THE DEMIX // HAVOC RUN ---------------------------->

I. Step Fourth
II. Turbulence
III. Better World (dirt mix)
IV. The Turn

"“Step Fourth” opens the EP with some invitingly peppy instrumental hip-hop, and though things grow gothier and more industrial from there, there’s a hookiness that carries through all four tracks, even “The Turn,” the blustery nine-minute circus suite that closes the EP."
- Shepherd Express

"...dark, brooding electronic music that can only be described as intense, and that’s phrasing it lightly. Every track sounds like it could very well be the climax of a horror film, as is the case with the latest release, “Havoc Run”. It’s like sensory overload in a track; drums, pulsating synths, and god knows what else come at you from every angle... it’s totally original."
- Breaking and Entering

HAVOC RUN is the new 4 song EP of original music from THE DEMIX. Elements of experimental rock, metal, hip hop, soundtracks and noise are bent around each other and manipulated through his twisted electronic filter taking the listener on a journey that is both smooth & rough, light & dark; at times subtle & restrained, other times intense & explosive.

Based on a true story.

with: Ableton Live, Akai/Ableton Push 1, Akai APC40, MAudio Oxygen61, Technics 1200s Turntables, some records, Korg Kaoss Pad, Jackson Dinky guitar, a voice

"In an almost shamanistic manner, it was as if he were negotiating an exorcism between himself,
his instrument and those assembled to witness his machinated grooves that hovered somewhere on
the periphery of drum and bass and industrial, with the briefest of interludes to a more organic soulfulness (and with bits of vocal who-knows-what interspersed amid it all).
Exactly who was
being exorcised of what became almost immaterial as Demix worked his magic into increasingly intense, nearly seamless sonic highs until they would drop into the echoes of the crowd's collective memory."
- Shepherd Express, 2014

"The Demix delivers a set high in ferocity. If ever a man and machinery gave the appearance of volleying a spirit back and forth between each other in bouts of possession and exorcism,
The Demix has mastered that rarefied scenario.
- Shepherd Express, March 2015

"An eerily cinematic blast of unsettling, apocalyptic screeching and slippery, reptilian beats."
- The Onion AV Club
