Mild Peril | A Wizard's Voyage Through Unknown ZonesMild Peril has released an expanded version of his Unknown Zones release on Bandcamp, available in digital and CD formats. This expanded version contains the “Variations on ‘Another Drone In Your Head’ by Soft Riot”, which was originally released on the Another Drone In Your Head EP back in early 2012 on Tundra Dubs.

The original track, “Another Drone In Your Head”, was not only included on Fiction Prediction, but also on a digital EP of the same name including two other exclusive tracks (“You Can’t Please Everyone” and “Do Less”) as well as five remixes by Mild Peril, Babe Rainbow, Funerals, ΔAIMON and William Winslow-Hansen.

You can listen to that EP here, and purchase it digitally as well:

SOFT RIOT + TERROR BIRD / A6 FlyerSoft Riot will be performing a few live shows next month, the first being 05 June 2014 here in London at The Stag’s Head. Some new material will be tried out as well as warming up the equipment ahead of a live appearance at the Gothic Pogo Party festival in Leipzig DE a few days later (opening up for Robert Görl).

Terror Bird, aka Nikki Nevver, from Vancouver, Canada (my hometown) will also be on the bill and this show is part of an extensive European tour she’s on in June and July.

Ponygirl from London’s popular Endurance clubnight will be playing tunes before, in between and after the bands at this event.

Do come out! This’ll be one of the last shows in London north of the river for a little while as there’s a lot of change and things happening moving into the second half of 2014.

A second London show south of the river is soon to be announced for late June, performing live for the regular series of events from Garçonne.

More live dates to be announced and expect to see Soft Riot out and about on the roads of UK and Europe in fall 2014.

On the 7th of April Soft Riot spoke to the folks at Donkaster Elektronische Freundschaft in the form on a 20 minute long interview for their ongoing digital radio show and podcast. Towards the end of the interview the track “You’ve Been A Seeker For Long Enough” is played (the b-side to the “Your Own Private Underworld” single) and the track “Bronze Contempt” by Dance Naked, for whom JJD did the artwork for under the JJD Works moniker. Dance Naked were a London/Coventry “synth-goth” group who were mainly active between 1986-1988 and are re-releasing their cassette material in the form of an LP on the Berlin-based label Aufnahme + Wiedergabe. Here is the archive of that interview, which starts at around the 20 minute mark:

Soft Riot remixes Keluar

Filed under News

17 April 2014

This past fall Soft Riot was asked by friends in the Berlin duo Keluar to remix one of their tracks from their first EP, Ennoea, released on Desire. Choosing the track “Cleo”, it was reworked into something new but continuing some of the same atmospheres of the original. After being archived for several months awaiting a release date, this remix is available on the self-titled CD, Keluar, compiling the Ennoea and Vitreum EPs. You can also check out the remix on SoundCloud below:
