The Algorithm is Rémi Gallego, an electronic music composer from Toulouse, Midi-Pyrénées, France. Born October 7, 1989, he began releasing music under this name in 2009 following the dissolution of his former band Dying Breath. It's a fusion of several styles of electronic music with progressive metal, mathcore, and djent. For live performances, he uses an Akai APC40, a MIDI controller produced by the company Akai, co-developed with the German company Ableton, connected to a laptop running Ableton Live.

Label Profile 010: Heavy Wax

February 18th, 2015

HeavyWaxThrashHits

Yes, this is a MASSIVE fudge. Heavy Wax aren’t a label. They’re a shop. They’re not even a real physical shop. Heavy Wax is an online vinyl-only music shop founded last year, run by Nathan “Barley” “also-runs-Basick-Records” Phillips. We figured it was a good idea to grill the brains of the Basick Bossman as to why he’s gotten into the physical end of the musical business chain, and we’ll be damned if we can’t ham-fistedly fudge this into our ongoing Label Profile series because of it.

Having played two nights at the 3,500 capacity Camden Roundhouse before Christmas, this is a special little show by the St Albans hardcore crew organised by the mighty footwear champions of the alternative scene, Converse – they invested in the legendary venue, allowing it to remain open. Playing a FREE gig to just 350 people in this Oxford Street basement, it’s one of the hottest tickets tonight. We queued up and it was worth it.
