Art Of Noise, Plastikman, The Fall, Kraftwerk and Angelo Badalamenti all in the same brainfood mixtape

The last couple of mixtapes we’ve posted have been aimed at the dancefloor, and while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that today we’re feeling a bit more cerebral — maybe it’s the winter weather. Although that can’t be, because from our secret lair at The Meadows hidden under a knoll deep in the Venice Beach Forests the sun is shining, and it’s about 80 degrees today. Sorry rest of the world! Anywho, I digress. This Quietus Mix 008 by Chris & Cosey is just what the doctor ordered for brain food. Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey fame drop an hour and 27 minutes of sonic goodness, blending their own music and remixes with tracks from Art Of Noise, Throbbing Gristle, Factory Floor, Plastikman, The Fall, Kraftwerk, Coil & Rose McDowall, Angelo Badalamenti and more. From Quietus: “If we were running a chart of all the artists featured on the Quietus mix series, out ahead of the pack in terms of frequency of inclusion would be Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti – something is stirring in the electronic nimbus. The past few months have seen not only Optimo’s vinyl reissue of Carter’s brilliant The Space Between, but also four Chris & Cosey LPs originally released in the early 80s: Heartbeat, Trance, Songs Of Love & Lust and Exotika. February 4th will see their first performance in years at the ICA, supported by Factory Floor. There, they promise “classic C&C tracks from their substantial back catalogue, reworked and accompanied by mash-ups of new and old C&C video projections.” Give it a peep today, especially if you’re mind’s needing some nutrients…
