The latest release from FERAL MEDIA is ‘The Strain Of Origin’ – a unique and exclusive collaboration between FERAL MEDIA and Brisbane’s LOFLY label.
The 16-track remix album is the musical equivalent of an interstate swinger’s party, gathering a bunch of artists from each label’s roster and having them remix a track by an artist from the other label. The line-up includes Feral Media artists VORAD FILS, II, CLEPTOCLECTICS, UNDERLAPPER, AFXJIM, COMATONE, BROKEN CHIP and ALPEN taking on lofly artists MR MAPS, JOEL EDMONDSON, TOY BALLOON, AHEADPHONEHOME, RESTREAM, RE:ENACTMENT and SUBSEA.
The initial two week deadline meant the remixes were raw and spontaneous. The result is an eclectic mix of musical styles that showcases burgeoning artists from the Australian underground music scene. Curated by Danny Jumpertz, Greg Stone and Andrew White, mastered by G L Seiler (COMATONE) and with artwork by Stuart Buchanan, ‘The Strain of Origin’ album is a celebration of the depth and originality of Australian music, and is being made available by the labels as a FREE download.
