One by The Mercy Cage too. check out our remix of Sexy Tragic Muse.
Was going to hold this version of the song off for the album, but i’m so in love with it, that we’ll put it out now. Because i got to have one of my very favorite artists on this track: Shine Brida
Brida STOMPS this. It’s very bleak and very beautiful and full of perfect moments. & Kitty Rine glues the song together with a lovely choral vocal.
It’s a free download on bandcamp (or pay what you want), because we know times are tight & we’d love everyone to have the chance to take a listen. On spotify/apple music/itunes etc in the next couple days.
Backed with a remix, ‘No Heroes Dub’ that’s a little glitchy, a little Hip Hop, & more than a littlenoisy 90’s Industrial.
something a little different. a remix i just finished for left-field electro act OUJI. a little housey. many sidechained compressors. check out the original on OUJI’s debut E.P ‘Body Of Work’, out now for free on spotify, bandcamp & soundcloud.
Check out the original below. from the E.P ‘Body Of Work’. which is one of the more interesting records i’ve heard in a while. 5 tracks of smart left-of-center joyous Electropop. with at least a couple of clever programming tricks in each track that’ll give most producers a “how’d they do that” moment. OUJI is also one half of my favourite glitch-hop duo MGC.
After the release of the single ‘Walking Ghost Phase’ in early 2017, New Zealand Industrial
act The Mercy Cage return with an E.P featuring acclaimed Wellington-based vocalist
Justine O’Gahdra-Sharp, plus guest appearances from U.S Synthwave duo Reapers,
Romanian Soprano Kirine, Auckland Guitarist Dean Young (Built). & Venezuelan session
Cellist Carolina Teuel.
“By turns droney, dirgey, experimental & pretty, ‘Five Zeroes’ is a collection of songs from
the forthcoming album abstracted from the narrative that share an aesthetic, rather than tell
a linear story. Though in a way, a there’s an emergent narrative all its own…”
The 8 track ‘Five Zeroes: An Other Suicides Companion’ E.P is available for streaming now
on Spotify, and for download on bandcamp now.
Justine O’Gahdra-Sharp has been active since the mid 1990’s in the Christchurch and Auckland Industrial/Goth scenes. She has performed in bands such as The Gael, Flinch, DIS with David Khan, Roshgar, and her own group Pulchritude.
Built is the new recording project from singer/songwriter/guitarist ?Dean Young (breathingunderwater, This Theory Of Static, The Mercy Cage). Built will follow up This Theory Of Static’s critically acclaimed debut album with an E.P due out early 2018
Kirine is a German-based Romanian Soprano.
Carolina Teruel is a classically trained Venezuelan Session Cellist
Ami Shimada is a US based Japanese actress.
The Mercy Cage is an Industrial/cyber-noir band from Auckland, New Zealand.
Snapshots of a Surveillance Manifesto is an electro/industrial EP by Hungarian cyberpunk novelist & researcher Planetdamage. features a remix by TMC.
Out now on soundcloud, bandcamp and direct download below:
Here’s a remix of the song Praise Be by Auckland band Lichtbeuger.
note: remix contains a sample of Norfolk Jubilee Quartette’s Ride On King Jesus. Which sounds like the name of the greatest 70s bikersploitation movie ever…
here’s a quick and dirty cover mixed this morning that evolved from a studio improv session a couple of weeks ago. A hot mess of analog synthesis: FEARvLOATHINC’s [Brand] New Home.
In 1997 Bombay girl was the most cyberpunk record I’d ever heard.
A collage of cutting-edge bodymusik, oblique pop culture sampling, numan-esque synthpop, and shouty new wave. An artifact from the future that still holds up today.
Anyway, if you’ve never heard it, check out the original below. It’s way better than this:
A lost 2004 remix of the song Head Of Gabriel for legendary (and prolific) U.K Darkwave act ATTRITION has just surfaced on their new “Part Time Lovers – The 2004 Release. i haven’t heard this in 10 years….
“The lost remixes from 2004 Dante’s Kitchen album sessions…
Originally destined for a remix collection that never materialised at the time, finally rescued from the archives, lovingly mastered at The Cage by Martin and allowed out to play here..”
picked this ancient home organ up at a junk store many years ago with the intent of circuit bending, but it has an anachronistic charm as is. a home organ squarewave generator.
here’s how it sounds run through a distortion pedal & three different hardware reverbs. an improvised live looping piece from 2011:
