The Wild Army Q & A

We asked the mercenaries and outlaws of The Wild Army a few questions.

If you had to join an army, which one would it be?

Mr. Tea – The Army of Dreamers (ask Kate Bush).
Benjamin Eh (Ben Arnold) – The Salvation Army.
Leca Lecara – Wild Army.
Leon Sweet – Vinyl Rotator & Button Flicker – Rebel Alliance Special Forces, with Chewy by my side.

What’s the wildest night you’ve ever had out?

Mr Tea – A night that ended with an orgy with the entire cast and crew of Lord Of The Rings still in costume.
Benjamin Eh – A night out with the Salvation Army at Amnesia, 1983. I still have the trombone burns.
Leca – Must be some of them good old rave nights back in the days. Used to go proper out of hands.
Leon Sweet – Ha! I’ll save that for my memoirs 

Favourite monster flick?

Mr Tea – The Thing. Easily.
Benjamin Eh – Jaws II.
Leca – Godzilla. Insane special effects!
Leon Sweet – Jaws, that dead dude in the bottom of the boat made me jump so fuckin’ hard I kneed myself in the face and cut my lip watching that film as a kid.

What bit of studio gear are you currently rocking the hardest at the moment?

Mr Tea – I just picked up a rare Soviet Synthesizer called the Opus. Pics to come.
Benjamin Eh – The Korg Minilogue.
Leca – Riding my beloved Elektron Trinity rack, Octa, Rytm & A-4.
Leon Sweet – Maschine Studio, Fifth Mode was produced entirely on it.

Releases

2 Billion Beats – Revolutions / Warm Feeling

It’s been a long time coming but 2 Billion Beats’ debut album is ready to pop and here’s the second EP to be taken from it.

Revolutions struts its way onto the dance floor for a track that is deep, solid and aimed squarely between the eyes. It features some heavy cosmic squelches & squeaks before an arp hits to shift things up a gear to the setting marked ‘heavy”. This will take you to the stars & back whilst stopping off in the basements for a top up.

Warm Feeling is a melting pot of jacking-disco-jazz tinged house music with the silky vocals of Dieter that perfectly partners up with the soaring pads, busty Rhodes & firecracker percussion. It delivers a surefire selection for all the party jocks.

Norway’s Magnus International steps in fresh from one of the albums of the year on Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp . He takes Revolutions and straddles techno and house for a mix that is pure peak time heads down tackle for tougher floors.

Finally Italy’s DJ Steevo goes full on dance floor nu-disco shaker for his mix of Warm Feeling. He takes the B-line in to an NRG direction, thumps the drums and lets the Rhodes do it’s work whilst using synths and delayed vocals to give the track dynamics.

Justin Robertson: “Top stuff on the Magnus remix”

Mugwump: “Loving the original of Revolutions”

Sean Johnston/Hardway Bros: “DJ Steevo doing the biz!”

Discodromo: “Great! love the Magnus International remix”

Alkalino: “Revolutions original and Magnus International Remix are the ones for me, thks!”

DJ Rocca: “Really like it, especially the Magnus International remix”

Fingerman: “Great stuff! Loving the remixes too! Roll on the LP :)”

Reza Attar: “Love the DJ Steevo mix!”

DJ Paulette: “Revolutions – Hot Since 82 must surely be peeing his pants over this one! Warm Feeling is a curve ball – wonky synth disco.
Revolutions – is a loopfest for dark corners and the DJ Steevo remix is a slo-mo disco banger!”

Duncan Gray: “Wow, loving that Magnus remix of Revolutions. nice one. thanks!”

Ed Mahon (Cowbbell Radio) : “Revolutions is a sure fire winner, big hit on dancefloors! Loving the DJ Steevo remix of Warm Feeling too, excellent stuff! Welcome back”
