Recent Assemblage 23 Remixes
I had intended to retire from remixing, but since the pandemic happened, I somehow seem to be doing more than ever.
• This is an old one, but it hasn't been available for awhile. Caustic recently made his 2012 remix album available once again and it features my remix of "Bleed You Out".
* Belgium's Psy'aviah recently released a new EP called "Can We Make It Rhyme" featuring Mari Kattman on vocals. I did a remix for this one, but don't sleep on the b-side, a cover of Soft Cell's "Monoculture".
• A dark, experimental take on "Rise of the Proletareans" by .orbix
* A danceable synthpop remix for LA's BlakLight from their new release "Into the Void".
• A sort of indie synthpop remix for our friends Silver Walks on their new release "Tear Me Down"
• A shuffly, dancefloor twist on Watch Clark's "Our Passion, Our Demise" from the remix album "Musik Concrete".
Assemblage 23 Show Cancellations
It's with deep regret that I have to announce the upcoming European shows I had booked for this spring and summer, including our apprecances at the the Plage Noir and Subkult festivals, had to be cancelled. I recently received an amazing job opportunity that I'd have been a fool to pass up, and I don't have the time off available yet to make those performances. We do hope to come back soon once I've accumulate some time off and are very sorry to have to miss seeing our awesome fans.
"Failure" Vinyl is Finally Shipping!
It was beginning to feel like I'd never get to say this, but the vinyl is due to show up at my place tomorrow! What an epic journey this has been. I thank those of you who ordered it again for your patience. My main takeaway from this was: it's a good time to own a vinyl pressing plant.
I will begin shipping immediately. Please note that I need to pack and bulk ship vinyls for the European orders to my shipping partner in Germany, so you folks will have to wait a little longer, but last time we shipped vinyls over there, it didn't take terribly long. But, in ALL cases, please give me time to fulfill these last orders. There's hundreds of orders and just one me, so bear with me. I will post updates on my progress.
Assemblage 23 Remixes Stabbing Westward
Out now is the "Ghost" single from industrial rockers Stabbing Westward. Features remixes from Chris Hall and myself. If this is any indication of what the album will be like, I think they're going to have a huge comeback!
More Delays with Failure Vinyl
So, right after I had let a bunch of people know we expected to ship the "Failure" 20th Anniversary Vinyl around Christmas, we received notice from the pressing plant that they now don't expect to ship it to us until some time in January. I am so sorry for how long you all have had to wait, but this is obviously completely out of my control. The demand for vinyl has meant all pressing plants are running on about a 6 month delay in delivering product, and one can imagine that the supply chain and shipping issues caused by the pandemic have only made that worse. At this stage, all I can do is keep you all as up to date on the situation as I can, and make sure everything gets shipped out as quickly as possible once I get everything in my hands. Sorry again, folks. I know it sucks.
Nerve Filter's "Linear" Coming Down of Digital Services
Based on the fact that it cost more to keep the album online than it was generating in revenue anymore, I've made the difficult decision to remove "Linear", the 2006 album I did as my side-project Nerve Filter, from digital and streaming services. Thanks to everyone who supported this weird release over the years. The album will still be available to download and stream on Bandcamp, but as of next month, it'll be removed from iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.
Take a Look Inside the Helix Track "Slip"
The new Helix EP, "Bad Dream", has been out for a month now, and we thought it might be fun to give you a behind the scenes look at how the track was made.
Helix Releases New EP
I'm a week behind posting this here, but in case you missed it, Helix, my project with vocalist extraordinaire Mari Kattman, put out a brand new EP entitled "Bad Dream". It includes 4 brand new tracks and remixes by Hallowed Hearts (Andrew Sega, ex-Iris) and Mesh/blackcarburning (Mark Hockings). This is a digital-only release, so you can grab it from our Bandcamp or the usual sites.
