Trouble & Bass is one of those labels that consistently makes our jaws drop, and today was no exception. When we saw the words ‘Star Eyes‘ and ‘Deathface‘ in the same sentence, we knew we were going to be slamming our heads like crazy (or at least internally; our coworkers tend to get confused if we just start wailing on our bodies in the middle of the office….sorry guys, kids just wanna have fun.) The two T&B producers are amongst our favorite current electronic musicians, and Deathface’s jagged, raw remix of the beautiful floorkiller ‘The Night’ just proves that these two really need to collaborate again soon. Download it here and get ready to thrash.
????? are no strangers to collaborations with experimental weirdos; earlier this year they released a fantastic collection of official Psychic TV merchandise with Genesis P-Orridge and made our dreams of owning a New Era PTV hat into reality. Now the NYC label have turned to another industrial legend. Douglas Pearce, the mastermind behind the sometimes-controversial project Death In June, has worked with the label to create a capsule collection of shirts and jackets just in time for the 30th anniversary of DIJ.
As with Psychic TV, Trouble & Bass queen Star Eyes has made a mix spanning DIJ’s discography. From the tribal post-punk of ‘In The Nighttime’ to the apocalyptic piano ballad ‘Peaceful Snow’, it’s a wonderful trip down memory lane for long-time fans, and a great primer for new ones. Listen to it below, and read the engaging interview with Douglas Pearce here.
Last night, Trouble & Bass tweeted some news that made us all happy. Swedish electro darling Little Jinder (aka Jinder, aka Little Jinder again now…we think…) is releasing a new single! The always-interesting NYC label has posted the entire tracklist, which includes remixes from Seba and French DJ Myd. But it’s the original we love best, a haunting piece of heavy dancepop with Jinder begging someone to turn out the sun.
