The Artificial Limb signs with Feral Media: single THE CIRCLE out now

AL Portrait blue cropOur latest signing is The Artificial Limb and ahead of the EP ‘Inner Circle’ we’ve just released the single ‘The Circle’. The Artificial Limb is Marc Eiden, electronic music producer and filmmaker from Melbourne, Australia. Listen on Spotify.

One of the founding members of the enduring Elefant Traks record label, Artificial Limb was born out of Sydney’s underground electro and hip hop movement in the late 1990s.

Inspired by the raw energy and fearlessness of The Beastie Boys 1989-1996 catalog (Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head…), Artificial Limb’s early DIY electro hiphop was showcased as part of the SBS TV network’s Whatever Sessions in 2001.

“As producer of The Whatever Sessions, I worked with Marc to showcase his sample-based electro-hiphop. Back then, Marc’s aesthetic was lo-fi and eccentric, often quite cheeky. The grooves were proudly hand-made. This latest iteration retains those clever and engaging DIY qualities but adds full frequency dance floor energy reminiscent of Leftfield or Cornelius. I’m thrilled Marc asked me to mix this record and honoured to be releasing it,” Feral Media’s Danny Jumpertz said. Jumpertz mixed the four track EP ‘Inner Circle’ in his Brooklyn, NYC studio in late 2016.

The Artificial Limb performs live with drummer The Right Reverend AL, against a backdrop of modernistic, op-art visuals by acclaimed Melbourne designer and artist Sean Hogan (Trampoline).

The Inner Circle will be launched on Saturday, April 8 in Melbourne at the new Footscray venue & bar, The Night Heron.
