Download a New Mix from Rene Hell
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Prolific experimentalist Jeff Witscher (a.k.a. Rene Hell) has kept a relatively low profile since September's Vanilla Call Option LP—released via PAN, one of our favorite labels of 2013—but today Witscher has unleashed a brand-new mix online. Witscher says of his podcast for Resident Advisor, "I was just selecting pieces that were obviously very opposite as wholes, but consisted of smaller sounds that out of context could easily intertwine with completely different compositions." Featuring noise and ambient work from the likes of Lee Gamble, Arthur Russell, Florian Hecker, Wolfgang Voigt, and William Basinski, the recording finds stark contrast between organic tones and their digital facsimiles. The full Rene Hell mix can be downloaded here, where a quick Q&A with the artist can also be found.
