Terminatryx Remyx v2

TERMINATRYX "Remyx v 2.0"

From the very start, TERMINATRYX intended to have all albums converted into remixed versions.
2011 had the full remixes of the self-titled debut album (plus bonus tracks) see light of day as "Remyx v1.0".
"Remyx v2.0" covers remixes of the 2014 "Shadow" album, with some talents from v1.0 returning to give the
Terminatryx songs a new approach, plus some fresh blood and exciting new remixers.
[Check out details on the "Remyx v1.0" album here]

Returning remixers deconstructing, reinventing, chopping and changing the Terminatryx "Shadow" album include:
BATTERY 9 (South Africa)
iRONic (South Africa)
MR SAKITUMI (South Africa)

Newcomers to the reconstruction of the TERMINATRYX audio universe include these South Africans:

[Check out details on the "Shadow" album here]

A full remixed album remains a rarely accomplished feat in South African music (especially Alternative acts),
but Terminatryx still doesn't conform and likes to break norms and stereotypes.
You can expect the Terminatryx songs to enter both a new and deliciously familiar world on this exciting experiment
in long distance collaboration!
Until its release on 30 September on all major digital platforms (and a hard copy plan in the works),
singles will be dropped exclusively at Bandcamp.

The first single "Medusa (iRONic Remix)" was launched together with its music video at Metal4Africa's Winterfest '17.

A few more singles will be revealed leading up to the "Remyx v2.0" album's official launch at the 18 TIL I DIE
all ages show, Saturday 30 September (also at ROAR).

Terminatryx Scars Grimehouse Remix

"Scars" - remix by GRIMEHOUSE (South Africa)

Cape Town Alternative Metal / Industrial Rock and Drumstep / Dubstep met with a bang when Terminatryx co-founder / producer Paul Blom connected with Keaton Carelse (Grimehouse) on the Build Your Scene podcast - https://soundcloud.com/buildyourscene/s2e4

Paul dropped the question whether Grimehouse would be keen to contribute a remix to the Terminatryx "Remyx v2.0" album, and Keaton jumped on it without hesitation, resulting in a kicker of a track. 

Here's the single: https://terminatryx.bandcamp.com/track/scars-grimehouse-remix

-Terminatryx Shadow Industriezone Remix

"Shadow" - remix by INDUSTRIEZONE (Austria)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
Having blown us away with his Industriezone remix of Terminatryx debut album track "Venus Rising", we simply had to get Chris Hall to take on another song, and he delivered in spades with title track "Shadow"!

Terminatryx Holy The Frixio Remix

"Holy" - remix by Lloyd Price (UK)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Lloyd the electronic genius is back! He remixed the Terminatryx song "CONsume" with Martin Degville for a Sigue Sigue Sputnik Electronic retake. Here he gave "Holy" a facelift via his new project The Frixion.

Lloyd Price (The Frixion / Massive Ego): I wanted to take Holy to the dancefloor. The dark dancefloor.
I totally deconstructed the track back to the elements I wanted to focus on. I loved the line "holy is the new fake" that Sonja sings, so wanted to really make the most of that.

A whole new backing was created with some nice dark synth lines and strings.
I've been listening to a lot of Numan lately so maybe that comes through…

Terminatryx Medusa iRONic Remix

"Medusa" - Remixed by iRONic (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
Having taken on "SleepWalkers" on the debut album's remixes, Terminatryx drummer Ronnie (aka iRONic) was excited to not only remix "Medusa", but also co-directing its video alongside vocalist Sonja.

-Terminatryx Nothing Isobel Acoustyx

"Nothing" - ISOBEL acoustyx recreation (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
For this track we thought it would be interesting to have vocalist Sonja's dark acoustic project Isobel give the song a reworking.
(This wil be their first recorded release)

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx / Isobel):
We wanted to keep this reworking of "Nothing" simple and effective, in line with the rest of our Isobel songs, with only voice and acoustic guitar.

Nerine Dorman (Isobel):
Writing accompaniment for the melodies that Sonja composes is always – how should I put it? – interesting. She doesn't follow conventions, so I love the fact that she causes me to think outside of the box in terms of what sort of guitar arrangement will work. With "Nothing" I was faced with a melody that modulates through (at least) three unrelated keys, which meant that standard notions of chord structure wouldn't work. So I went for a textured, almost dissonant sound to act as counterpoint and contrast to the elegant vocal track.
I felt that it was important to aim for something very different from the initial Terminatryx arrangement where the guitar track pretty much mirrors the vocal, and I'm well pleased with the results.



Terminatryx Masjien Battery 9  Remix

"Masjien" - Sementkop Mix by BATTERY 9
(South Africa)

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx):
We were so excited to have Industrial legend Paul Riekert of Battery 9 remix our first Afrikaans song "Siek+Sat" on the first remix album, and simply had to have him back. So, our second Afrikaans song "Masjien" was the obvious choice, but a random brain-flash had us ask Paul if he'd be keen to do a semi-mash-up of this track and his Battery 9 hit from the late-'90s "Kiss The Machine" - He agreed!

Terminatryx Gone Khemical Krypt Remix

"Gone" - remix by KHEMICAL KRYPT (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
For this track we injected some young blood in the shape of Cape Town audio anarchists Khemical Krypt.

Carlo Ashley Fredericks (Khemical Krypt): Being long term fans, Jack and I were super-psyched to open up an inbox from Terminatryx, wanting to know if we'd be interested in doing a remix of one of the tracks from their 2014 album, "Shadow". We were smiling for days!!

Out of the remaining songs available to choose from, "Gone" was one of them. Have you heard the track? Jeeeeeeesus... have you seen the music video??? Intimidation level 5000! How do I recreate, that which is already awesome?

It took me about 6 months to wrap my head around the way I ought to approach this project. By then, the level of anxiety had dropped, ha-ha! My key focus was the arrangement, re-telling the story in a progressive way, the Khemical Krypt way, and I think it turned out pretty sweet.

Terminatryx Outcast Mr Sakitumi Remix

"Outcast" - remix by -MR. SAKITUMI
(South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
Our friend, fellow Makabra Ensemble member, and man of many musical talents Sean Ou Tim (Mr. Sakitumi) had to be included again, giving the track a groovy Glitch treatment.

Sean Ou Tim Mr. Sakitumi):
Lush vocals, bouncing bass lines, bumping triplet beats, strong melodic strings, blips and bleeps, glitched vocals, distorted guitars, a sweet & pretty breakdown, an 8 bit kitchen sink at the end…These are a few of my favourite things.
Started in Cape Town, continued in Austria and finished in ze Berlin (while on tour).

Being 13,694.8 km from my studio (that's 182 hours by car or 2,432 hours on foot), I had to final mix this on headphones at my friend's Berlin apartment.
Who's my friend do you ask? He's none other than Leon Retief aka Princess Leonie (ex- BOO drummer)!

www.facebook.com/Terminatryx PuriFire In Misery Remix

"PuriFire" - remix by IN MISERY (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
We stumbled upon In Misery by accident on Facebook when discovering that Spectral Realm's drummer has this side project. Really liked what we heard and asked him to take on a song!

Calvyn (In Misery):
What I can mention regarding doing a remix for a band and the way I get around doing it -
I normally listen to the given track 2 or 3 times just to get a bit of a perspective on it, just to get a sense of the flow and overall intended.
After that I disregard everything that has been sent my way eccept for the vocal bits.
The reasoning behind that is that I am trying to build a new song from scratch with my own blend of sound design and choices of synths. I feel that keeping original bits sometimes distract me from making steady progress and that it poses as a slight limitation on the experimentation.

With PuriFire it so happend that a slight old school type of sound formed while trying it out.
In my mind... Wumpscut meets Eurythmics for this paticular occasion. Not intended I'll admit, but I do have a liking for this accidental concoction.

Some of the software I used for the Purifire Remix:
Sylenth1 (Lenner Digital), Gladiator (Tone 2), Lexicon Plate Reverbs, Nexus reFX, Echoboy (Soundtoys Delays), Omnisphere (Spectrasonics), CLA Stereo Compressor, Digital Grimebox (Sonalksis)

www.facebook.com/Terminatryx Metropolis F8 Remix

"Metropolis" - The Moloch remix by F8 (South Africa)

Paul Blom (F8 / Terminatryx):
In 2017 I came to realise that I embarked on F8, my bass-guitar-only experimental solo project 20 years ago! When one of our remix choices couldn't commit to taking on the song, I thought it would be fun to remix one of my own band's tracks as one of my solo projects!

In stead of an all-out reinvention, I retained a lot of the original track elements, removing the live drums and giving it a hard electronic kick, plus re-recording the guitar parts with bass (clean & distroted).
I imagine it to play in a German underground S&M club!

F8 Fate

Terminatryx When Doves Cry

"When Doves Cry" - Terminatryx cover version
- Bonus Track
(South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx):
With Sonja being a life-long Prince fan, the man recently leaving this plane and Terminatryx tending to keep covers in the '80s, this inclusion was an obvious one.
Like "Obsession" on Remyx v1.0, the song wasn't completely reinvented, just Terminatrified.
