The golden age of infinite music

Just read this article on the BBC News website about how the future of music is changing

“We all know what the alleged future of music will look like. The record industry will be reduced to a smouldering ruin, the album replaced by endless individual songs and music rendered pretty much worthless by the fact that it’s universally free.”

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | The golden age of infinite music.

There are more and more musicians  – like myself – who are abandoning making a physical product and putting their music out for free. However, I hope that some people are still going to make a record or a CD and that I’ll still be able to go into my local record store and handle a physical product instead of downloading some artwork on to my pc.

Rhythm Sound and Movement finally out

A while ago I mentioned the remix I did for New Zealand band, Pitch Black. I’m proud to announce that the remix, entitled “Rude Mechanicals (mistrust’s ambiotik remix)”  is out now in New Zealand, and will be released worldwide over the next few weeks…. Here’s part of the official press release from Pitch Black’s label:

“we’re proud to announce the imminent release of Rhythm, Sound And Music, a collection of remixes of tracks from Rude Mechanicals. Some of our favourite from artists around the world have stepped up to the challenge of tweaking the originals: Bluetech, International Observer, Simon Flower, Patch, Kerretta, Friends Electric and many more (including England’s mistrust!). The full track listing is below.

You can check out the tunes in full at last.fm or most of them are also up on Pitch Black’s myspace.

(The mistrust remix is on my own myspace player here – myspace.com/mistrust)

You can either buy the 14-track CD from one of the online stores below, or if you are one of those thoroughly modern interweb peeps who prefers a download, you can get the surgically-enhanced 20-track ultra augmented bumper edition!!

To celebrate the new release, we are heading across to Australia in June for some shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and then swiftly over to the West Coast of the USA for a handful more. All these dates are below, we’d love to see ya! We will also be heading to the UK and Europe in October, so keep an eye out for us and we’ll keep you updated closer to the time.

Enjoy the tuneage, we look forward to seeing you on the dancefloor sometime soon!”
