TUNE Elementz Of Noize feat. Jim Sclavunos - Society
Elementz Of Noize’s new single sees him teaming up with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ multi-instrumentalist Jim Sclavunos, who delivers an inspired, scowling, half-spoken half-sung vocal which twists and turns through Killing Joke-styled guitars and thumbing beats.
Deep lyrical mastery (with more than a passing relevance to our current, chaotic times) permeates soaring pad synths and bouncing basslines, as EON and Jim Sclavunos, two dark lords from totally different parts of the musical world, join forces to create a powerful fusion of rock meets dnb. No boundaries here -- just known unknowns and unknown unknowns…
A key member of the Bad Seeds (and also a founder of offshoot band Grinderman), Jim Sclavunous has also formed his own NY-based musical ensemble the Vanity Set. Jim is a fundamental part of the music scene having also played with iconic bands like Sonic Youth, Teenage Jesus & the Jerks, and The Cramps. when Jim is not performing (or producing artists like the Horrors, Gogol Bordello, etc.) you can catch him on his monthly slot on Soho Radio.
Elementz Of Noize has had an illustrious career from the original jungle days of SOUR Records with some classic jungle tunes such as ‘Hit the Deck’, ‘Stick Up’ (Featuring MC Det) through to some atmospheric and intelligent DnB classics on Emotif Records such as ‘Neon’, Astral’ & ‘Clock’ (which was a massive favourite of the legendary John Peel who included the track on his ‘Fabric Live’ LP). To being the first artist to release on M Ocean recordings - with his single ‘Law Of The Jungle’ - and bringing the Noize!
