Al Doyle, a jack-of-all-trades musician and member of UK outfit Hot Chip, was comissioned by longstanding Brooklyn math-rock duo Turing Machine to remix the "If It's Gone (It's On)" cut off of the band's recent What is the Meaning of What LP for Temporary Residence. In the tension packed production, Doyle expertly disassembles and manipulates the original song's guitar riffs, suturing them together with sheets of futuristic synths, crashing cymbals, a pounding beat, and indiscernible robotic vocals that oscillate rapidly like a well-oiled contraption. The track will be featured on Turing Machine's What is the Meaning of Remixes EP—which will also include remixes by Still Going, Lovelock, and Jee Day—when it drops on March 4.

After doling out a couple EPs in 2013, UK-based producer Gazelle Twin (a.k.a. Elizabeth Bernholz) will be returning to Anti-Ghost Moon Ray to release her sophomore LP UNFLESH later this year. Ahead of that album, however, the industrial-inspired artist has passed along her "Belly of the Beast" cut before it drops on March 3 as the record's lead single. Bernholz's eerie production lurches forward with a thunderous beat backed by clicking percussion and blasts of atonal FX; between static flurries, her sinister and salacious vocals pepper the song with an added sense of danger. For those looking to get deeper into Gazelle Twin's new single, the disorienting and somewhat disturbing video for "Belly of the Best" can be found after the jump. Read more »
