San Francisco's Dark Entries label (who we took a closer look at in a recent Get Familiar feature) has announced plans to issue its first remix EP, enlisting the likes of Silent Servant and John Tejada to rework Psychic TV's 1989 acid-house track "Alien Be-In."
A group founded by Throbbing Gristle members Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson following the band's break-up in 1981, Psychic TV is said to have crafted "Alien Be-In" using an "E-mu Emax Sampler and an Alesis MMT-8 sequencer" which combine with "vocal samples... from a tape American investigative reporter Don Bolles sent to Genesis." For its upcoming remix EP, Dark Entries will present a remastered version of the original track along with a new "Mono Mix" from Psychic TV member Fred Giannelli. On the record's b-side will be Los Angeles techno maven Silent Servant's remix of the track along with an additional collaborative remix from Silent Servant and John Tejada.
Ahead of the Alien Be-In Remix 12" record's official release on January 13 (of next year), Silent Servant's solo contribution to the effort can be streamed in full below.
