Another episode of Remixta is here! Lot’s of cool new music from all parts of the world.
Show begins with a track by Renoise technical music guru It-Alien who may not be called Eye-Tea Alien, because his name does not come from Impulse Tracker nor Information Technology (nor Internet Things for that matter), but is a pun on word “Italian”.

Braintwister – Identity Matrix
The same day as this show was broadcast, Remixta netlabel released an album by Braintwister. The album contains four tracks of quite original Drum and Bass with lots of sub bass and mathematical rhythms.
I received the material quite long time ago and I was planning for a grandiose release, but I found myself short of time to do all the stuff required, so the release was postponed several months until I finally decided to just release it on bandcamp and let the music do the talking.
Great release nevertheless, and thanks to everyone who helped us to get it on the internet. If you enjoy it, show some love to Braintwister (kasmo) on renoise forums: http://www.renoise.com/board/index.php?showtopic=27228
Hitori Tori – Kinematics
“This collection of songs evokes the disorienting feeling of daily commutes on high speed trains in the Kansai region of Japan. The view out of the cabin window was an endless blur of bobbing telephone wires and slanted trees.”
In 1998 Julian La Brooy’s four track recorder was tragically destroyed. A sound tracker completely changed everything and Hitori Tori was born. Agitated breaks became combined with tweaked arpeggiated synth lines, and a few lugubrious tones were thrown into the background for good measure.
Early releases included tracks as part of the electronic duo Finch on the Sugarmonk Omniscience Complilation in 1999, followed by several electroacoustic tracks out on Luumu recordings. Fasp, another musical incarnation, released an album on the Nishi net-label in 2002. In 2010, Hitori Tori continues with his meticulously detailed productions releasing series of 8 digital singles on Balanced Records.
Having played shows in Japan and Canada, Hitori Tori currently performs and resides in Vancouver.

Hitori Tori is also one of the well known Renoise artists and is specially notable because of his amazing Renoise live skills using LividIndustry Ohm64. Read more about this and watch a video at Renoise In:Depth.
Makunouchi Bento – Swimé
Probably one of the best Renoise related albums from this year. One of the most interesting Ambient albums of all time. Filled with atmospheric textures and strange sounds from very wide spectrum of superb acoustics.
Strange melodies mixed with animal voices, sounds of nature and city into psychotic composition with amazingly clear sound image which won’t leave anyones emotions untouched.
Definitely an album worth getting, and you can get it for free on Bandcamp:
Binärpilot – Nordland
Binärpilot comes with a brand new album Nordland. Another 10 tracks of chiptune inspired dance music that just makes your feet move.
“Due to our symbiotic state, the memories of my host have begun seeping through. It comes to me in vivid fragments, saturated with the hopes and ideas of human adolescence. How beautiful it is to aspire, how delicate a process it is to construct an identity through pieces of idolatry and inspiration. Now, these are all memories I am happy to share. Reflections on abandonment, opposition, but most of all joy. Don’t forget to dance.”
The album is available in several different formats, some of them free, go check out the options at http://binaerpilot.no/
