excitingly, i was invited to be part of feral media’s new strain of origin II compilation. it’s a really high quality mix of australian artists all remixing each other – i remixed underlapper, aheadphonehome remixed me, AFXJIM remixed aheadphonehome, anonymeye remixed AFXJIM and on and on and out popped a really tops collection of tracks. from the blurb:
The compilation traverses genres with the resulting tracks as varied as the artists themselves. From the pulsing ambience of Broken Chip’s take on Toy Balloon, to Comatone’s assaulting drill n bass reworking of Simo Soo, to Zeal’s all-out indietronic take on Underlapper’s track Himpory.
Elsewhere Restream turns 8-bit maestro Dot.AY’s track into a stomping glitch freak out, while Jonathan Boulet takes us on a ride through desert plains with his spaghetti western reimagining of Brisbane artist Subsea.
The Strain of Origin compilations are a great example of what can be achieved through remote collaboration and are a true testament to the high calibre of music being produced on Australia’s fair shores. This second compilation establishes a precedent for an annual release with new Australian artists and labels to be added along the way.
the compilation is free. go get it: http://feralmedia.bandcamp.com/album/strain-of-origin-ii
