Centred around the creative hubs of Athens, Crete and London early 2020’s ‘Proto Tekno’ album existed at a psychic intersection between the ruins of crumbling infrastructure and an intimidating future dystopia. A potent and pulverising collection of incendiary jams fuelled by the modern age yet transcending it with vicious style. Equal parts groove-driven mantra, red blooded freakout and experiment onslaught, this is the sound of a fearless band raging against the dying of the light.

Fast forward to late 2020 & the world feels like it has changed, so during the first wave of COVID-19, Kooba Tercu reached out to artists with a similar sense of kinship they admired and asked them to freely re-interpret the songs from Proto Tekno. Bringing together artists who are close to electronic, expressive and noise rock music, Proto Tekno (remixes) serves both as a channel of communication as well as inspiration for the expanding world of Kooba Tercu.

The band commented on their choices:

Shit and Shine remix - A filthy but focused version of Cemento Mori that feels like your head just hit the pavement with a bang from Rocket Recording’s favorite bad boy.

Turbo Teeth remix - Improvised electronics from the ‘highly idiosyncratic, unstable and addictive sound of Turbo Teeth’ deliver one of the most elegant drop-downs in the collection. Very active in the Athenean scene, Giorgos Axiotis is also a member of the very interesting Untitled-1 label. He is the 1/2 of Free Piece of Tape with Bill Anagnos and he has been a member of Balinese Beast, Tom Cruisin’ and Holefold.

Echo canyon rework - One of our brothers and Kooba Tercu member reworks the bassline of ‘Kamehame ha’ beyond recognition to create a heavy tune for the dance floor.

Mr. Clarinet remix - Mr. Clarinet has been going from strength to strength and is one of our favorite new artists in the greek scene. After his recent release on the Phormix label, on Boiler he delivers a hardware-based electronic banger for Proto Tekno’s most electronic-leaning track.

Kostadis remix - KOSTADIS is the experimental solo project of Kostadis Michail. His interpretation of Puppy Pile brings forward his incredible musicality by incorporating new narratives into the song based on synths and other-wordly sounds. Musician at Wham Jah, Sclavos, Acid Baby Jesus, In Trance 95, Lost Bodies.

De Santis remix - Fair Game gets a make-over, removing the rhythmic movement of the original synth-line and going even deeper into the song's ritualistic core. Apulia-born percussionist and producer, Daniele De Santis is also a prolific music instruments creator as well as the mind behind Dromoscope platform-label.

Negra Branca remix - Negra Branca, who has been one of our favorite discoveries from all the parallel projects satelliting the Gnod family, brings her unique meditating sounds into the heavy Qasan as a fitting closure of this collection of remixes.

These disparate influences coalesce vividly into an invigorating and intimidatingly confident assault on the senses.

It’s a weapon of psychic defence just as much as a love letter to the three ‘R’s of repetition, repetition and repetition.
