The Divine Comedy - Perfect Lovesong (Perfect Lovebirds Remix)

A Superb remix found on the DVD single of Perfect Lovesong.
Not at all what you'd expect from The Divine Comedy, this is a wonderful remix.
A nice tune for Valentine's.

Remixed By Skinny Puppy

Queen - Another One Bites The Dust (The Cevin Key Alternative Mix)

Remixed by Cevin Key, one of the main creative forces behind Skinny Puppy. A very interesting take on the Queen classic with a wonderful 'Puppy' feel to it.

David Bowie - The Hearts Filthy Lesson (Alt. Mix By Cevin Key And Trent Reznor)

Remixed by Cevin Key and Nine Inch Nails 'Trent Reznor'.

Hilt - Stoneman (Extended)

Rare remix from great Skinny Puppy side project.

Soft Cell - Tainted.....By Love

Say Hello Wave Goodbye (Almighty Full Mix)

Fantastic remix by Almighty from circa 2002.
This track still sounds great and is often forgotten in favour of Tainted Love, but is surely it's equal.

Tainted Love (Cell Out) - Megamix by Paul Dakeyne for DMC 1986

A glorious mish mash of samples and stuff.......remember it was 1986 when this was crafted and Paul Dakeyne was a master of these 'all kinda crazy' remixes megamixes. This version is the official remastered version produced by DMC in 2007.

Tainted Love (Dakeyne 2006 Remix)

Paul Dakeyne's second go at remixing this classic track for DMC is hardly a patch on his previous attempt, but is still a great version.

More Dakeyne remixes coming shortly.

Lassigue Bendthaus - Matter

Fantastic European Electronic music from the early 1990's, I purchased this having heard 'Automotive' in London's Sister Ray record shop just before launching into the world of Zoth Omog. (Much more on that soon !) I've thrown in the Razormaid remix of Static in as well, just for good measure.

Hope you enjoy !

An interesting foursome.......

DJ Krush & Toshinori Kondo - Toh-Sui (From the album 'Krukok')

Brilliant Japanese Hip Hop from DJ Krush, who never seems to put a foot wrong. A contemporary of fellow Mo Wax artist DJ Shadow, Krush's work tends to have a wonderful jazzy vibe, here accentuated by the accompaniment of Toshinori Kondo.

Battles - Atlas (From the album 'Mirrored')

I discovered Battles after seeing them on 'Later With Jools Holland' (a cool music show hosted by the ex-Squeeze man). They performed Atlas live and it just blew me away. The studio recording is not as good as the live performance, but this track is still a fantastic achievement.

LFO - Freak (From the album 'Sheath')

I already loved LFO for their brilliant self titled single way back in the day, but this track is a whole different beast. There's an amazing video to accompany it that's well worth searching out.

Vision - Lucifer's Friend

Great synth pop track from 1982 that's rarely mentioned these days. I first heard it as a kid, but still think it sounds very fresh today. It's a shame that Vision didn't do anything else half as decent......but at least this is brilliant !
Whilst this is the original track, it appears here in a 'remastered' form, having been touched up for maximum sound quality by Tinderbox.

Industrial Sounds

Recommended that you play these VERY loud.

Frontline Assembly - Mindphaser (Extended)

Taken from the album Tactical Neural Implant.

Skinny Puppy - Pro-Test

Taken from the album The Greater Wrong Of Right.
There would be no Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson were it not for the wonderful influence of Skinny Puppy. A future post will illustrate more about this amazing Canadian group.

Front 242 - Body To Body (1988 Mix)

The '88 remix is much more powerful than the original that featured on Geography. (This was released on an album entitled 'Electronic Body Music' that featured, amongst others, The Weathermen, Chris & Cosey & Skinny Puppy)

KMFDM - Headcase

Taken from the album Tohuvabohu.
