Hot on the heels of their wild and debaucherous tour with Pixel Grip, Patriarchy have unleashed a tag-team pair of remixes of the track “Suffer”. A worthy follow-up to the fantastic mixes of “Lockjaw” by Kris Baha, the new mixes of “Suffer” are courtesy of Electronic music Artist Zanias (vocalist of Linea Aspera) and masked EBM maestro Kontravoid.
The Zanias “Haex” mix is both resonate and atmospheric with languid gyrating rythhms that swirl like smoke orbiting a ritualistic pyre in the woods as the song drifts towards the starlight with its invocations.
In contrast, the Kontravoid mix is sinister and seductive darkwave, transmuting the original song into an 80s horror film soundtrack worthy of a fog-laden dancefloor.
On enlisting Zanias and Kontravoid to rework “Suffer”, Patriarchy explains:
“Patriarchy met Kontravoid back in the darkest days of quarantine… through the magic and evil of Spotify (evil in the Goethean sense – evil that produces good). Actually of Patriarchy says that she would work out and make human love to the music of Kontravoid and so she messaged him. Same thing happened with Zanias a few months later. Zanias and Kontravoid both picked the same song to remix and both happen to be Fleisch Records, so we decided to tag-team onto Suffer with this extraordinary fleisch combo. YUM. Zanias’ remix is a haex mix for witches… dance it out in the woods and then enter a nearby bunker for the throbbing dance mix of Kontravoid. A perfect combination of suffering.”
