Swiss producer Wildlife! recently dropped his bass-heavy debut album highlighting the cross pollination of punk rock and reggae. Roxy Reboot—the title a reference to the legendary London club that was ground zero of the late 70‘s punk/reggae exchange— is released digitally and on limited edition gatefold vinyl. Wildlife! created electronic versions of reggae classics featuring the original veterans of London’s late 70’s punk scene, and punk covers by current Jamaican dancehall acts.
WESC hosted the mixtape release party at one of BK’s newest and finest rooftops above the the King and Grove Hotel. It was attended by the likes of Matt and Kim, Asher Roth and Ninjasonik to name a few.
Okay, so it’s been a while since I last posted anything on here, but the metal Gods have blessed us with a brand new mix, of the thrash variety, courtesy of regular A Fist in the Face of God mixmaker Bradley Smith and Deathhammer‘s Cato Stormoen.
In a similar vein to the crust mix Brad did for me with Sindre back in March, this was conducted solely over email, as Brad is still living it up in Hawaii while Cato leaves in a cave somewhere in Norway, battling the cold winds of death. Anyways, it is an impressive line-up, with some surprises for even the most weathered thrasher out there. Words from Brad and Cato after the break.
So many thrash bands out there never received the attention they truly deserved, so I took this opportunity to collaborate with one of my favorite up and coming thrash maniacs to spread the word on some unheralded, yet truly explosive and corrosive bands. So I’ll keep this short and sweet and let the music do the talking. Thrash Hard!!!!!!! Brad
I have never collaborated on a comp like this before so I just piled together some killer tracks which I thought would fit. Some old favorite tracks of mine and also some stuff I came across recently, like Anacrusis. The cool thing about this für mich is the amount of new bands I discovered through Bradley’s side of the comp. Hails and play it loud!
