DSX – Anonymous

Here’s a new piece of patent leather synth music to pre-order. My friend Daniel Myer of Haujobb let me know about DSX. This is a side project of Dejan Samardzic. My favorite on this is “Don’t Resist” which has a proper EBM feel to it. The pacing of the song’s arrangement is really good. The vocals come in and out in a nicely psychotic manner. I also really like “Information War” which reminds me a lot of David Carretta’s darker stuff. Expect to see that one many a future DJ mixes. It will also be available on Vinyl. Listen now and grab it December 14th.

“The first song ‘Demonic feat Emily Steigerwald’ reminds me of just enough Dive (Welcome to Hell) mixed with Gitane Demone’s (Incendiary Lover) eery singing style…. but better. ‘Don’t Resist’ is a relentless bass-driven track with a detuned synth-lead reminding me to The Normal’s (Warm Leatherette)… but harder.” – peek-a-boo-magazine.be

Trade Remixes

Now that I’ve finished my album I am putting together the same album full of remixes. Instead of paying 20 people to do remixes for me I am trading a remix of my own for one of theirs. This serves three purposes. I don’t have to shell out a bunch of cash. It forces me to work on material that’s not my own which I find a challenge. Lastly, every remix I do for someone else gets promoted by that artist therefore extending my own name into the world. I know this is obvious but maybe this post will trigger you to go trade with your friends, fans and if your lucky music heros. This weekend I am finishing remixes for Haujobb and Steinkind. See how they just got some free press?

“A remixer uses audio mixing to compose an alternate master recording of a song, adding or subtracting elements, or simply changing the equalization, dynamics, pitch, tempo, playing time, or almost any other aspect of the various musical components. Some remixes involve substantial changes to the arrangement of a recorded work, but many are harmonic, such as creating a “vocal up” version of an album cut that emphasizes the lead singer’s voice.” – Wikipedia
