From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for thirty years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.

(http://www.spike.com/events/video-game-awards-2012-nominees/voting/best-original-score)

Pushing the musical envelope, Davidge and his production company enlisted popular producers DJ Skee & THX, Caspa, Sander Van Doorn & Julian Jordan, Gui Boratto, KOAN Sound, Matt Lange, Andrew Bayer, Norin & Rad, Alvin Risk, Bobby Tank, Maor Levi and Hundred Waters, in addition to rock maestros Apocalyptica and ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, to create a 14-track remix disk based on the Original Soundtrack previously only available in the Special Limited Edition Numbered Box Set.

When approached to work with Davidge, these artists not only took his work on the ‘Halo 4’ score and shaped it into their own unique sound, but kept true to the roots and feel of the ‘Halo’ franchise.

“For me it was a real privilege to get to work on the Halo 4 Soundtrack and in particular with Neil Davidge’s work. He’s a legend in my book and this has been a phenomenal experience all round,” said top international DJ Sander Van Doorn. “Halo is such a great game and the music for 4 is nothing short of exceptional.”

The Halo 4 remixes have received huge worldwide support from DJ’s such as Steve Aoki, Laurent Garnier, Above & Beyond, Hernan Cattaneo, Krafty Kuts, Funkagenda, James Lavelle, Brett Johnson and D/R/U/G/S to mention a few.

Max Cooper Collaborates With BRAIDS To Release Conditions One EP

Click Here For Free Download Of Automaton APP On iTunes

Rising UK electronica star Max Cooper has collaborated with Canada’s intellectual art-rockers BRAIDS on a two-part EP named CONDITIONS ONE. The first of a set of upcoming releases from Cooper examining the human condition, CONDITIONS ONE will be the first release on new live-electronica label FIELDS and is accompanied by evocative and indelicate remixes by hotly tipped northern UK acts Ghosting Season and D/R/U/G/S, as well as an already-released free iPhone app Automaton that previewed one track of the EP.

The human condition is a well-examined idea – but as an ex-genetics researcher with a PhD, Cooper takes a somewhat aslant look at humanity with the two collaborations. “Pleasures,” he says, “is just that – an attempt to write something purely pleasurable and beautiful. But Automaton is darker – an attempt to show how humans are essentially deterministic, trapped in a set of predictable reactions to their environment, their upbringing, their lives”.

All members of BRAIDS sing, and the tracks on the CONDITIONS EP combine vocal lines, melodies and individual vocal sounds from every song on BRAIDS’ most recent album, Native Speaker – both as “proper vocals”, and or ethereal, pure sound.

Hugely successful with both critics and touring audiences, BRAIDS’ experimental, poppy debut Native Speaker was described as “mesmerizing and vertiginous as desire can be” by the New York Times, “equally tactile and dissolute, cerebral and surreal” by Pitchfork and shortlisted for Canada’s Polaris Prize. Art students from Calgary, Canada, the band were on tour before they had even written the drum tracks for their debut album, and they are currently writing its followup in Montreal, for release in 2013.

… is known in Europe for three things: huge festival sets that swing freely between delicate live electronica and abrasive techo glee; his stark, emotional reworks of acts such as multi-million selling soundtrack composer Michael Nyman (Gattaca, the Piano), Hot Chip, Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds, and the downtempo classic Hayling by FC Kahuna and Swedish songstress Hafdis Huld; and for his scientific background, which has strongly influenced his 50+ original tracks and remixes as well as the videos he commissions to accompany his work. He has been voted one of the top 100 DJs worldwide by canonical techno and electronica blog Resident Advisor, with his track The End of Reason compared to Philip Glass, Gorecki and Aphex Twin.

Until recently, Cooper worked as a genetics researcher for University College, London while making and touring his music on weekends and at night. He only retired his first, more sober science career in 2010.
