PRESENTS "SFTWR" - NEW REMIX ALBUM OUT MARCH 2012

   
Release notes
One year after the release of "Hardware", here comes its successor: "SFTWR".

"SFTWR" is a remix album featuring 15 Agent Side Grinder tracks. It compiles tracks from all ASG's studio albums, with emphasis on their acclaimed latest album "Hardware" (2012). Most tracks are previously unreleased (including cuts by Rude 66, MF/MB and Jasper TX), while some have appeared on compilations or singles.

The album incorporates a wide range of styles; electro, ebm, experimental, techno and even sunshine pop, genres that all can be traced in Agent Side Grinders body of work.

The contributors shape a bold, eclectic album that can be enjoyed on its own or as a compliment to the originals.

"SFTWR" also comes with a accompanying ASG video: "Mag 7", with a deep ambient treatment by Jasper TX. In this almost 10 minute long video you will follow Agent Side Grinder as they enjoy themselves on a Friday night. Watch the video below.

13. Die To Live (Blackstrap RMX)
Remixed by Jonatan of Blackstrap. It is expected that with the expansion of Blackstrap into the body, extant spiritual systems will decline and disintegrate. Interim systems will emerge that will bridge the gap between the limited understanding of old world systems and full consciousness and full understanding characteristic of fully embodied consciousness. The forthcoming album, Monument, will be released in 2013.

15. Mag 7 (Jasper Tx RMX)
For eleven years, Jasper TX was the musical moniker of Sweden's Dag Rosenqvist. Using electric and acoustic guitar, piano, pump organ, melodica, glockenspiel, voice and various other instruments as a foundation for his compositions, Dag created his own musical universe where elements of drone, improvisation, noise and lo-fi aesthetics are all filtered through a skewed, melodic pop sensibility, often resulting in something quite unique. As of 2012 the Jasper TX moniker was put to rest. Dag Rosenqvist is currently residing in Gothenburg, Sweden.
