A few weeks ago it was two years ago we put out ‘The Machine Serves‘ by Pierce Warnecke. Warnecke, Berlin-based recording artist, also worked with us on ‘Reprogram‘ and reworked a track by Julian Edwardes. You will soon be able to hear this track, but for now, let’s go back to 2011 and let the machine serve you…
Pierce Warnecke, previously releasing The Machine Serves and The Machine Regrets on Fremdtunes, is set to release his latest album ‘Non Lieu’ with Rodolphe Loubatière on Gaffer Records. The album is the result of an exploration of extremes in dynamics, timber and time between percussion and electronics. .Warnecke is, besides being an innovative musician/producer, a video-artist and here’s his latest piece of art.
Today we celebrate the release of Pierce Warnecke’s ‘The Machine Regrets’: an adventerous melting pot of Electronic Funk, Glitch-hop, a touch of Dubstep and Jazz. With remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Big Mister Doom and Kelpe.
Get the digital version at Amazon, Boomkat, Digital Tunes, DJ Tunes, Juno, Red Eye Records or any other online store. Vinyl lovers can order the 12″ at Rush Hour or go directly to your favorite vinyl store and ask for this extremely limited record.
Plans are made. Scheduled releases are re-scheduled and re-re-scheduled and now 2011 is coming to an end and, logically, 2012 is coming closer, we think it’s time to update you on our upcoming releasedates.
First of all: 12/24/2011 OptiMace – The future is not what it used to be – part 1 (7″). The first one in the OptiMace remix-series ‘The future is not what it used to be’ with remixes by Big Mister Doom, KRSUR and Illy Symphony. Pre-order now at Rush Hour! Or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know how to get one (we only pressed 150 copies, so be quick). On 12/05/2011 we shall release Fremdkunst‘s ’Like Zauberhulk’ (free digital), the last in the EP-series ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’. It’s a little bit more ‘Frankenstein‘ than it is ’Cinderella’ and a whole lot more ‘PE’ than it is ‘Hans Dulfer’, but you’ll still hear a little bit of Cyndi-Lauper-sings-words-by-François-de-La-Rochefoucauld- soul oozing through the crackling, grating and stamping.
The new year starts with a blast, when we release on 01/19/2012 Pierce Warnecke’s ‘The Machine Regrets’. A spectacular glitched up, melodic, beatheavy mini-album by Berlin-based Warnecke with remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Big Mister Doom & Kelpe (12″/digital) and artwork by Mister Adam & Superelectric. Also in January we start our SEE-A-SOUND expo at bkkc, Tilburg, and we will release the associated album on 01/27/2012. Big Mister Doom will soon follow on 02/06/2012 with their debut EP on Fremdtunes (digital). This one includes two outstanding tracks by Leeds-based producers Ian & Joe and remixes by Pierce Warnecke & OptiMace ft iET (digital). Further more: Japanese youngster Emufucka exposes his ‘Planar Rift’ EP to the world on 03/22/2012. Expect experimental, up- and downtempo beats and remixes by DZA & St. Andrew on this digital release.
Than there’s some classic material by Kid Sundance in the making, Coco Bryce is working on groundbreaking beats and ofcourse Soosh (with remixes by Jameszoo and Kelpe) will release his SoFar EP in the near future. And there’s much, much more coming up… But that’s another story…
Mokosound just did a great job on the masters for the forthcoming mini-album ‘The Machine Regrets’ by Pierce Warnecke and Pierce uploaded the glitched up, mind-blowing title track to his previous single to his soundcloud page. The 8-track release (vinyl/digital) includes killer-remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez (FR), Big Mister Doom (UK) and Kelpe (UK).
Half man, half machine? Or in the end, human, all too human? We virtually sat down with the man Pierce Warnecke who just released his digital single ‘The Machine Serves‘ on Fremdtunes and tried to get some insight on the man’s whereabouts, habitats, habits, methods and future-plans. So, here it is: the rough guide to Pierce Warnecke:
