On October 16, Heathered Pearls will release Body Complexity, featuring remixes from his recent Body Complex. Today, Clash Music premiered Physical Therapy’s remix of “Interior Architecture Software,” calling it, “A muscular, tech-driven workout, the snapping snares bark amidst flowing synthesised textures and the faintest hints of melody.”

A rare opportunity to watch unconventional music making in action, the collaboration pushes the boundaries of accepted wisdom about sound, searching for new ways to make melodies.

If your remix is chosen, you’ll win Bitwig Studio, a Nektar Panorama P4 keyboard, and your mix will be exclusively released on Beatport. The deadline for entry is October 5, and everything you need is in the link below.

In the latest video from the Deluxe Edition of New Ways: Music from the Documentary I Dream of Wires, Solvent goes head-to-head with Wrangler—aka Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire. The result is an alluring combination of their two aesthetics, Solvent’s sleek, bobbing synths getting scuffed, sliced and diced by Mallinder. In a way, it’s a fine illustration of the film’s themes, two modular synth aficionados with slightly different approaches combining to illustrate the instrument’s timelessness and versatility.
