Our session is a showcase compiled and mixed by me, Mike Darkfloor, with the blessing of today’s guest Warcrimes.
I came across the New York based industrial duo last year, through one of my favourite bands – Khost. Warcrimes had been doing versions of tracks by the British doom band, two of which you’ll hear in this mix. One of their versions, Yellow Light featuring Cabaret Voltaire founding member Stephen Mallinder, I released as part of Darkfloor Sound’s Winter Solstice 2020 compilation in December (all monies raised from sales of this comp are donated to the National Autistic Society). There’s an alternate version to that track in today’s mix.
Warcrimes are combat veterans who joined forces last year. They fuse a variety of styles and influences into their industrial music. Recently, they released their debut album – Kel Tek 223, several tracks from which are featured in today’s showcase mix.
