The machines require more than just our flesh, they demand our souls.
Factory Food is the first album from the Wirebug aka Dan Hekate for over a decade. Now a feature film director Dan has brought all his expertise in sound design to bear on this full-length album of industrial beats, soundscapes and noise. Intertwining broken rhythms with melancholic melodies, harsh analogue percussion with acoustic in- struments, this is a series of tracks that asks the listener to engage or retreat.
Including collaborations with Praxis founder Christoph Fringeli, instrumentalists Enrico Gontero on the accordion and Steph Voodoos on acoustic guitar this is a listening experience in of itself. It includes tracks that you would drop to packed breakore dancefloor as well as those that would feel more at home in a noise concert but all the same it is cohesive and true to it’s own nature – a cold, minimal, mechanical beast rumbling across the landscape of our digital age.
Within the album package is also included a 23 minute AV set mixed by the Wirebug and remixes of two of the tracks by Black Mass Plastics and Killabomb, as well as an alternative version by The Wirebug himself.
A digital remix EP featuring re-interpretations of the title track ‘Factory Food’ by Monrhea, Psychic Defence, Kill- abomb and an extended mix by The Wirebug himself is in preparation for release in Summer 2021.
As a piece the album can be taken as a fable, a story of what happens when we sacrifice all to the machines in the hope that they will grant us wealth, fame and everlasting youth.
Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.
