“...as extreme and experimental as anything the San Diego natives have ever been in. Case in point: the couple singles we shared below, right alongside a shock-treated remix of another recent Three One G standout, the bleak post-punk band Silent.”
Listen to Silent's track, "Self", as remixed by Planet B, via Self-titled Magazine, here.
Mexicali-based band Silent’s post-punk goth aura meets Planet B’s electronic twilight zone in this remix of “Self.” A track originally found on Silent’s debut LP, “A Century of Abuse” (released by Three One G), this collaboration has left the original instrumentation stripped, instead melding vocalist Jung Sing’s (All Leather, Maniqui Lazer) dark vibrato tones with Luke Henshaw’s (Sonida de la Frontera) robotic assaults and Justin Pearson’s (The Locust, Dead Cross, Retox) unhinged backup screams. As Sing encourages us “to rise,” the sample behind it falls, a glitchy MPC crumble punctuated by an ominous beat throughout. This remix keeps the emotive, stylistic mood of the original, while introducing a distinctly “Planet B” multilayered, hip hop approach. The result is sci-fi inspired heaviness.
This Silent remix feat. Planet B will be available as an exclusive free download via Three One G’s Soundcloud profile.
Silent’s LP, A Century of Abuse (featuring the original version of “Self”), is available via Three One G’s webstore. Order here.
