Premiere: HAETHOR – Beautiful (Ruffian Ruffhouse Mix)

haethor beautiful

HAETHOR is the musical union of vocalist Amy Owens and producer/guitarist Howard “Merlin” Wulkan. The project is driven by their mutual passion for indie-pop.

The duo will present their self-titled debut album on May 25. Ahead of the LP’s release, we’re pleased to world premiere Howie Beno’s Ruffian Ruffhouse Mix of “Beautiful.”

Beno, a musical journeyman who’s worked as an engineer, remixer/producer and composer for Ministry, Depeche Mode, Grace Jones and Tom Jones, delivers an interpretation that’s dark and laden with industrial-strength breakbeats and operatic tension.

Beno says of his re-rub, “When Howard [Wulkan of HAETHOR] asked me if I would be interested in remixing ‘Beautiful,’ after I heard the song I jumped at the chance … it’s got such juicy bibs and bobs and an over-the-top stellar vocal performance from Amy [Owens] … Howard’s direction was perfect: ‘Dude, just go nuts.’ Well, that’s what I did!”

This month marks a professional milestone for ANNA, who is Barcelona-based. She’s set to make her debut on the recently revived and highly revered NovaMute, a label whose catalog includes seminal releases by techno legends such as Richie Hawtin to Joey Beltram.

ANNA’s Razor EP, which is out May 25, sonically depicts her impressive musical maturation. Simply put: she is in the creative zone and presenting tracks that are nothing short of transformative. (Fun fact: the title track evolved while playing her favorite Roland MKS-80, a vintage synth from 1985.

Ahead of ANNA’s much-anticipated set at The City Fox Experience’s Regenerate party in Brooklyn on Saturday, May 19, featuring Martin Buttrich, John Tejada (live), and more, we touched base with the globetrotting technocrat about five tracks dominating her sets. Continue Reading
