17 Aug Remix City: Tussle + Alexander Hacke of Einsturzende Neubauten, My Disco + Factory Floor
Sifting through mountains of remix trash so you don’t have to, in an attempt to find the ones that contribute to their originals. Today’s installment goes industrial! Einstürzende Neubauten’s Alexander Hacke works his magic on San Francisco’s Tussle, U.K. post-industrial outfit Factory Floor turn Australia’s My Disco into a hardly recognizable form, and the post ends with a throwback to the brutality of Einstürzende Neubauten themselves, as remixed by Adrian Sherwood.
San Francisco’s groovy electronic act Tussle will be releasing their fourth album, Tempest, on September 25th via Smalltown Supersound! “Eye Context” is the first single from the album, now followed by a remix of “Yume No Mori” by Einstürzende Neubauten’s Alexander Hacke, who did a fantastic job working far out electronics in with brutal percussion and funky basslines.
Australia’s “mantra-rock” trio My Disco have finally made use of their namesake to turn out a 12″ of dance remixes on Temporary Residence LTD, featuring reworks by Justin K. Broadrick of Jesu and Godflesh, and UK’s post-industrial Factory Floor. Limited to 1,000 copies, the 12″ coincides with the band’s European tour and is unrelentingly percussive and hypnotic, as they know how to do best. Below is a remix from DFA musicians Factory Floor, along with a couple tracks from their 2011 release, Little Joy.

My Disco – “Closer”
To close this post, some tracks from the German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, whose latest public-facing actions include a 2010 European tour celebrating their 30th anniversary and a reissue of Silence Is Sexy in Summer 2011. May the music video for “Z.N.S” back you back to caveman primitivism, and may the “Yu-Gong” remix by Adrian Sherwood, released in 1985, hypnotize you in the most jarring of ways.
