Remix Boxcar Week #1 Universal Hymn



Boxcar want to hear your take on our 90's club hit Universal Hymn.

To coincide with the remastered, extended versions of our albums, Vertigo and Algorhythm we're opening our tape vaults for four tracks (2 from each lp) to be remixed.

Week #1 Universal Hymn : Week #2 Dust : Week #3 Vertigo : Week #4 Insect12"

If we like your remix, you'll be featured in the re-releases and there will be some (modest, to be announced) prizes for your hard work and of course, our eternal thanks and praise. You can instantly download samples from here

If you would like to work from a more complete multi-track stem then download this archive : PC (962 MB) or MAC (979 MB)

You'll need a password to open it, just so we know who is accessing the file for remixing. Just email [email protected] and request a password. We'll send it straight to you.

Make sure you include your name, and Soundcloud handle (if applicable)

Mashed Potato in the Beatport Whorehouse


As a long time Devo fan (many fond memories pogo-ing to Duty Now For the Future), I could not resist entering the Beatport Devo remix competition.

I like the new album a lot and they were certainly smart to haul in some production talent (i think one of the Dust Bros was involved).



So I thought I'd have a go at one of the new tunes.

So Devo = yay...Beatport itself, on the other hand, is a large skanky trough of DJ whoredom. I went into this with little pretense of 'winning' (the prizes were rubbish) But it quickly became apparent that Beatport is primarily a marketing tool...and frankly not much else.

The 'winners' are those who can generate enough 'social networking' and 'plays' by registered users. And anyone who has abundant time for online social networking should always be viewed suspiciously. So even less surprise that the winner of the competition had broken the very rules they laid out , much less delivered what sounded like a broken washing machine with the vocal laid over the top. Yes sour grapes, but fuckit, I'm even being generous in this case.

I'm afraid it will take more than the patronige of Deadmau5 (who admittedly produces some fine stompy electronic music) to convince me Beatport is anything but total rubbish...no doubt there's plenty who trod the same path already feel the same.



So I got to tinker with some Devo, and there's probably very few other artists I would submit myself to such pointless humilation for (mentally compiling shortlist)

I'll notch the experience up to devolution, eh spuds?

Valley Forge - Machine-Built Remix

Well this is kinda old news, but not if you haven't already heard it right?

I agreed to remix Clan Analogue act, Valley Forge. I really like the material on their album. No idea why it's not out still. But IMHO it certainly deserves a decent release.

Boxcar were never particularly 'favored' with the 'bung it in distortion and a filter Richard James bootlicking set' that the Clan once used to represent. Although my pedigree is every bit as Cabaret Voltaire 'old fart' as theirs, clearly anything too 'pop' is a no no (surely even that's old now?)

Anyhow, I actually liked their music and it must have struck a chord with Pete from Single Gun Theory, as he's got a remix of another track on the EP. From what I heard, the boxcar remix got some play on FBI. Either way, I was happy with it...and that's all that matters these days. A bit about how it was made; The other versions (which can be heard on iTunes) have some live bass guitar, which i really enjoyed doing.. Sonic Charge's Microtonic is in use, as is Lennar Digital's Sylenth1 and some heapin' helpings of Ohmforce's terrific echo Ohmboyz.

The EP can be purchased on iTunes here, Follow Suit EP.
