So this week I entered two tracks into the competition for the Bleep:Filtered Unsigned Compilation which im kinda excited about. Not cos I expect to even get down to the short list with such a multitude of talent available, but mainly cos it means somebody even vaguely associated with Warp Records might just get round to hearing one of tracks! (Bleep is sister company to Warp)
The competition aside, even if nothing comes of it, rest assured there are now 4 brand new Mender tracks in the pipeline for a follow up EP to Resonant Tense. Talking of EP’s, I have now accumilated a total of 4 tracks for my imminant remix EP ’Remotion’ which will hopefully be available by September through the bandcamp. Ideally there will be another track added but that depends on who gets some stems back to me to actually remix!!!
In other news, I have finally updated the Facebook group and the Soundcloud so they are both more reflective of current events. Also lined up a new review for Resonant Tense (I will get these in drips and drabs over the next month or so I reckon)
Finally, Im putting the finishing touches to an album I plan to release also in September under a different name. It is a dirtier sound to Mender and potentially more mainstream, taking strong influence from a lot of dubstep, breakbeat and drum and bass iv been listening to. This project will be called ’Rysic Cygo’ and the album is called ’Filth Beneath The Bliss’
So all in all, its a busy time….not to mention the fact Im going on tour with Alright the Captain around Ireland for 8 days 2moro morning!
