VIDEO PREMIERE : Datacode – Wraithmachine (Roel Funcken Rework)

There are simply times when words do not capture the sound. It displaces the air from the tiny speakers in my headphones and enters my brain, like a virus with a sickness. It infects my inner process and freeloads off my mind. In this state I am a puppet, mechanically spasming to its message, while it is covertly feeding off my neurons, rearranging DNA. And when it’s finished, somehow I am more substantial, inhabited by a new awareness, shadow spirit, and insight. I am forever different. Welcome to Datacode‘s Wraithmachine.

Datacode’s cyberpunk operetta Wraithmachine unfurls the poignant story of life born within the virtual machinery of our own creation, the emergence of a conscious entity within the confinement of a limited system, an expression of the horror of that entrapment.

This unique product on MethLab comes not only with a separate set of aural reworks, but also with visual interpretations by Datacode himself, in addition to a 35-minute Wraithmachine AV feature, which was released as a lossless limited edition USB piece. The additional remixes include tracks by Flint Kids, Barbarix, Calqa, Mach Weichen, and Roel Funcken (among a few others), the latter of which we are proud to premiere on Headphone Commute as another re-imagining of the original (including the visuals themselves).
