Breathe (The Horrorist Remix) – Resistor

Breathe EP  Resistor

A few months ago I was contacted by the band Resistor to do a remix for a song called Breathe. Resistor is an EBM band from Bogota Colombia. Since I had a great time there when I performed there and my friends Delectro, Modernista and Equitant were also doing remixes I said yes. The release is on Black Leather Records which is owned by Victor Lenis aka Cute Heels. Victor is a bit crazy but his music is always great.

I did the remix almost entirely on my now large Eurorack modular. The drums are Tiptop Audio 808s sequenced by a Tiptop Circadian Rhythms. I layered the snare with a Synthesis Technology E355 wavetable LFO. The bassline is a combination of a Microbrute and Synthesis Technology Cloud Generator. There is some sequenced filtering going on with a Toppobrillo Multifilter. The sequenced line that comes in at 2:45 is from an Intellijel Metropolis. The reverb it arrives under is a MakeNoise Erbeverb. I decided to re-sing the vocals. I used a Shure SM7 mic, API 512c micpre and Izotope’s Nectar plug-in. There is some delay at the end on the snares from a Modcan Dual Delay. There are some vocals being manipulated for effect and those were done using a MakeNoise Phonogene. This release breaks the ice for 2015. Expect some good things!
