SOLDIER'S DISEASE

OFF THE SIDE, INTO THE OTHERS (TRIBUTE FOR VOICE)

offtheside

My good friend Ryan Martin made this collage and this mix for Soldier’s Disease some time ago but I hadn’t posted it thanks to general inactivity, which should be remedied soon. It’s such a great mix that I had to get it into the world, so here ya go. You probably know Ryan from his solo work or in York Factory Complaint, On a Clear Day, Hanel Koeck. He is also one half of DAIS Records and runs his own cassette imprint Robert & Leopold. York Factory Complaint have a release coming out on Chondritic Sound soon. Below is what Ryan has to say about his mix:

“When I was putting together the tracks on this mix, I was gathering a collection of people or songs that I had an unusual, albeit interesting fascination with. Whether it was the people themselves or what they created, something compelling drew me to these tracks and how I understood them very well on their own. When I placed together these works, the invisible lines connected themselves in my mind and hopefully, with the help of technology, I was able to get these connections across to a yet to be determined audience.

Stated as a “tribute for voice” but it’s not the voice of any one person speaking or vocal accompaniment. It’s more in tribute to the voice this collection of people have found and when the pieces were put together, one voice was pushed along. This entire mix will make sense to someone, I hope it isn’t just me.”

SEWER TRANSMISSION

My friend Jonathan Canady made this great mix for the site. You may know him from his latest post-punk-meets-kraut project Diamond Cult, album covers he’s designed, and last but most certainly not least his own insane  maze of psychosexual paintings. Forthcoming is an hour-long synthesizer horror excursion titled “Am I Dreaming? Yellow” via cassette on Chondritic Sound.

STEAM UP

Good friend and amazing musician Damion Romero (known for his earth-moving heavy tonal work under his own name, and previously as Speculum Fight) offered up a recording of a radio show he’d done over 8 years ago playing exclusively Steam Engine records, something he has an impressive collection of. So that brings us here, where you can hear some of his favorite sounds from of these now extinct beasts.

STREETCLEANER

aural dislocation, , , , ,
by greh @ 6:49am on July 19, 2011

New mix by one of the deep crew, psycho KHR from Michigan. He runs the mighty fine Nurse Etiquette label and all of its subsidiaries (Annex Scum, Gifts of Vacant Mortuary, etc), which I hear will be morphing into Nostilevo. We operated dismal scrap metal sound together under the guise of Chainfight. Khris’ current incarnation is the intruiguingly named Scorpio & Glass, who has had a handful of releases on cassette, one of which was on previous mixtape contributor Ryan Martin’s Robert & Leopold label. Rumor has it that he’s working on a follow-up to this mix, so keep your ears peeled for that one.

STRANGERS DIE EVERY DAY

by greh @ 10:03am on March 2, 2011

This is a mix I made while still living in Michigan that’s been floating on various memory cards until just a few days ago. Unfortunately I can’t place the piece between the Burning Star Core/Prurient collab and the Nate Young track as I’ve lost the tracklist for this mix some time ago. I like to fall asleep during the hazy moments of this one, engage in some horrific dream and let Jagger’s synth workout at the end be my alarm clock.

OCCUR

by greh @ 4:38pm on February 18, 2011

I’d asked my man Michael Dresden (AKA Amongst) to make a mix for the site some time ago, since his tastes range across damn near everything and a little bit more. He’s been making music in isolation since the 80s and I’ll be shedding light on some of that material later this year. But for this he picked some of his favorites, and it hits a totally weird zone starting off with one of my favorite Vangelis pieces. Check it out.
