satan on 6(music)

Yesterday, as part of Mary Anne Hobbs' metal week on her 6Music show, she played that remix I did of Pijn's 'Denial', which was, obviously, pretty cool. But, to make things even better, she asked me to do a sort of interview thing - which was just me talking into my phone voice recorder about what it's like to remix a metal track, and which she played on air just before the remix went out. Pretty good, right?

You can listen back to the show here (I'm on about 1 hour 16 mins in, right after Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps - an excellent choice I might add)

Or, if you're short of time/ patience, I cut up my glorious minute-or-so in the limelight for your pleasure:

Oh, and the Pijn remix is here:

I also mentioned a 'post-metal' album I'd just released on my label, which some of you might've twigged is that new Falconetti one I put out a few weeks ago. Very much worth your time, even if you don't like post-metal:


Nice one, eh?

Genève remix

A long time ago - think this was maybe last summer as it goes - Zakè, the man behind the incredible label Past Inside The Present, got in touch and asked if I'd remix a track of his. "Of course!" I said, not really knowing what to do. Zach had said that he was really into the ambient techno side of things at that particular moment, and as the sun was out, I decided to flex my 4/4 chops a little. 

The remix is itself was basically just one stem, a really long sun-scorched drone which lilted and waned as it drifted on. I decided to not do anything to it, but roll with it, adding layers and pushing it forward with some drums. I'd also planned to add some guitar ambience as a nice little bed for it, but as the loop is wavering and fluttering, I could never find the right key for the guitars to sit with it. So, I added them at the end instead, just on their own, as a nice little bookend.

Anyway, so I did it and sent it him, and as usual, forgot all about it. UNTIL NOW! The remix album, of which this is a part of, is out now on PITP, and I'm on there with some amazing artists - Hotel Neon, The Sight Below, Benoît Pioulard and loads of others. 

Here it is, in all it's shimmery glory:

worriedaboutsatan FC Home Kit - 2020/21

Last year, for a bit of fun, I made up a special worriedaboutsatan football shirt. It was just a silly idea that I ran with, but as a lot of you liked it, I decided to do it again for the 2020-21 season! And to top it off, I did one of those stupidly over-the-top kit reveal videos, complete with daft thumbnail covered in hashtags too:


Last season's one will be raffled off for charity very soon too, and I'm going to make that a feature of doing these stupid things every year, so that we can hopefully do some good whilst I indulge my ridiculous ideas :)
