environmental sound collapse – Chains Of Gold

environmental sound collapse‘s latest release is four tracks of piggy tracker, midiNES and a circuit-bent Yamaha RX-17 smushed together, to create a stodgy meal of crunchy basslines, jittery drum beats and sprinkled with noisy leads, in order to feed your earholes. Recommended side-dishes include bacon, vodka, vodka-infused bacon and bacon-infused vodka. Eat up!

gwEm/Decade of Fragments/CDKr


Astonishingly dirty basslines? Check. Thumping Beats? Check. Samples from all sorts of various nooks and crannies in pop culture? Check. Christmas Song? Check.

Wait, what?

Most ordinary mixes don’t have Christmas songs, but then, most mixes aren’t by Atari and axe wielding madman Gareth Morris, who celebrates his 10th year of being ‘The One They Call gwEm‘. During a short period of not being busy from touring all over the world, from London to Toyko and almost everywhere in between, or putting on his own shows, or making his own Atari music composing software maxYMiser, gwEm has managed to make this astonishing 35 minute mix of old and new music into an unforgettable dance mix, that will surely cement his position in the chipscene for at least another ten years!
