Belief defect invites Alessandro Cortini to remix the track Disembarking Horizons off of their album Decedent Yet Depraved. Cortini, best known as a member of the band Nine Inch Nails has cemented his reputation as a vanguard of contemporary ambient music thru his two successful albums on Vatican Shadow's Hospital Production imprint, Sonno and Risveglio as well as the recent album “Avanti” voted as a top 10 album of 2017 on Recent evidence of his talent can be heard in his reinterpretation of Disembarking Horizons, as he strips it down to its bare elements, exposing its melancholy as The essential drive. Belief Defect's Remix.01 EP is now for sale on our Bandcamp page both digital and vinyl. The 12-inch vinyl comes in a full-color jacket and includes a set of stickers and one enamel pin while supplies last. The EP also contains remixes from Kangding Ray, Telefon Tel Aviv, Alessandro Cortini & Surachai

Complete and total immersion is what we have always strived for when doing an event. Trying to find that delicate balance between Sensory deprivation and outright visual stimulation. Setting up an environment that enhances how we experience music and completely escapes the overwhelming weight of reality while still observing what truly matters most. Often people give us an overwhelming amount of gratitude for the events we do or the music we play but, to be honest, the credit is really owed to the people who have listened, attended and danced. Without you honestly, everything we strive to do would fall on deaf ears and for that, I have NOTHING but gratitude to our supporters. Absolutely incredible set (one of the best I've seen) from Hyperactive dropping hammers. The love I have for this man can not be put into words, Happy birthday, my man! Last but not least, that closing set from Mike Gervais was FIRE. having to follow up after what Hyper just did was no easy task and without a doubt, he delivered X 10… Coming up next... // OBSERVE.06 // LOS ANGELES // 11.30.19 // MARK THE CALANDER //

BELIEF DEFECT // LIVE AT ATONAL // FULL ONE HOUR PERFORMANCE NOW VIEWABLE ON YOUTUBE: OnAugust 18th, 2017 we had the opportunity to premiere our album along with the first public performance as Belief Defect from within the entrails of the iconic Kraftwerk building which, among other things, serves as the church of Atonal yearly. Given the coincidences of multiple extraordinary circumstances that aligned under the exceptional commitment Atonal has with their audience, we planned a show specifically for the occasion, the stage, the technical freedom, and resources offered by the festival to annex OKTAform and his skill set to the endeavor. The visual counterpart to the album developed with the same instinctual impulse the music did: recurring to found footage evidencing the general despair emanating from all media juxtaposed with over stylized precision graphics as a counterbalance, we aimed to build the experiential incarnation of the album and its narrative threads. This is such an attempt... - BELIEF DEFECT Visuals by: OKTAFORM Directed by: Hiroo Tanaka Camera Operators: Masaya Kato, Cornelius Diemer, Camilla Chavez Christopher Mueller, Sky Ainbury Edited by : Francisco Garcia Nava

We made a BELIEF DEFECT mix with all of our favorite pop songs. Only feel-good tracks that inspire you to mow your neighbor's lawn, clean your friend's toilets, help an old lady cross the street, and do you're best friends dishes... put on some headphones and get ready to whistle some toons while going to work.

I'm finding this platform for social media promoting more and more useless on a daily basis but lets beat the dead horse one more time? Our Belief Defect »Remixed 01« record with contributions by Alessandro Cortini, Kangding Ray, Surachai and Telefon Tel Aviv is officially released today. Get it now on the raster online store: available at all online stores and streaming services. "Belief Defect is the latest Collab project by Luis Flores and Moe Espinoza, who is already familiar to us as Drumcell. Both come from the same background of contemporary techno, have been around for over a decade, and now combine their accumulated experience to work together to create industrial, powerful and deconstructed electronic music that happens far from the dancefloor. Her debut Decadent Yet Depraved appeared last year on Raster. Now phone Tel Aviv, Alessandro Cortini, Surachai, and Kangding Ray gathered together with their own remix interpretation of one track of the record once more to breathe life into the now somewhat distant release. In the case of Alessandro Cortini and Telefon Tel Aviv, two very interesting ambient approaches emerged, which - one bright, the other dark - could not have been more different. Surachai is dedicated to brutal and powerful-dragging patterns. Kangding Ray, on the other hand, takes on the original starter of the album - "Unnatural Instinct". The pompous-drone piece is suddenly given a whole new form of life. What has once been announced as a possible danger on the horizon, grows here by massive breakbeat and startling heights to an immediately threatening moment. And before you know it, We present the Kangding Ray remix of Belief Defect's "Unnatural Instinct" as an exclusive premiere!"

More then a handful of people came up to me after my HYPOX1A performance last week at @BL_K NOISE asking me what the last track of my set was and where they could buy it. It was a remix that I did for These Hidden Hands (project of Tommy Four Seven & Shards) It was released on vinyl including a STELLER line up of remixes by @Telefon Tel Aviv,Death In Vegas, Lustmord & JK Flesh. The Telefon Tel Aviv remix at the top of one of my fav tracks of last year! I currently have 20 copies of the release on vinyl and figured I would put them on my Bandcamp for anyone who is interested in owning a copy. Below is a video from last Friday of the track. Visuals manipulated by OKTAform.

I have nothing but gratitude to express to everyone who came out to our BL_K NOISE 10-year anniversary show. This is something we look forward to every single year. An opportunity for myself to do an event that steps out of the dancefloor and further into the realm of abstract music. We have been further discussing doing these events a bit more often than once a year and certainly always strive to do them outside of Los Angeles. Big thanks to OKTAform for maintaining such a high standard when it comes to visual media, also my direct crew and family Richard Devine, Surachai and our new guests Anthony Baldino, Ital Tek + Peder Mannerfelt. If you came last Friday then you already know that shit was fun. If you didn't make it, to be honest, you missed out. If any of you who attended took any videos or pictures please send them over or share them. we always gather content for our archives. BL__K NOISE // 10 Year Anniversary Also thanks to Dean Paul De Leon + Ben Clark for the photos!

Big thanks to everyone who came out and supported last weekend at Berghain. I always walk into that DJ booth prepared to play like it will be the last time I will ever play there and of course I am always grateful when I'm invited to return. This weekend i return to Los Angeles to host our annual BL__K NOISE // 10 Year Anniversary show. For the last 10 years, we have been putting this show on in January around the NAMM convention to highlight incredible live set performances utilizing visuals. This year we are happy to debut two first-timers to Los Angeles, Peder Mannerfelt & Ital Tek of Planet Mu (OFFICIAL). Also, I will be performing an all-new ambient set under my Hypoxia alias. Our residents, both Surachai and legendary producer Richard Devine will also be playing new material from their new albums. Also for the first, we invite a Los Angeles based sound designer and incredibly talented producer Anthony Baldino to grace us with some brand new material. we highly suggest getting presales as this show has sold out every year since its beginning.
