Following the success of past releases, Swiss-based production trio, Reverse Engineering present the “Duck & Cover EP”. “Duck & Cover” is the follow-up to the successful collaboration with Washington-based underground MC BLU RUM 13, well-known for his work with artists such as Luke Vibert, Mr Thing, Amon Tobin, and DJ Vadim.Notably influenced by the electronic scene, Reverse Engineering explores the dark sides of instrumental hip hop and focus on heavy and aggressive rhythms that build up the backbone of their pieces. The trio brings together intelligent electronic and underground hip-hop, built up with massive electric bass sounds, heavy electronic soundscapes and saturated hip-hop beats.

Look Mom, no helmet!
Our friends at The Daily Swarm continue to prove why we love them.
From TDS . . .
“What’s the next best thing to hopping on a plane to Mexico City to see one of Daft Punk’s last North American stops on the Alive 2007 tour on October 31? How about dressing up as Daft Punk for Halloween? We know you’re thinking about it, googling “Daft Punk Helmets” or “Daft Punk Masks” and salivating over the possibility of picking up an original pair for $65,000 (even though they’re absolutely not for sale) or wishing that that Alterian Inc., the special effects studio that Daft Arts used for the “Technologic” video and Electroma, had been more proactive in making an actual outfit commercially available. But making your Halloween wish come true is going to take some creative thinking and crafty skills.
For one idea, we asked the Daily Swarm reader Traci Kaye, a fashion designer at Foley + Corinna, for some advice on how to make a Daft Punk helmet on the cheap and she came up with a fantastic possibility, one-upping us by making it a full-body costume. For simplicity’s sake, Traci chose the summer concert encore version of Daft Punk for her costume design, and once she got past the idea of homemade fiber optics, the final outfit came together pretty fast.”

Mad At You
Some people get a little boozed and make a scene. Some get sauced and make a baby. Glen Brady and Dom Keegan made a band. “The Glass came about when Glen and me were drunk in Plant Bar one night and talked about making tracks. Two days later I went over to his house in Brooklyn and we made ‘Won’t Bother Me.’ Funny, when it got signed to Fine Records in Berlin we realized we lost the files (we hadn’t expected needing them after the session) and had to re-sing the vocals. All the remix versions have a totally different vocal recording than the original.”
You have to appreciate that kind of humility. A sort of, “Holy sh… people like it!” Now, with the release of their EP “Couple’s Therapy,” there’s even more to love.
Last year, the duo rented a cottage in Woodstock in an attempt to focus their efforts and dedicate themselves entirely to the formation of their EP. Dom recounts, “We are both living in a cottage in the mountains, swimming at the local swimming hole and making music all day and night.” Glen adds, “Our friend Tim from 33 Hz texted us ‘How are the Brokeback sessions going?’ We all still laugh at that and those recordings are still referred to as the BB sessions.”
One wonders: is that where the name Couple’s Therapy came from? According to Glen, a friend “once said we needed couple’s therapy, because we were arguing like old ladies. I think a lot of bands argue like married couples, I guess sex for (more…)
