Strawberry Muck, The Remixes, E.P. – Baseck, Red Shift, and Strangeloop
This free E.P. is a collection of all the various forms that Baseck’s track, Muck, has gone through since it’s initial creation.  It includes the original track from the album Creatures out on Subconscious Communications, a remix by Red Shift, a remix by Strangeloop and an alternate version of the Strangeloop edit featuring scratching/turntablism by Baseck, bringing it all full circle.
Baseck’s original song is a grimey lofi punk banger made with only the bootleg gameboy sequencer LSDJ and a small noise toy. Red Shift takes the central melody and embellishes it with ethereal synths and a sharp clicky hip hop beat transforming it into a whimsical yet robust dancey jam he renames Strawberry.  Brainfeeder artist, Strangeloop, propels this seemingly endless melodic riff even further adding glitchy other worldly samples and spacious thrashy beats that undulate creating an entrancing cosmic noise.
For your Listening Pleasure…

In addition to all the change ups this track has seen… it has now taken on a new life as the dreamy music set to an amazing kaleidoscopic video by Fragonard Berscht.  Appropriately it is the Strangeloop edit that has transcended into this new form.
For your viewing pleasure…

Datacide #11: TALKS & DISCUSSION
Cagliostro, Lenbachstr. 10, (Ostkreuz), from 17h
in English and Free

“333 bpm” a sonic-fiction by Riccardo Balli
iconographic references by: Caina
Every style in electronic music inspires a certain social behaviour, and what’s more, it actually structures the listener’s brainframe. Do you want to know how? And, above all, do you want to smash this #social# brainframe down by hyper-mixing genres? Some tips on how to do this can maybe come from this fiction, a sonic one, of course!

“Dance before the police come” a talk by Neil Transpontine
What’s going on when police raid parties? Neil Transpontine explores the different ways laws on sex, drugs, noise, property and subversion are used to constrain dancing in the UK and across the world.

just found a download link to some old mixtape by Novokain (Troops Of Doom)

info from the old Troops of Doom website:

Simply put, if Satan was a DJ, this would be his mixtape. This tape is by far the best mixtape ever to have graced my ears. True speedkore and deathkore here. The mixing here is dead on, with tons of scratching, and great track selection. Last 15 minutes of side 2 are Bezerker tracks. Get this tape and see what the shoddy L.A. promoters are missing out on. New J-card design cause we feel like it. Do not be fooled by imposters!!!

Thanks to the original uploader & the original Necromancer recodings label! great stuff from the late ’90’s, if anyone can help me find the other tapes would be amazing! 


old interview as found on Troops of Doom:

Novokain – the best DJ that LA’s never heard of. Representing the GSM and Troops of Doom, Novokain is as hard as they get. Both on the decks and in producing his own tracks, Novokain’s style is a hard pounding bassline littered throughout with distorted guitars, death metal vocals, and just the right amount of evil samples. Oh, and fast as fuck, too!!! Anyone who has listened to any of Novokain’s tapes be it Gorefest Stench, Hardcore Militia, Shit-Fuck, or Lion’s Den 3 can’t argue that Novokain fucks it up on the decks.

“I first started spinning three and a half years ago at my friend DJ Ellament’s house, since he was the first person I knew who had tables.” said Novokain when asked when he first started spinning. Even when first starting out, Novokain would try and get his hands on anything that sounded extreme. Novokain elaborates more on the subject… “I started off spinning Rotterdam stuff, since that’s all the record shops would stock, but I would always try to find harder stuff. More noize, more terror… more ‘Umph’!!!”

Every DJ or producer has their share of influences, and Novokain is no exception. On the DJ influence, R.A.W., DJ Efex, Baseck, Mark N, and DJ Ellament all get high marks from Novokain. For producers, “Well, there’s a shitload. For startes, all the Fisters, especially Netas, Memetic, and Syndicate.”. He goes on to name other producers like Jack Lucifer, Eiterherd, Somatic Responses, “The man” Lasse Steen, Acid Enema, Christoph De Babalon, Newskin, and others that he can’t remember right off the top of his head.

When asked about how Novokain felt on the sudden Dutch and Rotterdam trend, Novokain stated “I don’t remember it getting the fuck out! Rotterdam WAS good ya know.”

What does Novokain see for the future of the Gabber/Speedkore Militia, the Troops of Doom, and the Southern California gabber producers that keep popping up more and more by the day? “I see a little scene within us… this is OUR scene. We the makers ‘make’ the scene, and it’ll keep getting bigger and better. More labels will pop up hopefully.”

(c) 1999 Troops Of Doom … eternal respect to you guys!
