Belief Defect is a collaboration of Drumcell and Luis Flores. ‘Decadent Yet Depraved’ (Raster-Noton) sets out their manifesto – the world is deluding itself. Combine that target with hard hitting experimental electronics and you get the soundtrack to a collision course through Laibach meeting John Carpenter.
After their highly-acclaimed debut album Decadent Yet Depraved (R-M 178CD/LP, 2018), Berlin and LA-based producers Belief Defect invited a variety of artists to join their Remixed project. Remixed 01 is about transferring the pieces back into abstract space, and each remixer does it in his very own way. Alessandro Cortini’s one-take live recording is a lesson in classical ambient music. Telefon Tel Aviv’s remix is timelessly modern and extremely delicate sound design. Rather opposite concepts are coming from Surachai’s brutal pattern design and Kangding Ray’s expressive and analogously saturated repetitions for the dancefloor.
