Switchblade |Victor Entertainment, 1994|

Olive - Mixed By - Coil, The Hero Inside - Mixed By - John Fryer, Thirsty Fly - Mixed By - Raymond Watts, SKF10047 - Mixed By - Autechre, Nothing - Mixed By - Raymond Watts, Slice - Mixed By - Raymond Watts, Broken English - Mixed By - John Fryer, Merry Christmas On Mars - Mixed By - Sugar J, Information - Mixed By - Meat Beat Manifesto, Visual Cortex - Mixed By - Coil, Fetid Air - Mixed By - Raymond Watts, Arbor Vitate - Mixed By - John Fryer, Cold Light - Mixed By - Keith LeBlanc

Schaft it's a band founded by the two Japanese musicians Maki Fujii (Soft Ballet) and Hisashi Imai (Buck-Tick), who decided to make Raymond Watts (Pig, KMFDM) to join the cooperation. There are a lots of remixes on this release made for such bands like: Coil, Autechre, Meat Beat Manifesto, Sugar J and the producers as follows: John Fryer (worked with NIN, Clan of Xymox, This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins, White Zombie, Love and Rockets etc.) and Keith LaBlanc (worked with Living Colour, Peter Gabriel, The Cure, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, James Brown, Trevor Horn, Seal, R.E.M., The Rolling Stones, Annie Lennox itp).

This music sounds very much exciting and ambitious. We got different songs which vary from heavy sounds to a bit perverse songs thanx to Watts involvement ;) Listen to Nothing, Slice or Fetid Air - the last one with the main theme taken from the Mission Impossible movie. There are also fresh and even dance songs like Broken English or very soft, ambient and developing compositions like Olive and Visual Cortex. It's worth to mention that Schaft turned into Schwein in 2001. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes. See a Legal Note for the copyrights below)

Switch |Victor Entertainment, 1994|

Arbor Vitate (Tilt Mix By Dillon Gallagher), Cold Light (Nicht Regelrecht By Fujii Maki), Nothing Personal (Remixed By Raymond Watts), SKF10047 (Life In Net Mix By Logic Freaks), Visual Cortex (The Reload Re-Definition By Reload), Information (Disinformation By Meat Beat Manifesto), Cold Light (Keim By Fujii Maki)

I do recommend those remixes because they are a good example to show how several bands can work together on rather characteristic songs thanx to the proper choice and musicians abilities. They made kick ass versions. There are no stamps like: "Hello, we made it - Mean Beat Manifesto!" Amongst the remixers there are Raymond Watts (Pig, KMFDM), Meat Beat Manifesto, Logic Freaks and many others. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes.
