Velvet Acid Christ Remixes Wumpscut. Two tracks.

December 13th, 2013 by Hexfix93


Yes, and I might make it three and dare Rudy to remix three of my new tracks off of Mauvais. And I might dare metropolis to release it as a new remix conflict series… I’m not sure though. But for sure, I have remixed two tracks for Wumpscut. Came about in a funny way, I saw on Facebook that he had posted a tattoo on someone’s arm. I begged him to go on tour with vac in summer of 2014. VAC would be his live band, and I would put a manikin in center stage and he could sing back stage and never ever show his face to the crowd. He denied me :( Instead asked if I would be up for some remixes. I was like, “SURE”. But after working with the songs. I am in love. I have a dream. Wumpscut has long been one of the few peers I ever saw as my greater in this genre. A modern idol to me. If some how I could be in Wumpscut in some way some day, this would be more like a dream coming to light.

Of all the bands in the scene in the 90s and 2000s. Wumpscut has made the best industrial songs, strong enough to carry club nights, the DAC charts and spawn a scene for 15 + years. I only wish I was as good. Some of my fans claim that I am better. Even Rudy said to me once on the phone that Calling ov The Dead Was a Masterpiece. Yes we used to talk on the phone back in the day. The only other bands that I look up to in the scene are Covenant (eskil and band), Snog(david my vegan brother), Haujobb(only up to solutions), Kmfdm(all). I credit Wumpscut, Snog, Haujobb, Covenant, KMFDM and Myself(VAC), for making Industrial strong in the 90s and 2000s. Sure some have come after and before. But hands down, I pick our generation over all others. Maybe I am being arrogant. We did it with out the big budgets and always with 1 or two brain childs and no big labels holding our hands. It is a new age now, some of us are still kicking, but the scene is almost completely dead now :( The closing of Das Bunker in LA is proof of this. So I am not going to pat myself on the back …..

I will however ride out the dying wave of the scene by playing as many live shows as I can, and releasing two more LPs. Doing as many remixes as I can. This is the beginning of the end folx. Wish us all luck, and let me know what you think about these words in this post by leaving a comment, now anyone can.

    man it’s going to suck to see you go man. you’ve been my inspiration of music and wumpscut as well. but that would be awesome. it needs to happen. really does.

  4. Chuck Hudnall Says:

    Though I am more of a metal head, VAC and wumpscut have always been my 2 favorite industrial bands/projects.

  5. Anonymous Says:

    Wow that’s a short list of bands, I would’ve thought more helped carry the industrial FLAg.

  6. Erik Tomren Says:

    Very interested to hear your remixes! And would love to see what Rudy would do as well. The “Remix War” concept was a great format, and it would be nice to see it start up again.

  7. Jesse Roberts Says:

    Trying to do as many remixes as you can.
    Does that mean you’re doing a special price to try to build up that list?
    How much are you charging for a remix?

  8. CAffeine CAnnibal Says:

    This is all sad. I don’t think that some bands went mainstream, rather, they just changed their style. It’s a real shame that classic industrial is dying. I hope that VAC and Wumpscut keep making albums.. And I really hope that Skinny Puppy makes more also — I will be seeing them live for the first time in February!

    Laibach … nuff said

    The scene is not dying, it’s evolving. And those who refuse to change with it are being left behind.

  11. jduszka Says:

    How about in the spirit of remix, you throw the fans something from maldire to play with?? VAC VS.FAN!! Love ya love your show!

  12. Chaosrebel Says:

    VAC you are one of the most amazing musicians. I liked some of the WUmpscut but it’s too selfindulgent and boring, your work is art.
    Have to say you have to survive so there’s nothign wrong with mutate a little. Dont go live today and fight tomorrow. You are inspiration.

  13. Tamsyn Says:

    You have an awesome band and I would love to hear what you do with those wumpscut songs. Please tour South Africa, it would be great to have some industrial bands visit us for a change. You will be surprised Of the following you have here :)

  14. Hexfix93 Says:

    CAffeine CAnnibal:The greater wrong of the right is Mainstream.

    Z: Yes some change, and changing with the scene? Um what are you talking about, No one is drawing big numbers or selling lots of records. No one, this change and being left behind? Sorry you are wrong. VNV is still on top, and he has not changed a whole lot..

  15. patrick Says:

    It died as soon as artists catered to the people at the clubs, rather than the people alone, listening in their rooms.It’s been reincarnated into four-to-the-floor garbage. Where did all the creativity go? The inspiration? It used to be that it would change us… open our minds… show us ourselves. Bryan you are guilty as well, I’m sorry to say. YOu and a small handful of others really helped me through alot, and educated me in a very spiritual way. Then, just like our entire society, it became so hollow and superficial. IS IT JUST ME?!?!?!?!
    Making a song that makes ONE person cry, is worth SOOO much more than making a song 1 million people buy. Am I just old now @ 31`? Have I lost MY passion? Or do others understand what I’m talking about??? PLEASE bring me back home with Mauvais… please… I need it… Thank you for letting me rant

  16. vex42 Says:

    Loved the remix wars between VAC and Funker Vogt!! Definitely want to see a remix conflict with :W: to happen!!!
    KMFDM was a huge influence on me back in ’97 (and continues to this date), one year before I first discovered VAC. I still spin heavy amounts of Angst, Money, and Xtort amongst their other albums and mixes (been on a kick of playing Rules as of late).
    I agree 100% on the bands that kept the underground scene going strong since the 90s and VAC is in excellent company with the ones listed there!! I feel that several industrial bands have lost what once made them great, others just end up disbanding, like Numb… it’s so sad. But, it’s better to go out with a bang than just melt away. Good Luck on Mauvais and the other lp, all the remixes and the tours!! We’ll be there till the end with you and shall await your return ever after!!!

    the great talk about ideas, the average talk about things, the small talk about other people

  18. alx Says:

    Covenant, KMFMD, VAC, these are between my preferred industrial bands.

    It´s up to you stopping or not, but I think your fans will like your work regardless of the music style. Musicians evolve, so does the scene. Your european fans are waiting for you :)

    Rudy stole one of your songs. He made ur Velvet Pill into Gabi Grausam. There’s a first finished remix for ya.

  20. BlasphemeScheme Says:

    My two biggest influences in industrial EBM coming together as one, damn that’s a dream come true!! As for clubs and the scene, with mainstream EDM at the top of the charts, clubs are coming back which leaves room for Goth nights and Industrial groups to infiltrate. As long as there are artists who want to play this type of music and fans that want to listen, there will always be a scene. Fuck the critics who think the music’s changed too much to be meaningful. I’m 30 years old myself, been into this since I was nineteen and have no plans on turning my back on you, Rudy or any of the other awesome groups in this genre. Thank you for everything so far and I look forward to enjoying many more years of both you and Rudy’s work!

    I remember my first two CD purchases in this scene were Bunker Gate 7 and Thanks for Nothing when they came out in my local shop. Then I made friends with a couple guys in my town (including a guy that claimed to chat with you) that were in the scene and quickly discovered VAC. For me, VAC has surpassed :w: and certainly gets more play time in my headset. Having said that, I would love to see Rudy finally tour! Keep prodding him!

  22. Joe Stone Says:
