This list of artists involved on this remix release of ‘I’ are very diverse and so are the results, this is what Iggor says about the unique selection of ‘remixers’:
“Nihiloxica is one of my favourite groups nowadays, i met them when i was doing music workshops in Kampala/Uganda, and asked Spooky J for a twist in one of our tracks, the result is a full blast gabber madness.”
“Fango is a sick producer from Italy, releasing percussive techno on labels like Kompaktand Degustibus, we played together on some of my Mixhell gigs and he delivers an amazing ‘drummapela’ that can be played in Berlin for the zombies.”
“Psywarfare is one of many faces of Dwid Hellion (from the band Integrity) his remix speaks in volumes for those who are not afraid of some noise ear damage.”
“Antoni Maovvi is one half of the label ‘Giallo Disco’ and some of his music has been played by the likes of Aphex Twin, his version feels like an Industrial Dancehall meets Fabio Frizzi type thing.”
“Naresh Ran is the brain of the super cool label ‘Dio Drone’ from Florence / Italy, his take on our track is quite intense, merging some extra layers of pure aural armageddon.”
“Shit and Shine is the new face of texas chainsaw massacre...i got so excited when they remixed one of our tracks, the result is like a bowl of human chilli.”
“Stazma the Jungle Christ, been playing parties with this dude over the last 10 years, he brings the party where ever and when ever he plays – 8 bit metal breakcore madness!.”
“Johnny Broke is one of Wayne’s projects, for this remix he went full on old school acid IDM vibes. He said “It’s always fun to take the most pop tune on a album bit more crazy!”
“And finally Mudo is one of my horrible side projects... on this remix I went for redneck tripping balls in a Tijuana dance club."
Petbrick - the duo comprising Wayne Adams (Big Lad/Death Pedals/Johnny Broke)and Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Soulwax/Mixhell) released their debut album ‘I’ at the end of 2019 to a raptuous applause.
The duo’s electronic experimentation, hardcore attitude, dystopian dread and in-the-red dementia collided and colluded to form a uniquely invigorating assault, custom fit for this age we find ourselves in.
On ‘I’ Petbrick employed both members’ past experiences - Wayne in a variety of musical guises ranging from punk to breakcore and gabba, and Iggor in a planet-straddling metal colossus whose questing spirit played a crucial role in the music’s evolution - yet also cheerfully renders them obsolete in a resolutely genre-free onslaught, damaged by the endtime intensity of Ministry and the synapse-shredding mischief of Aphex Twin yet lodged firmly in the here and now.
Absolutely insane thrashy industrial. The drums sound like they were sampled from nail guns, the guitars are just a wall of digital noise, the vocals are shouted slogans bathed in reverb. A perfect album for these turbulent times. Levrikon
