozi, D'al Senio, Oberst + Buchner, Sam IRL, Domenico Ferrari, and Cay Talan for an array of remixes which lead to transcendence on the dance floor with piano rises, dubbed out moments and ambient forays. Tosca also sprinkles some of their magic on this album with their reworks and reinterpretations.
