In middle school he started recording music with whatever was lying around the house. Thankfully his father played music in the 70′s and 80′s so he had some stuff to full around with. He started out doing the whole punk thing, which is definitely still in his life, but boring as hell to play anymore. He eventually started getting into “stranger” groups. Throbbing gristle is what really did it. After listening to there records, he started getting into synths and drum machines. HE WILL NEVER GO BACK to anything else.

Xander Harris began in the far reaches of 2009. A child left behind on the set of “Prince of Darkness”, Xander crawled from the backlot wreckage with a sequencer in one hand and a synth in the other ready to take over the dark dance floor. He trekked across the barren landscape of the southwest and decided to place his stasis machine in the warm goo-goo muck of Austin, TX. There, Xander learned of the powers of Chris Carter, Roland, Alesis, Korg, and on the 8th and 1/4 day, he called it good.

Expect Delays

10/07/2012 — 1 Comment

Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Expect Delays is an artist who tries not to fit into any music mould. With inspirations coming from all sides of the musical spectrum, he has found a home on the darker side of the rainbow. This is just a taste of more eerie workings to come.

Someone left the Italo edit compilation I:Robots on his lab computer circa 2005 and he’s been an italo fan ever since. His music is mainly influenced by the original electronic disco records made around the world in the early 80s, some recorded just a few blocks away from his apartment in Little Italy, Montreal.

The formatory apparatus is a solo project that was never intended to be spread or to be released. The songs are personal sketches of my emotions, daily life and attempts to defy the postmodernist emptyness of the current global social and cultural structures. No computers or midi-control is used in the making of this material. All songs are played live and arise pseudo-spontaneously by fucking around. None of the material can be reproduced. Songs are transferred from cassette to the computer. Just simple, fully analog, motorik-synth, minimal wave, hometaping, experiment music (or something).

Nové Mu?ra

10/07/2012 — Leave a comment

There are two things that a lot of human beings are obsessed with: sex and death. Nové M?ra makes music that bridges these two obsessions. All your daydreams, all your longings, all the people you ever loved but didn’t love you back, all your anguish, all your joy, all your fear, all the beauty that is just out of reach… This is what Nové M?ra makes music about. Nové M?ra is from Los Angeles, California.

We have the pleasure to announce The Scrap Mag’s new project: our first Compilation. The reason why we decided to create it, is on the first place, to give support to the underground music scene. The Scrap Mag’s goal is not only to remain faithful to its philosophy of sharing its musical discoveries, but also to offer our music selection in two different formats: digital and physical. Moreover, especially in Barcelona and Spain, we would like to promote this musical scene, giving all these bands the opportunity to come to the city and share their music with us.

All the profits that The Scrap Mag will obtain from Bandcamp will be entirely for the artist. On the other hand, the profits that The Scrap Mag will receive from this first compilation, will be invested on the creation of future compilations. Just a tip, a part from the CD edition, in order to pay tribute to our vinyl collector’s passion, we will be creating future editions in this format.

You can get this first compilation in Bandcamp, Lostracks Records (Barcelona) or via email: tothescrapmag@gmail.com If you want to order more than one copy via Bandcamp, please send us an email before buying.

We would like to give special thanks to all the artists that made this project come true. Also we want to underline the magnificent collaboration of Repli CD for its excellent CD production, to DDF Studio for the master edition, to Boyan Lazarov for his help, to Pablo Benito for the amazing artwork and to Lara Viñas for her PR and communication support to the  magazine since it came out. And last but not least, to Toni Baidez for his job becoming a part of the  new bands headhunter along with us.
