Twenty years ago, in the mid-90s, before remixes were suddenly everywhere along came a series
of releases in 1996, which, not entirely new, shook things up and in many ways defined an era:
The Remix Wars.
The concept of The Remix Wars was simple enough: two artists remix one another and release
the results on a collaborative CD. The idea had been done before, but never on such a grandiose
scale, and never with such a breadth and depth. First, the artists: a pair of 1990s EBM/industrial
bands in wumpscut vs. haujobb; a pair of classic 1980s bands who had taken a decidedly metal
spin on industrial in Front Line Assembly vs. Die Krupps; and a pair of then-new bands with a
new spin on industrial and EBM in 16 Volt vs. Hate Dept. Second, the collaboration between
labels: 21st Circuitry, Off Beat, Cleopatra... and Metropolis would join the fray in 1999 for
Volume 4. And, finally, the desire to experiment and re-work tracks, not simply to make a club hit
but to authentically give voice to a different artist through the lens of technology.
It was a thoroughly collaborative effort, on every level.
On the 20th year anniversary of the launch of The Remix Wars, Artoffact Records will release
the first three volumes (Strikes) on special edition vinyl.
