For the better part of the last decade, Mark Nieto (a.k.a. COMBAT!) has been a regular fixture in LA's underground via appearances on local radio and performances across the city. Melding experimental electronics with floating guitar work, Nieto's various inclinations culminate in his work as COMBAT!, with his brilliant self-titled debut album on Friends of Friends the crowning piece.
As a follow up to the album release, Nieto has passed on a remix of album cut "Av(r)on" by Brooklyn producer Walrus Ghost—an artist who may be familiar to our regular readers—as one of today's XLR8R downloads. The remix precedes a new Walrus Ghost EP with guitarist Max Frankl twists COMBAT!'s original cut into more ambient-driven territory.
You can download the remix via WeTRansfer below, with COMBAT! available to purchase via Bandcamp.
